My Christmas List Part 1 — Fragrance

Sephora Scent Sampler Best Sellers
Sephora Scent Sampler Best Sellers

Hi all! I’ve decided to make each Monday in December leading up until Christmas my Wish List Blog. I’m going to review products I am intrigued by and really want to own! 

I think fragrance is a natural Christmas gift because it isn’t an item a woman buys every day. It’s more of a treat, and because of this, it makes a great gift.  But unless you know the exact scent someone wants, it can be a tricky gift to give. 

That’s why I think that the Sephora Brand Scent Sampler Bestsellers For Her ($50.00 USD) is the perfect gift when you’re not sure which fragrance a woman would like. This set includes ten samples of fragrances to try. Once she’s chosen the scent she likes most, she can use the enclosed gift voucher that can be redeemed at any Sephora store for a full-size bottle of any one of the samples included.

The scents in this collection include:

– Aquolina Pink Sugar
– Bulgari Omnia Crystalline
– Calvin Klein Euphoria
– Givenchy Very Irresistible Givenchy Sensual
– Gwen Stefani L.A.M.B.
– Lavanila Vanilla Grapefruit
– Marc Jacobs Daisy
– Philosophy Amazing Grace
– Stella McCartney Stella
– Vera Wang Princess                                                                                                               

This is the perfect fantasy gift for me. I love the thought of trying out ten scents, then choosing a full-sized bottle of one. I already own Amazing Grace (and am almost out of it), so I know I could always get another bottle of that if I don’t like any of the other scents. The best way to choose is to wear it for a couple of days. It is also good to wear a fragrance to bed, and if it doesn’t bother you, it is a good choice. 

Fresh Sake

A fragrance I have received samples of and worn in all situations (including to bed) is Fresh Sake ($75.00 USD). I love this velvety, musky fragrance. It is soft enough to use every day, but special enough to use for an evening out.

The notes include Langsat Fruit, Grapefruit, Ginger, White Peach Absolute, Lotus Flower, Lily of the Valley, Osmanthus, Vanilla, and Musk.

The thing I really like about fragrance is how it completes your look as you get ready for the day. I spritz my scent on last, then I know I am ready to go! New scents are a special way to change up how you feel.

Happy shopping!
