Throw Out Those Stinky Fashion Mags and Pick Your Signature Scent the Right Way

What: Sephora’s Deluxe Fragrance Sampler ($50)

Why: If you currently want to find a new signature scent, you can either subscribe to a hundred fashion magazines and hope their potent scent strips introduce you to your new favorite fragrance, or let department store spritzers splash every bare inch of your skin and hope that something suits your fancy. Luckily, Sephora’s found a better way.

Sephora’s scent samplers are kind of genius. Pick up a deluxe collection of the makeup purveyor’s best sellers, test drive the 10 scents using the handy travel-sized atomizer, pick your perfect match, and cash in the included voucher for a full-sized bottle of your favorite. Using this system, there’s no way you’ll end up with a huge bottle of something that smelled fabulous in a magazine but stinks to high heaven on your skin. And if you gift this set (or the slightly more expensive Collector’s Edition sampler with seven mini bottles), you’ll be known as the friend with great scent sense—and not the girl who thoughtlessly picked up the first bottle of perfume she came across.
