Christmas Gift Guide: Perfume Sample Sets

As I’ve mentioned before, perfumes sample sets (usually 2-3 ml) and discovery collections (at least 5 ml-10ml) are some of the best beauty gifts you can get!

It can be risky to get a full sized bottle, unless you know for sure what kind of scent the person loves. If not, getting a collection of samples is always a great idea, as there are so many new fragrances to discover.

I have already mentioned  Rouge Bunny Rouge and Juliette Has A Gun. I also have such sets from Jo Loves and Jo Malone.

The scents are:

  • Le Petit Grain
  • Rose en Noir

  • La Pluie

Yes, I know that there are websites where you can get samples. But if we are talking abut a present for someone, it is nice to get it from the official retailer beautifully packaged. It is all about the details.

Which brands would you like to see bringing out such collections?
