Fragrance Recommendations to Haul During the Sephora Sale

I receive a small commission if you shop through my link.


There are literally so many great fragrance sets to choose from this Holiday season! Not only are they great but don’t forget the fact that many are fantastic values plus add to the fact that the Sephora 20% Off Sale is coming this week for Rouge VIBs and you got an even better deal.

Sephora also happens to deviling into the niche fragrance world as well lately. So, if you’re looking for something truly unique there are quite a few niche brands worth exploring at

You’re officially off your fragrance ban, here’s some fragrance recommendations to haul during the Sephora Sale! Some are even easy enough to blind buy!

Tocca Meet the Girls Fragrance Collection ($62) is back and as awesome as ever! I got it last year and was very pleased with the set. It’ll make a perfect gift but more importantly it’ll introduce you to almost all of the Tocca fragrances available and help you decide if you need to splurge on full sizes! This set includes 10 x 0.15 oz perfume sprays!


Atelier Cologne is a unique fragrance experience with great layering abilities! The Nécessaire Curated by Sylvie Ganter & Christophe Cervasel ($75) and Nécessaire Nomade III Gift Sets are two fragrance sets I can’t rave or recommend enough! If you want to have a true unique niche perfume experience these sets will gift it to you!



Can’t decide on a single brand? No problem! Sephora Favorite Fragrance Sampler Sets are a great gift to give and to get. Why? Because each curated set has a selection of bestselling sample fragrance as well as a gift card in each box to purchase a full-size of one of the scents you liked the most from the set. Fragrance is such a personal experience and this makes for a great way to gift it to friends and allow them to decide for themselves which full-size fragrance they want.


If you haven’t read my review on the new Chanel N°5 L’Eau now is a good time to do so because this unique, younger sister to Chanel N°5 should be on your wish list this season! This is the fragrance for those of us that always wanted to wear Chanel N°5 but simply couldn’t stand how it smelled. It’s a lot more fun, a lot more youthful, but still maintains the elegance of the original juice! Totally a Muse Approval.

Trouble deciding on one of the Elizabeth and James fragrances or just wanting to try out both of the new fragrances they introduced but not wanting to commit to a full size? This Elizabeth and James Find Your Nirvana Rollerball Set is for you because it not only includes the two newest scents, Nirvana Rose and Nirvana Bourbon, but also the scents that started it all, Nirvana Black and Nirvana White.


This Pinrose Rollerball Wardrobe Gift Set ($60) will introduce you to the fine art of fragrance layering. It includes 10 rollerballs (0.1 oz each) which can be mixed, matched, and cocktailed to create a range of different scents. If you’re feeling rather overwhelmed, it’s totally ok to wear them individually as well!


Any of the Etat Libre d’Orange Perfumes are a fantastic introduction to the world of niche fragrances but might I suggest Like This? This beautiful, feminine fragrance has a fresh burst of pumpkin mixed with notes of Ginger, Tangerine, Neroli, and Vetiver. Truly it’s a unique and must have fragrance. One of my personal favs! But no one expects you to decide on one Etat Libre d’Orange Fragrance which is why this Eau de Parfum Discovery Set for $19 is perfect to introduce you to their range!

Ah Clean! Who doesn’t love a fresh, clean scent? Clean introduced a new line of Reserve Fragrance that the beauty world has been abuzz with the past year. Now is a good time to check them out courtesy these two great sets. The Clean Reserve Travel Spray Layering Collection ($45) gets you 6 generously sized 0.17 oz Clean Reserve scents to try out or go small with the Reserve Rollerball Layering Collection that includes 5 (0.10 oz) rollerballs!

Derek Lam 10 Crosby Fragrances are an interesting collection of scents that I’ve overindulged in (I LOVE Silent St) but I’d highly suggest checking out the Discovery Set before indulging in the full sizes because as gorgeous as these scents are I found them a little weak for the price tag. This set will give you a feel for all 10 of the scents in the collection without breaking the bank on a single purchase!


Christian Louboutin introduced three new fragrances earlier this Fall but they don’t come cheap! Now you can try out all three with this Women’s Parfum Collection Sampler that includes all three scents in 0.16 oz!


An easy to buy and love fragrance that you’ll love without every having smelled it? Paco Rabanne Olympéa! This sensual and addictive mix of Green Mandarin, Ginger Lily, Hydroponic Jasmine, Salted Vanilla, and Sandalwood is a classic, feminine fragrance that’s as gorgeous as it is timeless. Love it already? Pick up this Paco Rabanne Olympéa Gift Set which includes a full-size version, a mini, and Body Lotion!


I just got into the world of Tom Ford and it’s like a vortex sucking me in. I’ve always felt his fragrances were a little too overwhelming for me but many are actually very wearable. But they are pretty expensive…! God news! He now has an All Over Body Spray Formula that will set you back a mere $67 bucks! That’s hecka cheap compared to $225 per bottle. My fav? The very sexy Tobacco Vanille! And for Velvet Orchid lovers, this gorgeous Gift Set brings together a 1.7 oz Eau de Parfum Spray and 2.5 oz Hydrating Emulsion for layering!


And last but never least this Histoires de Parfums Discovery Set ($18) is a perfect introduction to the world of fine niche fragrance! It includes 10 of unique fragrances that are simply gorgeous!


I hope you enjoyed this fragrance recommendations post and it helped you decide on some new and exciting fragrances to try.
