Sephora Favorites Perfume Travel Sampler A Cheap and Awesome Holiday Gift

This was provided to me by a brand for review and I receive a small commission if you shop using the links in this post but all opinions are my own.


Fragrance is a really personal thing and super difficult to gift but this Sephora Favorites Perfume Travel Sampler makes it oh so simple to gift a friend or a family member a selection of fantastic fragrance. Not to mention it also gives them a coupon to purchase their favorite scent from the set.

Here’s how it works!


There’s one person in my life that I know I’ll never fail when shopping fragrance for them. My mom! My mom is not a makeup person, she’s not a skincare lover, she’s a simple, salt of the Earth kind of mom. She washes her face with Ivory Soap, she doesn’t apply a lick of foundation, blush, or any other color cosmetics, and I don’t think she’s ever even applied lip balm. But fragrance? She loves perfume! Any and all fragrances! She’s lives in a world where she thinks Jean Nate is the height of sophistication. I know when I buy my mom a fragrance chances are I’ll get it right because I know exactly what she’ll like. And even when I miss the mark? She ends up liking it anyway! She just loves perfume.

But not everyone is like that. Fragrance is really a personal experience and what my nose loves, yours might not like!

If you’re in need of an affordable fragrance but torn about which fragrance to pick up this Sephora Favorites Travel Sampler is great. It includes 7 fragrances from mid range and high end fragrance houses as well as niche ones like Atelier and Elizabeth and James.

You get:

  • Atelier Cologne Bergamote Soleil Cologne Absolue Perfume Spray
  • ChloΓ© Eau de Parfum Spray
  • Dolce&Gabbana Light Blue Eau de Toilette Dabber
  • Elizabeth and James Nrivana Black Eau de Parfum Spray
  • Marc Jacobs Mod Nior Eau de Parfum Spray
  • Prada Candy Eau de Parfum Spray
  • Yves Saint Laurent Black opium Eau de Parfum Spray


The recipient of your gift can try out all seven scents and when she or he settles on a favorite they can redeem the scent coupon that comes with the set for a 0.04 to 0.06 oz perfume spray of their favorite scent!

The set is $25 but if you’re VIB Rouge you can use your 20% Off and get it for $20 at

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse. If you’re that person feel free to reach out and leave a comment or follow me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Bloglovin‘.

    Your post about your mom made me smile! I can totaly relate. I’m very functional when it comes to makeup but frag world is a kingdom of its own. Feels like you can never get tired of exploring, trying and evolving. Your fragrance posts are in a league of their own. thanks!!

    • Isabella Muse

      omg thank you, Gali! I always feel like no one reads my fragrance posts πŸ™‚ I’m so happy you enjoy them! and I agree! There’s ALWAYS a new adventure to be had in fragrance!

    I might add this to my list for the sephora sale. I’ve been wanting to try black opium, and it being in a sampler is excellent because there might be something else I like. Plus I love the small sizes.

    I’ve been adding and removing this from my cart all week in anticipation of the sale starting. I know I like Black Opium (from sampling before) and I know I hate Light Blue (and those dabber tops lol) and I haven’t had much luck with like Atelier sooooooo I don’t know if I want to buy it, try the other stuff and then just buy the Black Opium or what. I’m so fickle with this VIB sale lol
