Perfume Value and Discovery Sets to Grab During the Sephora Sale

I’m a perfume junkie and I tend to blind buy too many fragrances. I’m pretty lucky though as I’ve only ever come across a scrubber (a fragrance I hate so much I need to scrub off my skin with soap and water) once or twice in my life! I have to admit though the last few year’s Sephora has done a bang up job of introducing really great Discovery Sets that reduces the risk of wasting money on a scent I’ll hate. Most of these sets contain an entire catalog’s worth of fragrances from a single brand which means you can try EVERYTHING out before indulging in a full-size version of the scent.

Here are a few Perfume Value and Discovery Sets to grab during the Sephora Sale which starts tomorrow (October 26th).

Comptoir Sud Pacifique Discovery Collection ($16 after discount)
I do not like sample vials as I find them messy but considering Comptoir Sud Pacifique fragrances don’t come cheap this little set is worthy of a haul! I got mine earlier in the Summer and loved it! It includes 7 of Comptoir Sud Pacifique’s scents like Vanilla Abricot and Vanilla Extreme! All yummy and gourmand!

Juliette Has a Gun Discovery Kit ($16 after discount)
This little guy is always top on my list of recs! Juliette Has a Gun is a niche brand with niche pricing (ouch!) but this set will get you 7 of their scents as well as a larger 0.135 Travel Spray of Not a Perfume for very little money!

By Rosie Jane Discovery Set ($24 after discount)
As per my prior post a few months ago, By Rose Jane is now sold at Sephora! And you can try every single one of their scents (and an exclusive one) in this set! The set includes 5 x 0.1 oz perfumes in a giftable box!

Commodity The Portfolio Set ($32 after discount)
I cannot recommend this particularly set enough as it truly is a master set of Commodity’s best fragrances! You get 15 fragrances all together in 0.07 oz sizes from the Black, Platinum, and White Collectioin which can be mixed, matched, and cocktailed together (or worn indvidually) to create your very own unique fragrance!

Viktor&Rolf Magic Discovery Set ($108 after discount)
I actually overindulged in the Magic Fragrances during Sephora’s last sale! I blind purchased several bottles during the sale and didn’t regret a one. I think V&R did a wonderful job with these and the scents are quite different from the darker gourmand that is Flower Bomb. I’d highly recommend checking this out as I feel like the scents are not only unique but very niche-like with the notes used! Plus the set is a value considering per bottle cost!

The 7 Virtues Peace Blend Box ($22 after discount)
7 Virtues is a relatively new niche brand to Sephora that concentrates on natural ingredients. I purchased and reviewed the blend box recently and quite loved it. It contains the house’s entire collection of scents in 0.05 oz mists which enables you to try before you buy!

Clean Reserve Set ($38 after discount)
Clean’s newish Reserve Collection isn’t cheap per a bottle but they do make it very easy to try their scents before you spend money on these unique blends by introducing a constant assortment of gift sets. This latest one includes 6 generously (0.17 oz each) perfume mists of some of their most popular scents!

Moschino Mini Gift Set ($13 after discount)
I’m eagerly awaiting Moschino’s next Toy fragrance but as we wait you might want to experience their ultra cute Fresh Couture scents! This sets get you both the original and pink version in 0.17 oz sizes.

Atelier Cologne Perfume Travel Palette ($15 after discount)
I’m constantly recommending Atelier to anyone and everyone because their scents are so unique and special! Orange Sanguine is simply yummy with it’s tart, zesty notes! Pair it with Vanille Insensée to create a creamy, orange creamsicle scent! A great way to experience the line without dropping a ton of cash is with some of their sample sets! This one includes 7 x 0.07 oz mists (include Orange Sanguine and Vanille Insensée)!

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.

    The Brooklyn Ellis sets are a good buy too! Some of the scents don’t wear very long on me, but I think they’re all lovely.

    Absolutely adore everything from Atelier Cologne and second that rec so much; everything I have from them is top notch. I wish Sephora would carry more of the line (at least online), but I’m lucky enough to have a boutique nearby!

    • Isabella Muse

      ITA about the Brooklyn Ellis set! I got the mini one last year and had my eye on the new larger one! YES ;-D I’m glad someone also agrees on Atelier. Their scents are just so lovely ;-D ITA! I do wish they had the complete line! Likewise! There’s one in Nolita which is quite nice!

      • Dot

        Get the larger one! I bought it and love it, and it’s nice that the samples are pretty generous so you get to really try it a few times and see how it works. The trouble is now that I want all of them…

    I love this idea in theory, and less in practice, as by description, I only really like ~2 of the scents in many sets. Phlur has a three selection on S, but if you go to the Phlur site, you can select any three you wish, rather than the preselected 3 on S. Many of the brands on S have travel size rollerballs/ spritzes in the < 30 range. That's how I do it . I'd rather have more of two 7 virtues than a smaller vial of all. Same with Commodity. That's what I decided to do with the men's Creed, as well. I only craved 2 in the set, and their vials are Tiiiiiny…and will save for a small bottle (small is usually just under 300 for Creed) of one I drop dead love. Noticed on the NM/Nordie's sale that Goutal has dropped the 'Annick,' in favor of Goutal Paris. I love both their girly scents and the men's. I'd totally go for a sampler of Goutal. They used to refill your bottles for cheaper than repurchase, BITD, at Bloomie's. Can you imagine? I did it a fair amount, as I had 2-3 Goutal frequent flyer scents.

    The 7 Virtues set is sooo nice. I love them all. I got them during the last 20% off sale.

    I tried the Rosie perfume after you blogged about it….and well I am OBSESSED! I just wish it lasted a little longer on my skin. Do you find that it fades a bit quickly?

    • Isabella Muse

      It fades on me too sadly! I wear unscented body cream and this seems to help it to stay a little longer 🙂 Juliette has a Gun is another house I love but for the price I cringe so much because it disappears in seconds!

      • Dot

        I have this problem with Rosie too—I’m not sure it even goes longer than two hours on me no matter how much I use. It’s such a bummer!

        I haven’t tried a ton of Juliette Has a Gun but have a bottle of Lady Vengeance and that always lasts a full day on me.

        • Isabella Muse

          I get about two hours too! I can extend it every so slightly with unscented moisturizer! I dunno, might be my body chemistry but Juliette does not last on me at all 🙁
