Sephora Favorites Perfume Travel Sampler Review

Sephora Favorites Perfume Travel Sampler April 2019 - Info Card Top

Here is the info sheet for the perfumes included. On the other side is the information you need to redeem for your rollerball or travel spray, so make sure to keep this safe!

Sephora Favorites Perfume Travel Sampler April 2019 - Chloé Chloé Nomade Eau de Parfum Front

Chloé Chloé Nomade Eau de Parfum, 0.04 oz – Estimated Value $3.64 (Certificate redeems for 0.33 oz Travel Spray that costs $30)

This perfume was a winner, with notes of oakmoss, freesia, Mirabelle liquor. It is a free-spirited floral that makes me want to wear a flower crown while I walk around barefoot. This had the staying power to hang with me all day, but I wouldn’t classify it as a “strong” fragrance- it is definitely more light and airy.

Sephora Favorites Perfume Travel Sampler April 2019 - Giorgio Armani Acqua di Gioia Eau de Parfum Front

Giorgio Armani Acqua di Gioia Eau de Parfum, 0.04 oz – Estimated Value $2.91 (Certificate redeems for 0.34 oz Rollerball that costs $24)

I’ve owned this perfume before and enjoyed it. The combination of mint, jasmine, lemon, and brown sugar really make for an alluring scent—it isn’t too strong or cloying, but it doesn’t hide in the background either. This lasted throughout the day and I kept smelling my arm where I applied it.

Sephora Favorites Perfume Travel Sampler April 2019 - Marc Jacobs Daisy Love Eau de Toilette Front

Marc Jacobs Daisy Love Eau de Toilette, 0.04 oz – Estimated Value $3.27 (Certificate redeems for 0.33 oz Travel Spray that costs $27)

Marc Jacobs Daisy has always been a fragrance I liked but never loved, but Daisy Love is a different story! This has scent notes of “crystalized cloudberries, daisy tree petals, cashmere musks, and driftwood.” I am not sure what crystalized cloudberries are, but the warmth of the driftwood and cashmere really elevates this floral fragrance to be right in my element. It lasted all day on me, and this is one of my favorite scents in the box.

Sephora Favorites Perfume Travel Sampler April 2019 - Tocca Stella Eau de Parfum Front

Tocca Stella Eau de Parfum, 0.04 oz – Estimated Value $3.27 (Certificate redeems for 0.33 oz Rollerball that costs $27)

I love Tocca and I usually adore their perfumes, but this one was a bust. While the scent itself is nice with notes of blood orange, white freesia, and sandalwood, this perfume just did not last long on my body at all. Within a few hours, the scent was gone, and I tried it out on two separate occasions. Bummer!

Sephora Favorites Perfume Travel Sampler April 2019 - Tory Burch Nuit Azur Eau de Parfum Front

Tory Burch Nuit Azur Eau de Parfum, 0.05 oz – Estimated Value $7.50 (Certificate redeems for 0.20 oz Rollerball that costs $30)

I love Tory Burch, and while this perfume smells great with notes of violet leaf, salty fig, freesia, and cedarwood, it isn’t the perfume for me. It didn’t smell bad on me, and I thought it had a good wear time, but it didn’t make me go “wow.” Perfumes are such a personal choice for everyone, and for me, I just want to be wowed by the perfumes I use.

Sephora Favorites Perfume Travel Sampler April 2019 - Victor & Rolf Flowerbomb Nectar Eau de Parfum Front

Victor & Rolf Flowerbomb Nectar Eau de Parfum, 0.04 oz – Estimated Value $5.12
(Certificate redeems for 0.25 oz Travel Spray that costs $32 )

So, the website says that this redeems for a rollerball- but Sephora doesn’t sell a rollerball in this fragrance, so my assumption is that you actually will get a travel spray (plus the item number on the scent certificate matches the item number for the travel spray). That makes a big difference to me because I found the scent of orange blossom, bergamot oil, and “living gunpowder” to be absolutely intoxicating. The scent lasted on me all day, and if I really do get to redeem for the travel spray this is probably my top pick in the box.

The Verdict: I have been wanting to branch out from my typical go-to perfume (Nest black tulip, a forever love), and I thought this floral scented kit was perfect for doing that. I like the variety of brands that were included, and most of the scents were brand new to me. There were multiple winners in this kit, but my top two were Flowerbomb Nectar and Daisy Love. If you like floral perfumes, I definitely recommend picking this set up (especially with the VIP sale going on until May 6!).

Value Breakdown: This kit costs $25 + $5.95 shipping, bringing the total to $30.95. I received $25.71 worth of perfume samples plus a voucher to redeem for my choice of rollerball that ranges in price from $24-$32.

I am a staunch believer that pineapple doesn’t belong on pizza and when I’m not working as a family law attorney I enjoy hiking the Louisiana trails (alligator sightings are a favorite!) or relaxing with Duchess, my cat. I’m a sucker for anything labeled a mystery box and I’ve never met a bath bomb I didn’t like.

  1. This kit has 3 perfumes I love but am debating on purchasing full sizes of, so im definitely going to pick it up!

  2. Jessica you should check out Flowerbomb Midnight too. I just discovered it and it smells divine! I’ve always loved the original Flowerbomb and it’s one of the few perfumes that actually last a while on me. I’m glad to hear the Nectar version lasts as well. I’m dying to try it. I’m also a big fan of Nest fragrances, Black Tulip especially. It’s another one that has good staying power. Thanks for the review!

  3. It’s too bad they exclude the JC Penney stores. That makes it a no for me.

      However, I did see an add in JCPenney for these that I think inclugndes a redemption for Sephora in JCP. I was walking by fast and only glanced at the sign but will check it out more when I got back in store.
