Presenting the ultimate perfume gifts—with notes for their every nuance.
Finding your perfect fragrance is like finding your soul mate, so searching for someone else’s can feel like a heady black hole. Not only is it time-consuming, but it can also really stink, which is why we love fragrance samplers. Think of them like speed dating: they’re a fun, low-commitment way to select that very special scent (sans the awkward pick-up lines) and try out potential perfume personas. Try misting on a different bestseller before each rendezvous. With one spray, you can transform from the shy sweetheart on your first date to the sultry seductress on your second, and keep him guessing from there. Plus, once you pick your favorite, exchange the included voucher for a larger size of it. Here are three perfumed present possibilities for you and all your Valentines. RENEE TRILIVAS
