Sephora, the ultimate beauty warehouse offers a plethora of choices when it comes to beauty products. This year I’ve been on a big fragrance kick and I decided to spin my VIB coupon wisely and purchase the Sephora Favorites Fragrance Sampler for her. The fragrance samplers comes with 12 sample size fragrances a small clutch and a voucher to return to the store for the full size fragrance of your choice from within the kit. Some of the fragrances in the sampler were newer (Marc Jacob Dot) while others had been around for years (DKNY BE Delicious). A lot of my twitter friends and I went back on forth about whether or not this was a good purchase. The set itself cost $50 but with my coupon I was able to get 20% off bringing the set down to $40. The next big question was what is the actual size of the “full size fragrance”. After doing some research and actually calling the VIB hotline I came up with nothing, until one day while surfing Sephora’s site I noticed that it finally listed the actual size you would receive once you turned in your voucher. All the fragrances redeem to 1 oz bottle except for Betsey Johnson, which redeems to a 2.5 oz bottle. Now there has been conflicting reports that for many of these fragrances the 1.0 oz bottle is not available in stores so you get the next size up. However, all employees state you do not get the 3.4 oz bottle!
Instead of you having to search I decided to provide you all with prices of the smallest and medium size bottles of each fragrance so you can decided if you’re getting a great deal or not.
