When a pal recently inspired us to waft away from our signature scent, we headed straight to the beauty counter, hoping to find a fresh new fragrance. Au contraire, we found ourselves bombarded by stuffy sales associates, celebrity perfumes (God help Justin Bieber) and ultimately left empty-handed and a little light-headed.
Back to Chanel No. 5. That is, until we discovered Bergamot.
In an effort to take perfume shopping away from the stale department store and into your own bathroom, Bergamot sends subscribers three two-milliliter fragrance samples each month (curated from niche boutique perfumers around the globe) that you can sample for a few days at a time to determine whether or not they suit you.
We recently got our hands on Bergamot?s September box, which embodies the romantic feelings of summer?s end and features fun quips like ?Wear this fragrance on a first date? and ?Perfect for an outdoor concert.?
Choose a subscription of one, three or six months ($18, $16 or $14 per month, respectively).Should you fall in love with one of the scents--we?re head over heels for the Jasmin Et Cigarette (a.k.a. French sex appeal)--you can order a full-sized bottle and as a bonus, your next box of testers is free.
Smells good to us.
