Scent isn't like all the other beauty products. Unlike a lipstick or a tube of mascara, a fragrance becomes part of your essence and identity. Whether you like it or not, scents evoke a certain time and place, and are inextricably linked to memory and emotion. Some of us change our scent depending on our mood, others only opt for perfume on a special occasion. Whatever your relationship with scent is, one thing is for sure: You'll want the right one, one that works for you, and these perfume gift sets are a smart way to try before you really buy. Ahead, our eight favorite sright now.

Sephora
Perfume Wardrobe Get in the Mood
Atelier Cologne sephora.com
$48.00

The idea with this eight-piece set is that each scent would fit a different mood, from peppy orange to heady vanilla, and earthy Neroli. And as anyone familiar with the brand knows, Atelier Cologne specializes in intoxicating scents that never feel too gendered.

Since this cult perfumerie came on the scene in 2006, cool girls coast to coast have been deeply smitten. But the scents aren't cheap and they aren't created equal, so investing in this sampler set can help you decide before splurging on your full-size favorite.

$107.00

Arancia di Capri is a mystical blend of zippy orange, warm vanilla, and evocative caramel. Here, you'll get a body lotion, eau de toilette, and shower gel in a box designed by artist Clym Evernden, who is kind of like the British Drawbertson.
