I love fragrance discovery sets like Bon Parfumeur Perfume Sampler Set. Like many things, fragrance is personal and sets like these are a great way to see how a scent interacts with your own body chemistry. There's usually one or two scents from sampler sets that just don't work for me and I think that's to be expected. As such, it came as a surprise that I enjoyed all six from this set - with 3 (103, 402 & 801) being added to my holiday wish list - let's see if I can hold off until the holidays. Or if I can just pick one of those three to start with. 😂 For anyone interested, I posted a more detailed review on each fragrance here - Re: Fragrance Junkie Central - Beauty Insider Community (sephora.com); a slightly more brief summary is below, based on testing out the scents over the course of a week. Tagging @CookieGirl1 who asked about the different fragrances.All the scents in this set are soft and wear close to the skin. I thought this would translate to the scents wearing down and dissipating quickly, but I was wrong in that regard. I was able to pick up most of the scents (faint though they were) after 6-7 hours of wear, with one lasting just over 8 hours. 001 CITRUS - I picked up neroli at the opening, not overwhelming. The more citrusy notes come forward next, in a very subtle, unassuming way. It's a general citrus scent, not overly fruity, more fresh and clean, but thankfully, not in a Pledge or Pine Sol sort of way. The final dry down is pleasantly sweet and delicately floral. 103 FLORAL - This one is definitely floral in nature. The scent reminds me of a bouquet of Hawaiian white florals, but in a soft, elegantly understated sort of way. Another fragrance added to my holiday wish list. 203 FRUITY - Opens with a very raspberry undertone, with just a hint of spice and floral. From there, the sillage of subsequent scents I pick up, from the light powder floral scent to the slightly woodsy smell, are more muted, faint, low-key. 402 VANILLA - Soft, vanilla - not cloying nor artificial nor overly gourmand. This is a very soft, subtly sweet, almost airy vanilla and caramel scent. I was pleasantly surprised by this one; another favorite from the set. 501 GOURMAND - WIth the first spritz, I got ... nothing. A second spritz on my arm brought out a very light nutty scent, followed by an even lighter musky and powdery scent, which I think may be the patchouli in it. Each of the notes is actually very soft. 801 AQUATIC - While the initial sea salt scent is very pronounced, it is tempered by the more herbal and woodsy notes that follow, which help to give the fragrance both depth and freshness. The citrus that follows is beautiful, and reminds me of a very subtle version of Atelier Cologne Orange Sanguine, one of my favorite citrus scents.

I was intrigued by Bon Parfumeur when I first saw the brand appear on the Sephora site and picked up Bon Parfumeur Perfume Sampler Set the moment I caught sight of the notification that it was available. All the scents in this set are soft and wear close to the skin. I thought this would translate to the scents wearing down and dissipating quickly, but I was wrong in that regard. I was able to pick up most of the scents in this set after 6-7 hours of wear, with one lasting just over 8 hours. With a couple of the scents, there's a slight difference in the description contained on the box and the one on the product page on both Sephora and the brand's site. I enjoyed all six fragrances, with three of them - 103, 402 and 801 - being added to my fragrance wish list. As far as discovery sets go, this was well curated in my mind. A wonderful intro to the house. I'm definitely interested in delving deeper into Bon Parfumeur. 001 CITRUS* Notes: orange blossom, petitgrain, bergamot* Described as: A refreshing cologne (from product page: A sweet, floral cologne)* My Two Sense (Cents): I picked up neroli at the opening, not overwhelming, on the milder side. The more citrusy notes come forward next, in a very subtle, unassuming way. It's a general citrus scent, not overly fruity, more fresh and clean, but not in a Pledge or Pine Sol sort of way. The final dry down is pleasantly sweet and delicately floral. The notes on 001 are all lovely with each layer beautifully transitioning into the next. If I were to note an area or areas for improvement, there would be two - (1) amping up the intensity a smidge would be nice, and (2) having a more lingering scent. 103 FLORAL* Notes: tiare flower, jasmine, hibiscus* Described as: A sun-drenched flower* My Two Sense: Ahhhh. This is love.For me, every trip to Hawaii has included, at one point or another, being surrounded by a sea of distinctive white florals that is quintessentially Hawaii. It's a lovely scent, but I find it to be pretty strong and can oftentimes be a little overwhelming, intoxicating really, to the senses. After seeing the notes for this fragrance, I was a little concerned that 103 would be as well. That, fortunately, was not the case. In fact, quite the opposite is true. 103 is definitely floral in nature and the fragrance reminds me of a bouquet of white florals from Hawaii, but in a soft, elegantly understated sort of way. Another fragrance just got added to my holiday wish list. 203 FRUITY* Notes: raspberry, vanilla, blackberry* Described as: A red hot berry* My Two Sense: This one does not hold anything back on its opening, which to my nose, has a very raspberry undertone, with a hint of spice and floral. From there, the sillage of subsequent scents I pick up, from the light powder floral scent to the slightly woodsy smell, are more muted, faint, low-key. 402 VANILLANotes: vanilla, toffee, sandalwood* Described as: A caressing vanilla (from product page: An opulent vanilla)* My Two Sense: Soft, vanilla - not cloying nor artificial nor overly gourmand. This is a very soft, subtly sweet, almost airy vanilla and caramel scent. I was pleasantly surprised by this one; another favorite from the set. 501 GOURMAND* Notes: praline, licorice, patchouli* Described as: A delicious praline (from product page: An assertive praline)* My Two Sense: I got ... nothing. A second spritz on my arm brought out a very light nutty scent, followed by an even lighter musky and powdery scent, which I think may be the patchouli in it. I often associate patchouli with a stronger, more pronounced smell, that to me, can, at times, be very heavy; this is quite the opposite - each of the notes is actually very soft. This was the wildcard fragrance for me from the set. I typically love gourmand scents but the blend of notes in this one was unfamiliar to me. The combination turned out to be one I find unique and like, and I think that's attributable to the more intimate style of all the Bon Parfumeur's fragrances in this set. 801 AQUATIC* Notes: sea spray, cedar, grapefruit* Described as: A briny freshness * My Two Sense: The "briny" description made me brace myself before spritzing this aquatic fragrance on my wrist. I see or hear the word "briny" to describe a fragrance and I think it's going to smell pungently of sea salt or seaweed. Not so with 801. The initial sea salt scent is very pronounced but it feels like the more herbal and woodsy notes help to give it both depth and freshness. The citrus that follows is beautiful, and reminds me of a very subtle version of Atelier Cologne Orange Sanguine, one of my favorite citrus scents.
