In-store fragrance sample

I just went to my nearby Sephora store and they say that they will no longer make in-store fragrance samples anymore due to the company policy. Is this true?

Re: In-store fragrance sample

@Gulugulu123 A few people have reported this. I'm not sure when this will change but I think it makes sense to do it on a store by store basis since every area is in a different place with covid.

Re: In-store fragrance sample

@pocketvenus I'm curious if this is a measure due to COVID, or as a cost-saving measure...?

Re: In-store fragrance sample

@greeneyedgirl107 quite possible!! There might also be supply chain issues due to covid? For awhile my local Sephora didn't offer samples because they ran out of containers but this was pre-covid.

Re: In-store fragrance sample

@pocketvenus I didn't even think about this from the other end - that the trial sizes vials but be in short supply.  Leave it to you to have a good hypothesis for a fragrance mystery!  🙂

Re: In-store fragrance sample

@greeneyedgirl107 🙂 whatever the reason, I hope they change their policy!

Re: In-store fragrance sample

@pocketvenus I know!!!  When they first announced that they were doing three free samples in-store, I made a bee-line.  Of course, I haven't gotten any samples in years.

Re: In-store fragrance sample

In my place, they say they can do make-up and skincare samples only
