Cologne and perfume are great to spruce yourself up for a special event or when you want to feel fancy, but it's tough to find that perfect scent, and it's expensive to try. Instead, try sample kits to test multiple scents without spending a fortune. They're available from more companies than you might think. Image from Lisa.
Good colognes and perfumes are pricey, so instead of dropping your hard earned money on an entire bottle of a scent you don't end up liking, a sample kit lets you try several scents for a lower price. If you have a favourite brand, check to see if they sell a sample kit. I checked to make sure several major brands offer sample kits, but you'll need to search specifically for them on a brand's site or ask in store. Each sample in the kit should give you enough to try for a few days to test. Once you've found a scent or two you like most, you can invest in an entire bottle knowing it works for you.
