Rated 4 out of 5Â by marisstella Great sampler set!
I am docking one star for price -- these are just like the perfume samples that places like Sephora give out for free, so the cost seems a bit steep to me (it's Tocca's price though, not Anthro's). That aside, these perfumes are just beautiful, and I have gotten a lot of use out of my little sampler! It is a very good way to try out the different perfumes over a few weeks, if you can't make a decision on a larger bottle (like me). This would make a great stocking stuffer for a collector, or someone whose tastes you know well.
I would describe all these scents as florals, so this is not for the lover of aseptic scents. Stella is a bit more fruity and Cleopatra has some musk. I find that Graciella, while very lovely, does not have a ton of staying power. The others lingered all day.
Perfume is so personal so I won't go into favorites, but I will say that these developed very nicely on my skin, and I enjoyed their classic, romantic scents. Lots of compliments from friends, coworkers, and the boyfriend! Unfortunately I still can't choose, but I may get another month out of these on my current rotation...
