VERDICT: The Most Scent-sational Sephora Buys Right Now!

As Christian Dior once said, “a woman’s perfume tells more about her than her handwriting.” Every woman wants to smell scent-sational, but finding your signature fragrance can sometimes take hours of sifting through testers. We rounded up the ladies in the office and took them down to Sephora to select their top perfume picks for the season. Here’s our verdict on our favourite female fragrances right now…
