We all have our signature scents (mine’s Tobacco Vanille by Tom Ford), and if you’re anything like me, you’ll no doubt have a cupboard, cabinet or shelf dedicated to your favourite fragrances. Mine is filled with gorgeous dark patchouli scents from the Tom Ford Private Blends collection, Estee Lauder’s Youth Dew, Miss Dior and a selection of oud and tobacco based scents. Anything that’s dark, heady and long lasting is where I’m happy. But every so often I like to step out of that comfort zone and try something new, something I might not have considered before and the best way to do that? With a Discovery Box from The Fragrance Shop.
You may have read the post I wrote on switching up your scent for Summer and how fragrance wears differently when you’re on vacation and skin is constantly hotter than usual, (you can read that here), but where do you start when you just fancy trying something different? Well that’s where Discovery club from The Fragrance Shop comes in handy. Basically, for just £5 per quarter, you get a cute little box containing sample sized vials of the latest fragrance launches for each season. You’re free to cancel at any time, there’s no minimum subscription and delivery is free – it’s a great way to try out the latest fragrances from popular brands without the commitment or expense of buying a 30 or 50ml bottle.
Inside the box you’ll find new fragrances from celebrity, high street and designer fragrances allowing you to discover perfumes and aftershaves you might never have come across before. It’s great for gift inspiration too as each box contains a good selection of both men’s and women’s fragrances. Personally I just like that you never know what you’re going to get as each box is a surprise.
Inside the box, along with the fragrances themselves, you get a book that gives you more information on each one, their full price, and a £5 off coupon of each one incase you’re tempted to treat yourself to the full sized product. Incidentally, if you use the voucher and claim £5 off just one bottle per quarter, it makes the Discovery Box technically free; if you’re a savvy shopper and you’re shopping for fragrance and know that you intend to buy, you can plan ahead and save money.
The Summer 2017 has just landed and inside are some familiar fragrances, and some I’d never have tried, and one of the best things about getting small sizes like these is that they’re great for travelling with – perfect for vacation season.
