The Fragrance Shop Discovery Box | Third Edition

Good evening! :) Having a predominately beauty loving and female readership, I expect that most of you have some kind of interest in fragrances? I know that I find the array of perfumes, etc, that are currently on the market a little bit of an overwhelming selection and if I'm ever looking for a new scent then I have no idea where to start, and after getting a whiff of about 5 samples in a department store everything all starts to smell the same! If you're anything like me, here's a potential solution:

The Fragrance Shop are the only fragrance retailer that offer a subscription box to customers; their Discovery Box*. This here is their Third Edition of the Discovery Box and they have a new one released quarterly, for only £5.00 a box. So what's in this box for £5.00? This box contains 6 fragrance samples for you to try out in the comfort of your own home with most sizes being around 2ml. One of the things I love about these perfumes samples is that 4 out of the 6 in this box come with a spritzer dispenser so if you like one of the fragrances they are ideal to slip into your night out bag for a quick and discreet top up (instead of taking out a big, clumpy full size bottle that's at risk of smashing, or trying to balance and pour out the right amount with a non-spritzer sample). Just me that's easily pleased with a feature like that?

But of course, yes you can go to your local department store and if they're feeling generous you may be able to take away a little sample for free, but they don't always do this, and The Fragrance Shop hand picks 6 of the newest releases and sends them directly to you with an information booklet full of details on each fragrance, their origins and their key notes.

That's not the best part though - what's better is the booklet FULL of vouchers and discount codes for customers to use. In this Third Edition there are a whopping £60 worth of vouchers included in the box and you can get £10 off any size bottle of any of the samples included in the box. (The vouchers can also be redeemed online). So if you fall for one of the scents then you can use a voucher to more or less claim your money back, and more!

Pour Femme:
Thierry Mugler - Alien Aqua Chic
Mont Blanc - Legend Pour Femme
Loewe - Quizas, Quizas, Quizas Pasion
