The Fragrance Shop Discovery Box | 5th Edition

Bored of beauty subscription boxes? Well how about try something new and get yourself a fragrance subscription box. Exclusive to The Fragrance Shop, for just £5.00 a box and you can cancel at anytime, you can get your hands on a quarterly subscription service (every 3 months) and receive a great big bundle of perfume samples straight to your door.

In case you're interested, I have also reviewed the 3rd edition of this Discovery Box back in August 2013 (..I don't know what happened to the 4th!), and you can see that post here: The Fragrance Shop Discovery Box | Third Edition

When you open up the box the samples just keep coming and coming and coming! The Fragrance Shop have stepped it up a notch and have almost doubled their usual sample amount for this Fifth Edition. In a usual box there a 5 samples (although in my 3rd ed. there were 6),  and for this box there is a total of 9 samples! Yay! It pleases me that they're not obscure and unheard of brands making an appearance in here either, and I'm not even a fragrance expert but I've managed to be familiar with definitely all of the brands, and 6 out of 9 of the actual fragrances (I didn't know the men's ones, but can you blame me?).  

..Yes, it includes men's fragrances too, something that my boyfriend will happily take off my hands now I no longer need them for review purposes. But, if you don't have a boyfriend then I'm sure there will be a dad, brother, cousin, uncle, male best friend.. or some other kind of masculine presence in your life that will appreciate a gift of three fragrance samples. 

The three men's fragrances (below) are: Hugo Boss - Hugo Man, Hugo Boss - Boss Bottled, and Issey Miyake - L'Eau D'Issey Pour Homme.

The six women's fragrances in the box are:
Thierry Mugler - Angel, Thierry Mugler - Alien, Jean Paul Gaultier - "Classique", Gucci - Gucci Guilty, Givenchy - Very Irresistable, and Nina Ricci - Nina.

So yes, that does include Mr Mugler's two most loved fragrances - Alien and Angel - as well as an offering from Gucci, ooh la la - spoilt! I'm so easily pleased, but I love that some of them come inside a proper little box too. It's just a nice touch that stops them feeling like a cheap 'freebie'. I especially love the samples that have a proper spritzer spray which makes them so handy for 'on the go' and ideal for nights out (no one wants to take out a clumpy 100ml bottle in a clutch bag!), or handbags, make up bags, travel, etc. 

As an extra, The Fragrance Shop also includes a booklet full of £45 worth of vouchers redeemable against any of the samples in the box, valid until 28th February. There's nothing to say you have to keep the vouchers for yourself, or even buy a bottle for yourself. I have many people's birthdays coming up and Valentine's Day on the horizon too.. so I'm going to be letting other people test and try out these samples for potential gift ideas! (Apart from Alien, that's for me, and me only.)

  10. I love that perfume samples now usually come with a pump spritzer rather than just a little hole that you have to tip it out of onto your finger. I think you end up using the sample up much quicker but at least you can apply a decent amount and actually experience the perfume properly x
