Secret Scent Box : February 2016

It’s safe to say that in my quest to find the ‘perfect’ perfume I have amassed a huge array of bottles. Some I love and use regularly but others (usually an impulse buy) sit unused for months.  Would I have bought them if I could have had a months supply instead to really test them out? Well, probably not. Secret Scent Box I feel have identified this need and for £15.00 per month you can subscribe and receive three new scents to sample and the beauty is each will last a month to really get a feel if it is right to go ahead and buy the full sized perfume. You can either subscribe to a female or male trio of scents to be delivered each month and unlike so many beauty boxes this is letterbox friendly and will fit through easily – so no waiting in for parcels!

The unique idea for a fragrance subscription box with three generous samples is quite inspired and it will be a beauty box that will grow from strength to strength I’m sure – one to watch. February’s edition brings together three high end favourite names, Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger and Tom Ford, each of these brands feature on my dressing table so it was such a pleasure to try some new fragrances from some of my favourite brands. I must stress that all the scents from Secret Scent Box are authentic and not dupes of the originals, they do look different of course as they don’t have the recognisable branding but instead they have the Secret Scent Box labelling. The trio come boxed and well protected in a Secret Scent Box with detailed information on each fragrance, what a great gift idea they would make (Mother’s Day!) and as you can get a male version too it’s a lovely gift for birthday’s, Christmas or just because!

Tommy Hilfiger – Tommy Girl :

  • Top Notes: Camellia Flower, Apple Blossom, Mandarin.

Tom Ford – Orchid Soleil :

After sampling the February box I have to say I’m impressed, as it’s the perfect solution to finding the right fragrance with a monthly taster of three carefully selected mini scents. Even better than treating yourself to a subscription (*almost!*) would be to gift it to a friend, or family member as it would be such a special gift to have three new fragrances to try every month and it’s a gift to really enjoy over the months. What I love about this subscription is that you can delve into a selection of designer and branded fragrances and take the time to test them at home (each mini scent lasts approx 30 days) and then if you love them you can go ahead and buy the full sized version. I’m really looking forward to seeing what three selections the Secret Scent Box put together next as I loved all three that came in this box, especially the Tom Ford Orchid Soleil which is just gorgeous, I knew I would fall for it as I adore fragrances with a Vanilla base.
