The Fragrance Shop Discovery Subscription Box 9 (*)
If you're a regulary reader of my blog then you would of spotted my post on The Fragrance Shop Discovery Club Subscription Box and no this is not a dupe post! Firstly as I've mentioned before, the subscription box is available in a 3 month, 6 month or 12 month plan ranging from £5 - £20. The box allows you to sample the latest and greatest fragrances with typically 5 pocket sized samples.
However to celebrate their 2nd Birthday The Fragrance Shop have made their 9th box a bumper box of 10 classic fragrances from their collection featuring samples for both men and women. But also as an extra special thank you, a surprise ‘miniature’ fragrance is included, plus there’s money off vouchers for each of the classic scents totalling £60 and an information booklet!
Estee Lauder – Modern Muse (miniature surprise bottle)
This fragrance is the perfect handbag miniature and such a beautiful bottle that is identical to the full size version! It is creative scent with contrasting notes of sparkling florals and warm woods. The fragrance oozes strength and feminine energy that stems from undertones of exotic mandarin, soft musk and honeysuckle nectar.
Very Irrisistable - Givency
An elegant and floral scent that is perfect for those who favour a more fresh and girly fragrance for day wear. It has undertones of peony and star anise that together create an uplifting energetic scent. It reminds me of those type of fragrances you wore as a teen but with a more womanly feel.
Angel - Thierry Mugler
One of my favourite scents is the Theirry Mugler Alien fragrance and Angel is actually a little similar with its sensual and seductive edge. Angel is a sweeter more fruity scent with softening tones of vanilla, cedar and white musk that create a more discreet and warm day time fragrance.
Lady Million – Paco Rabanne
Another of my favourite brand of fragrances! I’m a huge fan of the Paco Rabanne Black XS scent and Paco Rabanne Millionaire for Men which are both musky, rich and night time scents. However Lady Million is a more lighter scent with top notes of mango, mandarin and grapefruit which are softened with base notes of amber and sandal wood. This scent is a day to night time fragrance which gives off a glamorous, cocktail feel.
Nina – Nina Ricci
For me, this scent is a little too sweet. It is both floral and fruity with notes of lemon, lime and a toffee apple like fragrance. It is the perfect fragrance for those that love scents that awaken their senses and give off a type of energy that is softened with a sweet but smoother scent.
Original – Jimmy Choo
A very glamorous and grown up scent that expresses strength and luxury. The Original Jimmy Choo contains sensual exotic notes that are both sweet and subtle with hearty notes of creamy tiger orchid. A classic fragrance that feels like one of those you would of discovered from being passed down from your mother.
Touch of Pink – Lacoste
An energising teen like scent with playful notes of peach and blood orange, all set with a softening kiss of vanilla. Lacoste Touch of Pink is very much a day time scent with a spicy sharpness carried from the hearty notes of carrot and jasmine. The type of scent you would wear to awaken your senses and feel happy.
Classique – Jean Paul Gaultier
A captivating and sensual fragrance with supreme seductive powers carried with both sophistication and playfulness. Classique is a very feminine scent with oriental notes of rum and orchid based around warm undertones of vanilla and amber wood.
Boss Bottled – Hugo Boss
For me I prefer eau de toilettes for men to smell similar too my favourite scents that carry deep, seductive and sensual notes of warm woods and soothing vanilla. This fragrance although has base notes of both of these scents is a little too sweet with top notes of lemon and apple. Together it is a spicy day time scent with masculine energising tones.
Invictus – Paco Rabanne
This energising and fresh frangrance was created to reflect masculinity and power. With top notes of orange and grapefruit is it smoothed over with oakmoss and warm woody tones that carry an oriental feel from both jasmine and bayleaf. This scent is the perfect day time scent for those who want to feel energised and sporty.
L’Eau D’Issey Pour Homme – Issey Miyake
A fresh and vibrant scent with a very masculine signature stemming from base notes of sandalwood, amber and tobacco. This fragrance is very much a strong timeless scent with its classic spicy hints of saffron and cinnamon. It is one of those scents that has been passed down from dad but still obtains that fresh unique feel.
