The Perfume Beauty Box // Fragrance Shop Discovery Club




As a huge lover of fragrance, the Fragrance Shop discovery club caught my attention pretty quickly. The idea is based around that of a beauty box, but it actually just contains sample vials of perfumes. The box is £5 and includes £5-10 vouchers for each individual perfume, so if you find one you like the box is essentially a freebie (and an awesome marketing tool). What I like about this is that you can just buy one as a one off if you prefer to do so, though there is an option to sign up to two or four boxes a year, as you wish.

I remember trawling through Debenhams asking for free samples of loads of perfumes as a teenager, so I admit I feel strange about the idea of paying for these. Saying that, £5 is definitely reasonable if you're on the market for a new perfume and have no idea where to start, or you just like a little perfume for travelling or to keep in your handbag. I'm pretty sure I've found a winning perfume from my Autumn Winter 2014 box, so its definitely worth a shot. I do, however, wish the discount included inside was more than the £5 paid for the box - That'd be a real incentive though perhaps a little unrealistic! 

The box offers a true range of scents, and if you're into that that, you'll love this! In future though, I'd love to see categories, as I'm a lover of fruity, floral and oriental scents and would prefer a bunch of those. For example the two Loewe perfumes were quickly given away to my mum as I hated them, the Jimmy Choo to my dad as I'm er, not a man, and I kept the other two. In fact, I'm fallen head over heels in love with the Kenzo offering, and I'm hunting it down right after I finish this post (Potential wedding day perfume hello)!


Have you tried this?
Would you give the discovery club a go?

  1. I haven't tried this box but it looks great..
    In my country shops like sephora doesn't give us samples unless you buy a lot of things!! So this box is a great choice!!

  4. I like the idea of it, but I have enough fragrance testers that I don't need to pay for them...
