So the lovely people over at Secret Scent Box got in contact with me a little while ago, offering to send me their October box, I’m under no obligation to review it, however, I think this subscription service is a wonderful idea so I wanted to let you guys know about it (I know the rules have changed recently so I have no idea whether I’m meant to post this as an ad or not but I hope that clears everything up!).
So in a nutshell, Secret Scent Box is a monthly subscription box that allows you to discover a new designer perfume or aftershave. They tailor to both men and women and you get posted a new set of fragrance each month. There’s no commitment, no contracts, you get free delivery & you can cancel at any time.
I like the fact that you get a 30 day supply, this might not seem like it from the little bottles but they’ve worked this out to be about 4 sprays a day. All the fragrances they use are 100% authentic and are from brands that you’re bound to recognise.
With each box, you also get cards which tell you about the fragrances included, a really handy idea as this makes it easy to remember which perfume you liked the most, also making it easy for you to purchase it at a later date (or to drop hints to someone to buy it for you!).
The three scents that I received are:
BURBERRY – LONDON
“This fragrance is indispensable while visiting the city of London if one wants to feel the pulse of this old and contemporary city.”
Top notes: Rose, Honeysuckle, Tangerine
Middle notes: Tiare Flower, Jasmine, soft Peony
Base Notes: Wood, Musk
JIMMY CHOO – FEVER
“Launched 2018, this scent celebrates a new facet of the Jimmy Choo woman, an innate extrovert with a playful energy and sense of fun.“
Top notes: Black Plum Nectar, Lychee, Grapefruit
Middle notes: Heliotrope, Vanilla Orchid, Jasmine
Base notes: Tonka Bean, Benzoin, Sandalwood
FCUK – CONNECT HER
“A great, on-trend fragrance for young women, FCUK Connect Her Eau de Toilette is a floral perfume which is perfect for every day wear.”
Top notes: Lotus, Bergamot, Lily-of-the-Valley
Middle notes: Jasmine, Violet, Peony
Base notes: Sandalwood, Virginia Cedar, Amber
I’m pleasantly surprised that I actually like all three scents that I received as normally I can be quite fussy with fragrance, they have to smell like “me” if that makes sense. The ones that I am drawn to the most are the Burberry “London” scent and also Fever by Jimmy Choo, I think the former being my personal favourite. I love how this subscription box allows you to try out the scents first. You can often buy a perfume and then realise that it doesn’t suit you and for this
With Christmas coming up (don’t kill me for mentioning the C word in October!), I think this could make such a lovely gift for those people that are perhaps slightly harder to buy for, someone into their fragrance or even someone who doesn’t live near you who deserves a treat.
I recommend checking out this company if you haven’t already! What do you think of this subscription box? Would it be something you’d like to receive in the post?
