The Fragrance Shop // Discovery Club

Just before Christmas I was offered the chance to receive and review The Fragrance Shop's perfume subscription box, something a little different from your standard subscription services right? The Discovery Club has actually been around for two years, with four boxes throughout the year containing perfume samples for both male and females. Alongside the samples you'll find a booklet, this booklet has all the info you need to know about the fragrance samples and money off vouchers which you can use both in-store and online.

I received the last box of the year (2014) which was the celebration of The Discovery Club's second birthday. To celebrate their second birthday The Fragrance Shop have included a miniature bottle of Modern Muse, a perfume I've been dying to try and it's by far my favourite of the entire box. Other fragrances include Jimmy Choo EDP, one that is already in the collection from picking up in the 2013 sales. Lady Million has been a scent I've wanted in my collection for quite some time though having now tried the sample I'm very disappointed in the staying power and how it sits on my skin. Nina by Nina Ricci is one I associate with airports, the Snow White apples are always on display right? Having tested this a long time ago I'm now quite the fan of the enchanting floral and toffee EDT. I very nearly treated myself to Angel by Thierry Mugler just before Christmas, now that I've had the sample it doesn't quite cut it as well as Womanity. Lacoste Touch of Pink appears in the birthday box, I've never been fond of this fragrance it smells of pure alcohol if you ask me. My Grandma adores Jean Paul Gaultier fragrances & rightly so, Classique features, smells divine & came packaged in lace etched packaging. Our last female fragrance comes from Givenchy, the floral aromatic Very Irresistible EDT has an incredible staying power and the fresh, edgy Rose Blossom fragrance has made it onto my Mums wish list.

As you can tell the boxes are mostly aimed at females, though there are three male samples, perfect for finding a new scent for your partner or family member. My Discovery Box arrived whilst only myself & Dad was in, he's always interested in my mail and was actually intrigued by the male scents. Sadly none of them have wowed him enough to replace his signature scent. I feel like all the fragrances featured would suit my brother the best. If he had to pick a favourite it would be Paco Rabanne Invictus, I also really liked this one. Following closely behind is Issey Miyake L'eau D'issey Pour Homme while Hugo Boss' offering came last.

I loved receiving the Discovery Club box, I think it's a great way to sample fragrances without spending a large amount of money. Just £5 per box, four times a year and the ability to cancel at any time. If like me you live in a small town that lacks the latest launches at the best of times it's great to have previews and vouchers to use online. All the samples and miniature Estee Lauder perfumers will be making their way into my makeup bags. Happy Birthday Discovery Club! Lucy xx

  2. That's so weird I've just done a perfume review of the Fragrance Shop this week too! I've not done the Discovery Club though, but this looks great! I love getting perfume samples, they're great for taking on nights out with you in your hand bag.

    Lady Million is one of my favourites! So gorgeous!
