Fragrance | The Fragrance Shop 'Discovery Box'



I always tend to test perfumes out before I buy them. I mean, imagine spending £40 on a bottle of fragrance and after a few wears you figure you don't even like it that much? The Fragrance Shop have made up a little 'Discovery Box'* to help combat that. These little boxes are filled with six mini vials of different fragrances to not only test out, but to help you discover new scents. Not to mention they're only £5 per quarter!

This particular box comes with 6 samples, which include four female fragrances and two male aftershaves. I love the fact it includes a bit of both as us girls could find potential birthday and christmas presents for our other halves (or dads!). I have to say after giving them a whiff, my favourite is definitely Alien: Aqua Chic, it's absolutely gorgeous! As for the boys, both my Dad and brother preferred the Lacoste scent over the Givenchy; interesting!

Samples included: Mont Blanc's 'Legend'Alien's 'Aqua Chic'Loewe's 'Quizas, Quizas, Quizas, Pasion'Elvis Jesus' 'For Her'Givenchy's 'Gentlemen Only'Lacoste's 'Noir'

Overall, this is such a brilliant box if your a fragrance freak or if you're looking for a new scent! Make sure you check out the Fragrance Shop as they always have brilliant offers! Would this be something you'd try yourself? What's your statement scent? Let me know! Don't forget to vote in the Cosmo Blog Awards - I'm in the 'Best New Beauty Blog' category - only 6 days left to vote!

  3. Wow, this is really cool! :D I always tend to buy a perfume and only use half of it because I get bored of the scent, so this would be awesome to discover new scents and to not get bored of them :D

  6. I think this a great box for testing fragrances and promoting 'try before you buy' - and I'm like you lovely, I always try before I invest in a fragrance because they are on the pricey side!

  16. I love the idea of this box! I'm always second guessing myself when it comes to perfume so being able to "trial" a perfume before I spend lots of money on it? Awesome idea! haha Lovely post :)
