Fragrance Shop Discovery Club - Spring Edition 2014

Back in April I brought to my blog a new box from The Fragrance Shop Discovery Club which you can see HERE and again in June which is HERE and then September which is HEREthen the final box of 2013 HERE if you didn’t see it.  

For those of you not in the know this is the description:

"
If you love fragrance, then you'll love our Discovery Club.
Our exciting new club allows you to explore the very latest fragrance launches from the comfort of your own home. For just £5 per quarter, each edition comes with fragrance samples for you to try, details on each of the fragrances included, as well as discount vouchers so you can make some big savings on all the scents featured."


This quarter I have the Spring 2014 Edition which includes both male and female scents and this is what is in the box:

So in the box we have:

GUERLAIN - La Petite Robe Noire Couture.  It is described as "The third fragrance to join the hugely successful La Petite Robe Noire collection by Guerlain. The range is inspired by the little black dress, a must have for any fashionista wardrobe. La Petite Robe Noire Couture is a fruity floral vivacious scent fit for the red carpet, perfect for when a splash of luxury is needed!".  I am indifferent about the scent of this, it is nice, but I wouldn't purchase a full sized bottle, I am happy enough to use the sample.

Givenchy - Very Irr├ęsistible L'eau En Rose  Which is described as follows "It’s been 10 years since Givenchy launched the original Very Irresistible and to celebrate they welcome L’Eau en Rose to the Very Irresistible family. The fragrance pays homage to the rose in a simple and elegant mannerwith just 3 key ingredients".  This is my favourite scent from all of the female ones within the box, definitely something I would purchase, it smells divine and if you like rose scented products, you will probably like this.


Lacoste - Eau De Lacoste Sensuelle.  Again it comes with this description "Following the launch of Eau de Lacoste Parfum in 2013 comes Eau de Lacoste Sensuelle. The sweetness of the original daytime fragrance is replaced with a gourmand nougatine which offers a more sensual scent, perfect for taking on the night".  Sadly I don't like this scent, it is too strong for me.

Thierry Mugler - Alien Eau Extraordinaire.  Those of you who have read my blog regularly will know that I am not a fan of Thierry Mugler perfumes, I find them too sweet and sickly for my tastes.  This one is described as "A new chapter in the Alien story sees Alien Eau Extraordinaire join the family. Created as a positive, uplifting fragrance with delicate floral notes designed to energise, and a bottle designed as a brilliant crystal gemstone".  Again, not a fan, the scent reminds me too much of of Alien and Angel which I am not a fan of.

Elie Saab - L'eau Couture.  This is the only sample which comes in a cute little box and offers the following description "From the house of Elie Saab comes a new deliciously addictive, soft, almondy floral fragrance. Created to offer a taste of summer, the scent kicks off with a citrusy top that sparkles with zest which leads into a couture-inspired heart topped off with an addictive base".  This scent I also really like, it is a light scent which is perfect for spring and can be worn either during the day or at night for me.

Then we have the two male scents, I leave the description of male aftershaves to my hubby, Beautykinguk, who is better placed and well versed in giving his views on aftershaves, after all he owns enough of them.  However, these are the two scents and their descriptions:

Loewe - Solo Loewe Sport.  Which is described as follows - "Following on from the Loewe Solo launch in 2004 is the new Loewe Solo Sport. The fragrance retains the distinctive bottle design and signature notes of Loewe Solo, but has added zest and energy designed to encapsulate the spirit of sports. The advertising visual features Spanish archery champion Arturo Gracia whose suave looks are emphasised in a vintage Loewe sports kit".

Valentino - Uomo.  This is described as follows: "An aromatic, smooth and leathery fragrance designed to stand the test of time as a modern classic. The scent has heaps of Italian style with the notes composed to reflect an aristocratic Italian family lunch. The advertising campaign is set in Rome and features French actor Louis Garrel, whose striking looks match the equally striking glass studded bottle".

Once again, I am really pleased with this box and I love the fact I have new samples to test and try out without having to go into a shop and cover myself in perfumes to see if they smell okay on my skin, yes I am that lazy.  

Within the accompanying magazine which tells you about all of the fragrances is also an offer of £5 off each fragrance if you purchase them online.

If you think this is something you would like to sign up to, you can find the link HERE along with further information.

So what do you think to my box? Are you a subscriber?

  6. I love Alien, its my signature scent! The ltd edition summer ones are my fave though and they are a little lighter than the regular fragrance. I quite like the idea of the box because its nice to wear things a couple of times to make up your mind about them :) x
