Fragrance Shop Discovery Club Summer 2015

My Fragrance Shop Discovery Club Summer 2015 box has just arrived and I am glad to see that the box is the thin oblong shaped box which fits through the letterbox rather nicely.  This box is packed full of 8 samples to try and test and for just £5 per quarter, I think it is a great value for money subscription box because it allows you try a huge array of fragrance samples at home, away from stores to give you a chance to decide whether or not you like them.

Inside the Summer 2015 Box the 8 samples are:

Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Salina - This is described as being a fresh floral scent that opens with fresh vine leaves and violet leaves. The heart includes yellow freesia, jasmine and orange blossom. The base notes are amber, cedar and white musk. Having used this for a few days now, I actually quite like the scent. It is definitely a summer scent and is so fresh that it lingers for hours before you need to re-apply it.

Givenchy Dahlia Divin is described as being like an Haute Couture gown, this fragrance of the light envelops you in freshness and sensual softness that reveal the divine within you. This scent I absolutely adore and is possibly my favourite of the box, the scent of Jasmine, one of which I am a huge fan is really prominent alongside white flowers and Mirabelle Plum.


Hugo Boss Boss Ma Vie Pour Femme woman is described as being her most captivating, exuding a glow of femininity and confidence. Fresh, indulgent and unique, experience the blend of cactus, floral notes and cedar for a feminine and elegant fragrance. This is a really lovely scent and again one which is perfectly summery and one I have really taken a shine too.

007 For Women is described as being a dark yet feminine ingredients convey an air of thrilling intimacy. An initial burst of spicy Black Pepper enveloped in Rose Milk ignites an intriguing paradox of danger and sensuality. This isn't a scent that I actually like, there is something about it that doesn't sit right with my senses, so it is a definite no from me.

I was delighted to see that within the box was also some samples for the Mister and for him we have:

Paco Rabanne 1 Million - A lighter variation of the original 1 Million Eau de Toilette is perfect for Summer, with an energetic and fresh scent.  Im on the fence with this scent, I neither love it nor hate it, I just think it is okay and isn't one that I would likely purchase.

Prada Luna Rossa Sport is said to evoke man’s deepest emotions the night before his defining challenge. Combining unexpected ingredients that express the heightened reality of the race. It was through this box that we both loved the original Prada Luna Rossa, so to find another alternative is brilliant and unsurprisingly it ticks all the right boxes and will I am sure be purchased at some stage.

Dolce & Gabbana Intenso - Intenso is described as being elegant and pure, the iconic signature of a contemporary man.It is a woody aromatic fragrance that opens with green accents of Basil and Lavender. It is a really nice scent though not too sure whether or not I can imagine the mister wanting it to be added to his selection.

Loewe Solo Loewe Cedro is described as being full of contrasts in which the energy of citrus fruits and aromatic herbs are combined with the sophistication, the strength and personality of a great composition based on wood. Im on the fence with this one, it is nice but that is about all I can say about it, nice.  It doesn't wow or make me want to ensure the mister has it, but ive smelt worse.

So there you have my Summer Box for 2015 and I have to say it isn't one of my favourite boxes to date but there are some lovely scents in there that I wouldn't have ordinarily chosen to try.


What do you think?

  1. I love the idea of this, so much easier to try at home and see if they really work for you before investing in a larger size.

  2. I got this box too :) And although I love the womans selection, I think there were a few too many men's options this time as my OH doesn't wear aftershave so they were sadly wasted on me.

  8. A great idea for a subscription box - I do like the idea of being able to sample different fragrances at your leisure - it can be overwhelming in department stores and perfume counters! x

  11. What a great and affordable way to try some new scents. I was looking at some at the weekend and I couldn't believe how expensive a full sized bottle is now. A costly mistake if you find out before trying properly.

  12. Loving your honest comments on each of the scents. Not smelled the 007 personally but even the packaging would put me off. Sounds like a great service. These subscription delivery boxes are going across all niches now aren't they? Liska @NewMumOnline x
