Fragrance Shop Discovery Club - Autumn Edition

The anticipated delivery of one of my favourite subscription boxes has ended because it has arrived! If you are a regular reader of BeautyqueenUK, then you will know how much I love The Fragrance Shop Discovery Club box

Fragrance Shop Discovery Club - Autumn Edition

This box arrives every quarter and costs just £5. Inside there will be samples of some of the latest fragrances to have launched. The reason I love it so much is because I absolutely love perfume, I am obsessed with it but one of my pet hates is testing them out in a department store because I never feel like a quick spritz is enough to make a decision as to whether or not that perfume is for you. It might smell good whilst you are wandering around, but you never really get a chance to let it settle on the skin and it is more often than not mixed with other scents. So for me, this box is a great idea.

The Autumn edition of the discovery club features six different scents. Three for us ladies and three for the misters, again a feature I like because then Steve can be involved and as an aftershave obsessive, he often ends up wanting something new. So in my box we have:

Fragrance Shop Discovery Club - Autumn Edition

Paco Rabanne Olympéa
Olympea is a unique olfactory adventure, at the crossroads between the sensuality of salty vanilla accord and the freshness of floral notes. A fresh oriental fragrance whose balance of the accords forms a genuine Paco Rabanne signature. Before I came across this perfume a few weeks ago, I hold my hands up and admit that I was not a fan of ANY Paco Rabanne scents. Olympea I loved from the very first sample I was sent and it is one I intend to purchase because I absolutely love it.

Loewe Aura Magnetica
Aura Loewe Magnética by Loewe is a Floral Woody Musk fragrance for women, with top notes of pink pepper, bergamot and mandarin orange, with a heart of rose oil and jasmine sambac; On a base notes are leather, Australian sandalwood, patchouli, siam benzoin, bourbon vanilla and musk. I didn't like this scent at first, soon as a sprayed it, I wrinkled my nose and thought no, this isn't for me. Then it settled on my skin and I liked it a lot more but then part way through the day, I decided I really did like it and it is one I would considering buying.

GIVENCHY Live Irresistible
It is a good day to start an irresistible life! Your mood: happy and irresistible. Your motto: you only live once.Your fragrance: Live Irrésistible, a flirtatious floral fruity spicy Eau de Parfum that awakens the senses, making every moment a happy one. Opening with top notes of Juicy Pineapple, the heart of Spicy Rose and then the beautiful accord of Amber. Now for me, I wanted to love this scent because I absolutely adore Givenchy Irresistible and again, it is on my list to buy, but this one there is something about it that I am not liking once it has settled on my skin.


The three male fragrance are:

Fragrance Shop Discovery Club - Autumn Edition

007 Fragrances - SEVEN.
Described as bein a premium installment in its collection of male scents inspired by the powerful elements within the James Bond world. Fresh citric notes blend with exotic spices and fuse with powerful Mahogany wood and rich Leather to deliver a fragrance that captivates . It has top notes ofTangerine, Bergamot and Crisp Apple with Cinnamon, Saffron and Nutmeg for the heart notes. The base notes are Musk, Leather and Mahogany. 

GIVENCHY - Gentlemen Only Casual Chic 
Said to be the fragrance of natural elegance. While remaining true to the original accords of Gentlemen Only, this new Eau de Toilette nevertheless asserts its own lively and refreshing personality. With the inclusion of Cardamom, Ginger and Juniper it is described as being a woody, spicy fresh fragrance.

Hugo Boss - Boss The Scent
Reawaken the senses with the seductive power of BOSS The Scent: HUGO BOSS introduces BOSS THE SCENT, its new seductive perfume for men. An irresistible fragrance, unforgettable like a savoured seduction. Using Exquisite notes of Ginger, exotic and exclusive Maninka and Virile Leather it is described as being powerful, rich and full-bodied
.
So I am impressed with this box. There is a nice mixture of fragrances and two I absolutely love from both the male and female choices. What do you think? Is it something you would think of subscribing too?

  1. These look really nice, I love new perfumes, I am currently hooked on Diamonds, but would love to try some new ones! I live in the country and don't often go to a big town so this is a great way to sample them!

  2. I love this! I always want to try new fragrances but it's expensive to invest in something when you may not like it. But love this is perfect for giving new perfumes a whirl without the high price tag.

  3. My husband couldn't get the aftershave samples out of the box fast enough. My favourite was the 007 in a blind smell test and his was the Givenchy. It's a great way of testing out fragrance prior to making a full bottle purchase.

  6. That is such a fab price if you love to try out new perfumes. I'm obsessed with bottles, I have about 50! x

  7. I love this idea. I completely agree that you can't get a good idea of the perfume just by a quick spritz in the shops. It's a really good way to try a few scents out properly.
    I don't like any Paco Rabanne scents either but I might have a sniff of Olympea.

  16. The concept of this subscription box is a great one, though it would be nice to get mini bottles instead. I suppose for the price you can't beat it. I smelled Olympia at Boots, and agree it's a great scent.
