Scentful - A UK surprise perfume subscription box

As subscription boxes go, Scentful describe themselves as being a UK Surprise Perfume subscription box which is delivered monthly and is priced at just £10.95 and for that money you get two 5ml vials which give you enough perfume for a month.

The Scentful subscription box is available for him or for her and if you don't want to purchase one for youself, you can gift them to someone, which I think is a really nice touch.

I was kindly gifted a monthly subscription box which comes really well packaged in a box which fits through the letterbox.  Inside the box I found two fragrances to try for myself and they are Wonderlust by Michael Kors and Nero Assoluto Roberto Cavalli.

I started with Wonderlust by Michael Kors which is described as being a spicy creamy floral. It has top notes of almond milk which gives a really lovely opening and then it settles with the middle note of heliotrope before the base notes of benzoin and cinnamon leave behind a lovely waft of warm and spicy sweetness and it once the skin it is really long-lasting.

The second fragrance Nero Assoluto by Roberto Cavalli was a first for me as it isn't a brand I am too familiar with when it comes to fragrances. Described as being part of the Oriental-woody family and it is definitely one of those noticeable scents that is warm and powdery but as it settles it becomes rather musky.  Nero Assoluto opens with top notes of orchid accord which then blends with the heart notes of dark vanilla before the base note of ebony wood take charge and settle the notes down.

I had never tried either of these fragrances before the Scentful box arrived, so what I loved was the chance to try both of them out at home, in familiar settings, rather than in a store where the fragrance becomes mixed with other scents and doesn't really give you a true sense of how it will smell on your own skin.  

Scentful for me as a subscription service is a great idea.  I like that there is no telling what scent might turn up, the vials are big enough that you get to try them out properly to make .your mind up about each one and I know that having tried both Wonderlust and Nero Assoluto that Wonderlust is the one which I prefer and the one which works better on my skin, whereas Nero Assoluto would work better for a friend of mine, so it therefore gives me a gifting idea too.

As mentioned, Scentful is a subscription service which gives you the choice to choose for her, him or to gift it to someone else.  It costs just £10.95 per month and you can sign up for 1,3 or 6 or 12 months as part of your subscription and you can find more information right here*.
