Firstly I would like to say a huge thank you to Anil from Secret Scent Box for sending BoXession these boxes to review.
I was so excited when I found out I would get to review this again! And my postie was glad he didn’t have to knock on my door to deliver it (in his words “he sees me more than his misses” hahaha)
If you have never heard of Secret Scent, they send you 3 perfume samples to try each month. It’s a brilliant concept and has opened up my one fragrance world dramatically!
So I could not wait to find a new scent and if you missed me trying them out you can catch it here:
In the February edition we had:
3 repackaged perfumes. Each 3ml vial should last 10 days based on 4 squirts a day, so it gives you a great chance to see what suits you and wears well (plus get a cheeky compliment or 2).
FCUK 3 for her
Top notes: Mandarin orange, pink pepper, red berries
Middle notes: Jasmine, gardenia, rose
Base notes: Amber, woody notes, vanilla
My favourite from the box, it reminded me of fun teenage summer days. I usually stick to higher end perfumes but I fell in love with this fun, outgoing, fruity scent and ended up purchasing the full size. For a budget perfume it smells amazing, packs a punch and is long wearing. This is my new Summers day scent.
Top notes: Rangoon creeper
Middle notes: Jasmine bud
Base notes: Natural tuberose
Not really a scent I’m into, a bit to floral for me but this scent lives up to its name! It literally smells like a fresh bouquet of flowers and some how they even managed to recreate the fresh-cut stem scent in it. Honestly you have to try it to believe it. It really is a lovely fragrance but one I personally prefer my house to smell of not me.
Davidoff Cool Water for Her
Top notes: Mint, watermelon, pineapple, blackcurrant
Middle notes: May rose, jasmine, muguet
Base notes: Iris, vetiver, peach, mulberry
A throw back from my teenage years, this scent is so fresh and invigorating, it always throws me to summer walks through the beach side woods. It will always have a place in my heart!
As I said previously, I love the concept of Secret Scent Box. I really was stuck in my ways with my Chanel NO5 and since I first received this box I now have 8 fragrances I love, including my recent purchase off the back of this box (FCUK3). So it really has opened a new world for me.
You get a 30 day supply based on 4 sprays a day, so a great way to try it without investing loads. I love the cute packaging they use. The boxes remind me of jewellery boxes and they come set in a velvet inlay. The fact that they are spray bottles is a huge advantage to me because I hate the little pull top vials you get in samples. And this box works! I have purchased fragrances I have tried in this box without the worry I’m throwing my money away on something I’m not sure on.
This would make a perfect gift for the young and old, male (as they also offer a men’s box) or female! Even couples as you can get his and hers boxes and it’s so much fun trying the different scents out together. I’ve done this and actually bought the man shape 2 of the fragrances that came in Secret Scent for Christmas!
