Thank you to Anil the founder of Secret Scent box for sending us these lovely little boxes to review.

Gucci Bloom – I generally like Gucci as a brand and have owned many of their perfumes but unfortunately this was not for me. Although the description is accurate in describing it like a floral garden scent I find the scent heavy, overpowering and cloying. After spraying it did set off a headache so I think I will be gifting this bottle to my mum as it’s definitely something she is more likely to wear.
Davidoff Cool Water Woman – Having never tried this before I was extremely curious to know how this smelt. It is a well-rounded almost masculine but still feminine fragrance. It has a very cool aquatic scent with florally undertones which makes it a beautiful, light perfume that is also unexpectedly long lasting!
FCUK3 for her – I was actually very surprised by how much I liked this perfume and for some reason it reminded me of my younger, teenage years. A playful and girly fragrance with a mix of floral and fruity tones. Definitely a youthful perfume to wear during summer. Although it has a lovely sweet smell that makes me feel warm and happy, I found that it didn’t last very long 🙁
This subscription box is a fantastic concept as perfumes can be quite costly, and I see this as a good way to ‘try before you buy’. Imagine walking into a well-known department store and spending several pounds on a perfume or aftershave to find that you don’t actually like it as much as you first thought! With this subscription you can sample THREE different fragrances each month – which allows you enough time to experience each perfume and decide if you want to purchase full sizes in the future. Secret Scent Box is one of the few boxes that caters to both men and woman, so makes a lovely gift for friends and family to experience. If like me, you love trying new perfumes then this subscription may just be for you!
