Secret Scent review by Gemma- December 2019

I would first of all like to say a big thank you to Anil and the team at Secret Scent for sending this box to us to review.

For anyone who is not familiar with Secret Scent, they are a monthly fragrance subscription box that lets you discover new designer perfumes or aftershaves. They send a 30 day supply of 3 surprise fragrances- they only use 100% authentic designer and brand name fragrances.

If you missed me unboxing this on our facebook group, you can catch it here on YouTube:

As you can see from the picture, this box is letterbox friendly and comes in an outer box to protect the packaging inside. The box itself is very sleek, almost like a jewellery box! I think that is what I will use it for once I have used all the fragrances. And what is inside?

The first thing I took out was the month card, followed by a card where you can win a £25 Amazon gift card simply for leaving a review on TrustPilot or Facebook and then the 3 fragrance description cards to correspond with this month’s offerings. These cards give details about the fragrance and the inspiration behind it, as well as the top, middle and bottom notes. This way, if you like a particular fragrance, you can shop around for others with similar notes in them.

Obviously, scent is very subjective so the following is my opinion on them based on my personal tastes- yours may be completely different!

The first fragrance was Burberry Brit Sheer. This is described as a light and joyful fragrance and a great all round scent. It has top notes of Pineapple, Litchi and Mandarin Orange, middle notes of Peony, Yuzu, Peach Blossom and Sweet Pea and base notes of White Musk and White Woods. This is a very fruity fragrance, it is very tropical on the first spray, but it then dies down to be very sweet and musky. I really liked this.

The second fragrance was Agent Provocateur Fatale Pink. This is described as a seductive, enigmatic and glamorous fragrance that is perfect for the evening. It has top notes of Tangerine, Pear and Yuzu Whipped Cream, middle notes of Pink Lotus, Camellia and Datura and base notes of Musk, Bamboo and Saffron. Again, this is very fruity when first sprayed and dies down to a musky, almost masculine scent, which I actually really like. There is a floral hit too, which isn’t too overpowering.

The third fragrance was Marc Jacobs Daisy Love Eau So Sweet. This is a brand new scent that captures the addictive and irresistible spirit of Daisy Love with an unexpected sweet freshness. It has top notes of White Raspberry and Bergamot, middle notes of Daisy Tree Petals and Jasmin Milk and base notes of Sugar Musk and White Iris Woods. I absolutely love this; it is my favourite of the three. It just has a sweet muskiness that is unlike anything I have ever smelled before. It is not overpowering and lasts all day. I also love the look of the full size bottle too.

The Prices.

Secret Scent offer both women and men’s boxes and they also make the perfect gift. The prices are the same across the board and are as follows:

  • £15 Per Month
  • £84 for 6 months prepay
  • £156 for 12 months prepay

All of these options include Free Delivery within the UK.

But wait, there’s more! We have an amazing discount code- use BOXESSION50 to get your first box for just £7.50! Absolute bargain!

My Verdict.

I am a huge fan of this concept and love that you get to test out 3 designer perfumes at your leisure, rather than feeling under pressure at a fragrance counter, using the little cards and buying based on first impressions to then end up with a fragrance you don’t actually like because your sense of smell has dulled due to the amount you have just tested. This way, you get to try them risk free for 30 days each and judge how well they react to your natural pheromones and how the scent wears throughout the day. It is just a great idea, and the packaging makes it look so sleek and sophisticated too! All three of the scents were beautiful and I love the idea that I get to try them out in my everyday life and try perfumes I wouldn’t normally think to try out!
