The Beauty Box for Fragrances Review - The Fragrance Shop Discovery Club



This week I discovered the Discovery Club. This is a sample box of fragrances picked and chosen by scent experts at The Fragrance Shop. I don't know about you but I often have trouble keeping up with the latest releases in makeup and skincare, and much more so with fragrances and this is a fantastic and super affordable opportunity to try out new scents.

Here are my running thoughts on the fragrances included in my box:



For Her --

This is a fresh floral scent, predominantly of roses with a small hint of citrus. It has moderate sillage.

I love this fragrance. It is a floral with some citrus scents thrown in, avoiding it from becoming too intense. It has a powdery feel to it and it smells a little sweet - but not too sweet. This is one of my favourites among the new releases.

Dolce & Gabbana Dolce Floral Drops
Fresh, floral and citrussy, but it smells like a generic floral perfume, nothing special.

Givenchy Very Irr├ęsistible Mes Envies
This is a very floral fragrance, predominantly rose and it is somewhat sweet. Unfortunately this is one of those scents I cannot tolerate as I find it too strong so I will have to give this away. 

Hugo Boss Hugo Woman
I am impressed by this fragrance. It is a warm cozy cuddly scent with the zing of citrus to liven it up for Spring. It is not too sweet. It smells very youthful and somehow I think all ages can wear it. The only thing I don't like about the sampler as it doesn't come with a pump however the fragrance is pure love!

When life gives you lemons, you make Versace Eros Pour Femme perfume. This is an interesting mix of woody, musky and citrus most especially because of its lemon heart.

For Him --

This is a gorgeous blast of yummy vanilla. Sweet woody and musky. I've given this to my other half and it just smells so good, and despite this being for men, I do spritz some on myself from time to time. What a gorgeous fragrance!
