The Fragrance Shop Discovery Club.

4 January 2017

Anyone who knows me, knows I'm an absolute fragrance fanatic. My signature perfume has been Insolence by Guerlain since I was about 13. Even though I absolutely love this perfume, there are some days when I want to smell of something different. And Thanks to the lovely people at Rumpus PR and The Fragrance Shop, I could do just that.

Towards the end of last year, I was sent a Discovery Club box. For those of you who don't know about The Discovery Club.For £5 a quarter, The Fragrance Club sends a Discovery Club box straight to your door filled to the brim with the latest samples for you to try out. Not to mention, you also receive exclusive offers and savings to be used at The Fragrance Shop.

I received the Discovery Club:Classics 2016 edition that contained 10 amazing fragrances. I wore a different perfume for 10 days straight so I have my favourites and my 'not so' favourites.

The set included; Paco Rabannes Lady Million PrivĂ©, Gucci Guilty which I already own and absolutely love, the second Paco Rabanne fragrance and this time it was 1 Million PrivĂ©, a male fragrance was thrown in there in the form of Boss Bottled by Hugo Boss, Dylan Blue by Versace and the simple yet effective Eau De Lacoste L.12.12 Blanc.

These 4 happened to be my favourites and they also happened to have all pink packaging (coincidences ey).

Ranking first at £40.50 was the Eau de Parfum Jimmy Choo original fragrance, inspired by modern women - strong, empowered, beautiful, seductive and alluring with a hidden and mysterious sense of confident sexuality. With two sprays of this, I was feeling just that. It was surprisingly refreshing and smelt like I had laid in a bed of flowers(despite my hay fever). This was defo my favourite perfume. It was so versatile and perfect for day and night wear.

Next was the Agent Provocateur Pure Aphrodlisiaque fragrance. Having worked in a lingerie department selling Agent Provocateur and wanting one of their bras for ages, I was itching to try this fragrance. When bought individually, it is £41.50 for a 40ml Eau de Parfum on The Fragrance Shop. As their underwear is incredibly sexy, I expected the perfume to be equally sexy. The blend of Mandarin, Anjou Pear and rich Rum combined with the sweet Jasmine Petals, Wild Orchid and Indian Sambac makes it so mysterious.

The Gucci Bamboo was one of the biggest selling perfumes of 2015, receiving praise from celebrities and bloggers alike. When purchasing from The Fragrance Shop, Gucci Bamboo is £54.50 for a 50ml Eau de Toilette. This is quite pricey if you're not 100% sure whether you'll like it or not. And that's why the Discovery Box is perfect. The scent is lovely and strong which means that you only need a couple of sprays to keep you going the whole day. When reading reviews it said it smelt woody with a hint of vanilla. I can slightly understood that but the perfume was not too sweet and I received a load of compliments from people when wearing it.

And finally in my favourite four was Classique by Jean Paul Gaultier. The Eau De Toilette 50ml Spray costs £50.50. Made of rose together with rum essence -it's sweet, spicy, deep, warm and powdery and a fragrance you wear when you get all dolled up to go on a night out. It's sillage and longevity was the best out of a good bunch.

Receiving a selection of fabulous fragrances was perfect for me as someone who is looking to get that perfect alternative scent (I still love you Insolence by Guerlain) but is not too sure on which scent to go for. It can also be great if you have that annoying picky relative you need to get a present for. If you're not too sure what to get them, the Discovery Club is the perfect gift.  The Discovery Club: Spring Edition is out soon. So if you're looking for that perfect gift, or want to treat yourself (because, why not??) indulge in the best scents put together by a bunch of experts.
