The Fragrance Shop Discovery Club

Would you pay for £25 for a yearly service where you would receive a box full of fragrance samples three times a year, plus £5 off vouchers for all the fragrance samples included in the box? Yea, I'm on the fence too. But The Fragrance Shop has gone ahead and brought out a subscription for all your nosey noses out there called the Discovery Club. If you're a Fragrance addict, you'd love to come across these fragrances which may not have crossed your mind before.

Of course being human I am bound to complain 'but the sample sizes could have been bigger!'. Regardless, I feel it's decent value for money if you want to sniff a variety of concoctions. Plus even these teeny tiny vials last at least a week which I know is enough for me to decide if I want to make a purchase or not. A sniff or two at the counter has never really been enough for me to bite the bullet and get a full sized bottle.

Included in this quarters box are some already popular names such as Couture La La by Juicy Couture, Just Cavalli, Lacoste, Love Struck by Vera Wang and Nina Ricci. Including brands in the line of Narciso Rodriguez and Lolita Lempicka that are not found in every household further down the line would make Discover Club more interesting. 

From the fragrances included in this box however, Nica Ricci LEau won my heart straight away. It starts off so sweet yet fresh and has a creamy, sensual, musky dry down. It's not overpowering at all nor too sweet and sickly. It's got the right ingredients blended in perfectly. I am that close to getting a 30ml bottle for myself. 

Couture La La is not bad too but I have to say, it's so much more overrated than it should be. Well I think that about all things Juicy Couture to be honest but that's another story. It would however be my second favourite scent from the box as it's your typical girly girl, fresh, young, fruity scent. 

Overall, it's a genius idea by the fragrance shop especially as we were massively getting bored of beauty boxes. The vouchers are great, especially as there's five of them in every box which I feel is great to give most of us that push to get a new scent. I may be asking for more but including just one 5-10 ml miniature fragrance bottle in every box would make it just perfect fragrance shop!
