The Perfume Society has launched its Love Scents Discovery Box this month, just in time for Valentine’s Day. The box is filled with yes, you guessed it – lovely, feminine and romantic fragrances that are perfect for this month of all things love.
I think that this is one of the best Perfume Society boxes to date – probably because I have a thing for rose scents at the moment – soft and floral is exactly what I am looking for and this box doesn’t disappoint on that front. It even comes with a little packet of Love Hearts and a L’Occitane Roses et Reines mini hand cream which blends roses from Bulgaria, Grasse, Turkey and Morocco. Gorgeous.
Perfume Society Discovery boxes are perfect for discovering new fragrances and allows you to test mini samples to discover which scent is perfect for you. The box also comes with guided ‘Smelling Notes’ – each fragrance has a corresponding notecard which explains all about the notes and the story behind the fragrance. If you are interested in fragrance or want to improve your sense of smell or know-how about perfumes and colognes, I would highly recommend these boxes. I like to them of them as a fragrance class in a box and one you can do at home in your own time.
I was intrigued by a fragrance in the box called Lady Vengeance by Juliette has a Gun – this is a brand from Paris and I was hooked by the quirky name and the spicy floral notes. This is definitely a floral with an edge and I would recommend it to those who usually steer away from florals simply for the fact they are too feminine. This one is sharp and crisp and won’t disappoint (I hope)!
My top three scents however have to be L’Eau de Toilette by Carven, Signorina Eleganza by Salvadore Ferragamo and I Love My Man by Dear Rose (one I had never heard of before and now glad I have!).
L’ Eau de Toilette by Carven (below) is light and floral and reminds me of spring. I can really smell the sweet pea and peony coming out of the top notes in this. Gorgeous and perfect for the carefree woman in love!
Next up is Signorina Eleganza by Savadore Ferragamo. This is very sweet, candy-like scent that I find very playful which comes from the top notes of pear and grapefruit. An absolutely gorgeous scent that truly makes me want to eat a bowl of fruit – and I mean that in the best possible way!
My final top three is I Love My Man by Dear Rose. I had never heard of this brand before and I am glad I have now! This is a spicy rose – sexy and floral at the same time. The spice comes from cinnamon – a scent that I am obsessed with and always have been. Sandalwood also adds to its spicy smoky fragrance – this is an absolute gem and perfect for Valentine’s Day because it combines sweet and sexy in one fragrance. Voilà!
