Review | The Fragrance shop: Discovery Club summer 2014 edition


Discovery club summer 2014 edition* – £5 per quarter

I’ve often found myself browsing the perfume aisles and being pressured into buying something which I’ve only smelt once. I always think that the scent of the perfume on your skin changes as the day goes on which means you never get a good try of the product before you buy. The Fragrance Shop have answered my prayers and if you’re familiar with beauty boxes anyway then you will love the addition to the market of the Discovery Club Box, this edition comes packed with 7 vial samples (usually 5) which total at £40. At only £5 per quarter (£20 total subscription per year) you are already making a massive saving. TheDiscovery box gives you the perfect option to try them out at home before purchasing the full size bottle, the box also contains vouchers with £5 off each fragrance which is included in the box! The best thing is it contains both female and male scents which makes it a perfect gift for anyone or just a nice treat to yourself.


The box came beautifully wrapped in tissue paper and it was definitely the nicest smelling post that I have ever had!


The Fragrance Shop Discovery box offers some of their designer,celebrity and newly released fragrances from the worlds finest houses, I couldn’t wait to have a sniff of them!

Agent Provocateur – 30ml £35: The newest release from Agent Provocateur is their new luxurious and seductive scent. A perfume which I think will be perfect for the upcoming seasons,offering fruity scents with vanilla orchid and musks, thrown in with a lashing of chocolate, what could be better?!

Prada Candy Florale – 30ml £38: This is one of Pradas latest fragrances which contains a myriad of floral notes to create a scent as full of verve and vitality as Candy herself. The floral notes are fairly overpowering but which makes a great scent for summer.

Givenchy Dahlia Divin – 30ml £44.50: This luxurious gold fragrance is described as being a lush floral woody scent. The notes of the fragrance aren’t ones that I would normally wear in a fragrance so its not my favourite fragrance of the box!

Ghost Eclipse – 30ml £24.50: This is another new fragrance on the market for Ghost. This is a perfect summer scent containing summer fruits, making it vibrant and fruity but with a dynamic and fresh edge with the likes of sensual musks. Fruity fragrances are my favourite summer scent and this is definitely my favourite scent of the box!

Paco Rabanne Lady Millions Eau My Gold – 50ml £44.50: This new fragrance is described as being flirtatious,eccentric and mischievous than ever. Another fragrance with fruity notes and a base of contrasting sweet notes. This fragrance is another winner for me as I just love the fruity notes to the scent!

Male Scents – I passed these onto my boyfriend and which he loved both of them,my favourite had to be the Lacoste L!ve though!

Givenchy Gentlemen Only Intense – 50ml £47: The name captures this scent very well as it is a very masculine orientated fragrance. This contains richer scents of wood combined with added spices, and an amber and leather trail. It sounds just like Christmas to me!

Lacoste L!ve – 40ml £28.50: Lacoste’s newest fragrance on the market is L!ve which is a really fresh and fruity scent. The juice is fresh with added depth of liquorice, I don’t think I’ve ever heard of liquorice being in a fragrance before but it smells delicious!



I just love the concept of this box, trying before I buy is really a necessity for me as I don’t want to waste a lot of money on something that I may not like. As expected there were some fragrances that I didn’t like and some that I absolutely loved which is the whole point in the box, and which I think is a fantastic concept for people like me! These handy vial samples are also just fantastic for holidays and for nights out as they are so teeny! For only £5 per quarter how could you say no?!

Would you be interested in something like this? Have you tried a discovery club box before? Do you like beauty boxes?
