Try Before You Buy : Secret Scent Box* | One For The Fragrance Lovers [& 15% Off!!]


I'm one of those people who constantly worry about smelling like hell on earth. As soon as I catch a whiff of something remotely putrid, I automatically assume it's me. Is anyone else like this? The fear is real

Sort of stemming from this very real phobia... one of my fav hobbies currently is sampling & basking in the glory of perfume and scent. I'm obsessed with the idea of having that signature scent which reminds everyone of you, represents your personality & which, when you catch a waft of it, brings happy memories of Summers past flooding back. I love how perfumes have a range of notes, different bases, and how the smell of certain ingredients can make me go a bit wild. You know what I'm talking about gang; when you smell an aftershave on that proper hotty in the grey suit and it makes you want to mount him. That.

There's something just so special, enjoyable - so luxurious about choosing a new fragrance. And having those beautiful glass bottles lined up on ya dresser. But what I don't enjoy - at all - about this experience are the HUGE price tags often associated with this new found perfumery love. As a tramp's arse, I'm regularly thwarted in my quest to seek out new scents; merely because of the cost. And those sh*tty samples in magazines don't really cut it in gauging whether a perfume is for you or not. So what's a gal to do?!

It's also worth mentioning that [unlike some other monthly boxes who pyar tie you down with contracts galore and 'cancellation terms'] SSB is commitment free [like most fellas] with no contract, no delivery charges and the ability to cancel your subscription at any time with their monthly plan. You can even send one of their babein' boxes as a gift. So much yes.

As you can see, the three beaut high-end fragrances I had the pleasure of trying via Secret Scent Box were Burberry - 'Brit', Stella McCartney 'Peony' and DKNY's 'Be Delicious Night.' None of which come with the kinda price points where I could just afford to pick them up on a whim. Especially Peony [which is, ironically and of typically, my fav out of the three!]

I've fallen in a big way for Peony. This will be the next perfume I purchase full size, definitely. I can't wait to see what bargains World Duty Free have, when it comes to getting my mitts on this bad boy. And that's all thanks to SSB - I'm waaaay too poor and housebound to have discovered this scent otherwise. Brit is another scent I'm enjoying - one I wouldn't rule out picking up in the future, either. See why I love this idea now, guys?! And the little tester size samples are perf to stick in ya clutch bag ahead of a date / night out / meeting - there to have ya back when your sudden, irrational fear of smelling rears its ugly head again!

I've really enjoyed trialling this box - I think it's a really great idea & a cost-effective way to explore what's up and coming in the world of fragrance. Plus, Peony = new bae

If you fancy trying out the Secret Scent Box experience for yourself, use code LLL15 for 15% off your first box, on any of SSB's plans.
