On today’s blog post I am doing a first, which is the unboxing of the August Secret Scent Box. I’ve been looking forward to receiving this and to share it with you all. Thank you to Secret Scent Box for this wonderful collaboration.
I’ve read a lot about this new subscription box which came into the market in the Spring of 2016. Secret Scent Box works by sending a box to you once a month with three designer and branded fragrances inside. The bottle sizes are all 3ml which allow for up to 30 days of perfume between the three you receive, that is roughly four spritz a day.
Scent Box comes in perfumes ‘For Her’ and colognes ‘For Him’ and you’re guaranteed a new fragrance and designer brands to be included. Priding themselves on supplying a range of different scents so that you experience a range of types, Secret Scent Box are fast becoming a popular choice for bloggers and subscription box lovers alike.
I’ve been lucky enough to work with Secret Scent Box this month to bring you the contents of their August box. Not only have I photographed the subscription but there will also be a link to my vlog of this reveal too, where I give my opinion and show you the sizes of the perfumes.
There are many great things about this box, one of which is the design which features enough perfume for the month in which you receive it. Another fabulous aspect is the size of the bottles used as they are perfect for your handbag. The bottles are individually labelled and are easy to read and distinguish. Something even better is that the box fits through your letterbox so there will be no trips to collect any missed post.
Obviously a risk that you take when ordering any kind of secret subscription box is that you are unaware of the products and they might not all be what you will like. However these little perfumes would make great stocking fillers considering we are in the second half of the year fast approaching Christmas. As with everything it would be rare that you would like all of the contents, however I would wear all of the perfumes I received in this August Secret Scent Box, so luckily I am happy about that.
Secret Scent Box is all about the mystery of getting perfumes you may not have tried before. Most of us only purchase a larger scent bottle if we’ve tried it before. As we all know branded perfume isn’t cheap and most of us rely on occasions to receive a new product. By subscribing to Scent Box you can try designer fragrances for a fraction of the cost of a large bottle, and in sizes that are far more convenient to use and carry with you.
It’s an exciting concept to get something new and the way that it’s all presented in the box is professional. The fragrances are 100% authentic and the brands that can be included range from DKNY, Armani and Dior, to Paco Rabanne, Joop and Prada (to name but a few).
So what were the fragrances inside the August box? I think that you’re desperate to know, so here is the reveal for the August Scent Box.
Armani – Diamonds
Jimmy Choo – Illicit Flower
Vera Wang – Princess
The little cards contained inside are such a fabulous touch to this subscription box. It’s interesting to know what has gone into making a scent. Have you ever looked into what notes make your favourite perfumes? If you compare them I guarantee that some of the aspects will be the same, such as one of the top notes or one of the bass notes. This is a good way of working out if you’re going to like the fragrance or not even before you spray it. Something else to consider as well is spraying the perfume on both your clothing and your skin, because it often smells different between the two. Levels in your skin can effect the smell of the fragrance so it’s always worth doing both before making a decision of if you will wear it.
The level of detail and professionalism that Secret Scent Box undertake each month is excellent, and I can recommend this subscription if you’re into perfumes, or if you would like to try something new. You are able to cancel your subscription at any time, and payment is taken on the same date every month if you do wish to join. Each month the new box will arrive during the first few days of the month, and then you can enjoy your new fragrances for a month before the next box arrives through your door. Subscription is currently £15 a month and this includes your delivery.
Below is a link to my video of the unboxing if you wish to hear my thoughts for yourself, and see the physical size of the bottles as I hold them.
