Secret Scent Box is a brand new subscription box service designed to allow subscribers to sample designer perfumes without having to purchase the full size bottle. It is great little concept as you do get a good sized sample to try out the perfume and get used to it. The samples arrived in a little black box with a velvet lined interior with the perfume being decanted into smaller spray bottles. Each box costs £15 including p&p so it is bargain for what you are getting.
I was sent the September box which had three fragrances – Vera Wang Sheer Veil, Armani Because It’s You and Calvin Klein Contradiction for Her.
The Vera Wang Sheer Veil smells strongly of Rose and Lavender and is a much more flowery in smell than I like. The Armani Because It’s You in contrast was much fruity and sweeter in scent, reminding me a bit of Ribena on some level. The Calvin Klein Contradiction for Her was the muskier of the three and by far my favourite with a strong sandalwood scent and muskier undertones.
I quite liked my little trial of this subscription box, the perfumes are a good handbag size and they are easy to spray on if you need a perfume top up throughout the day. It is a great way to try out new perfumes and I would recommend it if you want something different as a subscription box.
