The Discovery Club: The Perfume Subscription Box

discovery club fragrance shop review

When it comes to subscription boxes, I've tried quite a few whether it's beauty, food or accessories. One thing I hadn't tried was a perfume or fragrance themed subscription box - so of course, I had to try it! The Discovery Club is a quarterly subscription box from The Fragrance Shop, so you can try new fragrances and scents every few months throughout the year, or a one off. 

The Discovery Club box* contains perfume samples, and whilst perfume samples have annoyed me in the past in beauty subscription boxes - I think if the box is advertised as a perfume sample box and it's sole purpose is for you to try new scents then that is absolutely fine. my box contained 5 individual perfume samples (each box contains 5 samples) with a mix of men's and women's perfume to try. You also recieve vouchers in each box, this box contained £30 worth of vouchers that expire on the 30th November - giving you plenty of time to use them on Christmas presents! Plus, the mini sample sizes are ideal for throwing in a makeup bag or handbag, I really hate carrying a bulky bottle of perfume around with me in my bag but sometimes it's nice to have a spritz.

 I do like the concept of this box and whilst I wouldn't want a monthly subscription of perfume samples, I'd be more than happy to subscribe to a box every 4 months for £5. My favourites from this box were the Jimmy Choo sample (mens) and the Jean Paul Gaultier intense which has shot to the top of my 'perfumes to own' list - yes, I have one of those lists.
