Secret Scent Box- September 2017 Review

About the box
Secret Scent is a fragrance subscription box for both men and women (you can select your preference of gender on the website). Every month you will receive three different surprise fragrances, a 30 day supply or 9ml, in total, along with an information card for each one.

£15/month, free P&P.

What I got

This is the September edition of the Secret Scent box, with another three little trials of fragrance.

The first scent (top) was the Calvin Klein Contradiction For Her. The RRP of this is £70.00 but you can actually get it for £19.99 on The Perfume Shop website. It has a kind of spicy undertone to it, which I'm guessing is the sandalwood? It's not my favourite to be honest but I might wear it if I was in the mood.

Top notes: Pepper flower, Orchid, Eucalyptus
Middle notes: Jasmine, Lily of the Valley, Peony, Rose
Base notes: Sandalwood, Amboti Wood, Tonka Bean

The next scent (middle) was Armani Because It's You. I loved the Armani fragrance sent last month, and it seems I must love Armani scents as this one is my favourite this month too! It's smells so fruity and sweet but in a grown up sort of way, not in a sickly cake sort of way. This is available at The Perfume Shop at RRP for £47.

Top notes: Raspberry, Blackcurrant, Neroli essence
Middle notes: Violet, Rose, Jasmin Sambac Absolute
Base notes: Patchouli essence, Vanilla extract, Musks

The final scent (bottom) was Vera Wang Sheer Veil. It's not particularly striking to me, it smells really 'samey' and not much like anything unique. It's not really me to be honest. The RRP for this is £60 but you can get this for £18.95 from Fragrance Direct.

Top notes: Rose, Lavender
Middle notes: Violet
Base notes: Gardenia, Lily

Final thoughts
I have liked my little two month trial of this subscription, but I don't think I'll be continuing it. Not because this isn't a great service- it arrives quickly, posts right through the letterbox easily, and the samples are pretty generous. I think I just don't use fragrances often enough to justify it, and I'm incredibly fussy about scents too. If you're a fragrance lover who can't get enough this really is the go to subscription for you, and I can't fault their customer service and postage times.
