Most of us have a favourite go-to fragrance; often one we’ve been habitually wearing for years because, let’s face it, finding a new perfume is a daunting experience! A great way to discover new perfumes at a low cost is by subscribing to a fragrance subscription box, which will drop testers on your doormat every month or so, giving you the opportunity to try out new scents without the commitment of buying an expensive bottle.
Here are a few of the best:
Scent & Co
Scent & Co gives you the choice between choosing your own fragrance from a collection of over 450 or allowing an expert to hand-pick one on your behalf. Scents are from premium brands, including Tom Ford, Gucci, Giorgio Armani and Hugo Boss, and each box, which costs £14.95, contains a month’s supply (10ml) of the chosen fragrance.
Secret Scent Box
Choose from women’s, men’s or gift secret scent box, and off you go! You can opt for a rolling monthly subscription, or pay 6 or 12 months upfront to save money. Boxes contain three 3ml designer fragrances with an accompanying fragrance note card, and cost from £13 a month.
Parfumado is a subscription box from high street fragrance store, The Perfume Shop. You can choose from their range of over 350 perfumes, or ask for advice if you are unsure. Each box costs £12.95, and you will receive one 8ml perfume each month, plus a one-off free travel case gift.
Bare & Bond
Bare & Bond promises an entirely new fragrance experience by taking you off the well-travelled track of designer perfume and into the new world of independent perfumers. Subscription boxes cost from £14.95 a month, and contain one 8ml bottle of perfume.
Scent Addict offers a very simple subscription process – simply order your first fragrance from the extensive range, they will send it along with a refillable atomiser, and for £12 a month you can refill it with any perfume of your choice. Fragrances include Mugler, Caroline Herrera, and Lancôme.
