I have recently been introduced to a fragrance box by The Perfume Society and I’m kinda obsessing over it. I love pefume, I collect it and if it smells good I’ll wear it. I was very excited to try the latest Fashion, Fabric and Fragrance box in conjuncion with fashion week. This is a great way to try so many different brands without committing to purchasing a full size bottle.
This box has been curated to evoke the texture of fabric through scent. Every sample mimcs a ‘fabric’ and there is an untold story behind each one. It goes much deeper than being just a perfume. I really like the thought and effort that has gone into creating this, because for me, it’s something a little more different than your standard beauty boxes and I for one think, once can never have too many fragrances.
The perfume society are known for the expertise in scents and can provide you with so much knowledge and information behind each perfume. Each one has a tale and the more you find out, the more you will be intrigued. I for one, am one of those people who loves to hear the back story on products.
You get eight mini fragrance samples, a shower gel, scented tattoos and some hair mist. Not bad for £12.50 (Plus P&P of £2.00) if you’re a subscriber. For all non subscribers, you can buy this at one off price of £17.50 (Plus £2 P&P)
Purchase your box between 8th September – 11th October and you will be entered into a prize draw to receive one of the full fragrances or extras.

The box also comes with a set of postcards, each that details high notes of each scent and prompting you to answer questions relating to each one. I am a geek, and love this, and I thoroughly enjoyed reading each card. I found it so informative and helpful and it even tells you where you can purchase the full sizes from.
I’m really very impressed with this box and would encourage everyone to try at least one. It’s a great way to discover some new brands (as I have) and also to revisit some old favourites.
A few of my favourites from this collection was Ellie Saab Girl of Now which comes from the Floral Gourmand family (see my trusty postcard told me this) with top notes of mandarin orange, pear and pistachio (yum).
The second being Mugla Aura Mugler, from the Oriental family, and it’s top notes are Tiger Liana with a mix of Orange Blossom.
Finally, La Perla – simly divine. It comes from the Solar Oriental family and has top notes of mandarin and white pepper.
If you like the sound of this box and any of these scents, you can pick them up right here. I think it’s simply delightful!
