Leighton Denny's EDP Light & Dark EDP Discovery Set* RRP £38  has four travel-friendly and airport security friendly perfumes. Every scent in Leighton Denny's range is inspired by his life and travels. All of the scents can be mixed together so you're not just buying 4 perfumes, you can make your own fragrance cocktail and mix them together to make your own perfect scent for each day.

You can also pick up the miniatures for £9.50 each if you have a favourite that you would like to pop in your bag or hand luggage. They are also all refillable so if you have the full-size perfume at home, you can refill and have your new favourite scent with you all day long.

Original - Gold/Yellow

"A fruity mixture of pepper, myrrh and incense, offers a warm welcoming unique fragrance. With its heart of gardenia, jasmine, lily and rose, which are merged with top notes of mandarin, grapefruit, peach and white pepper."

I really like the Original scent, it's very warming and it's definitely a scent that can be worn throughout the year. I can definitely pick up the fruity-citrusy notes and it's a very unusual scent. I haven't really had or tried a perfume which smells like the Original scent before so it's nice to have a different scent to add to my purse spray collection.

Lively - Green (unisex)

"Sparkling citrus notes of bergamot, lemon and grapefruit entwined with beautiful white florals and a warm spicy accord of nutmeg, ginger, pepper and cardamom. Base notes of sandalwood, patchouli, vetiver, ambers and musk's complete this aroma."

I do like this scent but to me, I would say it's leaning more towards a man's aftershave kind of scent. It's quite strong when it's first sprayed on but settles to a more welcoming fragrance.

Delightful - Pink

"Luminous and sensual, a bright burst of red fruits is delicately enveloped by a gentle bouquet of lotus flower, mirabilis jasmine and pink violet. Underneath, sweet musk is punctuated by the slightest creamy vanilla and a light coconut scent."

This basically describes my perfect perfume scent, so it's no surprise that I love this one and it's definitely my favourite from the Discovery Set. I can definitely pick up the jasmine, creamy vanilla, sweet musk and coconut scent, which is basically like heaven to me. I'm definitely going to have to pick this up in the full-size bottle because I'm going to be lost without it once I finish the travel size perfume. I also like to mix this with Lively just to take off the aftershave edge of a little.

Desire - Purple (unisex)

"A celebration of dark woods including vetivert, patchouli and cedar tempered with moss, amber and crisp spicy elements of pepper and nutmeg. Citrus top note of grapefruit, lemon and bergamot is warmed by a heart of neroli."

I also really like this scent and it mixes well with all of the other perfumes and smells lovely on its own. I think I will be saving this travel size perfume for Autumn time because it's a very warming scent and I think it'll fit perfectly with the crisp autumn morning air. 


Overall I think this a great set of perfumes and would be great as a gift to someone or if you just fancy treating yourself and trying out the scents before you purchase the full size. They all are very long lasting and obviously great for popping in your bag when you're on the go.
