Discovering New Fragrances With Secret Scent Box

In today's post I'm talking about Secret Scent Box which is a monthly subscription service which helps let you discover new designer perfumes and aftershaves depending on your preference. Your Secret Scent Box arrives in a little square box which can be popped through your letterbox and inside you get three 3ml fragrances to try which have been made to last 30 days.

I'm a bit of a hoarder when it comes to perfumes and I have a rotating makeup organiser (I think that's what they're called?) which is basically filled with perfumes. Some are cheap and some are high-end - I like a bit of both and I love finding a good dupe too! So I loved the sound of Secret Scent Box because it's a good way to try out some perfumes and you might find one you love which you might have not picked up initially and it means that the perfumes aren't taking up a lot of room because they're 3ml each. It also means they're great for popping in your bag too. 

Inside the August Edition box I received Stella McCartney Stella, Tommy Hilfiger Tommy Girl Sun Kissed and Elizabeth Arden Always Red Femme.

Stella McCartney - Stella 
Described as a feminine and sophisticated floral fragrance which has been designed as homage to the English Rose in full bloom in a classic English garden. With Top Notes of Mandarin Essence, Middle Notes of English Rose Accord and Base Notes of Amber Accord.

Considering "Stella" is a best seller perfume on a lot of known beauty websites I've never tried it before but now that I've tried it, I now know why it's a best seller. It's lovely! I feel like it's a scent you can wear throughout the year too. I find some scents are more suited for certain seasons if that makes sense but I would definitely pick it up no matter what the season. It's definitely going on my beauty wishlist!

Tommy Hilfiger - Tommy Girl Sun Kissed 
Tommy Girl Sun Kissed is a brand new scent from Tommy Hilfiger which was launched this year which captures the spirit of summer adventure in a floral, fruity scent. With Top Notes of Cranberry, Pixie Tangerine and Red Apple, Middle Notes of Cranberry, Beach Gardenia and Blue Violet and Base Notes of Birchwood, Rum and Peach Cobbler.

I also really like the Tommy Girl Sun Kissed scent and I think it's a really nice uplifting scent but it's more of a summer scent to me which is kind of expected with the description talking about "capturing the spirit of summer adventure". But I do think it's a perfume I'd reach for often as it's a perfect every day kind of scent. It's not too overpowering but it's not super deep either. It kind of reminds me of one of the recently launched Yardley London Flowerful perfumes but I can't remember which one.

Elizabeth Arden - Always Red Femme 
Described as an intriguing, feminine and dynamic fragrance which gives a spirited and sensual expression of the woman who sets the New York City pace. With Top Notes of Raspberry, Lemon, Pear and Blackcurrant Buds, Middle Notes of Peach Blossom, Jasmine and Davana and Base Notes of Vanilla, Patchouli, Cedarwood and Moss.

Unfortunately I have already tried the Elizabeth Arden Always Red Femme EDT and I'm not a fan. My mum picked it up recently and going by the notes it's made up of I would've thought I'd have loved it but it's just not one for me. However I do think the full size bottle is very pretty and I think it would make a nice gift for someone. 

Have you heard of Secret Scent Box before? Does it sound like a subscription service you're interested in trying?
