Do you have a favourite, go to perfume you wear all the time or do you like switching your fragrances up?
I used to like wearing different scents for different seasons and one I liked wearing just in the evening too…. and then somehow over the past few years, as they ran out I didn’t replace them and just stuck to my favourite which is Jean-Paul Gautier – the Classique version which is stronger … but I’ve missed wearing other perfumes and when I’ve been flying backwards and forwards to Lanzarote I keep eyeing loads up in Duty Free!
Anyway I was offered the chance to try a perfume subscription service that The Fragrance Shop have launched here and basically you get to choose from over a hundred of the latest perfumes and they send you a new one every month – 30 days worth of scent in a spray bottle with a cute, reusable case to put it in – perfect for popping in your handbag or travelling.
You select which ones you want to try and then if there’s one you really love and would like a full-size version, you can claim that month’s subscription fee back on a full-sized bottle – so I think it’s a brilliant idea!
I was gifted a 3 month subscription and chose to try YSL’s Black Opium here, Marc Jacob’s Decadence here and Giorgio Armani Acqua Di Gioia here and I’ve really enjoyed trying some different scents for the first time in ages…
All 3 are really nice but the Marc Jacobs one is soooooo heavenly!!! You know when you can’t stop sniffing yourself?!
I thought this would make such a brilliant and unusual gift, so was looking at their site and you can actually get a 3, 6 or 12 month gift voucher subscription for somebody.
I’m definitely going to do it – you can also subscribe for aftershaves here which would be great for Fathers Day, Birthday’s etc!
