The Fragrance Shop Discovery Club

There are so many perfumes on the market it can often be difficult choosing a scent which suits you. Often you quickly spritz one on in the shop, decide you like it enough to purchase, only to get home and find that it doesn’t smell as nice as it did initially or that it doesn’t last long enough. If only there was a way you could try different scents at your leisure and in the comfort of your own home!

Discovery Club* from The Fragrance Shop allows you to do just that. Priced at just £5 per quarter the box is a great way to discover new fragrances and to try them before you buy and, better still, it is delivered straight to your door.

Perfumes from My Youth

It’s so easy to attach memories to a scent and perfumes have a real ability to invoke strong emotions as a result. I think thats why many of us have “signature scents” or get annoyed when a favourite perfume is discontinued.

There are a few perfumes that I discovered when I was younger and that I will always have a soft spot for, even if they aren’t what you would call “classic” or even particularly popular scents, and today I thought I’d write about them.
