Unboxed: The Eaux La La Discovery Box by the Perfume Society – May 2016

When it comes to the art of perfumes, France is definitely home to some of the world’s most famous perfumeries and in tribute to this, the Perfume Society’s latest instalment *The Eaux La La Discovery Box contains a so chic, sensual and an ever so luxurious collective of samples to give you a taster of what the French do best and it doesn’t fail to disappoint. As always their carefully hand picked selection really sticks to the theme throughout with a generous mix of samples from perfume houses we all love and know as well as some artisan gems, all of which are seasonally appropriate. In addition to the scents there’s also a couple of beauty treats too. 

Showcasing a collective of vials, the box introduces you to a wide array of new discoveries from both well-known perfume houses to those who are lesser known. Inside the box you can also expect to find information cards for each fragrance with a detailed overview as well as some perfume blotters too so you’re pretty much all set to find your next signature fragrance!

France is renowned for its perfume industry and ingeniously the Perfume Society have captured all things elegant, classic and innovative from a selection of undeniably french perfumers with an interesting and niche mix of fragrances from high-end brands to unique and artisanal perfumers giving you the perfect opportunity to discover some hidden gems. 

As always I’m really impressed and the box itself is laden with samples so you’re bound to fall in love with something. There’s no full sized products but there’s enough of each sample to use for at least 3 days or more giving you plenty of time to decide which one(s) you like best. I’ve become obsessed with these little vials mainly because I can spritz a different scent each day to match my mood or occasion. The only downside is be prepared to see a dent in your bank account especially if you can’t resist a cheeky splurge like me!
