Unboxed: The Scent of a Man Discovery Box by the Perfume Society

There’s definitely something very alluring when you a catch a whiff of a nicely scented man, I remember when I use to travel to work on the tube into London and I’d be sitting next to gentleman who was doused in a bubble of fragrance I’d always want to move up a little closer to figure out the notes – very innocently of course and while I was never brave enough to ask what they were wearing my initial thoughts were “ooooh that would smell great on my other half!” There’s no doubt that us ladies have been utterly spoilt by the Perfume Society with their wonderful curations so it’s only fair that they’ve launched their first ever edition for men and to no surprise this debut is literally bursting at the seams with 13 fragrances and also touches on the beauty front too, just in time for Father’s Day and any other special occasions that may be taking place this year, it really does make the perfect gift.
