2018 has barely kicked off, but we all collectively seem determined to make this the year that we get our lives together, we learn more, we try more, we do more. 2018 is the year we manage our time more effectively, we branch out of our comfort zones, we try new things and allow ourselves to grow.
Starting small, I declared in the early days of January that 2018 would be the year I branch out in terms of my beauty routines. Instead of reaching for the same products, the same fragrances, repurchasing items just because they do the job rather than because I absolutely adore them; this year I am determined to try new things and discover more hidden gems within beauty to share with you all.
A nifty, and extremely convenient, way of doing this, is Secret Scent Box*, who have ever so kindly sent me one of their gorgeous fragrance subscription boxes to share with you all! The box offers 30 day’s worth of samples of each of the three designer fragrances included, and is a fantastic way to try-before-you-buy, and discover your new fragrance loves.
I do somewhat tend to think that the notion of a ‘signature scent’ is over. The fragrance market is so full of gorgeous scents, with emerging fragrance creators, and even your favourite shops, jumping on the bandwagon to offer beautiful scents. As an utterly shameless perfume creator, for me there’s nothing better than nabbing a new bottle to bulk up my (already pretty packed) perfume shelf.
Also tucked away inside this cute little box, are note cards for each fragrance, detailing the brand’s ideas for the scent, along with the key notes in each fragrance. I really appreciate this little touch from Secret Scent Box, and know that if you, like me, is a total nerd looking to learn little snippets all the time; you’ll love this subscription.
Ranging between £13 – £15 depending on the subscription plan you choose, and with boxes for men, women, or as a surprise gift for someone you love (or just a me-to-me treat, I won’t tell!) Secret Scent box have really managed to offer something for everyone to enjoy.
The lovely team have been kind enough to offer my readers a 15% discount when you sign up to receive a box! Simply enter the code AILEENMCCOLL15 at the checkout and go treat yo’self!
Until next time!
