Secret Scent Box – April 2022

If you are interested in perfume, trying out lots of different varieties or finding your new signature scent, Secret Scent Box is a great way to experience both new and classic scents.

Every month you are sent three spray vials of scents, which conveniently fit in your letterbox.

As well as the scents (which are the perfect size for travel too) you get notes on each perfume, which are really useful for figuring out what type you like and what suits you, as scent is such a personal thing.

Guess – Guess Dare

This scent was released in 2014, and the top notes of pear and kumquat come through for a fruity scent that isn’t too sweet. It’s a lovely light floral scent without being overly flowery and sweet, and it would work beautifully on a warm summer day. It’s definitely a relatively youthful scent, but it’s bright and fun without being immature. Overall a very pleasant scent.

Guerlain – Shalimar Philtre de Parfum 

From the floral of the Guess, this is definitely on the more sophisticated side. While the top notes are lavender, lemon, and bergamot I didn’t get too much of the first two, though the bergamot was string with a distinct powdery undertone. It was released just last year as a companion to the classic Shalimar, and while it’s definitely a woman’s perfume, the vanilla and patchouli give it a lovely warmth. Very pleasing and quite autumnal.

Ralph Lauren – Big Pony 2 Pink

This perfume was released in 2012, and it definitely feels like it’s aimed at the younger end of the market! The initial smell is very fruity indeed, very sweet, though the dry down to the tonal bean doesn’t take too long. If you can cope with the first sweet burst it is actually very pleasant, not as sweet as it initially seems. It’s a relatively simple fragrance and couple probably be layered successfully, and would work perfectly for summer.

Our score: 9.8/ 10

There are three nicely contrasting scents here. One thing this is useful for is to understand how different scents can work at different times of the day, occasions, or even seasons! While I didn't think I would like the Ralph Lauren, as I am not a fan of the over fruity or sweet, it ended up being really very pleasant, and great everyday scent. This is such a nice way to explore the world of perfumes, whether you are looking for just the right one or if. you like to match your scent to your particular circumstances and mood at any one time.
