Secret Scent Box – June 2022

Secret Scent Box sends you three different scents in convenient spray vials every month. It comes right through the letterbox, and includes cards to give you an idea of the different scent notes, especially useful if your are trying to figure out your own preferences!

The box will combine classics with new releases, so there’s always an excellent variety of things to try.

The vials are the perfect size to use repeatedly, and are also very handy for when your traveling or out and about for a long day.

Elizabeth Arden – Green Tea Pomegranate

The name made me think of something very sweet and fruity, but while there are definite fruit notes this was more layered and interesting than I expected. The fruitiness is present but not overpowering , and the middle notes, especially the tea, temper the sweetness with a lovely green background. It’s definitely a scent for spring or summer, fresh and young.

Choapard – Happy Magnolia Bliss

This is a brand new fragrance for 2022, and as you can imagine, florals are strong in this one! The citrus and vetiver open the flowery smell out so something more interesting, with an almost peppery undertone. It has a definite springtime feel. My one observation was that it didn’t seem to last very long, but as an everyday daytime scent it’s very pleasant.

Givenchy – Hot Couture

This is another fruity scent, but is much more on the sophisticated and elegant side. The raspberry top notes are immediate but I found the pepper and vetiver came through almost immediately, and ended with an incredibly smokiness. This is really a rather intriguing scent, it feels much more evening to me than daytime, maybe that’s the smokiness! I suspect it might be a love it or hate it type, but I actually love it, definitely a woman’s scent rather than a girl’s.

 

 

 

 

Our score: 9.8/ 10

Perfume is such a personal thing, but it can end up being quite expensive to buy lots of bottles when trying to find your favourites, or even a particular signature scent. This is where Secret Scent is so useful, whether you're looking for something new or simply want to find out your preferences. I'm really pleased at this mont's selection, I like the contrast between the fresh two and then the alluring, sexy Givenchy, which is one I hadn't come across before. Definitely one to save for warm evenings out!
