My Sundays are all about product reviews and I won’t have it any other way. I usually spend my weekend photographing products, trying them, and blogging about them, and this week is all about The Fragrance Shop Discovery Club. This Discovery Club is all about perfume samples in a box, exclusive to The Fragrance Shop Discovery Box subscribers, and it is all about sniffing the latest scents.
For just £5 a quarter, you receive a Discovery Club box filled with about 10 samples of the latest, classic perfumes. Each box comes with different samples, so it’s a good idea to get all 4. You also get a couple of exclusive offers and previews of upcoming promotions and offers.
I was sent a Discovery Club box some weeks ago, and I received the ‘Classics Collection’, which is the current discovery box, to review. Here are my thoughts:
- The box had 10 samples in it, 6 for the ladies, and 4 for the men, so it is a perfect sample box for a couple to share.
- I like the idea of receiving samples in the post every quarter, so I know which fragrances I will be buying. Perfect for busy people, who do not have the time to go to the shops, to check out fragrances they like.
- The £5 for 10 samples in a box is quite a good deal.
- Samples of some of my favourite classic perfumes were in this box. Perfumes like Jimmy Choo by Jimmy Choo , Nina by Nina Ricci, and Lady Million by Paco Rabanne, were all in the box.
- This Discovery box can also serve as a gift to a loved one. If you are not sure of the exact perfume to get a friend or a family member, you could just get a box.
- I adore the packaging as well, so pretty.
I think this is a great idea. I get tired of perfumes easily, so I usually go for smaller bottles like a 50ml as opposed to 100ml/125ml. So the fact that I can try various sample sized perfumes at the same time appeals to me. I will recommend The Fragrance Shop Discovery Box to any perfume lover. Four boxes at just £5 each, is definitely a bargain, and I am 100% sure it will put a smile on everyone’s face. Also, shopping at The Fragrance Shop is socially responsible too. Five pence from every sale made is donated to ‘Rays of Sunshine’ children’s charity. So far, over £500,000 hss been donated, helping to enrich the lives of many seriously ill children in the UK.
Any charity that has to do with children, has a soft sopt in my heart, so I will be buying the next box in March once it is released (a new Discovery Club box is released every quarter), and I will continue to shop at The Fragrance Shop. The stores usually have some of the best perfume deals in the market anyway, so it won’t be too hard.

Thanks for reading and have a great week.
*PR samples included.
This is a really great idea for discovering new scents, I’d get this purely to get to know what scents my other half likes as he is so hard to buy for. The price of this is really great too!
Yea I love the price so much. So affordable.
This is a great idea, but I think my bank balance would hate me as I’m addicted to perfume anyway! Boo.
Yea me too…Lol.
I’m quite loyal concerning my fragrances… this won’t be of any use to me as I stick with 5-6 perfumes!
Ah ok. This box isn’t for you then. I like discovering new scents.
This is a wonderful idea. It is a good opportunity to know the different scents. I will like to explore it.
Pls do Osime x
This is a really great way to sample so many different perfumes!
Yea it is Lubka.
I am a huge fan of these boxes because I hate sampling a perfume in a department store x
Yea me too. The shops are always too busy.
Ohhh I’ve never heard of the fragrance shop discovery club before! What a fab idea and a great way to discover new perfumes. Thank you for sharing 🙂
Yea it is. Thanks Sara.
This is a really nice idea. Especially as the only perfume I wear is a £3.99 one from Lidl!!
Nice Charli x
oh what a fab idea and means you get to smell differently every day and you can see if there’s any you like enough to buy a bigger bottle great way to test out new fragrances
Yea it is a great idea. Saves money too so you don’t splash out a fragrance you don’t like.
Love the idea of a perfume beauty box. Gives you the chance to try lots of difference fragrances before you buy
I love perfumes and the Fragrance Shop Discovery Club sounds like a great idea as you get to try lots of different scents! x
Yea it is Lilinha. A great little box x
I do love a good perfume and I like that they give you samples so you can decide what you would like to have!
Yes Ana x
Another great review, love that you listed the pros and cons.
Glad you like the post Tara. Thanks for reading x
£5 is such a good deal! Plus that many samples would actually take me a while to get through.
It is a great deal.
I LOVE perfume! These samples look great! I always think perfume is such a personal thing and different scents suit different people so the samples are a great idea!
I agree x
I love these little samplers especially as a little filler gift, they are a great way to find new scents without spending a fortune x
True Ems x
This looks like a fab box – you get to try so many samples for such an affordable price!
Yea. I love it.
I do think this is a great idea actually. I like to wear a fragrance for a couple of days before I decide if I like it and this makes that process really convenient. It might be better if they did just ladies / mens boxes too as the mens ones would be wasted on me.
Yea it is a great box but yea the samples for the men/women may be wasted on those who are not a couple.
As someone who loves fragrance, this is a great idea. I love trying new scents all the time xxx
Yea me too x
I usually love to stick in one perfume – mayb it’s loyalty. lol. But yeah, this kind of idea not bad, especially for discovering new smell, new indentity. 😉
Yea I know but I get bored with fragrances so I like to try various scents.
Fantastic, fantastic idea. Best of all worlds I would say. Good price, many products. Awesome
Yea it is a good price x
I have tried something very similar, the Viva Box. You got 7 sample and a voucher to buy one full sized bottle. Love this idea
Oh not heard of that. Will look it up x
I think this is a great way to find a new fragrance without buying the whole bottle and then finding you don’t like it.
Yea I think so too. It is a great idea.
I do like the idea of this as you can try out perfumes you’ve had your eye on before the splurge.
