The Perfume Society: Try Before You Fly Discovery Box

I absolutely love The Perfume Society Discovery Boxes. Their latest one is "Try Before You Fly" and is stuffed full of perfume samples, a trial size scent and suntan goodies. 

Retailing at £12.50 plus P&P for VIP subscribers and £15 plus P&P for everyone else. You can become a subscriber HERE (it costs £25 per year - you receive an introductory box and subsequent boxes discounted as well as 8 editions of the Scented Letter (downloadable magazine).

Inside is:

A luxe trial size of Prada's Candy Kiss EdP 7ml (which is the perfect size to pop in your hand luggage). It's from the Oriential fragrance family and has top notes of musk, a heart of musk and orange blossom and a base of musk and vanilla. It's a gourmand scent with a sensual note. It's absolutely beautiful and would be great to wear on sunny, balmy evenings. Love this!

I've previously enjoyed perfumes by Agonist, a Swedish perfume house and in the box is Blue North 2ml from the Woody fragrance family. With top notes of cardamon, rosemary and spearmint a heart of orris, mint, ginger root and helitrope with a base of white cedar, sandalwood, vanilla and musk. It's fresh, cooling and quite unlike anything I own and I absolutely love it!

I'd been wanting to try Miu Miu EdP for a while. It's from the Floral family and has top notes of lily of the valley, lemon and bergamot with a heart of peach, blackcurrant, rose, green notes and jasmine with a base of white musk and akigalawood. It's fruity with a floral green note and is quite mouthwatering and is simply stunning (I'd also love the full size bottle to display on my dressing table!)

L'Artisan's Bucoliques de Provence EdP 1.5ml is from the Fresh family and has top notes of juniper berries, a heart of lavender and a base of leather and iris. I find this one aromatic and quite different.

Illicit Flower EdT 2ml by Jimmy Choo is from the Floral family and has top notes of apricot, mandarin and freesia with a heart of rose, grapefruit blossom and jasmine. It has base notes of musk, sandalwood and cashmeran. A fruity/floral run-of-the mill sort of scent.

The Merchant of Venice's Rose Moceniga EdP 2ml is from the Floral family and has top notes of green lemon, blackcurrant leaves and rose with a heart of magnolia, lotus flower and rose absolute. With base notes of vanilla, musk, white cedar and amber crystal. 

Les Cocottes de Paris Melle Cleo EdP 2ml is also from the Floral family. With top notes of rosewood, bergamot and lychee, a heart of night-blooming cereus, ylang ylang and rose with a base of cotton flower and lichen. It's quite a powerful and heady scent.

Barbour for Her EdT 1.5ml is from the Floral family and has top notes of redcurrant and pink pepper, a heart of rose, jasmine and blush peony with a base of musk, vanilla and vetiver. This is the debut fragrance from Barbour and it's absolutely stunning.

The final three items are perfect for your trip abroad or staycation and are in generous sizes:

Lancaster Tax Maximiser 50ml which helps to prolong your suntan while caring for your skin and a 3ml Velvet Touch Cream SPF30 along with a 25ml Ultrasun Face Anti-Age SPF30.

A really great box I think. What are your thoughts?
