The Perfume Society: Precious Perfumes Discovery Box

It's been a while since I bought a Perfume Society Discovery Box. Precious Perfumes Discovery Box costs £17.50 for non-members and £12.50 for members plus P&P. But.... they are currently offering free P&P as a Black Friday Deal which ends on Monday at 10.00am. Use code "thankyou". 

Pick yours up HERE.

Inside is:

Charlotte Tilbury Scent of a Dream EdP 1.5ml which is a CHYPRE FLORAL. It has top notes of Joy accord (lemon, peach, black pepper, saffron, mandarin & bergamot) with a heart of Fleurotic accord (tuberose, jasmine, patchouli, frankincense, lily of the valley, orange flower, rose, magnolia) with base notes of Psycho active accord (fire tree, Iso E super, hedione, ambroxan, precious woods, cistus, amber, musks). I rather like this one!

Miller Harris Etui Noir EdP 2ml (which I've tried before and love!) and is from the LEATHER family and has top notes of bergamot, tangerine, elemi gum with a heart of Moroccan iris butter, incense, cashmere wood and a base of Indonesian patchouli, Haitian vetiver, leather, amber, birch and labdanum.

From Maison Francis Kurkdjian we have Baccarat Rouge 540 EdP 2ml which is from the FLORIENTAL fragrance family which has top notes of jasmine and saffron, a heart of amberwood and base notes of fir, resin and cedar. The perfume began as an exclusive commission for French crystal house Baccarat who wanted to offer a limited run of 250 flacons to honour their 250th anniversary.

Bvlgari's Rose Goldea EdP 1.5ml is from the FLORAL family and is deeply rosey and floral. It has top notes of pomegranate, musk, rose and bergamot with a heart of damask rose, jasmine, peony and peach and base notes of musk, olibanum, sandalwood and vanilla. Love this one!

Nejma 7 EdP 1.5ml is from the GOURMAND family. This is a perfume house I've never heard of before. It's extremely mouthwatering!  With top notes of pink grapefruit, green mandarin and Calabrian citrus a heart of neroli flower, cacao and coconut with a base of oudh, white musk and patchouli. Again, love this one!

Versace Eros Pour Femme EdT 5ml is from the FLORAL FRUITY family and has top notes of lemon, mandarin, raspberry, white currant with a heart of jasmine, freesia, magnolia and orange blossom with base notes of patchouli, exotic woods, ambrox and musk. This is really beautiful - it's fresh and fruity with a floral heart. Love the cute little bottle too.

I've already had the pleasure of trying latest launch from Beaufort London. Fathom V EdP 2ml (in Bloom Perfumery's October Sample Pack) which is from the FOUGERE family and has top notes of earth, green leaves, aquatic notes, a heart of cumin, lily and black pepper with base notes of vetiver, moss and salt. Huge fan of this brand and love this.

From Ormonde Jayne we have Tsarina EdP 2ml which is from the FLORIENTAL fragrance family. It has top notes of mandarin, bergamot, coriander and cassis with a heart of hedoine, freesia, jasmine, sambac, iris and suede with base notes of sandalwood, cedar, vanilla bean, labdanum and musk. This is beautiful with spicy, rich and warm woody and slightly sweet notes. Simply stunning!

The final perfume in the box is Hermes Galop D'Hermes Pure Perfume 4ml which is from the FLORIENTAL family. It has notes of quince, rose, saffron and leather. Again, I love this one!

Extras as always are fab!

We have a 30ml bottle of Molton Brown's newest launch Rosa Absolute Bath & Shower Gel. I've been itching to try this so I'm delighted to find a small bottle in the box. It has notes of blackcurrant, geranium, Italian rose and patchouli.

And a full size bottle of Nails Inc Electric Avenue polish which is perfect for party nails and worth £15!

I'm absolutely delighted with the contents of the box. Did you pick one up or will you?
