The Perfume Society: Latest Launches

I can never resist a The Perfume Society box and the current one "Latest Launches" is just great. Costing £15, including P&P if you are VIP member and £17.50 plus P&P if you just want a one off box.

Here are the sample vials inside:

Shay & Blue Dandelion Fig 2ml (FRESH) - was one I was keen to try (having loved just about all the perfumes from the brand).  With top notes of dandelion and lemongrass, a heart of tomato vine and juniper and a base of fig. I find it dries down to an earthy fruity note and full size is now firmly on the wishlist. Love this!

Annick Goutal Tenue de Soiree EdP 0.8ml (CHYPRE) - in which the main accord revolves around iris with patchouli. It's not too powdery and I kind of like it.

Parfums de Marly Delina EdP 1.2ml (FLORAL) - which has top notes of bergamot, lychee accord, rhubarb accord and nutmeg with a heart of Turkish rose, petalia, vanilla and musk. With base notes of Hatian Orpur vetiver, cedar, frankincense and cashmeran.

Yardley London Royal Pink Diamond EdT 1ml (FLORAL) - this is also one of my favourites. It has top notes of mandarin, pear, peach and cassis with a heart of pink pepper, peony, rose and orange flower water with base notes of sandalwood, cedarwood and musk. It's a really pretty floral and one I'd buy full size. It's made with 90% naturally derived ingredients with a vegetable derived alcohol base.

MontBlanc Lady Emblem Elixir EdP 2ml (FLORAL) - with top notes of litchi and mandarin, a heart of Damask rose absolute, jasmine and orange blossom with base notes of patchouli, sandalwood, black pepper and vanilla.

Abercrombie & Fitch First Instinct for Women EdP 2ml (FLORAL) - which has top notes of magnolia, grapefruit and passionfruit with a heart of orange flower, butterfly orchid and water lily with a base of amber, tonka bean and musk.

I'm looking forward to testing them all out - I do have initial favourites which I loved from first try.

There are 3 larger samples too in the box:

From Miller Harris there is a duo (2 x 7.5ml EdP) which I already love having first tried them via sample vials - Lumiere Doree (CITRUS) which is a delightfully fresh blossomy scent. It has top notes of bergamot, petitgrain and orange with a heart of neroli, and Sambac jasmine absolue with base notes of cashmere woods, vetiver, amber and white musk.  

The second (also much loved) perfume in the duo is Etui Noir (LEATHER) which has top notes of bergamot, tangerine and elemi gum with a heart of Moroccan iris butter, incense and cashmere woods with base notes of Indonesian patchouli, Haitian vetiver, leather, amber, birch and labdanum. Really pleased that these two are included in the box (and nice to now have them in my collection.)

Also in the box is a 10ml perfume from E Coudray which hasn't yet launched. Rose Tubereuse (FLORIENTAL) which has top notes of bergamot, tangerine, clove, guava and rhubarb. With a heart of rose, tuberose, ylang ylang, geranium, jasmine and orange blossom and base notes of patchouli, sandalwood, tonka, vanilla, benzoin and musk. I do find this a bit heady and powdery for my liking but I'll make sure to try it a few times before passing it on (I do love their Ambre et Vanilla).

The extras:

10ml Weleda Lavender Body Oil and a scented sachet from The Very Nature which can be used in the car or wardrobe.

Did you pick up a box? What are your thoughts on the contents?
