My sample perfume box arrived today! and I love it. For only £4.95 posted, I think that this was quite a bargain. It's not a monthly subscription, it's just a one off that I knew I had to have.
I know that samples are free, but one of the items in the box is actually an item that is sold at SpaceNK for £18. Plus I never tried any of their perfumes, so this is was the cheapest way for me to try it.
So onto the reveal....
The box contents were:
L'Occitane Pivoine Flora
Liz Earle Botanical Essence No 1
Yardley Royal English Daisy
The two that interested me the most was obviously SpaceNK and L'occitane
The generous sample size was alluring.
Laughter is just a bit too citrusy/house lemon cleaner smell. I love citrus fragrances, but there is just something about this that seems one dimensional and flat. I swear I had an air freshener once that smelled like this.
But the L'occitane fragrance is so lovely. It's light and floral, and I may even buy the full size bottle one day. It's really delicate, soft, and clean floral scent.
Now out of these small spray samples, I thought I wouldn't like any of them.
They just don't seem to fit the demographics for me; however, the Yardley is actually quite nice. If you want a simple fresh and floral scent, this is a cheap alternative.
The Elie Saab perfume was a big shocker too. I actually hated the top note, but after 5 minutes on my skin, I really liked how the sweetness arose. This is actually a good perfume that shifts very fast once you spray it on you.
The Liz Earle perfume is just a little too "green" scented for me. Once again, I feel like I've had an air freshener that smelled like this too.
Perfume taste is so subjective, so I don't want to go on and on about it, since perfumes smell different to everyone, but this post is to show you just what a wonderful deal that I got from Latest in Beauty.
