I’m always crushing on something scented or other. My nose knows no limits. Candy Crush is where I showcase the beautifully scented things I’m crushing on right now so you can hopefully develop a crush too.
I honestly could not imagine the perfume industry without The Perfume Society. They are a fantastic resource that not only seeks to celebrate perfume and those who love it, but also to educate consumers in the often secret and confusing world of fragrance. They do a phenomenal job and have a lot to offer, from their indulgently informative magazine The Scented Letter, to their frighteningly accurate fragrance recommendation tool FR.eD, not to mention their exciting events and the regular updates on their website. Phew, it’s a lot! The Perfume Society offers so much wonderful fragrance content: fact.
I’m just going to come right and say that I am hugely impressed with the many offerings of The Perfume Society. Having read the many issues of The Scented Letter, attended two marvellous events (Tea With Turin and An Evening with Le Galion), played with their innately intelligent fragrance finder FR.ed and now, having received one of their Discovery Boxes, I feel as if they are quickly becoming one of the best fragrance resources, not only on the web, but in real life too.
So what are these Discovery Boxes I speak of? Well, I’m glad you asked. Essentially, The Perfume Society offer a monthly themed box of perfume samples, including new launches and not-so-new favourites, along with tasting notes and a generous helping of blotters to boot. The idea is to give you a themed collection of fragrances to sniff in your own home at your own leisure, providing you with the tools to really sink your teeth, or should I say nostrils, into some intriguing samples. Without spoiling too much of this review in advance (I know this is a habit of mine), I’d say that they succeed!
