The Fragrance Shop Autumn Discovery Club
Autumn has arrived and that means I switch up my fragrances to more autumnal, woody and musky options but sometimes you want to try a new fragrance for the change in seasons but you don't want to pay the full price - The Fragrance Shop has the answer! Every quarter The Fragrance Shop releases a new Discovery Club box which contains a selection of the latest male and female fragrance samples as well as fantastic discount codes that can be used in-store or online for the fragrances featured in each box. 

I have *The Fragrance Shop Autumn 2015 Discovery Club Box (£5) which contains three male fragrance and three women's fragrance samples ranging in size from 1ml to 2ml each. The autumn box contains the following samples:

- Aura Magnetica EDP from Loewe: Sweet, powdery and floral. This fragrance would be perfect for work wear or evenings as it is quite a formal and sophisticated fragrance but it is still feminine although it is potentially 'old fashioned'. Not personally a fragrance I would buy but I think it will appeal most to an older generation.  

- Gentlemen Only Casual Chic by Givenchy EDT: Woody, Musky and Fruity. This mens fragrance is similar to a few that my dad wears often, he loved this sample and he said he'd buy it. The fragrance to me is very woody and musky but also fruity. The longevity seems to be quite poor on my dad anyway, although everyone is different so it may last longer. 

- Olympia by Paco Rabanne EDP: Rich, heady and sickly sweet. I'm personally not a fan of this fragrance as to me it smells like old fashioned hard boiled sweets mixed with musky notes. Although a few of my friends really love this perfume! I think it would be perfect for teens or the 20-30 age range although obviously if you like a certain fragrance then it doesn't matter at all about ages. 

- The Scent by Hugo Boss: Warm, Musky and Rich. Again, my dad loves this fragrance! It is warm and musky but it isn't very heady or overly strong, in my opinion. It has some sweetness but it is mainly a great masculine fragrance that I think most men will like. 

- James Bond 007 by Seven EDT: Light, fresh and musky. This fragrance is much lighter and fresher compared to the other two but it is still masculine and musky but in a subdued way. I think this would be great for the men in your life who don't like strong, rich or overly musky fragrances.

- Live Irresistible by Lancome EDP: Sweet, spicy and unusual. I don't think I've tried a fragrance like this before (which is very impressive as the fragrance market is usually very generic) but this perfume is so different and unusual! It has a candy sweetness but it is also slightly spicy. It is feminine with a twist - I don't think it is a fragrance you could buy as a 'safe' gift for someone as it is very unique but that is why fragrance discovery boxes like this one are so fantastic because you get to try a range of fragrances at a fraction of the cost and you may find a few that you love or wouldn't have tried before. 

Overall, I think the extremely inexpensive Discovery Club quarterly boxes are a fantastic way of trying a range of new fragrances as well as receiving very handy discount codes for each fragrance. I have already purchased the 007 fragrance for my dad as a christmas present using the code so I only paid £19.49 including delivery. Also I now know what to buy my dad in the future as he is always so difficult to buy for! I would definitely recommend The Fragrance Shop Discovery Boxes even though some won't be to your taste but you get a good range of samples. Additionally The Fragrance Shop donates money to Rays of Sunshine charity with every transaction. Overall rating: ★★, 5/5. 

The Fragrance Shop have some amazing sales and fragrances, some of the gift sets might be on my wish list to santa!
