The Perfume Society's The Scent of a Man Discovery Box


There are, we think, two good reasons to buy The Perfume Society’s latest Discovery Box – at least, there are two good reasons why Jo (our Jo) and Lorna McKay have launched The Scent of a Man, the very first in their series of perfume sampler boxes targeted at men. First, with Father’s Day coming, it’s a really rather fantastic – and different – present, showcasing no less than 13 fragrances and three grooming must-haves, including a terrific 15ml size of CEW Award-winning Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream for Men (worth £27.50 on its own) and a 100ml size of Elemis Ice Cool Shave Gel (worth £11).

Secondly, if you’ve bought any of The Perfume Society’s boxes which are targeted at women – well, it’s a way to assuage that shopping guilt, by giving this as a pressie to the chap in your life. (Or a brother. Or a son, come to that.)

The Scent of a Man Discovery Box is priced £19 plus £2.50 p&p, or just £15 plus the p&p if you’re a VIP Subscriber to The Perfume Society. (Find out more about that here.)

And here’s what’s inside (alongside those grooming extras, above):
