Oooh, I was thrilled to receive this genius little Jet Set Perfume Discovery Box from The Perfume Society recently. Launched this month, it is ideal for globe trotters who like to travel light. The little box of goodies contains a selection of hand-picked, travel-friendly-size fragrances all with a jet set theme.
My highlights are the layer able (and substantially sized) Salt Air and Piña Colada from The Library of Fragrance. Also gorgeous are Creed’s Virgin Island Water (inspired by the unspoilt beauty of the British Virgin Islands), Thierry Mugler Angel Sucrée for a warm sugary blast of summer and L’Artisan Parfumer Rose Privée with its extraordinary hit of May rose.
The ‘must have’ collection continues with the joyful and mischievous Paco Rabanne Lady Million Eau My Gold!, the radiantly feminine Elie Saab Le Parfum and Shay and Blue Blood Oranges, with its burst of fresh blood orange to transport you to the Southern Italian coast. Finally the seductive Versace Eros Pour Femme, is named after the Greek God of romantic love.
Because they are mini or sample size, it means you can take a selection of different fragrances away with you to suit different moods and occasions, and still not be weighed down with heavy perfume bottles. When you get home, the scents you love will remind you of your happy holiday place, every time you wear them.
Continuing the travel theme, the box also includes a generously sized Ultra Sun Face High SPF 30 Anti-Ageing Formula protective cream to offer the best protection against UV damage. A travel must have!
The Perfume Society, which was founded by Lorna McKay and Jo Fairley, has also put together a Jet Set playlist on Spotify with songs inspired by the scents and the most exotic of locations. Click here to access a soundtrack to this summer’s travels.
The box is available for a limited period only.vailable to VIP Subscribers at the special price of £10 – and to non-subscribers for £15. perfumesociety.org
