I signed up in time to get the Spring 2016 box which included;
Gucci Bamboo emanates the Gucci woman’s diverse sides: her femininity, confidence, savvy and strength. The fragrance represents her essence. A fragrance that is so true to her spirit, it’s tailor-made precisely for the Gucci woman.

The new Eau de Parfum is inspired in the first fragrance of the 7 Loewe family, created with seven ingredients, with incense in the top notes. Its bottom notes confer elegance and masculinity and an original leather note strengthens the Loewe character.

Modern, with a feminine and sweet taste. Delicate and elegant with a strong personality and a special charm. A wonderful floral bouquet of different tones of violet, amorous roses and sophisticated jasmine. The emblematic Loewe leather note completes this unique fragrance.

Prada Candy Kiss lingers on the skin like an addictive olfactory tune. An overdose of Musks, like a scent of white cotton wrapped up with voluptuous Orange Blossom and suave Vanilla.

So I've tried out all of the fragrances including the mens ones and I can now say,
Prada Candy Kiss is a lot more mature than I thought it would be, I was expecting something sweet and girly, but it is actually a grown up womans perfume.
I'm highly allergic to Dolce & Gobbana Dolce Rosa Excelsa, ten minutes after spraying it I started to itch all over, ten minutes after that again I started to cough, a lot. I promptly scrubbed it off and won't be wearing it again.
Guci Bamboo I wore once before knocking it onto the floor and smashing the glass vial to bits, it smelt lovely and now my hoover smells lovely too. I was gutted when it smashed because it is a lovely fragrance.
Loewe Aura Floral is okay, reminds me a bit of a Soap & Glory body spray, Glam-a-lot I think if I recall my body sprays correctly.
Loewe 7 Anonimo actually blew me away, it is a mans scent however I feel it is a unisex fragrance and it was utterly delicious. This might be the one I use my £5 back code on.
And Givenchy Gentlemen Only Parisian Break, smells sharp, clean, fresh with a musky backdrop. It was okay, not hideous, I did think stereotypical male fragrance when I first applied it though, so nothing new to wow with.
I think this is a great way to sample different perfumes without having to go round the shops with a spritz of perfume on a strip trying hard to remember which one it was. Or worse, if you're like me, after too many scents at once I get a terrible headache. This is a much easier way to trial them and find out what you like or dislike.
