Today I have a really exciting post for you; a new company for perfume lovers and an awesome giveaway!
I’d definitely describe myself as a perfume fanatic, I love perfume, I know what I like and what I don’t like, and I love trying out new scents. The only downside is that my perfume knowledge is very limited. I don’t understand the different notes, the base notes, the top notes, and the, erm other notes?? and I don’t really understand what the technical terms mean. This is where The Perfume Society comes in. This is just the company I’ve been looking for…
So you love perfume – or you’re simply fascinated by the sense of smell. Welcome to The Perfume Society: a website featuring everything you ever wanted to know about fragrance, the art of perfumery and more – plus a community that you can actually join to enjoy events, ‘discovery boxes’, our online perfume magazine – and much, much more…
Get together with other fragrance-lovers. Meet the perfume world’s most talented creators. Be first to know about – and try – new launches. We know that once you really start to explore this extraordinary world, it’s a bit like stepping through the wardrobe into Narnia. So be prepared to awaken your senses…
How amazing does this sound!? You can go to the Explore Perfume section of the site, to learn more about the history behind different perfume houses and which scents they offer, the ‘noses’ behind the perfumes and fragrance families. You can also learn about brand new fragrance launches, news and features.
One of my favourite sections of the site has to be FR.eD. FR.eD is your virtual fragrance advisor, wether you’re looking for a new perfume for yourself or as a gift, just type in your favourite perfume and FR.ed will offer you suggestions of six similar fragrances to whet your appetite.
As well as all of this, you can subscribe to the site to become a perfume VIP. As a VIP you can expect to receive invitations to ticketed events with leading ‘noses’ and key figures from the perfume world, in-store events and workshops. You also receive a perfume discovery fragrance education box, including sample perfumes, fragrance note postcards explaining the included scents, and other handy goodies including a note book, sample tester strips and a subscription card. As part of the VIP subscription you also receive a complementary workshop event, and eight copies of The Scented Letter e-magazine.
I’ve started trying out my perfume testers and reading the handy postcards so I can learn about and understand the fragrance notes, it really is interesting! The lovely guys at The Perfume Society have also given me a subscription to give away to one of you lucky lot! And you’ll receive a discovery box just like mine below!
So if you think this all sounds pretty awesome and you’d like to win a subscription to The Perfume Society and your very own discovery box, all you need to do is enter via the rafflecopter widget below!
The giveaway will run for two weeks and is open to UK residents only I’m afraid due to shipping restrictions. If you have any questions please feel free to get in touch and good luck!
