Birchbox Scent Sampler Elegant Essentials


(Source: Blueridge Beauty Blogger)

The beauty of getting a Scent Sampler from Birchbox is to discover the scent by experiencing them in your home and use the special $30 discount towards the fragrance in their Elegant Essentials collection!! Except for one fragrance brand, I enjoyed each of these fragrances!! Let's begin my fragrance journey!

The card helped described the fragrances that I have received in which I made my personal notes after I smelled each one below!

Raw Spirit Fragrances in "Desert Blush" is a "sophisticated floral scent with notes of Australian boronia, ylang ylang, and sandalwood" which is perfect for wearing for the nighttime esp date or dance!!

L'artisan parfumeur in "La Chasse Aux Papillions" is a "playful bouquet of white flowers and bright citrus that evokes lazy summers in the sun" which is great for afternoon into evening events!

Comptoir Sud Pacifique in " Vanille Abricot"  is described as "kicking off with fresh apricot and tropical papaya, this velvety scent deepens into notes of sugar candy and vanilla."  I am very picky to certain sweet scents and vanilla fragrance, so I am surprised that I liked this fragrance!

I love this fragrance which I have sampled before in several Birchboxes! Joie in "Folle De Joie" is inspired by sunny California and romantic Paris, this fresh scent mixes mandarin, rose, and sandalwood." I would wear this for any daytime event, office, or when I am feeling romantic!

I love Tocca fragrance which this one is "Isabel" which has notes of "rose, orange, and amber, this chic and captivating fragrance draws you in immediately." So true, as I will use it during the daytime, in the office, or any daytime event!

Clean in "Warm Cotton" is a "crisp fragrance mixes floral, fruit, and marine essences with a hint of musk." This fragrance smells like a refreshing soap or detergent scent on clothes from the laundry!! I will consider this after the shower from working out or perfect day time scent!


 Sadly, I have tried a sampler of previous Juliette has a Gun which I totally depised its scent which is too strong or too different, or both!! Once again, this version of Juliette has a Gun in "Anyway" was the wrong way in most notes that I usually love (citrus, woods, and musk)!!

I am either very happy or pleasantly surprised by the fragrances in this Elegant Essential except for Juliette. But fragrances is an individual experiences for the wearer for whatever the reason or season!  I will let you know which fragrance I chose soon!

Until next time...

  2. That joie perfume sounds dreamy. California and Paris are two of my favorite places in the world. I'll have to try this sample out.

  3. I haven't even heard of some of these brands!! This is such a great way to figure out what scents you like without paying the big bucks. Nothing is worse than spending money on something you will never use!

  4. I want to try Juliette has a gun, but you are making me nervous. I know it is an individual thing, but it still makes me nervous. You have amazing luck with subscription boxes.

    1. Well,Tee, try it thorough the sampler and I did mentioned that it is unique and modern which I think is why they have a following! I got guess I love how classic or romantic or clean smelling fragrances are but fragrance is personal experience...know two people are going to experience the same body chemistry, smell, or distinction!

  6. Fragrance samplers are such a good idea before buying perfumes, you get a taster for a lot of different perfumes before hand. Great post xx

    1. Thank you, Jasmine! That is one of the reasons I love fragrance samplers and some scents are layered or time released through the day or evening!
