Everything in my box!
I found a black card…
…that reminded me that add-ons are $18 each and includes a case.
Another card showed how to open and close the cases and how to refill it with a different scent vial. Don’t forget to rate your fragrance and fill up your calendar with fragrances to try. You can also share your pictures on social media.
The back of the card thanked me for becoming a member. I want to note that if you love a fragrance you receive, you can purchase a full-sized bottle on the LUXSB site and receive a member discount.
A final card introduced one of the featured fragrance houses.
The back of that card listed the fragrances from that house that can be found on the LUXSB site.
Cases come in a velvet bag to keep them from getting scratched in a purse or backpack.
I received three scents this month and each one came in a box. Each bottle holds .3 ounces (9ml) of scent.
Cases come in a variety of colors!
Here I’ve shown one out of the case, one being placed in the case, and one with the nozzle exposed. Just twist to hide the nozzle.
I received three scents that are very different from each other.
Parfums De Marly Sedbury Eau De Parfum ($172.78 for 2.5 ounces) There are so many different scent notes for this chypre floral fragrance – tuberose, vanilla, iris, tangerine, and more! On me, this is just a creamy white floral with powdery nuances and I can’t pick up any of the deeper or citrusy notes at all. It lasts and lasts, it won’t stop! I can’t decide if this is better for winter or spring, and probably works well for both seasons.
Starry Nights Montale Eau De Parfum ($170 for 3.3 ounces) If you want a perfume that smells good even hours later then I would suggest Starry Nights! It’s an oriental floral with notes of apple, musk, amber, and roses. Plus patchouli. Sound like a lot going on? It is! It’s loud and sexy and a bit dirty. The apple isn’t fresh and crisp, it’s turned to cider and the rose isn’t like on a summer day, it’s mellow and relaxed. So there is some sweetness to it, but it’s not for a spring day. This is a heavy winter fragrance with some good longevity. I love it!
Vanille Extreme Comptoir Sud Pacifique Eau De Toilette ($42 for one ounce) It may be cooler weather now but I can smell like a tropical paradise thanks to Comptoir’s scents! Vanille Extreme is an oriental vanilla according to Fragrantica, but it is also a big, sweet gourmand to my nose. It has notes of vanilla, sugar, and milk, plus heliotrope. It reminds me of a less woodsy English Laundry Signature For Her. It smells like cupcakes and happiness, it’s warm and innocent. Longevity and projection are not very high though, but in the summer that would be a good thing so I’m stashing it away until then.
LUXSB is a great way to discover new scents or to pick up travel sizes of past favorites. They have an extensive collection and add more all the time. I am always impressed by the niche lines that they have and it is an inexpensive way to try those scents that may be harder to come by (and that tend to be pricey).
