I found a card in my shipping bag.
The back of the card showed how to use the case, reminded me to review my fragrance and add fragrances to my calendar, and told me how to share photos on social media.
I also found a velvet bag to carry my sprayer around so it won’t get scratched!
I received two fragrances this month! You can sign up to receive two fragrances every month or purchase an extra scent when you want to as an add on.
Each fragrance came with a new case.
Mancera Soleil D’Italie Eau De Parfum ($20 subscription price, $180 for 120ml) is a floral woody musk with notes of bergamot, musk, rose, and vetiver. It is a unisex scent and from a new-to-me brand.
Despite the citrus burst, I don’t think I would save this for a summer day, I think it is strong and better suited for the changing seasons. It is fresh without smelling like soap. I think it has some floral notes but they aren’t the main attraction. While vetiver is usually quite prominent on my skin, I just can’t smell it here. There are some woodsy notes that I can’t quite place that are providing the warmth I am detecting. The longevity on my skin was decent and lasted until about midday, although it lasted forever on my clothes. Projection was also average, and I felt comfortable wearing this scent to work.
Mancera Instant Crush Eau De Parfum ($20 subscription price, $95 for 60ml) Instant Crush is a unisex oriental floral scent. Instant Crush is right – I fell for this scent immediately!
Scent notes include citrus, rose, amber, vanilla, and white musk. I think it smells like fruit (including pineapple, at least on my skin!) that is just about to ferment, so it is rich, heavy, and sweet but not cloying. It is warm and that rose note is deep and sensual. There is some musk, but the base note on my body is ambroxan. It is sexy, mature, and perfect for date night. Longevity and projection are both amazing, and I can’t keep from sniffing my arm all day long, I am in love!
I was totally entranced with my new scents from Luxury Scent Box! I let LUXSB choose my scents for me and I am always pleased, plus they send some amazing niche brands that I never would have discovered on my own. I was excited to try two scents from Mancera, I know I would love to try some of their other fragrances based on how much I enjoyed the two I tried this month. They were both so different from each other and fit my different moods, whether I wanted a sexy fragrance or a comforting one.
