Escentual Perfume Blind Trial Discovery Set

Learn more about our Perfume Blind Trial in this blog post

Join the world’s biggest and most exclusive Perfume Blind Trial this July and discover the best solar scents in time for summer.

Our blind trial is the perfect way to try before you buy and experience something different. Fun and interactive, you get to test and explore eight sample-sized scents, and the cost is fully redeemable in Pretty Pennies - meaning you get £19.95 off the total off your favourite fragrance in the box (or whatever you fancy on-site).


Why you’ll love our Blind Trial:

  • Buy one box = £19.95 worth of Pretty Pennies!
  • You get to try perfumes before you buy.
  • You’ll be a part of our #EscentualScents community.
  • You’ll learn more about fragrances you may have never tried.
  • You won't be swayed by marketing or brand influence.
  • You could win your favourite fragrance.
  • It’s a fun activity to do with friends and family!


July’s Theme: Solar Fragrances

We’ve handpicked the most exciting fragrances that borrow from other families (citrus, floral, woods) to create the idea of the sun. Expect designer, mainstream and niche choices for all genders and price points!


Pre-Order Your Box For Delivery From Friday 9th July:

Click 'Add to Shopping Bag' to reserve your perfume trial kit. Ignore the out of stock message at the checkout; we will ship discovery sets on Wednesday, 7th July. We stop selling the Solar box on Monday 5th July - so everyone gets as much time as possible to start exploring each scent.


We collaboratively test the scents on Facebook. Each test starts on the second and fourth Monday of each month.

  1. We will reveal fragrances A, B, C and D on Thursday 15th July at 8pm.
  2. We will reveal fragrances E, F, G and H on Thursday 29th July at 8pm.


What’s In The Box?

  • 8 x 2ml mystery solar fragrance samples.
  • Your invitation to our #EscentualScents Facebook group.
  • Your discovery card to annotate and explore the fragrances.



1. Why does this box show as out of stock?

Our Perfume Blind Trials take place monthly, and as such, customers can pre-order boxes a month in advance. If you see the message 'out of stock' at checkout, don't worry, you can still checkout; this means your box will dispatch at the beginning of the following month in time for the month-long trial.


2. Why does it give me a lead time for delivery and not ship straight away?

The box is a monthly experience, so every #EscentualScents member receives their box on the same day - so no one misses out.


3. What is a Perfume Blind Trial?

It's a virtual experience for novices, experts and anyone looking to try something new. Together on Facebook, we will go through eight mystery fragrances marked A-H; testing your noses, having fun with perfume, and learning new things. Your exclusive invite to our #EscentualScents Facebook group will be inside your box upon delivery.


4. Can I take part without a Facebook account?

You will need a Facebook account to access the lives, learning and our community. However, we will email the names of the scents after the corresponding Facebook lives.


5. What happens when I receive my Discovery Set? 

Now the fun starts! When you order a box, you’ll be invited into an exclusive #EscentualScents Facebook group. The #EscentualScents Facebook group is a hub for fragrance fans! As well as bi-weekly live videos revealing each mystery fragrance, we’ll share exclusive content and competitions.


6. When do we find out what's in the box?

Every month we will reveal each of the fragrance names live on Facebook at 8pm with The Candy Perfume Boy. We will reveal fragrances A-D every second Thursday of the month; we will reveal E-H every fourth Thursday.


7. How did you choose the fragrances?

We know how difficult it is to test and buy perfume right now, so we wanted to allow our community to discover the best new fragrances available. We worked with our Fragrance Expert, Thomas, aka The Candy Perfume Boy, to hand-pick a vast range of niche, designer and luxury scents that all have one thing in common; they’re the most exciting launches we’ve seen at Escentual this year so far.


8. Can I use my Pretty Pennies to buy a box?

You cannot use pretty Pennies against Sample Sets (Try Before You Buy Sets) or delivery charges.

Escentual Perfume Blind Trial (Pre-Order) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant perfume trial This is an excellent way to really sample perfumes, a good range with some very expensive ones. I like smelling them with no idea of the perfume house so no pre conceived ideas. The big reveal is good fun too, interesting to see other thoughts on the perfumes. Would definitely recommend if you love perfume.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from brilliant interactive sniffing experience! This is such a fun idea and the most enjoyable thing I’ve done for myself during lockdown. Having eight fragrances to explore with the expert help of Thomas has been an absolute joy. Making new online friends through the Facebook group has been a lot of fun too. I will be disappointed if I miss out on any future boxes; I’d happily sign up for an ongoing subscription.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality fragrance sampling Am hooked on these now. Superb themed collection of quality fragrances which you blind test in the run up to a grand reveal. So different from in-store testing, much better and more enjoyable. Dedicated Facebook group is great - inclusive, friendly and very informative. I'm finding out so much about the type of perfumes I like, and how they are described by the experts, it's opened my mind to scents I've previously dismissed as the wrong "type" for me. It's a lovely little treat!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Such a fun and interactive experience #escentualscents is such a fun & interactive experience. I'm loving it & have already ordered next month's floral box. You get a box of 8 vials of perfume sent to you and the only info you have is the style of fragrance. It's so interesting to test fragrances without any preconceptions regarding brand, packaging, notes of fragrances ect. You get to really appreciate the fragrance for what it is. There is also access to a private Facebook page where you can discuss your thoughts on each fragrance with everyone else who has purchased a box. Twice a month there is a live where the amazing Thomas reveals each fragrance, it feels like a night out which is much appreciated during lockdown. Highly recommended and it's basically free because you get the money back in pretty pennies to spend on the website when the box is dispatched. Such a fun and engaging experience and I am learning so much. Highly recommended. Well done Escentual.
