Escentual Perfume Blind Trial Discovery Set

Pre-order still available!

Join the world’s biggest, and most secretive Perfume Blind Trial this January to discover the freshest citrus fragrances ever created.

Our Perfume 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 of your favourite fragrance in the box (or whatever you fancy on site).

January’s theme: Citrus fragrances

The citrus fragrance family (sometimes referred to as the hesperides) consists of sharp fresh fruits, as oils extracted from their peels. There are natural and synthetic citrus materials, both of which are used in harmony to create vivid, naturalistic representations of fruit. Both bring freshness, creating vibrancy and impact on the first spray.

Why you’ll love our Blind Trial:

  • Buy one box and you'll get £19.95 worth of pretty pennies to spend on anything on site!
  • You’ll be part of our exclusive #EscentualScents community.
  • You’ll learn more about fragrances you may never have tried.
  • We host monthly competitions to win your favourite fragrance.

How does It work?

1. Reserve your January Discovery Set.
2. Patiently wait (we know it’s hard) for your parcel to arrive.
3. Join our members-only Facebook #EscentualScents group.
4. Chat and share your scent stories with our community.
5. Watch along with our live scent surprise reveals on 13/01/2021 and 27/01/2021 at 8pm.

What’s In the box?

  • 8 x 2ml mystery fragrance samples.
  • Your exclusive invitation to our #EscentualScents Facebook group.

Click Add to Shopping Bag to reserve your box before we stop sale on 03/01/2021. Our January perfume trial will be shipped to you for 07/01/2021 - ignore the out of stock messages, we ship everyone’s boxes at the same time so nobody misses out!

Don’t miss out:

We collaboratively test the scents weekly on Facebook. Each test starts on the second and fourth Monday of each month. We will reveal fragrances A, B, C and D on Thursday 13/01/2021 at 8pm. We will reveal fragrances E, F, G and H on Thursday 27/01/2021 at 8pm.



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.


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 will receive their box on the same day.


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.


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.


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 of the mystery fragrances, we’ll share exclusive content, and have guest hosts.


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 fragrances E-H every fourth Thursday of the month.

Escentual Perfume Blind Trial (Pre-Order) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from So much fun! It’s such a fun way to discover new scents, talk with like minded fragrance fanatics and every month take a hour out for yourself to join the live reveals. Each month I’m grateful to try so many gorgeous scents ones you wouldn’t usually be able to sample even in large department stores. I can’t wait to see what next year brings for escentual scents.

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!
