Vivabox: try, love,buy

Published November 13, 2014 by Bizzimummy

I think most people will be familiar with the opening of a gift on Christmas morning only to find its perfume or aftershave which you absolutely hate the smell of. You thank the sender and pretend you love it, but end up throwing it in a cupboard never to be seen again, or even give it someone else the year after. This has happened to me a fair few times and as I often send perfume and aftershave as gifts I am also beginning to wonder if my lovely relatives hate their scented gifts too.

Vivabox removes this problem. Viva box can be purchased from The Perfume Shop and comes in both a ladies perfume selection and a men's aftershave option.

 

Each Viva box contains 7 tester samples of fragrance. The fragrances are all popular well known high street names which have been carefully hand picked by Perfume shop experts. There is bound to be at least one that the recipient will like. The testers contain 1-2ml of fragrance each and a mixture of spray bottles and dip bottles (like a little stuck which dips into the fragrance)

The idea is to give the recipient something they actually want rather than something they may not use. If you receive one of these you can then test out all ten samples and see which one you like best. Just don't do what I did with mine and spray them all at the same time- I was sneezing non stop for about 20 minutes afterwards and smelt like a perfume factory! These are the samples in both boxes.

HUGO BOSS – BOSS BOTTLED EDT 50ml

PACO RABANNE – 1 MILLION EDT 50ml

PACO RABANNE – INVICTUS EDT 50ml

MONTBLANC – MONTBLANC LEGEND EDT 50ml

CAROLINA HERRERA – 212 VIP MEN EDT 50ml

PACO RABANNE – BLACK XS EDT 50ml

ISSEY MIYAKE – L’EAU D’ISSEY POUR HOMME EDT 75ml

 

Once the favourite one is chosen, a voucher can then be exchanged for a full size bottle of the favourite one. In my case I exchanged the voucher for a bottle of Viva la Juicy which is a full 30ml bottle. The included voucher is very easy to fill out. It's just a case of ticking which one you want and taking it to the nearest Perfume Shop.

 

As well as my full size bottle I still have 7 small testers to use too, which may also last me a few weeks. I liked all the fragrances in my box so it was a difficult decision on deciding which one to go for. Viva la Juicy is a lovely fruity fragrance and my second choice would have been the Hugo Boss one.
I have given all the male samples to Ryan. He is at that age where boys tend to neglect their hygiene and so I was hoping these would help him want to smell a little better and it seems to be doing the trick. I may just get him the full bottle as part of his Christmas gifts. .

 

Viva boxes cost £39.99 each and make a great unique gift. It means that whoever you buy for will be sure to get something they want. The price of the boxes includes the 7 samples, a voucher to buy a full size bottle and a handy guide about each fragrance.
