For the month of August we’re showcasing the incredible (multi-award-winning!) talents of natural perfumer, Marina Barcenilla.
VIP Club Members can enjoy a generous 20% Discount on any 30ml fragrance from the Marina Barcenilla Parfums range when they buy online. Just make sure you use the code PERFUMEVIP at the checkout!
Explains Marina: ‘All my creations are inspired by personal experiences that I love to share – so all of the fragrances are accompanied by short stories that describe the inspiration behind them. I hope that these stories will help you to discover the soul of my perfumes – and that they speak to you in the same way that they speak to me.’
With all the awards, plus an ever-growing number of fragrant fans, they’re definitely speaking to us! Marina sources rare and precious aromatic essences from around the world, expertly blending fragrances by hand in her own perfume studio in Glastonbury.

We were thrilled to hear that Ruth Mastenbroek‘s Firedance perfume has been selected as a finalist for this year’s prestigious Fragrance Foundation Awards. And Ruth very kindly popped in to sign a full-size bottle of Firedance for one of our lucky V.I.P’s to win!
Scroll down for the entry form, below – closing date is 31st May 2018…
‘A story of celebration… rejoicing in each moment of contentment in life. In Firedance, Ruth presents a scorching, modern interpretation of the classic rose perfume, as exotic leather dances in surprise harmony with the main character – smouldering Damask rose. Set against a warming backdrop of oudh and patchouli, a shining amber note radiates from the skin in this memorably intimate and sexy perfume.’
Do not be scared of that ‘oudh’ word, either – this is a stunningly sophisticated interpretation, and no wonder it’s up for an award. We know you’ll adore it.
Terms & Conditions: No cash alternative to the prizes will be offered. The prizes are not transferable. Prizes are subject to availability and we reserve the right to substitute any prize with another of equivalent value without giving notice. Closing date for entry will be 31/05/2018. After this date no further entries to the prize draw will be accepted.
Dedicated fragrance blogger I Scent You a Day set herself the challenge of wearing a different perfume every single day of the year, without bankrupting herself by buying 365 differing bottles of scent! One of the ways she’s been able to follow this perfumed pilgramage, and write about it so entertainingly, is by regularly purchasing our Discovery Boxes of fragrance minis and samples – many of which are impossible to find elsewhere, and have led to a love for rising-stars of the niche world along with classics of the genre and even pre-launch sneak-previews.
We were absolutely thrilled to hear that in her round-up of ‘the very best of scents’ for 2016 – a.k.a The Iscents – The Perfume Society were honoured with a Fellowship Award!
Indeed, the Fellowship Award was specifically invented for us, because we ‘[defy] other categopries.’
As explained in the post describing the award categories and why the winners were chosen, ‘Not only do they provide white boxes of treasure that even the most jaded perfume palate would salivate at, but they’re a sort of Mothership that we can all turn to when we get a bit lost in the murky depths of fruity-florals-chypres-colognes-my-nose-is-confused-help! Ever had a day like that? I have. The Perfume Society Scented Letter magazine also makes me settle down with a contented sigh and think “I’ve found my tribe” as I read what other perfume obsessives are up to. Fumeheads, you are not alone.’ Blushingly, we gratefully accept this award, and are so glad to have played a significant part in I Scent You a Day’s continuing fragrant journey… and hopefully, in yours!

At The Perfume Society we’re all about helping people discover and explore the fascinating and ever-changing world of fragrance. And for Christmas this year we’ve created the ultimate perfume starter pack to choose for anyone interested in all things that smell fabulous, no matter their age or level of scent knowledge…!

Featuring a wide range of incredible fragrances chosen by us, each box is themed and features beautifully written postcards describing the perfumes individually, with information about the history of the house, the perfumer’s inspirations and questions inviting them to think more deeply about their experience of what they’re smelling. An intriguing exploration, indeed… 1. Begin by personally choosing one of the carefully curated Discovery Boxes from this beguiling list:

Co-written by The Perfume Society‘s Founders, Jo Fairley and Lorna McKay, and based on their combined (countless!) years of experience in the industry, this wonderful book is a must-read for every fragrance lover. An encyclopaedia of all things fragrant – from how to build a perfume ‘wardrobe’, to a line-up of the simply-must-sniff ‘100 perfumes to try before you die’ – the wealth of knowledge combined with stunning photographs makes for a truly incredible tome they’ll love having their noses buried in.
For VIP Subscribers the ultra-special price for the ‘Explore Perfume’ Gift Package is £30 – be sure to log in to receive your exclusive price!
For non-subscribers, the price is £35, but both options come with FREE POSTAGE AND PACKAGING. Hurrah! (Alas we can’t ship to Ireland or overseas, because of ‘hazardous materials’ restrictions.)
