Love is in the air, and it sure smells good!


As we enter the final stretch to Valentines Day, there is so much to choose from for that special person that it almost puts you off making your purchase decision. Talk about sensory overload! Well, love is most definitely in the air and man does it smell good with the Red Square Fragrance Sampler for Men.


I received my Fragrance Sampler & Gift Certificate from the good folks at Red Square. It has been a pure delight to sample the range; some new fragrances and a few old friends I haven’t indulged for a while. The sheer choice in the set will cater to just about any fragrance palette and offers a great opportunity to experiment with new top notes you would not normally contemplate.

So how does it work?

It’s really simple. Purchase the Fragrance Sampler & Gift Certificate Set from Red Square for R990, which comes in this nifty toiletry bag, and inside are eight sample size fragrances. Then, try each of the fragrances (I have been using a different one each day over the last week or so) and decide which one you would like to own the full version of. Now just redeem your voucher, contained in the set, at your local Red Square store and its a done deal.


Fragrance collection boosted!


So what’s inside?

The set is a sensory journey that will both woo and wow you. What will it be for you? Let me lay the options down for you: from the sophisticated, sensual Oriental indulgence of Bvlgari Man In Black; the nutmeg, wood and pepper notes of Carolina Herrera 212 VIP Men; the modern refinement that is Giorgio Armani’s Armani Code; the green orange blossom and apple that denotes Hugo Boss’s Boss Bottled Intense; to an iconic fragrance that has stood the test of time in Issey Miyake L’Eau D’Issey Pour Homme (see my Scent:Sation post on Nuit D’Issey); or a legend redefined in Jean Paul Gaultier’s Ultra Male, a fragrances that aches with pleasure; perhaps the warm and sensually masculine Eau De LaCoste’s L.12.12 Noir or perchance a sensual scent that sets a modern vision of virility in Paco Rabanne’s Invictus.


I think the Red Square Fragrance Sampler is the perfect gift for Valentines Day. Happy Valentines to me indeed!


But it doesn’t end there. Included with your fragrance sampler set is a an additional voucher that gives you further discounts on purchases from Red Square. I am still undecided as to which fragrance I will be adding to my collection, the choice is not an easy one. But the Red Square Fragrance Sampler & Gift Card is a sure fire winner in my book. There is also a version of the Red Square Fragrance Sampler & Gift Card for the ladies. Both sets are available from Red Square stores nationwide as well as from Red Square online.


Happy Valentines shopping!

  1. I received a sampler set like this as a gift a few years ago (think it was from Foschini) and I L O V E D it. I discovered a few new perfumes through it which I would never have looked at otherwise, as well as my two ultimate favourites to this day. I so wish they can bring out a similar sampler pack for other stuff too, like maybe for skincare.
    Which one are you going to choose? 🙂
