The Story of Perfume box by Harvey Prince Organics: February 2016 & Promotion!

Today I’ve got something totally outside the box for me (pun intended): A perfume subscription! The wonderful folks from Harvey Prince Organics sent me their February The Story of Perfume box to review for you guys. They are also offering a special promotion for free mini perfume rollers (just pay for shipping). Jump down below for all the details.

Now the name Harvey Prince Organics might be familiar to some of you since they have popped up in a lot of Birchboxes. I’ve tried a few of their products and enjoyed them, so I was excited to see what their own box sub would have to offer.

Now first a little about what this sub includes:

To start 100% of their products are cruelty free, vegan & gluten free!

“Each monthly box comes with two private blend, luxe Harvey Prince perfumes available only in The Story of Perfume. These exclusive 7ml roller ball fragrances are made of only the finest essential oils & highest-quality natural ingredients.”

Fresh French Bergamot. Dewy Bulgarian Rose. Sensual Australian Sandalwood. Lush Italian Lemon. Sweet Japanese Sakura. Rich Assamese Oud. Spicy Kashmiri Saffron. These are just some of the notes our private blend fragrances in The Story of Perfume may contain!

Each box also has two samples from our best-selling bath, hair, & body lines. Ranging in size from 15ml to 30ml, you may receive our color-safe shampoo & conditioner, skin-softening body butter, or exfoliating shower gel, among other customer faves!

Lastly, The Story of Perfume contains two 2ml samples of our most popular luxury fragrances for women from our best-selling line of perfumes. From sweet to spicy, sensual to soothing, these perfumes will make you smell beautiful & feel happy!”

The cost of this sub is $22 a month, with a discount for purchasing a year’s subscription.

If you’re a regular reader you know I’m super sensitive to perfumes and super picky, so I’ll do my best to evaluate these on a larger scale and how I think they’d appeal to most folks.

I love love LOVE (did I say love) the style of their box. The packaging is so fairy tale appealing that it feels like a gift. They’ve already scored points with me and I haven’t even opened it up yet.
Package Box
Open Box Open Box 2

Sandalwood
Mysore Sandalwood
(7mL: $30.00)
Description: “…the scent of sweet cardamom, spicy cumin, soft clary sage, dewy rose, and soothing chamomile danced with deep cypress, clean musk, warm amber, and Mysore sandalwood notes”
Verdict: For folks that like musky, woodsy scents
I’m not a fan of musky scents and this one is a bit on the stronger side, but it’s not overpowering and I feel like it would appeal to ladies who don’t want something super sweet or floral. If you want to try this for yourself, you can get it home just for the cost of shipping. Add it to your cart and use the code EXOTICINDIA.

Kashmiri Saffron
Kashmiri Saffron
(7mL: $30.00)
Description: “Spicy!
Verdict: For the ladies that like unusual scents.
I couldn’t find this one on the website so I’m guessing it’s sold out, but I’m sure if you shoot Harvey Prince an email they will let you know if it becomes available again.  I thought this was a really unique scent and I think it will appeal to the folks that like to experiment with their beauty products.

Sincerely Body Cream
Sincerely Body Cream
(.05 oz 3.00)
Description: An intensely moisturizing and deeply nourishing blend of Shea butter and sweet almond oil, combined with extracts of French bergamot and South African freesia, Sincerely Body Cream brings out your body’s natural luster, giving you silky smooth skin all day long. Infused with Harvey Prince Sincerely perfume.”
Verdict: A sweet floral
This was a touch too floral for me personally, but I think a lot of ladies would really like this scent. I’ve tried Harvey Prince’s other body creams and found them to be quite moisturizing so I’m sure a lot of subscribers would dig this.

Eau Divine
Eau So Divine
(8.8ml: $23.00)
Description: Delicate Japanese lily, Intoxicating Moroccan Jasmine & sweet Iris softly release into the air. Warm Madagascar Vanilla, deep Indian Patchouli, Sensual Dry Woods & Clean Musk stir you with their aromatic intensity.
Verdict: Floral Musk
This is a floral musk that I think would appeal to ladies who like very feminine scents. Personally it’s not quite to my taste (I’m very anti-Patchouli) but I think this would appeal to folks that that have a bit of a bohemian sensibility.

Sincerely
Sincerely
(8.8ml: $23.00)
Description: Notes: Indonesian Clove Bud, Australian Sandalwood, Moroccan Rose, French Bergamot, Indian Tuberose, Japanese Orange Flower, Lebanese Cedarwood, Turkish Cyclamen, South African Freesia.”
Verdict: A sweet floral
This is the same scent as the lotion and I appreciate that we got two different types of items in the same scent so subscribers could layer them. As I mentioned earlier I think this is a solid scent that will appeal to a lot of women.

Keravegan
Keravegan Hair Masque
(1 oz: $3.00)
Description: Our 100% formaldehyde-free hair smoothing therapy. Transform your tresses with our nourishing and hydrating Keravegan hair masque. Made with the best organic Argan, Coconut and Sweet Almond oils + blended with Shea Butter, Papaya, Lemon and Mandarin extracts, Keravegan moisturizes and softens your hair, bringing out its natural brilliance from root to tip. Sulfate-Free + Paraben-Free.”
Verdict: My favorite item!
This is my favorite item in the box. The perfume on this product was noticeable but not overpowering and it didn’t’ stick with my hair endlessly like some over-scented hair products can do. It left my hair soft and not weighed down.

OVERALL
Harvey Prince March 2016
Verdict:
Hit!
The first thing I was impressed with (besides the gorgeous packaging) was that none of these scents had that strong synthetic give-me-a-headache-immediately issue. While a lot of the fragrances weren’t my taste, I could tell the perfumes were high quality. Each of the 7mL roller balls normally costs $30, so for $22.00 you two of them plus a wide variety of samples. I think that’s a great value. If you know someone who loves perfumes or is really into vegan/cruelty free/gluten free beauty this might be the sub for them.

SPECIAL PROMOTION!

Once upon a time, long, long ago, Lisa attended Syracuse University where she studied singing in a giant castle surrounded by ice and snow. After she earned her music degree, she headed to the island of Manhattan, down to the West Village, to a place called the New School. There, she earned another degree in the great art of writing stories for children. She currently works on that same island, in the dungeon of an old building, making up stories while she sorts through endless stacks of papers, just dreaming of working somewhere with windows. She is currently working on several novels and hopes to write her way to that aforementioned windowed place. Her first book, “The Ice Maiden’s Tale,” a fairy tale adventure was released on May 30, 2017 and is up for sale on Amazon. In the meantime, she keeps herself occupied by obsessing over subscription boxes and home renovations.

    • I’m not sure. I can’t seem to find any info about it on their website. Their customer service is quite responsive, I’d shoot them an email to ask.
