Scent Trunk is a scent discovery subscription. Formerly just for men, they’ve expanded to women’s fragrances as well. Every month you’ll receive 3 niche scents to experience, try out, and enjoy! Fill out a brief profile on their site and you’ll receive a customized box of fragrances. They have a beautiful new website as well.
The three fragrances come in an organza bag inside a little box. You’ll get 6mL of each fragrance.
There are 3 information cards in the box – one for each fragrance, and you can spray them with the scents and make your own little card catalog. The cards have information on each scent, the longevity, and the sillage, which describes how far the perfume ingredients disperse (are you just smelling it or is everyone smelling it?), and ouch! The price! You get to sample extremely expensive fragrances in this one.
Each of the sprayers has a cap and a label to identify the fragrance. There was a bit of leakage from the a perfume onto the second, but it didn’t appear to me that I lost any perfume, it may have been while packaging.
Alahine by Teo Cabanel: With notes of Bergamot, ylang-ylang, jasmine, Moroccan rose, iris, cistus, patchouli, benjoin, vanilla, sandalwood, musk, this was a straight up oriental fragrance for me, but well balanced and not overpowering at all.
The Perfumed Water #2 by EviDenS de Beauté: This is labeled as an oriental floral, but it was fresh and sweet to me, and quite orangey. Top notes are bergamot, orange, mandarin and black currant; middle notes are orange blossom, Angelica, pink pepper and violet leaves; base notes are vetiver, amber, incense, tonka bean and vanilla.
Une Ile, Un Rêve by NANA.M: The name of this scent is “An Island, A Dream” in French and is inspired by a small Mediterranean island off the coast of Cannes. It features rosemary, eucalyptus, ylang-ylang, tuberose, vanilla, and patchouli, and I don’t think I’ve ever smelled anything like it before or ever had a fragrance with eucalyptus and rosemary. This would be a great scent to remind you of a favorite vacation.
This was a great box with two truly unusual scents to sample. I found the first to be pretty standard but the next two were extremely unique. Despite the capitalization (which I just can’t get behind) the EviDenS de Beauté was my favorite!
