scentbird men feb 2016 bag

Scentbird For Men is a monthy cologne and eau de parfum subscription.  Each month, you get a thirty day supply of your chosen cologne, plus a new sprayer.  When you join you fill out a profile – including three of your favorite designer fragrances – then you make a wishlist of colognes you’d like to try.  Your first month includes a case to hold your current cologne sprayer.  You can add extra cases to an existing subscription for $12.95.

My mailer came with my fragrance and a card.

Scentbird’s Fragrance Editors pick a new scent every month to feature. The February scent is Boss Bottled Night and the March scent is Paco Rabanne One Million. If you’re unsure what to select for your next scent, this can serve as some inspiration.

This high-impact fragrance creates a multifaceted signature of masculinity. The freshness of grapefruit invites you into this audacious scent, combining in the top notes with mint and blood mandarin. Striking and assertive middle notes follow with a refined yet virile combination of rose, cinnamon, and spicy notes. The base notes evoke the ultimate velvety harmony of leather, white wood, amber and Indonesian patchouli essences. Once combined, the result is not merely one fragrance but an elegant, one-of-a kind intermingling of essences.

Your first month will include a little cologne vial case and velvet holder.  The case looks nice and is great for protecting your cologne when tossed in a gym bag or dopp kit.  You just twist it to spray.

A card comes with the vial demonstrating  use.  Unlike in the women’s subscription, the Men’s instructions do not leverage a lipstick case analogy to describe the function of the sprayer.

Scentbird decants the cologne from the manufacturer’s bottle to a little glass vial with a 8 ml sprayer.  The colognes are 100% authentic, but the repackaging and single-month portioning saves you a ton on the price over the full bottle.

For February I selected Valentino Uomo.  When filling out my profile, I had expressed a preference for woody notes, though I may shake things up a bit now that I’ve received a couple nice exemplars from the genre.  Uomo uses Cedar as its lasting tone and basal note.

Top notes: bergamot and myrtle, middle: roasted coffee and gianduja cream, base notes: cedar and precious leather.

A fragrance full of history. The idea was to create a fragrance that would be a classic of the future, aiming at men who strive for classics and like casual style. A profoundly Italian aromatic blend made of precisely chosen ingredients. Valentino Uomo is enveloped by the limpid elegance of zesty bergamot. Barely touched by myrtle, it opens with racy notes of coffee and the shimmering tones of gianduja cream. It is retained by an enveloping musky hint of white leather that reveals the majesty of cedar.

This fragrance opens up very warm and sweet.  It has a very floral and sweet quality for the half hour or so following application.  Over time, the coffee, chocolate, and leather notes really develop, and the overall intensity of the fragrance mellows.  Hazelnut and cedar remain pierce the chocolatey base, adding sunny, woody notes atop the richness.  It is a subtle and inviting fragrance, combing the elegance of cedar and white leather with the warm decadence of an Italian dessert service.

I like that I can queue up the fragrances that interest me, and I can preview the composition and profile of each to see if it matches my tastes.  Each bottle has a ton of fragrance, and they are the real deal from the best designers, so you can try their newer offerings or revisit popular classics. FYI – there is no gender divide with this subscription – ladies can add men’s fragrances and vice versa, and you can share if you’d like, or get a second subscription if you find it impossible.
