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.
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.
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.
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.
There’s also a card that gave a tip on what to wear on a spring wedding.
Another card also gave a preview on what to expect this April. It seems like the next fragrance is going to be F by Ferragamo Black.
For the month of March, I got Odin 12 Lacha. The scent is described as a deep maroon hue, leathery and bittersweet fragrance; a spicy blend of rare lacha saffron, warm nutmeg, black pepper, and carnation flower that burst into an earthy scent.
Top: Black Pepper, Lacha Saffron, Warm Nutmeg
Middle: Spicy Carnation, Suede Accord
Bottom: Bois De Santal, Musc, Patchouli Terreux
My Notes: The latest offering by Odin, this fragrance is spicy and leathery, with a strong woody undertone provided by sandalwood, musk and patchouli. Saffron, nutmeg, and carnation create an alluring overlay that transitions effortlessly to the smoky, musky base. This fragrance is rich and interesting, with both bright and very dark notes — best for fans of wood, musk, and spice.
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.
