Debonair Scent is a monthly subscription box that brings designer and niche cologne brands right to your door. At only $15 per month, it’s a super-thrifty way to check out new fragrances to either build your collection or audition a new signature fragrance for yourself.
Each month, Debonair Scent sends three authentic colognes from international designers — they arrive in an attractive box and an info card detailing each scent.
The information card has details about the composition, scent notes, and recommend use of each fragrance. Particular attention is paid to noting the year in which each fragrance was introduced — I’m not clear why this is noted so prominently.
Each of the three selections comes in its own sprayer. The caps to the sprayers are a little delicate — they bend out of shape easily — but the sprayers worked well. Most importantly, the fragrances are genuine, rebottled fragrances from the designers, so they are of the highest quality. The April scents are Versace Eros, Azzaro Pour Homme, and Gucci Guilty Intense.
Gucci Guilty Intense: Mandarin orange and pink peppercorn open the fragrance, with the main body comprising lilac and powdery floral notes. A base of amber and patchouli provides a masculine, lasting finish — the floral notes subside a bit, leaving a more masculine sillage.
Versace Eros: Scents of mint and green apple develop shortly after application — the fragrance is actually extremely light when first applied. Tonka, vanilla and vetiver create a sweet, powdery base that that lingers once the zesty botanical notes have calmed.
Azzaro Pour Homme: Sandalwood and musk notes have great longevity, persisting after the bold and spicy head notes dissipate. Lavender and a powerful basil fragrance create an intense herbal leading note.
The box comes with a coupon to purchase your favorite from the shop!
Debonair Scent is a great sampler subscription for men who either love to rotate their scent, or those looking for a new scent to adopt. It provides real designer fragrances and saves you the upfront commitment to investing in a whole bottle. The scents are wearable and not too far outside the box, so its a save and economical way to explore the world of fragrance.
