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.

For the month of April, I got Burberry Brit for Men by Burberry.  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: Bergamot, cardamom, green mandarin and ginger

Middle: Cedar wood, nutmeg and wild rose

Bottom: Grey musk and Tonka

My Notes:  The early top notes were floral and spicy, sophisticated citrus, but a hint of warm musk also comes through early.  The fragrance transitions to powdery and dry wood essence — I read the cedar as sandalwood on first sampling, and the tonka peaks early, providing some shimmer.  The cedar and tonka linger, and what I thought was a bit of ambergris develops late.  This is a very sophisticated, with good balance of musk, powder, and spice in the final sillage.

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.
