Scentbird is a monthly perfume and fragrance decanting subscription. With Scentbird you get a thirty day supply of perfume every month – Scentbird takes authentic perfumes and decants them into travel sprayers. There are over 450 fragrances to chose from!

When you join you fill out a profile – including three of your favorite designer perfumes – then you make a wishlist of perfumes you’d like to try. You’ll get a new sprayer every month, plus your first month includes a case to hold whatever perfume you’re currently using! You can add extra cases to an existing subscription for $12.95. Members now receive a $15 credit each month against the purchase of a full-size bottle (note that this credit expires each month).

My mailer came with my fragrance and a card. The sprayer now comes in this neat cardboard tube (it was previously a box).

Scentbird’s Perfume Editors pick a new scent every month to feature. May’s is TOCCA’s Florence. June’s is Capri Vince Camuto:

An invigorating citrus blend washes over a floral bouquet of peach blossom and violet flower to reveal a rich mixture of musk and vanilla. Like a cool breeze off the Mediterranean Sea, Capri Vince Camuto will transport your senses. This floral fruity fragrance speaks to the serendipity of finding the place in the world where you are free to be your best self.

It really sounds dreamy and right up my scent alley but I just filled up my queue with all sorts of summery scents and must stay strong!

You can see all the previous Perfumes of the Month at the bottom of the Scent of the Month page. Note that if your wishlist is empty you’ll get the scent of the month. You can now get on demand scents, but if you’re a subscriber it’s less expensive to get a new one each month and there’s something to be said about giving yourself time to enjoy your new fragrance for a while.

 Your first month will include a little perfume vial case and velvet holder. Scentbird decants the perfume from the manufacturer’s bottle to a little glass vial that fits in the sprayer. The perfumes are 100% authentic and you’ll receive an 8ml sprayer. A card comes with the vial demonstrating its use. You just twist it to spray!

New subscribers receive a sleek black case but other colors are available for an additional cost.

I selected Eau de Cartier Zeste de Soleil by Cartier. Cartier makes me think of Marilyn Monroe in a pink dress surrounded by diamonds but this is more like Marilyn Monroe on vacation at the beach followed by a jaunt through a citrus grove.  “Bright, fruity notes of citrus create a fragrance that is as playful as it is exotic. Passion fruit, the new unmissable, emblematic fragrance ingredient sublimates the original Eau and evokes warm sands and tropical climes.” Yowza!

Scentbird also provides a quick visual guide to the perfumes. You can get even more details on the different vectors of the scent by mousing over each of the main areas. As you can see this was a very fruity, citrusy scent which is just what I wanted! It isn’t overpowering but it didn’t fade away very quickly either. The value this month is a little on the low side, about $7.77, but a full sized bottle is $95 so I feel that this is a steal!
