Scenteor is Canada’s answer to fragrance subscriptions like Scentbird, where you are able to choose an atomizer’s worth of a fragrance to test and enjoy. As someone who loves perfume but hates commitment and can never finish a full bottle, I’ve been jonesing for a sub like this for ages. Scenteor has actually been around since the summer, but I only became aware of it recently.

Registration is painless, but I did run into some snags once it came time to choose my fragrances. The catalogue of over 250 fragrances loads a bit slowly, and there’s no fast way to quickly add fragrances to your queue from the main index; you have to click through each fragrance before you can like it (which sends it into your queue). Additionally, while I assumed it would be a first in first out system in regards to priority, it’s the exact opposite — your most recent like is your scent of the month. Hopefully in the future there will be a way to see what’s in your queue, in order, and shuffle around as needed.

First look! Your first month includes your atomizer and a velvet pouch to keep it in. Subsequent months will just include the refill.

The atomizer is sturdy and feels well made. I did have some issues getting the refill out of the case, but I have butterfingers so that’s likely why.

My perfume was BVLGARI Rose Essentielle. Not going to lie, I was expecting a Kate Spade perfume I had been dying to try so I was a bit confused and disappointed. Rose Essentielle is a perfume I like, but have already tried, so I wanted something new.

  • Top note: Ottoman Rose
  • Heart: Prelude Rose, Blackberry
  • Base note: Patchouli

Rose Essentielle is a lovely rose scent; it has a slightly soapy finish once it’s dried down but I think it smells clean and crisp and really like it.

Scenteor has some kinks to work out in its infancy, but it’s still exciting to see a subscription like this finally hit Canada, and I’m crossing my fingers that my queue is sorted so I get my Kate Spade fragrance next month for my next review!

    Did you ever get the perfume you wanted? I’ve never seen a review from someone who has gotten more than their initial selection and I wonder how frequently you are sent something you didn’t choose.

      Hi Joanne. The perfume I received my first month was in my queue (I picked it) however it wasn’t clear that the most recent addition to the queue is the fragrance you would be sent first. It basically went in reverse which I didn’t understand at the time. My other Scenteor reviews clarify this. Thanks for the comment!
