Scent Box is a monthly fragrance subscription service for men and women that sends a .27 ounce/8 ml bottle of your choice from over 650 scents, including 80 premium choices. They offer both a Standard ($12.95 a month) or Luxury ($18.95 a month) option and you can fill up your queue or be surprised by the scent of the month.
My very first scent arrived in this “keepsake” box.
DEAL: Save 50% on your first box! Use coupon code SCENT50.
I lifted the lid (which had a hidden magnetic closure) to find a thank you card. The flip side had a code to save 20% off the price of a full-size bottle of fragrance.
My fragrance was nestled safely in a bed of foam padding, which kept it secure during shipping.
I removed the scent from the box and twisted the container and up popped the sprayer!
Just like a similar subscription, the scent can be removed from the container. The fragrance was not listed on the actual perfume, but it was on the holder, so I guess this means we get a new holder every month!
I received this box for review purposes and didn’t pick my scent but I received Armani Sì, a chypre floral with sweet fruity notes and an undertone of something powdery and a bit spicy. It didn’t have much longevity on me but that makes it perfectly wearable for work.
According to the site, this fragrance has notes of cassis, freesia, and patchouli and is modern and romantic.
One thing that I like about this site is that you can search for fragrances with a certain scent characteristic or by season, occasion, fragrance family, or personality. I couldn’t find a classic “search” feature, although you can search by brands.
It also let’s you search by notes, so if you’re looking for a coconutty scent for your summer fragrance, it will give you several suggestions. Since Scent Box offers both Standard and Luxury scents, the more expensive choices are shown with a “premium” notation.
I enjoyed my first Scent Box! I had fun looking through the brands and found several that were recently removed from a competitors site, such as Black Opium and Flowerbomb. The size was generous and my scent had a value of $19.20, which is just over the cost of the subscription. I love fragrances and I switch them up often, so this subscription is a handy way to feed my ever-changing perfume preferences!
