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 choose from and Scentbird adds new ones every month!
When you join you fill out a profile – including three of your favorite designer perfumes – then you make a wish list 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).

A fresh oriental fragrance that showcases exceptional raw materials from around the globe. Mon Guerlain was expertly crafted with the same passion and expertise that has been emblematic of the House of Guerlain since 1828.
You can see all the previous Perfumes of the Month at the bottom of the Scent of the Month page. Note that if your wish list 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 a .27 oz sprayer. A card comes with the vial demonstrating its use. You just twist it to spray!
I went with the March scent-of-the-month, Maiaday by Raymond Matts ($200 for a 50ml bottle). This floral green scent is clean-smelling and has a touch of citrus and a lot of floral. I confused myself, thinking this smelled like lilac and/or lily-of-the-valley, then I found out that one of the notes, muguet, is a fancy name for LOTV. Linden blossom, another top note, is called “lime tree” in Europe but is not related to actual citrus trees, but it is the star here.
Scentbird 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. This shows the scent to be perfect for everyday and is office appropriate. It didn’t knock my socks off but it is a clean, inoffensive scent that is light enough for spring and summer. The value this month was about $32, which is double the subscription price! I like to wear a different fragrance daily so Scentbird lets me play the field rather than make a long-term commitment and to me, that’s a great deal!
