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).
DEAL: Get your second month free when you use this link!
Citrine is a love poem to the gorgeous light of summer. Lemon blossoms brightly bloom into a heart of luscious, round freesia and dewy lotus, with a drydown of relaxing woods. Wear it with your favorite sundress, then fill a pitcher with fresh, ice-cold lemonade, and let the summer sun warm both your skin and your spirit.
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 chose 1969 Parfum de Revolte by Histoires de Parfums ($105 for a 2 ounce bottle). This is a unisex oriental spicy fragrance, although the notes showed peaches and chocolate, which I am having a hard time detecting. I do pick up a lot of warm spices, patchouli and cardamom. Only lasts until lunchtime, and then I must really sniff my arm, which looks weird. It reminded me of Decadence by Marc Jacobs, and I’m saving this to wear next fall.
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. I should have paid more attention to this handy guide, which shows this scent to be spicy and woody but not so much fruity. That peach really threw me for a loop, I can’t detect it at all! The value this month was about $14.16, which is about the same as 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!
