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 novel combination of incense, myrrh, and black pepper over confident woods.
We approached fragrance in the same way we approach all new collections – we started with classic components and built them out with qualities that are quintessentially rag & bone. The collection celebrates the individual; we wanted each scent to create a unique connection with its wearer.

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 Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Dreaming in Portifino ($47.99 for a 3.3 ounce bottle). This is a floral fruity fragrance with notes of lychee and osmanthus, neither of which I can recall ever smelling. It does, however, smell sweet and fruity with a slight beach vibe and is warm, but more like sun drenched and not fireside. I really like it, it’s perfect for summer, and it’s no longer carried by Scentbird.
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 floral and aquatic with a touch of citrus and fruit, and this is pretty spot on. The value this month was about $3.93, which is really low, but I would never wear a whole bottle of any fragrance so I’m not disappointed, plus I like this scent and will wear it often in the next few months. 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!
