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.

This energizing fresh yet sophisticated scent is a gender-neutral blend of bright, green notes and bracing citrus. Precious woods and amber hues support the composition’s citrus signature while Amyris Oil for the Dominician Republic impart a creamy, final effect.
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 Comptoir Sud Pacifique Coco Figue. I wanted something tropical and coconutty to take on vacation and this didn’t disappoint! I couldn’t detect any fig but the coconut can’t be missed. This scent is classified as an Oriental Vanilla and although it lists other notes such as vanilla and woods it really just smells like a piña colada, without the pineapple. A coconut smoothie perhaps. It isn’t overly strong and the longevity was decent and I am pleased with its simplicity. This turned out to be exactly what I wanted!
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 fruity and aquatic. I would say it has a tropical vibe but it doesn’t cross over into sunscreen territory. It also says this is perfect for summer and vacation, too. The value this month was about $9.60. I know I will get a lot of use from this one over the next month and I love how convenient it is to take on vacation, rather than hauling a larger bottle.
I like to wear a different fragrance daily and Scentbird lets me play the field rather than make a long-term commitment and to me, that’s a great deal!
