Scentbird’s Perfume Editors pick a new scent every month to feature and usually I receive a card with that info but it was missing this month. September’s featured scent was La Perla La Mia Perla; October is Judith Leiber Amethyst:
Judith Leiber Amethyst is a sparkling, deliciously feminine, warm, floral fragrance. An intoxicating blend of freshness and sensuality, its unique and sultry composition of clever and clean top notes of boysenberry, bergamot and lychee wink at a floral heart of magnolia, muguet de mai, linden blossom and sheer gardenia. A background of musk, ambrox and creamy woods offer a dreamy dry down.
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!New subscribers receive a sleek black case but other colors are available for an additional cost.
This month I chose Oxford Bleu Pour Femme by English Laundry. I fell in love with English Laundry Signature for Her when I tried it in my Birchbox and the notes in this fragrance sounded perfect for me. It did start off sweet and juicy but quickly faded. Occasionally, but not with every wearing, I would catch a whiff of something that smelled like commercial bug spray, and not the citronella kind.
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. According to this chart this is a floral fruity scent but I didn’t pick up on any florals at all, just fruits and a touch of bug spray. The value this month was around $11.17. This scent is similar to the fruity sweet Escada and Salvatore Ferragamo scents.
Well, this month didn’t blow me away but at least I didn’t spend $90 on a full-sized bottle! Funnily enough, I walked by my husband and he thought I smelled great so go figure. If you like to try a different scent every month (or in my case, every day) then head on over to Scentbird and start filling up that queue. I’ve filled mine with several scents that sound perfect for fall so tune in next month!
