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! You can save when you purchase a multi-month subscription, or even arrange to receive perfume every other 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!
Scentbird has made a few changes. You can try up to 3 fragrances a month, in case you really need to build up your supply, or maybe you prefer one for day, another for evening, and another for your significant other. Scentbird also offers hand lotions, so you can place those in your queue if you have a backlog of scents to work through.
The rich fullness of tropical pineapple, supple melon, and smoky cassis announces an expansive, lush bouquet of rose, jasmine, violet, and orange blossom. The heady florals fade into sumptuous caramelized sugar, toasted vanilla, and silken amber. Oxford Bleu Femme’s powerhouse sensuality isn’t about to wait for the night to begin.
Oxford Bleu Femme was my choice last month so you can see what I thought about it here.
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 Citadelle by Raw Spirit Fragrances. This is a unisex Oriental woody scent and I chose it because I like vetiver and wanted something woody for fall, although I was also tempted by the citrus and pear notes. I sprayed it on and asked my husband what he thought. He said I smelled like a guy. There is no sweetness to temper the strong vetiver note, the pear is nowhere to be seen, or em, smelled. There is an underlying scent, I kid you not, of wet bandaids. This scent is strong at first but fades within a couple of hours. I might wear this when no one is home, since I don’t hate it, it’s just not what I want to wear in public.
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 woody scent, but if there is any floral to be had it’s from the rather acrid marigold. The value this month was around $24.30 if basing it on the ounce, however, a .25 ounce sprayer, which is smaller than the amount in a Scentbird vial, is $40.
The past couple of months my fragrances have been blind buys and sometimes I love the scent, sometimes it’s a miss. I did save in the fact that I didn’t pay $40 for a small bottle and I am always excited to try something new. 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!
