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).
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. See below for other options, such as a perfume, hand cream, and shower gel combo.

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 Burberry My Burberry Black. This is an oriental floral and I picked it based on one of those scent strips in a magazine or Ulta ad. Scentbird lists the main notes as rose, amber, jasmine, patchouli, and peach. It starts off sweet and a bit spicy, the rose is very sweet, like rose-scented cotton candy. It’s certainly juicy. The dry down has some powderiness to it. This smells familiar, like other designer fragrances, maybe Black Opium or Mon Paris, but spicier. Patchouli is a favorite of mine, but I can’t find it here, and I also can’t seem to pick up any white florals! I think this is too heavy for everyday wear, maybe for date night instead. It lasts a long time and it is pretty strong when you spray it on.
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 spicy scent, with woody and floral coming on strong. I can’t detect any woods in this at all, which would have made it better for me. In the end I think it is too musky and heavy. The value this month was around $19.44, while a .25 ounce rollerball is $29 at Sephora, which is a smaller size than the Scentbird sprayer.
I have had fun picking some new scents these past few months! Even though a few have been duds for me I did save in the fact that I didn’t pay for a full bottle and I am always excited to try something new. I have one of my all-time favorite scents in my queue for next month, although sometimes something new catches my eye and I update my queue frequently. 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!
