When you join you fill out a profile – including three of your favorite designer fragrances – then you make a wishlist of colognes you’d like to try. Your first month includes a metal tube sprayer case to hold your current cologne sprayer. You can add extra cases to an existing subscription for $12.95. For subsequent months, the cologne vial is packed in a cardboard tube.
DEAL: Get your second month free when you use this link!
Scentbird decants the cologne from the manufacturer’s bottle to a little glass vial with an 8 ml sprayer.The colognes are 100% authentic, and you save a lot of money because of the repackaging and single-month portioning. Simply put, this is cheaper than a full-size bottle, and a good way to try out cologne and find out what suits your taste.The pump spray vial can be used on its own, or you can insert it into a Scentbird metal case.
The reusable metal tube comes with your first month’s fragrance. The sleek case protects the vial, preventing breakage and accidental gym bag saturation. You just twist it to spray.
There is a teaser card included to give you a peek at next month’s featured cologne!
The back gives you more info about the featured scent next month. It describes the main notes of the fragrance – if you see your favorite component notes listed, it can be a great way to get ideas for your queue. It is just a suggestion – what you receive the next month is determined by your queue. This is so simple and straightforward. I love their system. For January 2018, the featured scent is (Malin+Goetz) Cannabis.
Once slipped into the case, the cologne (or eau de toilette, in this instance) is ready for travel in your Dopp kit, gym bag, briefcase, or overnight bag.
My December selection was Cambridge Knight by English Laundry.
Cambridge Knight is a warm and velvety scent, made to suit the sophisticated business man. It is crafted to envelope the wearer in aromatic excellence.
It is a warm and velvety scent with its top notes as grapefruit, lily and musk (sea notes). It is made to suit the worldly man with aromatic excellence, suitable for enjoying a stroll around European towns at night. Aside from its top notes, the mid note consists of: bayleaf, jasmine and guaiac wood, and for the bottom, oakmoss, patchouli and cedar wood.
English Laundry is absolutely my favorite fragrance brand and I was thrilled to add this scent to my personal fragrance wardrobe.
They always include a card that reminds you how to use your sprayers and set up your queue to keep your favorites fragrances coming.
Scentbird is one of my favorite subscriptions. There are so many colognes and Eau de toilettes out there to choose from, it’s hard to pick just one for a big bottle purchase. Picking out a cologne in an actual store is hard – it’s too difficult to isolate the cologne you are trying from all the other scents and no time to experience the dry down of the fragrance (i.e. the actual scent you will experience all day). I love being able to choose any of their scents – all high-end colognes – at a very reasonable price and try them out at my own pace in real-world conditions. I can figure out if I love a scent enough to purchase a big bottle, and even if I don’t want to commit, I get to build a nice collection of scents!
FYI – there is no gender divide with this subscription – ladies can add men’s fragrances and vice versa, and you can share if you’d like, or get a second subscription if you find it impossible.
