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.
They always include a card that reminds you how to use your sprayers and set up your queue to keep your favorites fragrances coming.
The January 2018 featured cologne is (MALIN+GOETZ) cannabis!
The back of the card gives you more info about the featured scent. 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.
Once removed from the case, the cologne is ready for travel in your Dopp kit, gym bag, briefcase, or overnight bag.
The reusable metal tube comes with your first month’s fragrance. The sleek case protects the vial, preventing breakage and accidental bag saturation.
Also, on your first month, they’ll 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 a ready to use sprayer. You just twist it to spray!
My January selection is Malin + Goetz Cannabis.
Because cannabis is a natural medicinal herb, we consider it a perfect “modern apothecary” ingredient, even if it isn’t strictly traditional. Our Cannabis fragrance balances spicy herbs with white floral notes and a hint of lingering smokiness (sorry, it’s THC-free). One whiff and you’ll know the feeling. Lazy afternoons. Fading innocence. Endless possibilities.
It’s an oil-based perfume with top notes of bergamot and pepper tempered with floral magnolia in the middle. Meanwhile, the base is composed of herbal notes of cedar, patchouli, and sandalwood. I like the smoky and earthy finish!
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.
