DEAL: Get your second month free when you use this link!
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.
Everything inside my pack!
Scentbird decants the cologne from the manufacturer’s bottle to an 8 ml glass vial with a pump 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. You can buy an additional tube for each new month’s fragrance, use the vial without an outer case, or swap out the glass cologne vial and use the first month’s metal tube over and over again — whatever works best for you.
The flip side of the card reminds you how to use your sprayers and set up your queue to keep your favorites fragrances coming. You can manage your scent queue online and rate colognes you’ve tried to get better-tailored recommendations.
My January 2019 scent is Mercedes-Benz Select! Scentbird has a featured cologne or eau de toilette each month, but it is just a suggestion — what you receive is determined by the selections you make on your online profile queue.
The back of the card gives you more info about your scent. It lists the main notes of the fragrance — this makes it easier to identify the components and figure out which ones you really love — you can then round out your queue by picking other fragrances that also have those elements.
This cologne container is very light and handy, and it’s travel-ready even after just being removed from its pouch case. It is the perfect cologne on-the-go!
Mercedes-Benz Select Eau De Toilette – This is a relatively new fragrance from Mercedes-Benz as it was only launched last year. It’s a type of Woody Chypre scent for guys.
The container is pretty simple and neat, its top features the logo of Scent Bird New York!
The man behind this scent is Olivier Cresp. It has black currant and bergamot as its top notes. Mint and apple are the middle notes, and for the base notes, there’s patchouli, ambroxan, and musk which gives the perfume that woodsy scent. What I like about this scent is that it has the right mix of woodsy and somber tones of black currant and bergamot, while there are whiffs of apple and mint that make this an elegant perfume to use. It’s not too outlandish, but rather has a more masculine scent.
Scentbird for Men has given me a sampler for Mercedes-Benz and I was immediately impressed with their choice of fragrance. The woodsy scent has the right hints of sweetness to it from the middle notes, which blend into fruitier and vegetal tones. It’s a great way to sample new fragrances and test drive, or build a complete fragrance wardrobe.
