I started by taking a quick scent quiz and received some suggestions on what I should order, but then I perused the scents on offer and decided to fill up my queue with popular scents like Mon Paris and Black Opium.
I received my monthly scent in a simple black box placed in a mailer box. No cards or literature, Scentwist keeps it simple! Scentwist vials hold .27 ounces, or 8ml. It is enough for several sprays a day throughout the month.
Everything in my box!
Hermes Eau Des Merveilles Eau De Parfum ($112 for 1.69 ounces) I went with a new-to-me brand because I guess I wanted to feel chic and the French are always so fashionable. At first blast I didn’t love this, in fact, I thought it smelled like aftershave! Scent notes include orange, amber, cedar, and vetiver. It is a warm scent, not really any florals in its makeup. I caught a powdery vibe and there’s a hint of something unpleasant from my chemistry perhaps. I gets better though as time goes on and it mellows and yet deepens a bit.
Every quarter you will receive a new case for your scent vials so you can grab the one that suits your fancy. Just place your scent in the bottle and give it a twist to either hide or reveal the nozzle.
I am always intrigued by the scents available on the Scentwist website and since they have such an unusual selection of fragrances I tend to pick bolder choices rather than playing it safe. I might set this one aside and bring it back out in the fall, it is missing that citrusy feeling I was looking for but the deeper notes might play better in autumn. I think the biggest value for me is in getting to choose pricey fragrances for a fraction of the price of a full bottle! My value for this month was around $17.90, which is more than the price paid for the box, but it was also exciting to try a fancy French fragrance!
