Scentbird is a monthly perfume and fragrance decanting subscription, but that’s not all! You can also choose to receive makeup, skincare, body care, supplements, and even candles! 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. Keep in mind that some fragrances and other items may have an upcharge of up to $15 in addition to the subscription cost.
Scentbird is about the fun and magic of fragrance. We designed Scentbird for the pickiest girl- or boy- to let you date luxury perfumes before marrying them.
Everything in my box! You can go with the scent of the month, which for March will be Nest Sunkissed Hibiscus, or fill up your queue with scents that sound interesting to you. You can take a quiz when you sign up and answer questions such as your fragrance type, scent notes desired, etc. and get recommendations or just choose ones that sound good to you. If you don’t choose then Scentbird will send you the scent of the month. Scentbird sends vials that are filled with 8ml (0.27oz) of fragrance.
I went with a new-to-me brand and received a card announcing my chosen fragrance.
The back listed some scent notes and ingredients, as well as the country of origin.
My scent was protected in this cardboard holder, which includes instructions on how to switch your scents around in the holder.
Elis Brooklyn West Eau De Parfum ($105 for 50ml) I went with something different this month, since it’s a blind buy from a company I’ve never heard of before. It’s a unisex citrus scent but it also had warm notes that I thought would help me transition to spring.
Scent notes include amber, clementine, ginger, and vetiver. I really couldn’t detect any of those spices, but the scent is warm and citrusy. It isn’t a unique scent, I know I have a similar scent in my collection, but where my other scent turns sour, this one stays sweet and juicy. I can’t remember the name of the other scent, probably because I have been wearing heavy florals rather than uplifting citruses and haven’t come across it recently.
Scentbird gives you the main notes of a fragrance and they also let subscribers rate the perfumes too. Most of the Scentbirdies said this was indeed a citrusy scent, and I’m surprised to see woody came in higher than fruity. I couldn’t detect the spices and it looks like most wearers couldn’t either, as they rated that type low. I agree that it is good for everyday wear, and it works well for spring and summer.
Your first Scentbird shipment will come with a holder for your scent vial, and then you receive a new holder every once in a while. I am using a red holder that I received a while back, it’s perfect for February!
Just place the vial in the holder…
…then twist and push down until the sprayer is hidden, and twist again when you need to reapply.
I like my new fragrance from Scentbird! I love a surprise and that’s my favorite part of this subscription. I ended up liking my scent a lot, and I think it smells good on me. It starts off strong but not offensive and after a couple of hours I can’t smell much on my skin. I think it’s great for those warmer days where I don’t want something cloying, just fresh and juicy yet still cozy. A 10ml spray bottle costs $30, so this is worth around $24, so I saved some money too! Don’t forget to check out Scentbird’s other offerings – they have great skincare and other items for way less than you would regularly pay for those items.
