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.
When you sign up, you can fill out a quiz so Scentbird can provide you with some suggestions. There are only 5 questions and you can take the quiz as often as you like. You can place both men’s and women’s scents in your queue too and of course there are lots of unisex scents available. You can also fill the queue with whichever fragrances you prefer and keep in mind that if your queue is empty, you will receive the Fragrance of the Month. The Perfume of the Month for July is Anna Sui Fantasia Mermaid.
Everything in my box! My scent was placed in a cardboard tube to keep it safe during shipping.
I received a card that showed a picture of my fragrance.
The back of the card listed the fragrance notes and ingredients, as well as the country of origin.
Nest New York Sunkissed Hibiscus Eau De Parfum ($74 for 50ml, or buy an 8ml mini for $27) I went with a blind buy that had notes that sounded perfect for summer. It’s an oriental floral with notes of amber, frangipani, and orange blossom. Not listed but also present is coconut upon the initial spritz. For the first 30 minutes or so it smells like a beachy tropical vacation scent, minus the suntan lotion note.
After a while it turned warmer and that amber base note stayed for hours. My daughter tried this scent and said it faded quickly but I felt like it got stronger as the day went on. I’m not 100% happy with the base note, but I think it is common in Nest fragrances. So starts out beachy, turns into a warm amber white floral. Projection was decent too, I didn’t have to keep smelling my arm, it was there until bedtime.
Scentbird shows the main notes on their website and gives a brief description. This was the perfume of the month back in March and a new scent for 2020 so there is quite a lot of votes on the website. When you hover over the icons you will see how members voted on the fragrance. For instance, they thought this scent was floral, flirty, and perfect for summer. Within the “personality” section they said this was a flirty scent, with sexy and elegant coming in 2nd and 3rd.
Your first shipment will come with a carrying case and you can purchase extra cases on the Scentbird website.
Place the vial in the case and twist down until the sprayer is hidden (you may need to push it a bit).
Scentbird is a great way to try new fragrances before committing to a full sized bottle! You can order more than one scent each month or you can fill your queue with beauty and wellness items if you are on perfume overload. I like that they carry niche fragrance lines as well as more well known brands. The vials hold 8ml of fragrance, enough for about 120 sprays, and Sephora sells an 8ml purse size of this scent for $27, so I got it at a significant discount, saving $11.84 vs buying it at Sephora!
