Scentbird Subscription Box Review + Coupon – July 2015

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Scentbird Subscription Box Review + Coupon – July 2015 - box

Scentbird is a perfume sampling subscription box that sends you 100% authentic perfumes every month. When you sign up, you take a preferences quiz to help them suggest recommendations for you to try, and you can also go browse and rate the rest of their selection to make the recommendations even more accurate. You can build a queue of fragrances you’d like to try or you can let yourself be surprised every month.

Because this subscription is so heavily personalized, the fragrance I selected to review this month is only one of a large number other subscribers may have received.

This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

The Subscription: Scentbird

The Cost: $14.95/monthly, $14.50/month with a 3-month plan, $14/month with a 6 month plan, or $13.50/month with a year plan.

The Products: One 8 ml spray atomizer of a 100% authentic perfume

Ships to: US

Last month they introduced Scentbird Muses – basically, they’re having social media celebrities choose and endorse the Perfumes of the Month.

Along with the fragrance you receive each month, Scentbird also includes a card describing the “perfume of the month” for the next month, selected by the featured “muses.” August’s featured fragrance is Burberry Brit.

With your first month’s delivery, you receive a perfume case that fits your 8 ml sprays inside – this card details how to use it!

The purse spray case you get with your first month is black, and comes with the sample vial inside. Recently they received feedback that subscribers wanted the option to order more cases, and they listened! You can now add-on extra cases to your delivery for $12.95, and you can choose between pink and black! This is what the pink case looks like (closed) – it’s gorgeous and I adore it.

And here you can see it open. I have to say that that these atomizer cases are probably my favorite part of this subscription for me. The cases have a nice weight, are sleek, and feel high quality. It’s super easy to open and close, and to switch perfumes you just open, pull the vial out, and place the next one inside!

The fragrance I received this month is Coach Poppy, which is actually the perfume of the month. Poppy is categorized under “Everyday, Flirty, and Fruit.” Its top notes include cucumber flower petals, mandarin, freesia buds. Its core notes include jasmine, pink water lily, southern gardenia, and red candied rose. The base notes include crème brulèe (yum!), cedarwood, sandalwood, vanilla, and marshmallow.

I’ve heard a lot about this fragrance but haven’t tried it myself before. I love it! It smells very clean and fresh. The floral and vanilla are there but without being too flowery or sweet. I love the way the mandarin stands out on my skin.

The Verdict: I’m really happy with this month’s Scentbird perfume of the month! I actually found the full-size fragrances on sale at Sephora. Normally I compare the Scentbird value to rollerball sizes of the fragrances but to get this perfume in a rollerball form you have to get one that is dual-ended and has both this fragrance and another from Coach with it (which would be a waste of half the product if you didn’t like the second perfume). However, the 1-ounce bottle usually sells for $48, so this .32 oz/9.5 ml spray is worth about $15.36. I’m happy with that value! (FYI – The sample size Scentbird sends is enough for a month of use, with two applications a day.)

I love that Scentbird has such a large selection and variety and includes lots of high-end brands that I recognize. I’ve found they don’t typically carry perfumes that have been very newly released but here they are with a limited edition fragrance, so maybe that’s changing a little! Also, you can always email them requests. They keep a list of perfumes they plan on adding, and requests for specific fragrances add to that list or bump them up in priority.

If you’re interested in trying out Scentbird, they offer some of my favorite (and quite popular) fragrances to try: Prada Candy, Lancome La Vie Est Belle, and Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy are just some of my recommendations!

  1. Scentbird is the great. They have hands down the best customer service ever, the best referral program and if you are unsure about if you this is something that may or may not be right up your alley, instead of paying the full price for the first month, you can use FFFDEAL coupon code and get away with 25% off the first month. As good as it gets.

  2. Do u get to keel the cologne case it comes in???

    • Your first shipment comes with a black case (and instructions on how to switch out what is inside). You do get to keep that and it is the only one you get. However, if you choose to pay a little extra, they have been coming out with some other colors (this pink one, or red) that you can buy.

  3. I really wanted to love this sub, but I just didn’t get anything I lived over a six month sub (did the last rue la la deal). I wouldn’t rule out doing it again in the future, but I’ll wait for another deal and until I a, more knowledgeable to start with. And until they work out some website bugs as it seems like I had trouble really sorting and getting my list in order.

  4. I just started my subscription and am so happy I did! I absolutely am obsessed with perfume and this a great way to always try something new! And I love the case. Fits great in a wristlet!

  5. Does anyone know if there is a male version of this? My husband is obsessed with colognes!

    • Scent Trunk specializes in men’s perfumes. But it has a different model. For $18/month they send you 3 perfume samples from niche perfumiers. You fill out your scent profile and they chose scents for you. They did an amazing job for me in the one box I subscribed to. The perfumes they sent were just perfect for me.

      BUT, I felt it was too expensive a service for me. If I was more sophisticated perfume-wise I may feel different. But if my husband was into colognes, I’d try it for a month and see whether it’s worth it for him.

      • I love love love Scent Trunk. They have, hands down, the absolute best customer service of any subscription company I’ve ever dealt with (possibly any company period that I’ve dealt with), not to mention some great perfumes. I switched to the quarterly plan ($20 for 4 samples every quarter) because I am in perfume overload right now and couldn’t possibly use it all if I kept the monthly subscription.

        I do think the value is there, though. It’s $15/month for 3 samples / month or $20/quarter for 4 samples / quarter, and they send some pretty pricey niche fragrances. I’ve gotten several that are $300+ full size. (Thankfully for my budget those haven’t been my favorites.) You can also earn points, and I think you can put those toward purchasing full sizes.

        Okay, done singing praises now.

    • They offer men’s scents. I just “signed up” (meaning I window shopped). You can also choose the scent you want shipped to you by queuing them up. It’s like Netflix for colognes and perfumes. But you keep the product you receive.

    • Yes, it’s for woman and men. The men’s cologne selection is awesome too!!

  6. I just signed up for them using a livingsocial voucher…i am so excited to try out this service.

  7. Is there a list of all of the options for perfume Scentbird offers that I can see without signing up for an account with them?

    • Bekki,

      I don’t think you can browse their perfumes without making an account, but you can absolutely browse all you want – and even set up your queue – completely free without having to enter any card info or anything. Plus, you can always unsubscribe from their emails if you don’t want to receive them, which I think happens automatically when you sign up?. Hope that helps!
