Earth by Roberta Andrade – Full Size 2oz – Value: $55.00
Top Note: Fresh Cut Grass, New Mown Hay
This was my least favorite scent this month. It’s not awful, it’s just not me. In my opinion this would be great to wear when you’re going to be outdoors all day but don’t want to smell exactly like the great outdoors all day. I’m quite the house mouse if it’s not summer. This scent just didn’t speak to me. Side Note: Does anyone else hate the way their kids smell when they’ve been playing outside for hours…or is it just me?
Her Excellency White by Estevia – Full Size 3.4oz – Value: $40.00
Top Note: Rosemary
This was my favorite scent this month. It’s very grown up! But don’t’ get me wrong, this isn’t your mama, great auntie or old lady down the way sort of scent. This is the female entrepreneur with all her ducks in a row slaying her presentation on Shark Tank. It would be great for any formal dinner or business meeting; anywhere you’re looking to stop the show. A little bit goes a long way, so two spritzes are enough.
Josephine by Rance – Full Size 3.4oz – Value: $130.00
Top Note: May Rose, Jasmine
This was a close favorite for me. It smells like Johnson & Johnson baby lotion made for adults who still love that baby lotion smell. ME!! LOL. It’s really lovely. It’s so light and airy it seems like I could spray the whole bottle and I would smell exactly the same. The more I sniff this one and Her Excellency, the more tempted I am to switch favorites!
Verdict: I’m trying to think outside the box because I know everyone isn’t into perfume samples like I am. I personally love my first box from Scent Trunk! I think the packaging is super cute, and the included spray strips and pouch give this subscription a polished finish. I’ve gotten the chance to wear each perfume twice since I received my box and I only have a few gripes. I wish the vials weren’t completely covered by the lapel adhesive. I would like to see how full the vial was when received, and how much I’ve used up now. Also, I would actually like to see a fourth sample included that every subscriber receives (men, women and unisex box respectively). I know that’s strange because each month is curated for each individual. I think that one uniformed item each month would allow subbies to see how people liked/ or didn’t like a perfume during the same month as them. Maybe it could be called “Founder’s Favorite” or “Editor’s Note” something of the sort that Scent Trunk is really feeling.
What are your thoughts on Scent Trunk? I’m always excited to try new to me brands. Tell me below, what’s favorite scent for Him and Her?
