Scentbird sends out authentic perfume each month in smaller vials for you to try them out, or switch up your scent more often.
When you sign up, you fill out a survey to determine your scent preferences, and they recommend specific scents for you to try out. You add perfumes to your queue when you find one that you want to try which is how they choose what to send each month. If you don’t choose one by the cut off date, they will send you the scent of the month. Next month it is Malin+Goetz Bergamot.
Scentbird includes a twist up perfume atomizer with your first shipment. You can order additional atomizers on their website for an additional fee.
When you subscribe to Scentbird, you’ll get a $15.00 “credit” each month to buy a full sized bottle of cologne – this doesn’t look like it is cumulative, and seems more like a member’s discount.
Scentbird has also introduced a new a la carte service. You can choose any cologne you want, with each spray being just $16.95 plus shipping (shipping is free if you order 3 or more sprays). The cases are sold separately.
This month, my next perfume in the line up was Issey Miyake L’eau d’Issey EDT for women. The notes are: Lotus, Freesia, Cyclamen, Rose Water, Fresh Peonies, Carnation, White Lilies, Precious Woods, Osmanthus, Tuberose, Amberseed, and Musk. I was not expecting to fall in love with this perfume because of all the florals but fall in love with it I have. It smells amazing on me, and even though it is heavy on the florals, it’s not cloying. I think I have found another perfume to add to my regular rotation!
Verdict: The value of my perfume this month comes out to about $16.08. This subscription is really dependent on which perfume you choose when it comes to value. I’m always happiest when I chose scents that I love versus scents that are expensive. I fell in love with my scent this month, so it was just a bonus that I got a higher value perfume! I might use my $15.00 credit this month to purchase this one full size – I love it that much!
I love the size of these vials because they’re perfect for travel or just to throw in your gym bag for a quick spritz when you need it. They’re also cheaper than rollerballs, and I prefer spritzes anyway!
