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 Carven Le Parfume

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 Modern Muse Le Rouge by Estee Lauder. The notes listed are Bulgarian rose, rose centifolia, raspberry, bourgeon de cassis, pink pepper, saffron, vanilla, patchouli, vetiver, jasmine, and magnolia. I love the way this perfume smells. It is just a really ‘pretty’ scent – feminine and light. I really like this one, and will probably go through it pretty quickly!. 

Verdict: The value of my perfume this month comes out to about $17.55. 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 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!

Have you tried Scentbird yet?  What scent did you get this month?

Bekki first discovered subscription boxes in 2014 and they quickly took over her life! (Not quite, but pretty close.) She started with POPSUGAR Must Have, then moved to Little Lace Box, Birchbox, Hamptons Lane…the rest was history. Her favorite product find is Beekman 1802 Fudge (so, so good) and her favorite boxes are Birchbox and Hamptons Lane…but she’s always looking for a new subscription to try!

  1. Hi Becky – I just want to point something out to you about your review – in your description of Scentbird you state that you receive 1 .8 ml of product. I looked this up on the Scentbird website as this seems to be a tiny amount to me (I’m from Canada and we have metric measurements). The website states .27 oz or 8 ml, which is significantly more that what you have indicated. To put this in perspective, the Scentbird measurement promises 4 sprays per day for the month.
    Your measurement of .8 ml would run to be the size of a small sample that you would receive from a department store or the ones that have come in some subs. I hope you don’t mind me pointing that out, but when I read 1 .8, I thought this was impossible to charge $14,95/month US for a sample size that one would normally get for free at a department store or Sephora.
