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 Nest Dahlia and Vines.
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 Flowerbomb by Viktor and Rolf. The scent is described as a “…floral explosion releases a profusion of flowers that has the power to make everything seem more positive. Magically evocative notes immediately awaken your deepest senses, giving you the impression of living life in your own secret garden, away from reality. Sambac jasmine, centifolia rose, cattleya orchid, and ballerina freesia bloom on a base of patchouli.”
I have seen this one around for a while, and just never smelled it. I like the scent – it is very light and fresh, but sweet at the same time. It doesn’t seem to last a very long time, but while I can still smell it, it smells delicious!
On a side note – does anyone else have issues getting their vial into the atomizer lately? I have to pretty much force it in, and then it is super difficult to get out!
Verdict: The value of my perfume this month comes out to about $
5.10 $23 (based on Sephora’s 10ml travel size for $29). 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!
