Scentbird For Men Subscription Review + Coupon– January 2017
Scentbird was “born out of frustration with the “perfume graveyard” – expensive bottles of designer perfume collecting dust on your dresser or cabinet – Scentbird was created to provide an alternative that is both practical and exciting.” 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 sends out authentic perfume each month in smaller vials for you to try them out, or switch up your scent more often. They also include a twist up perfume atomizer with your first shipment. You can order additional atomizers on their website for an additional fee. I received one this month as well in my men’s subscription, but not my women’s!

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 English Laundry Notting Hill.
This month the next cologne in my line up was Malin+Goetz Dark Rum. This cologne has notes of bergamot, plum, rum, leather, amber, patchouli, and milk. Dark Rum is an Eau de Toilette that is marketed for men and women.
I really like the scent of this eau de toilette – it’s really complex and smells great. The different layers of the scent are fabulous. I do have to say that I gave this the side eye when I saw that one of the notes was milk – that sounded horrendous. Let’s just be real – I probably would have left that one out of the description if I were writing the copy for this cologne.
Verdict: As far as value goes, all Scentbird vials are the same size, 8 ml, or .27 oz. This particular cologne that I chose has a value of about $12 (based on Malin+Goetz’s 100ml size). If value is important to you with this subscription, I would recommend checking the prices on the colognes in your queue to make sure each month will be satisfactory as far as value goes!
For men’s colognes, in particular, it is pretty hard to find a smaller size bottle for traveling if you don’t want to take all 3 oz. of your cologne in your toiletries kit. The fact that we can choose colognes we like, in a smaller size that we can’t find regularly is great. I love Scentbird for this reason! Plus, you get your $15.00 back in a credit in their shop for cologne, even if you don’t love your choice for the month!
