Scentbird for Women Subscription Review + Coupon – July 2017
Scentbird is a perfume subscription where you choose one fragrance per month. They offer a variety of authentic designer scents and allow you to narrow down by either traditional categories for notes (e.g., floral, woody, spicy, etc.) or more general descriptive terms (e.g., mysterious, classic, flirty). Subscribers also receive a monthly discount code that can be used on full-size bottles of perfume or cologne from the Scentbird shop.

Scentbird always sends a preview card for next month’s fragrance. For August, it is Bergamot by Commodity. This one sounds a little too fruity for me but it’s not possible to please everyone all the time when it comes to fragrance and I think they do a good job of mixing things up. (There’s no information card specific to your chosen fragrance since those will differ for everyone.)
This is described in some places as an Oriental floral, which is generally a category I like, and probably the reason I picked it. This is fairly light and somewhat powdery when I wear it. I am not typically a big fan of powdery scents, although I saw some appeal in this one. It did not change significantly over time for me, which was interesting. I feel like this one is good for daily use because it’s not too strong. Notes include vanilla, peach, lychee, amber, lily, plum, musk, jasmine, mandarin, lily of the valley, vetiver, and bergamot. Despite all the fruit notes in here, this is not an overly fruity scent for me. The amber, musk, and vanilla are what make this work (for me, anyway).
Verdict: My fragrance this month has a value about $1.00 above the cost of the subscription. I have a talent for picking low-value fragrances but what’s more important is how much I like them! You can certainly manipulate the value to get more than you paid for (they have a few Cartier fragrances, for example, and Lilac Love, which costs $400 a bottle elsewhere). I have tried some other Dolce and Gabbana fragrances but this one is new to me and I think it will work nicely as a wear-to-work scent.
