Scentbird For Men Subscription Box Review – January 2016


Scentbird recently released a men’s monthly cologne subscription.

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.”

My Subscription Addiction paid for this box.(Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)


The Subscription Box: Scentbird for Men

The Cost: $14.95/month

The Products: One 1.8 ml bottle of designer fragrance

Shipping:  Free

Ships to:  US only – but they state that they hope to expand soon.

Scentbird includes a twist up perfume atomizer with your first shipment.  You can order additional atomizers on their website for an additional fee.  You’re supposed to pull each glass vial out of the atomizer to replace it when desired!

February’s cologne of the month is Boss Bottled Night. Scentbird describes the fragrance as an aromatic fragrance which abounds in intense and masculine woody accords. It opens with lavender and birch tree aromas, develops with a heart of African violet. Distinctive and seductive, perfect to make a lasting memory. (Sounds like they picked a good one for Valentine’s Day!)

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, I chose Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue for men. Somewhere in the recesses of my mind I thought I remembered smelling it and loving it – so I chose it for my husband this shipment. This cologne is a lighter scent, which I love – it is very fresh, and almost summery. It has notes of mandarin, rosemary, grapefruit peel, musk, etc.

When I got my shipment I sprayed it on my wrist and told my husband to smell it. He smelled it (and having never seen/smelled this cologne before) said “hmm, smells blue.” So apparently Dolce & Gabbana actually make their cologne smell like the name as well. Or something to that effect.

Verdict: This is my second month with Scentbird, and I LOVED this month’s cologne! The atomizer is great quality, and I can even get the refill bottles to spray with a little bit of effort. I think Scentbird is a genius way to try out new colognes/perfumes. Sometimes I need a bit more than just a spritz at the store to see if I like/hate a new scent. If you’re in the market for new perfume – I highly recommend trying Scentbird! Even if you just like to switch it up a bit, and don’t want to invest in a full sized cologne/perfume – Scentbird is the perfect solution.

Have you tried Scentbird for Men? What do you think so far?

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. I LOVE scent bird for women and I’m thinking about getting this for my BF. I’m the type of gal who LOVES to change my perfume based on my mood, so having lots of smaller vials around saves me money vs buying full versions of what I like.
