Scentbird Subscription Box Review + Coupon – March 2016


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.”    

This box was sent to us at no cost for review.  (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

COUPON: Get your second month free, no coupon required, just click through this link!

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 Lisa Hoffman Tuscan Fig.

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, I chose a perfume that I’ve never tried in store before, and wasn’t sure what to expect: Clean – Warm Cotton.  The notes are citrus, green pear, verbena, floral, marine, and fruit essences, jasmine, orange flower, musk, fougere, and amber.  Sephora pretty much nails it when they describe it as “just-out-of-the-dryer-freshness.”  I kept smelling my wrists and telling my husband:  “I smell like fabric softener!”  It is a very clean, crisp scent that I would choose to wear on a day that I didn’t want to smell perfume-y, but wanted some scent.  I like it, but I’m not completely sure yet that I would purchase a full size.  

Verdict:  The value of my perfume this month comes out to about $10.80.  I have a habit of picking the lower value ones I guess!  I will definitely use this vial up, but like I said earlier, I am not 100% sure I would purchase a full size of this.  It is really nice though for days when I don’t want to smell strongly.  It’s very fresh and clean and I love it!  I like the size of these vials because they’re perfect for travel, and they’re cheaper than rollerballs (I prefer a spritz 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. Do NOT sign up for this service right now, it seems new members are getting the run around about some issue with a warehouse (?) And people aren’t getting their March shipment, then are expected to let them bill you again for April. Without any indication that March’s box is coming. Check out their facebook, there”s people complaining, and one cookie cutter copy and pasted answer about a delay NO actual post by them (Like a decent company would do!) I have never been so annoyed with a service, I wanted to warn ladies and gents because 15 dollars is a lot to just throw to the wind!

    • I’ve tried to sign up several times, the website does not work. After reading this and Facebook reviews I’m glad I couldn’t sign up!

    • Thank you! I was thinking about it but was having some issues with the site like someone said belo. Just as well now!

  2. I belong to this sub. I love it so far I got opium and Narciso Rodriguez perfume .love it.

  3. I love perfume, and I would be totally all over this subscription…if only they shipped to Canada! 🙁

  4. I love Scentbird! This month I chose Kate Spade Live Colorfully. It’s a pure floral scent, and smells exactly like the Easter Lily that is sitting on my kitchen table in full bloom. Perfect for this time of year! My last choice was Versace Crystal Noir…totall different but it is to die for! This subscription has such a great value, and I love the purse size vials.

    • I also got the Kate Spade “Live Colorfully” and tried it for the first time yesterday….oh my goodness, it’s amazing! A few months ago, I got the Kate Spade “Walk on Air” and also loved that one! This was my 7th month, I keep wanting to stop to save the money but end up talking myself into just one more month!
