Scentbird For Men Subscription Box Review + Coupon– Apr 2016


Scentbird has 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 for 1 .8 ml of designer fragrance with free shipping

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

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

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 Mankind Hero by Kenneth Cole.

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 every month to buy a full sized bottle of cologne.  

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, the next cologne in my line up was L’Eau Bleue d’Issey Pour Homme by Issey Miyake.  The notes of this cologne are mandarin orange, lemongrass, rosemary, star anise, may rose, ginger, palmarosa, patchouli, sandalwood, and musk.  This is a much ‘warmer’ cologne than I anticipated.  I think I was expecting something similar to Dolce and Gabbana’s Light Blue for Men, which is quite light and fresh.  This has some heavy notes to it, but it does smell very nice.  I think it is probably best reserved for colder seasons though, since heat increases the scent on the skin – this might be quite cloying during the summer!  

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 $2.00 based on that. This is a really unusually low value for Scentbird, so I definitely do not recommend basing your opinion on this particular cologne.  If you choose more expensive colognes, obviously your value would increase, so if value is important to you with this subscription, I would recommend checking the prices on the colognes in your queue.  

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!

Have you tried Scentbird for Men yet?  What do you think about it?

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!
