Scentbird Subscription Box Review + Coupon – April 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.)

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 Tocca Florence.

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, the next perfume in my queue was my favorite perfume for the spring and summer month’s Acuqa di Gioia by Armani.  It has notes of Mint, Brown Sugar, Lemon, Jasmine, Peony, Pink Pepper, Cedarwood, and Labdanum.  This is one of the freshest, most beautiful scents with my chemistry.  I get asked quite often when I wear it, what it is that I’m wearing, and I LOVE smelling it on myself – which is weird.  I know.  I am excited to get a travel size version of this scent, and I’m hoping Scentbird gets the other, newer versions of this perfume so I can try the new ones and compare them to the original!

Verdict:  The value of my perfume this month comes out to about $11.12.  I have a habit of picking the lower value ones I guess!  This subscription is really dependent on which perfume you choose when it comes to value, and I’m always happiest when I chose scents that I love versus scents that are expensive. So I am always happy with the value of this subscription. I also 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. I chose Nest Indigo & it is FANTASTIC.

  2. The way you feel about Acuga De Gioia is how I feel about Juicy Couture’s scents! I was able to try all versions with Scentbird & I am so happy. I have so many perfumes that I am always changing it up. Sk these always lasy me way more than a month!

  3. Love this subscription. You can change your scent by the season and it usually lasts me more than a month.

  4. My scent this month is Issey Miyake L’eau d’Issey Florale and I am in love! It is floral and clean without being overpowering. I may buy a full-size bottle.
