Scentbird For Men Subscription Review + Coupon– September 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.”    

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

COUPON: Get your first 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 Commodity – Book.

Scentbird includes a twist up perfume atomizer with your first shipment. You can order additional atomizers on their website for an additional fee. I received one this month as well in my men’s subscription, but not my women’s! 


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 Spicebomb by Viktor and Rolf. The notes are bergamot, grapefruit, cinnamon leaf, pink pepper, lavandin, chilli, saffron, elemi, vetiver, balsam fir, tobacco accord, white leather accord. This smells really woodsy and would be perfect for autumn. 

Now, a small side note: this scent immediately reminded me of hamster cage shavings. I know, that’s a weird scent to associate this with, but there you have it. I think I would probably enjoy this on my husband occasionally, but the rest of the time, I would be looking for little rodents. 

Verdict: As far as value goes, all Scentbird for Men vials are the same size, 8 ml, or 0.27 oz.  This particular cologne that I chose has a value of $21.84 (based on the travel size on Sephora).  If value is important to you with this subscription, I would recommend checking the prices on the colognes in your queue to make sure each month will be satisfactory as far as value goes!

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?

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. This company is a scam!
    Do not subscribe!
    I never received anything, and my account was automatically withdrawn.
    The tracking number they provided was non existent.
    And I have tried numerous times to contact them.
    I received an email saying they would respond within 24-48 hrs.
    They never did.
    And they have not credit my account.
    Liers!!! Thiefs!!!
    Worst service I have ever experienced.

  2. Your description is so funny! I actually wear Spicebomb as a female because I just love the way it blends with my skin, but hopefully other people don’t think I smell like a hamster cage!

  3. That was a Perfect description, spot on! However, I just spit Iced Tea across the room. But I definitely know what it smells like. I wish all reviews could be that accurate.
    I’ve been with Scentbird for 2 months & I am enjoying it very much. The size of the vials they send are very generous, I love that they are purse sized. I’m sure I could use one a couple times a day for a month or more before I empty it out. I like how it twists up before you can spray it. No accidental spraying in the purse & no cap to look after or lose.

    You know when I reach for mine in the morning I’m going to think of Hamsters, don’t you?? Thx ???

  4. Hamster cage shavings….ROFLOL!!!!!
