Scentbird is a cologne subscription for women and men where you choose one fragrance per month. They offer a variety of authentic designer scents and allow you to narrow down by either traditional categories for notes (e.g., citrusy, woodsy, spicy, etc.) or more general descriptive terms (e.g., casual, workout, going out).

Scentbird for Men December 2017 Review
Scentbird always sends a preview card that features the following month's feature fragrance - For January 2018, the featured scent is Cannabis by Malin+Goetz. The scent's notes are spicy herbs with fresh coffee notes with a hint of lingering smokiness. I don't think I'd normally buy this off the name but I'm quite curious to test this scent, so I may add it to my queue in the upcoming months!
Now let's take a look at the scent I chose to receive for December!
This cologne is described as a combination of juniper, citrus, and mint which is a perfect "beginning of winter" scent, as it's fresh and cold, reminding me of the winter's air. The scent itself is a little more citrusy than I'd normally like, but the mint calms it a bit, creating overall a great fresh cologne that'll turn heads! If you're into more fresh scents, this Hugo Boss cologne is for you.
Verdict: I continue to be impressed with Scentbird and the service they provide. I tend to get bored with my colognes over time, so this service is a great way for me to test scents I wouldn't normally buy in the store. I tend to always pick a less expensive cologne every month, so the value received is a little more than a third of the subscription cost. This doesn't bother me as I'm quite happy with the scent and happy to expand my cologne collection.
