Scentbird for Women February 2018 Review
This month, I received Scentbird‘s “Scent of the Month.” You can either opt for the scent of the month or you can fill a queue with fragrances of your choosing:
There was what is basically an advertising flyer for this month’s scent, “Glossier You” by Glossier.
Some months, you will get a new case for your fragrance, but in months where a new case doesn’t come, your glass fragrance vial is packaged inside a cardboard tube that includes directions on how to replace the fragrance vials in the holders. (I know from personal experience that you can absolutely spray the fragrance vials without them being in holders at all, but if you want to carry one around in your purse, the holders are nice to have around.)
Glossier You by Glossier, 8mL – Estimated Value $9.60 (buy a 50 mL bottle for $60)
This is a new brand for me. This is musky, powdery, and floral (the floral note is iris, so it’s not quite the same as rose or jasmine or gardenia or something). Although I do like musky fragrances, I’m not so into powdery fragrances and florals I can take or leave, depending on the other notes. This is honestly a little too generic for me and probably not something I would’ve chosen for myself, as I tend to prefer smoky/spicy/Oriental scents. I will wear it to the office (sillage is not super strong so it won’t choke out my coworkers) but I wouldn’t buy it in full size.
Scentbird Rose & Prosecco Hand Cream (1 oz?) – Estimated Value $12
Scentbird also recently introduced their own brand of bath and body products, which you can add to your subscription or purchase separately. Although I wasn’t super enthusiastic about the perfume this month, I love this hand cream. It does have a rose scent (I’m a fan) but I guess it is the “prosecco” part that really makes this work for me. It adds a crispness to the rose scent that I really like. I used this right before typing on my computer, too, and I didn’t get my keyboard and trackpad all greasy, which is great.
Verdict: This month’s fragrance didn’t quite meet the price point of the subscription, but if you are interested in getting the best value, you can fill your queue with expensive scents. (The hand cream size I believe I received is 1 oz, which you can purchase separately but which is not part of the main subscription. You can get a larger size of the hand cream by subscription and that is a better deal per unit volume.) Although I didn’t end up loving the fragrance, I did think it was OK, and I was a fan of the hand cream.
To Wrap Up:

Value Breakdown: This subscription is $14.95/monthly and this month, I received $9.60 worth of fragrance (but again, this is highly variable based on what scent you receive).
