Luxury Scent Box June 2018 Review
This box doesn’t have a theme because you can choose what fragrances you receive, so each subscriber’s box is unique:
There was a little more information about how to use the holder that comes with your fragrance.
There was also a small card with instructions on how to use the holder that comes with the package.
You receive a new case every quarterly; it will be shipped automatically.
Grand Neroli by Atelier Cologne (9 mL) – Estimated Value $22.50 (Buy 30 mL for $75)
This is a complex fragrance. While it does have some citrus notes (lemon and bergamot), it also has some florals (neroli, of course, and galbanum), a base of amber and musk, vanilla, and some green notes (petitgrain and birch leaf). At different times, I can detect most of these, but despite the name, there is a definite “green” impression I get with this one, overall (at least when I wear it). “Green” is not something I seek out in fragrances, but I think it works here, especially with the amber, musk, and vanilla. This is a good spring/summer fragrance, I think, and I feel like it would work as a unisex scent (I tend to like those for myself).
Pomelo Paradis by Atelier Cologne (9 mL) – Estimated Value $22.50 (Buy 30 mL for $75)
This is primarily a citrus scent and while that’s not normally what I go for, I have really been a fan of pretty much everything from Atelier Cologne I’ve ever tried and that is true here, too. I think grapefruit (i.e., “pomelo”) is underutilized in the fragrance world and that is definitely the most prominent note here. This does also have some mandarin and then a few base notes like vetiver and amber that I’m usually a fan of, plus a few floral notes that I honestly can’t detect (fine by me) and mint, which is very light but works well in the overall blend. Mostly this just smells like grapefruit on me unless I really concentrate! But that is a great scent for summer and I am happy with this selection.
Verdict: The fragrances I received this month had an estimated value of $45, so they definitely exceeded the cost of the subscription (remember the two-fragrance variation goes for $30 as an upgrade for existing subscribers). If you’re looking to maximize value, that’s great, but I also think there is some value in using the tools that come with the subscription to figure out what sorts of scents you like the best. I was already familiar with Atelier Cologne but was still happy to see these two fragrances as I’ve been a fan for awhile.
In terms of comparison to similar services, this costs about the same as Scentbird. You get 9 mL here instead of 8 mL as with Scentbird, so you’d receive a little more product with Luxury Scent Box if you opted for the same fragrance. Scentbird and Luxury Scent Box have overlapping but not identical fragrance selections, so the decision may come to who carries the brands you are most interested in trying. Do note that you have to upgrade to an $18/month plan to take advantage of the full range of offerings from Luxury Scent Box.
