Scentbird is a perfume subscription 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., floral, woody, spicy, etc.) or more general descriptive terms (e.g., mysterious, classic, flirty). Subscribers also receive a monthly discount code that can be used on full-size bottles of perfume or cologne from the Scentbird shop.

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 for Women July 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, “Get a Room” by Confessions of a Rebel.

Your fragrance is typically packaged in a cardboard tube and if you look at the back, it has instructions for how to put these in the Scentbird holders.

Get a Room by Confessions of a Rebel – Estimated Value $12.33 (buy 3.4 oz for $155)

This brand appears to only exist on Scentbird, a single Instagram account, and the website linked to above (which isn’t fully set up yet, and which redirects you to Scentbird for purchases). I’m not entirely sure the images of their bottles aren’t Photoshopped mockups. If Scentbird is getting into the game of creating their own perfumes, that’s fine – I like their bath and body products. But I kind of wish they were more open about it if that’s what’s going on here.

At any rate, I’ve decided I actually do like this fragrance quite a bit. The top notes could be interpreted as harsh and masculine, but this wears down into something fruity and a little woody and sweet that is a good fit for me. The main notes are red apple, mandarin, cypress, vanilla, and clary sage. After a little while, the cypress and vanilla are the standouts, which is probably why I’m a fan – I like woody notes in fragrance a lot, especially when combined with sweet and spicy notes. I am not sure the scent, as it smells in conjunction with my body chemistry, makes me think of the fragrance name at all (it is not really sultry or sexy in my mind) but as long as I like it and will wear it again, I don’t really care about the name.

Verdict: The estimated value of my fragrance this month is $12.33, which is a little below the month-to-month cost of the subscription, but since this fragrance is apparently new and hard to find (not available at department stores or Sephora, etc.), I am OK with a slightly lower value from a product discovery aspect. (Of course, you can pad the value by selecting the most expensive fragrances for your own queue – you don’t have to stick with the scent of the month.)

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Yes, all you have to do is choose this fragrance for your queue.

Coupon – Buy one month, get your second month free! No coupon required—just use this link.

Value Breakdown: This subscription is $14.95/monthly and this month, I received $12.33 worth of fragrance (but again, this is highly variable based on what scent you receive).

  1. Pretty cool they gave us $10! I ordered another perfume case..a hot pink shiny one…i have the original white one I got with the first perfume bottle…but I usually have perfume left over so it will come in handy to have the extra case! The total was only like $2.75 or something after the $10 credit.

  2. I have two subs coming to my household and both are extremely late. We got $10 credit in each account. Sounds like they’re just having issues moving HQ to several states away, so I get it, but I think I’d prefer something like just picking out an extra item instead.

  3. You can select the past Deck of Scarlet palettes instead of perfume. It’s normally $30 a month so getting it through Scentbird is a much better value than their perfume.

    • I didn’t know that, but will make sure to check it out and include that information in my next review. Thanks for the tip.

    • Is there an extra charge to pick the palette instead of the perfume?🌟☄

      • No there isn’t an extra charge. You can select a Deck of Scarlet palette for the regular monthly cost. There is a candle option too. The only difference is that Deck of Scarlet normally includes one or two bonus items that aren’t part of the palette such as a lip gloss, eye liner, eye crayon, or lip liner. You don’t receive the bonus if you go through Scentbird, only the palette. They also don’t have the most current version, only some of the past editions.

  4. I got an email that July packages are running late and a lot of us will receive Julys with August. Blah lol

    • Mine was very late, much later than usual. So it is true for reviewers too. But thanks for letting me know, I was wondering about that.
