Scentbird February 2019 - Envelope Top

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 February 2019 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 a flyer for this month’s scent, “Angel” by Thierry Mugler.

Angel by Thierry Mugler – Estimated Value $11.20 (buy 3.4 fl oz for $140)

I already knew about this fragrance thanks to either subscription boxes or GWPs (don’t honestly remember). But I was happy to see it because I know it is one that I like! There is a dizzying array of bottles available so I used the large refill bottle to estimate the price because there, you’re not really paying for packaging. But if you want one of the fancy stars instead, well, you’ll pay a bit more per ounce.

This fragrance has a lot going on. I don’t know the last time I have seen this many notes on the Fragrantica page for any fragrance. There are fruits and a few flowers but on me, the notes that stand out are patchouli, sandalwood, musk, vanilla, tonka bean, and some sweet notes like honey and caramel. There are also a few spices (i.e., nutmeg) that I notice. As it happens, these are all the things I like in a fragrance.

You don’t need much of this at once, the sillage is quite strong. I find that, on me, the profile doesn’t change a whole lot over time and that this is maybe a little longer-lasting than other fragrances.

Verdict: The estimated value of my fragrance this month is $11.20, which is less than the month-to-month cost of the subscription. Your value will depend entirely on what fragrance you choose and if you care to do the math beforehand, you can come out pretty well. For me, though, this is more about discovering fragrances that will work for me, and if they have a bit of a lower value, I can deal with that. I already knew this was one I liked, but I didn’t have any at home, and now I do, and I will probably use the whole sample up and maybe I will use some Ulta points to get a full sized-bottle.

Please note: Some MSA readers have been having trouble getting their Scentbird shipments on time lately so be sure to read the comments on some of the past reviews to get a sense of what the issues are when making the decision to sign up.

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.

Value Breakdown: This subscription is $14.95/monthly and this month, I received $11.20 worth of fragrance (but again, this is highly variable based on what scent or product you choose).

  1. I just subscribed in February and got my first shipment right away. Let’s hope they continue to ship to me on time!

  2. I do not know how this site can continue to promote this company. I subbed in January and have never received the first order. I cancelled before I was billed again but I have yet to receive product or refund for the initial charge.

    This company has a history of promoting itself to get new subscribers while not delivering product to others. They have been claiming warehouse moving issues for more than 6 months. Do not sub!

  3. I got an email from Scentbird stating they’re now offering skincare products as part of their subscription too. Recently, I’ve been wanting to revisit some old sub box faves, and Scentbird was one of them since I love to discover new perfumes, but all of the recent stories of shipping issues scared me a little so I didn’t re-sub. I subbed off & on a little starting in 2017, and I never had any issues getting my perfumes on time (well, once it was delayed, but they sent an email informing me about it), but I don’t know if their shipping issues are a new thing. I’ll give it some more time, and continue reading the comments here to see if anything has changed for the better.

  4. I’ve got my scents consistently and on time since I’ve signed up. I’m loving this sub thus far..
