Scent Box April 2019 Review
This month, I received Scent Box’s “Scent of the Month.”
The information card has a little information about the men’s scent of the month on one side and the women’s on the other side.
In case I have not mentioned it in the past, you get a new holder every month and the fragrance is printed on a sticker on the bottom, and the holders tend to be different colors each month, so you can still keep them sorted out.
Also, weirdly, the inside of my envelope this month smelled like lemongrass but thankfully, the fragrance did not. Don’t know what was up with that.
On to the fragrance:
Happy Heart by Clinique – Estimated Value $8.32 (buy 50 mL for $52)
This one, I am familiar with, as I buy Clinique products from time to time and this is sometimes included in a gift with purchase. This was released in 2012 and the main notes are water hyacinth, mandarin, and white wood (the Clinique site lists several kinds of wood including sandalwood, and I can definitely detect the sandalwood).
This reminds me vaguely of a bath and body product I have used in the past, maybe something from Dove, although the usual Dove fragrance notes are not in this product. It’s a positive association, just not one I can quite put my finger on. The mandarin is barely noticeable (on me). I am mostly getting a fairly strong floral scent that is toned down by sandalwood. I think the sandalwood is what makes this one work for me as I am not normally a fan of florals but I do like them a bit when they are combined with woods.
The sillage is stronger than I expected, my poor dog left the room as soon as I put this on, but I can see how a really sensitive dog nose might be bothered! Longevity is about average for me.
Verdict: The estimated value of my fragrance this month is $8.32. That is below the cost of the subscription, but your value will vary quite a lot depending on your selections, and of course you are getting a holder every month as well as the ability to make free exchanges if you don’t care for the fragrance you receive (those last two are definitely not offered with any other fragrance subscription). I am liking this one more than I expected and have honestly been having a pretty good run considering I’m always getting the scent of the month (which is always a surprise).
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Yes, all you have to do is choose this fragrance.
Value Breakdown: This subscription is $14.95 a month and this month, I received $8.32 worth of fragrance (but again, this is highly variable based on what scent or product you choose).
