Luxury Scent Box May 2019 Review
There was a card included that described one of this month’s two fragrances. There were also some instructions for using the holders.
On to the fragrances:
Like with some of the other fragrance subscriptions, you’ll receive purse-sized holders for your fragrances. These are slightly larger than the ones from Scentbird or Scent Box but the Luxury Scent Box fragrance vials can be removed, switched around, etc.
Shay and Blue White Peaches (9 mL) – Estimated Value $14.73 (buy for $49.09 USD)
This is a new fragrance that was just released this year. And, it smells almost exactly like you’d expect. The peach is very prominent and I feel like it lasts a long time for a top note. Mid notes include ice and black elder (neither of which is very common) and the base note is birch, which is also unusual. Honestly, although I’m not usually super into fruity fragrances, I like this one because it is different. It lasts a respectable amount of time and is noticeable but not overpowering. If you like the smell of peaches in other fragrances, bath/body products, etc., you will probably like this one.
Shay and Blue Blueberry Musk (9 mL) – Estimated Value $14.73 (buy for $49.09 USD)
This one is a few years older (introduced in 2016). On me, it is all musk and no blueberry. Well, OK, the base notes are musk and cashmere wood, and I would say I can easily detect both of those. Mid notes are orange blossom and magnolia and this is so not floral on me (which is fine). Top notes are blueberry and orange. I feel like I *would* like those together, but they are just not noticeable in combination with my body chemistry (your mileage may vary). I do like this as a musky, woody scent and will wear it when I am in the mood for something like that, which happens from time to time.
Verdict: The estimated value of my fragrances this month is $14.73 each. This is very nearly equal to the $30/month cost of the box. Although you can order these directly from the manufacturer (both of the links above), I’d probably look for a US source if you want to try them, because shipping flammable liquids from the UK is going to be expensive. I definitely think there is some value to receiving a UK fragrance without paying for shipping from the UK and without the wait (ordering non-flammable items like beads from there takes maybe a week and a half to get to me and I’m sure perfume would take longer). Also, this was a totally new brand for me and that was fun to experience.
Please note: Some subscribers have complained in various perfume reviews on MSA as well as on this older Luxury Scent Box review about problems with shipping and delivery. Please comment below with your experience to help fellow MSA readers make an informed decision.
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Yes, all you have to do is choose these fragrances.
Value Breakdown: This subscription is $30/monthly and this month, I received $29.46 worth of fragrance (but again, this is highly variable based on what scent you choose).
