Luxury Scent Box May 2019 - Envelope

Luxury Scent Box is a fragrance subscription box for men and women. Each month you will receive 9 mL (about 0.3 fl oz) of a designer fragrance. You can accept the fragrance of the month, you can choose scents based on a short profile survey, or you can just build a calendar of scents on your own.

There are two subscription options:

  • the Standard Plan for $15 a month and includes one 9ml travel spray
  • the Premium Plan for $18 a month and includes one 9ml travel spray and access to premium items

Luxury Scent Box also gives active members the option to upgrade your subscription to the Duo plan, which includes two perfumes per month.

This is a review of the $30 Duo Plan.

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.

Luxury Scent Box May 2019 - Shay and Blue White Peaches

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.

Luxury Scent Box May 2019 - Shay and Blue Blueberry Musk

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).

  1. We love this subscription. Awesome customer service and large selection to pick perfume.

  2. Received my 2nd month and love the perfume. Great service ❤️

    • Best selection to choose a scent. I have tried all fragrance sub boxes and this one is my favorite. It’s a good size, mine last over a month.

  3. Love receiving mine every month. High quality service as I’m a subscription box junkie!!!!!!

  4. Subscribed for my wife and myself, we both enjoy Luxury Scent Box each month. 👍🏻

    • My daughter and I signed up we love receiving new fragrances each month.

  5. Luxury Scent Box is Highly recommended on so many levels. I was originally Reffered by a friend. It’s convenient to take it in my purse and love the fact I get a new perfume every month without spending a ton of money on a large size. Customer service is great, and shipping is prompt.

  6. Signed up with Luxury Scent Scent Box. The service is great been with them for over 6 months. Customer service phone support was helpful when I needed help with my account.

  7. I wanted to like this company, but inconsistency and crappy customer service has me running for the hills. Also be sure to check out there BBB complaints.

  8. I wish I could find a good one that has stuff that isn’t so old. One that has all the new stuff to try also. Bc I never finish a full bottle, I still got scentbird bottles bc I was getting 2 at a time. But it wasnt stuff like flower bomb or Jadore. I found someone that sells spray bottles on mercari and got from her and it was nice glass sprays. I need to try and find her again. Bc u could get small glass spray to larger ones at a good price..

    • Love this company! I have tried Luxury Scent Box, Scentbird and Scentbox. Luxury Scent Box and Scentbird are legit. If I have to choose, Luxury Scent Box if the one for me. Will be a customer for life. Been a customer for over a year now. They have excellent customer service and a better value as they have the largest size in a travel. Good selection to choose form with high end fragrances and tons of exclusive ones I never heard of. ‘Luxury’ all the way!

  9. I had a bad time with scentbird , the first month was great. But then they got behind like 4 r 5 months so I couldnt cancel r I would just lose my money bc they wouldnt refund me. So I waited til I got all that I paid for which was month’s later. I never got but 1 bottle. I told them I need one and they finally sent it and I canceled!!!! Very bad business. They would email and say sorry it got lost and ask me did I change my address well no I havnt . It was alot of bull. I’m glad I got out of that!! So be careful!

  10. I have Scentbird & Scentbox. The sizes are identical. They both can be removed from the atomizers & can be unscrewed to either refill them with the same scent or wash them out & refill with a different scent. My only complaint about Scentbird (been with them 3-1/2 yrs now) is they moved 1 yr ago this month & their shipping is horrendous! I used to get my about mid month. Now, I have to complain every month that they keep it in a pending stage almost all month. Then they rush it out so I can receive it right at the end of month. And they’ve discontinued many of my favorites in my queue because of no demand. If they keep it up, I won’t have any favorites! Scentbox offers returns & exchanges & gives you “money” every month based on your monthly membership. You save it then use it towards a scent of your choice. And their selections contain many familiar prestige scents.

  11. I haven’t tried Scentbox yet. I’m tempted though because I love trying out new perfumes. I currently sub to Scentbird. I’ve yet to have an issue with them 🤷🏻‍♀️ I’ve heard people complain about shipping but mine always comes around the third week of the month without incident

    • I have had subscriptions to both and find that if I had to choose between them I’d choose Scentbox. One reason is that Scentbox sent me a case e-v-e-r-y month.
