Skylar Scent Club Review + 50% Off Coupon – September 2019
The founder, Cat, became especially conscious of product ingredients while working for The Honest Company and quickly realized she couldn’t find a truly clean perfume she enjoyed. She also realized tons of other perfume lovers were looking for the same thing, so Skylar was born!

September 2019 Skylar Scent of the Month: Wanderlust
This is my third month of this subscription and I am again blown away by the gorgeous and thoughtful packaging. Each month the rollerball comes in a little scent “book” complete with a bookmark you can store inside with space to jot down your thoughts about each fragrance.

Scent Notes: Papyrus, Virginia Cedar, Violet Leaves
I knew I would love this perfume as soon as I saw the booklet was covered in trees. As a general rule of thumb, a lovely little tree placed on anything scented has never, ever lead me wrong! I adore woodsy fragrances because they are so deep and moody, but still very nature-oriented. They are also usually quite sexy too!
This is one of my favorite scents ever. It is like they went into my brain and thought “What would Megan like to smell like?” and came up with this perfume. One of my other favorite perfume notes is violets because they are so floral but have a delicate powder element. In this case, they blend beautifully with the grounded cedar notes into something feminine but incredibly self-assured and sophisticated. The dry papyrus notes make this scent just a little off-kilter, and there is something here that reminds me of the incredibly popular Commodity Book perfume, which was one of my faves (RIP, darling) or even somewhat of cult-favorite Santal 33, but less serious and significantly lighter.
Skylar perfumes usually feel lighter than so many others due to the natural and clean ingredients used to make them. The only thing I was a little disappointed in with this scent was that it has a pretty weak staying power and moderate sillage on my skin. This could be totally different for you, as skin chemistry plays a huge role in these factors. I still adore the scent enough to justify reapplication every so often, and the easy travel-friendly rollerball makes this a breeze.
Verdict: Skylar is easily one of my favorite subscriptions right now. The whole experience of unboxing such gorgeous packaging and exploring a new scent each month is irresistible to a perfume junkie like myself. The September scent was exceptional. It had some of my very favorite notes and is a perfect “between” season sort of scent. I highly recommend it and really hope that Skylar just makes this a regular perfume so I can buy a full-size bottle. More like this! Can’t wait to see and smell next month.
