Scentbird October 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 what is basically an advertising flyer for this month’s scent, “Gia” by Tocca.
Gia by Tocca – Estimated Value $12.16 (buy 50 mL for $76)
Scents of the month can be hit or miss for me but this one was right up my alley. Base notes include amber, sandalwood, and vanilla, which are three of my favorites (especially sandalwood). Mid notes include rose which is probably my favorite floral note. Top notes include pink peppercorn, which I also usually like, and tangerine, which isn’t super apparent on me. (People on Fragrantica seem not to like this one so much, but what’s more important is that I like it!)
This lasted an average length of time (probably wouldn’t have hurt to reapply in the middle of the day but I have enough going on that I rarely remember to do that) and if applied in reasonable proportions, sillage is such that my coworkers aren’t annoyed. I have actually worn this to work several times since I received this package.
FYI, this is a new fragrance (launched just this year). Scentbird’s “scent of the month” is generally something fairly recent, which I appreciate.
Verdict: The estimated value of my fragrance this month is $12.16. This is a little below the cost of the subscription but I am always happy to receive a scent that works for me, even if it costs a little less — there is value in the match-up for me, and less risk than buying a full-size bottle you haven’t sampled first. If you want to maximize value, all you have to do is add more expensive fragrances to your queue.
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 $12.16 worth of fragrance (but again, this is highly variable based on what scent or product you choose).
