Skylar Scent Club Review + 50% Off Coupon – November 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!

November 2019 Skylar Scent of the Month: By Firelight
This is my fourth month of this subscription and I am still SO impressed with the gorgeous packaging. Each rollerball scent “book” lives in a beautiful row on my desk, and I only wish I had signed up earlier so I would have scents 1-3 to complete the collection. Inside the book is a note on the fragrance itself as well as layering recommendations with other Skylar scents.
Each month Skylar selects a charity to donate a portion of their Scent Club proceeds to. This month it is the Movemeant Foundation.
At Movemeant Foundation, we empower girls and women by providing them with resources, opportunities and experiences to use physical movement as a tool to build confidence and self-worth.
It’s worth noting that Skylar scents are hypoallergenic, phthalate-free, paraben-free, and cruelty-free. They are also made in the US (in Los Angeles, to be exact!) and have no synthetic dyes. If you are someone who is super ingredient-conscious and wants more info, check out the Skylar Dirty List and their perfume philosophy.
Let’s check out this month’s scent!
By Firelight, 10 ml – Retail Value $29.00 ($20.00 for club members)
Scent Notes: Pinion Pine, Fresh Vetiver, Sweet Amber
“Light and shadow waltzed around the room. As the fire crackled, she felt comfort and warmth.”
I love fire-inspired scents, especially as the days start to get colder and colder. As someone who truly loathes winter, cold-season scents are one of the little luxuries that make it more bearable, like hot chocolate, and cashmere sweaters! I was certain I would like this scent before I even opened it because I absolutely love vetiver. It has a complex earthiness that is so attractive to my nose. Paired with pine? I knew this was a winner. What I wasn’t expecting was for this to remind me so much of the beloved Skylar September Scent, Wanderlust! This is a good thing, as I am pretty obsessed with that fragrance. They share notes of evergreens and complex earthy notes. The main difference is that the September violet note is gone and in its place is a firey glowing amber. That spicy amber takes center stage in this month’s rollie, but that undercurrent of woods is beautifully obvious, providing a grounding effect for what could easily be too sweet or honeyed without it. Together they form a lovely contradiction of earth and heat, which is, of course, exactly what fire is.
I applied each of these scents to one wrist and sniffed throughout the day. You would never mistake the two fragrances for one another, but there is some deep down DNA that certainly intertwines them. I expect that if you enjoyed Wanderlust as much as I did, you will love this molten golden version very much too. It is a great fall to winter fragrance and, like all of the Skylar scents, is surprising, somehow familiar, and altogether new.
Skylar perfumes usually feel lighter than so many others due to the natural and clean ingredients used to make them. This one has a ton of staying power and great sillage on my skin. It lasted all day! This could be totally different for you, as skin chemistry plays a huge role in these factors.
Verdict: Skylar continues to delight me. I feel like each month my verdict is always glowing, and this is for good reason. I really, really enjoy this subscription. It is such a delight for anyone who loves perfumes and if you are looking for clean scents? Bonus! This month’s scent was perfect for these chilled days between fall and winter. It smelled complex, glowing, and feminine. I am utterly charmed by the creativity of the Skylar team to create such unique but totally wearable scents that feel so timely and special.
