There are two subscription options:

  • The Premium Plan for $20 a month and includes one 9 mL travel spray and access to premium items

LUXSB also gives active members the option to upgrade your subscription to the Duo plan, which includes one case and two premium or non-premium perfumes per month.

LUXSB May 2020 Review

 

There were some instructions for using the holder.

 

There was also a card with more information about the fragrance and the perfumer.

 

The fragrances come with a little velour bag if you want to protect the vials in your purse.

On to the fragrance:

 

I’Khana by Source Adage – Estimated Value $28.80 (Buy a full-size 50 mL bottle for $160)

I’ll say right up front that I’m really happy about this one on several levels:

1. This is a new perfumer for me. Their scents have names in various indigenous languages (this one is from Choctaw) and are inspired by geographical locations, which I think is fun. I’m seriously considering ordering this discovery set to try a few more. (OK, they were having a sale and there was free shipping on samples so I did just buy it while in the middle of writing this review.)

2. The value is great. This is one of the better values I’ve seen from a perfume subscription in some time, it’s like two months of the monthly subscription cost.

3. The fragrance itself is right up my alley. Notes include grapefruit, lime, and mandarin, as well as pink peppercorn, coconut, cardamom, and musk. Grapefruit is my favorite citrus note and this one is fairly musky as well (it’s unisex, as my preferred fragrances tend to be). The pink peppercorn and cardamom are nice as well — I am a fan of spicy scents, in general. Overall, the blend works well. The sillage was fairly strong (my cats didn’t want treats from me after I put this on…) although the longevity was maybe a little shorter than expected.

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. How often you get a new holder depends on your subscription plan.

Verdict: The estimated value of my fragrance this month is $28.80. This is a really good value but also I am happy with the fragrance. LUXSB is probably the best perfume subscription for my personal tastes as far as their scents of the month lining up with what I’m looking for and like in a fragrance.  Others will have hits and misses (again, according to my personal taste) but LUXSB has consistently for the past few months been wonderful for me. If you like unisex fragrances and/or are not such a fan of florals, and if you like discovering new fragrance brands, this may be a good subscription to check out.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Yes, all you have to do is choose this fragrance.

COUPON: Use code MSA35 to save 35% off your first order.

Value Breakdown: This subscription is $15/monthly and this month, I received $28.80 worth of fragrance (but again, this is highly variable based on what scent you choose).

  1. Any one have comments about their customer service, reliable shipping, etc.? Scentbird is the iffiest so far imo. I’ve enjoyed and had zero problems with Scentbox.

    • I have had great customer service the few times I needed. When I first signed up had some questions on fragrances and received a quick and helpful response. In my last shipment there was a card for a fragrance but I could not find it on the website. I contacted them and within a couple of hours received a response and they had put the fragrance into my calendar for me. Shipping seems to be consistent and timely.

    • Lately they’ve been kind of flakey in mailing stuff out. I have an item that was ready to ship in mid August and it’s September 2nd and I don’t have a tracking number. I had something similar happen the previous month and they blamed COVID for having a delayed shipping issue.

  2. I’m still so torn by all the different perfume subs, but definitely leaning this way because of your review. Unisex and masculine scents tend to work well with me!

    • I had also been reading all the reviews on different perfume subs and this ended up being my pick. Ragan was very helpful in answering questions for me and we seem to have similar scent likes. I also prefer more unisex scents and so far have been very pleased with what I have received. I think you would not be disappointed.

      • Thank you Connie! I appreciate your input!

  3. Thanks to your reviews this is my second month subscribing and am very happy with the variety of fragrances to choose from. The scent you received is on my calendar for next month. Plus I also went and purchased the discovery set plus a room spray. I really appreciate your thorough, fair reviews.

    • Thanks. I don’t even know what I am doing purchasing more perfume when I’m barely leaving the house but I guess my cats and puppy can enjoy it…
