11 Best Cologne Subscription Boxes

A scent can say so much. Fresh and crisp, an energetic burst of citrus, or seductive vanilla and musk… what you wear on your skin says as much about you as the clothes you wear, so who wouldn’t want to have a signature scent? A cologne or perfume that not only compliments your chemistry but matches your personality as well? Trouble is, actually finding that signature scent often comes with time and expense – no one wants to shell out their hard-earned money on a full-size bottle of designer fragrance, only to discover it doesn’t work for them. Or even worse, take the time and care to pick out a new fragrance gift for someone special, only to have it not work out for your giftee. This is where monthly subscription boxes come in. Cologne shopping can be a gamble – but a perfume or cologne subscription box takes the guesswork out, delivering a range of options on a monthly or quarterly basis. Whether you’re shopping for yourself or giving a gift, a fragrance subscription service allows you to try out samples – and sometimes full-size! – colognes without the designer price tag. With a range of price points, these monthly boxes make the perfect gift – even if that gift is to yourself! Read on to discover 11 of our favorite perfume and cologne subscriptions to find the best cologne subscription for you.

I have tried most of these, Perfume.com Fragrance of the Month is my favorite. The price, the selections, the atomizers… it is the best value IMO. Would love to see reviews!

Joy

I’ve really been enjoying my Wicked Good Scent Club subscription lately. Lots of different scents and products to try.

Julie O’Boyle-Sharp

That’s awesome to hear Joy, I haven’t tried Wicked Good myself but always hear consistently positive things about it.

LJ

I really like Phlur, but what’s posted isn’t entirely true. That sample set specifically states it’s not a subscription. It is not reoccurring. Now you can subscribe to regular bottle delivery, which is no where even close to $18 a month.

Julie O’Boyle-Sharp

Thanks for the clarification, Lj, I realize now my wording wasn’t correct. But glad to hear you like Phlur! I love their packaging/aesthetic.

Laura

Scents Event is also a great option that no one ever talks about… they have 3 different subscription tiers Regular (designer); Special (designer/niche) and Luxury (mostly niche and designer private collections). Plus, you have the option to purchase decants as well :))

Julie O’Boyle-Sharp

Thank you for the recommendation, Laura!
