My Honest Take on Scentbird’s Fragrance Wonderland

I have a confession to make: when it comes to perfumes, I’m a complete designer snob. 🙈 But keeping up with my love for them can be not-so-budget-friendly, to say the least. That's why discovering Scentbird, with its access to over 700 designer scents starting at just $16.95, plus a 50% discount on the first month, felt like a dream come true.

But did it live up to my high expectations? Here's my candid review of this much-talked-about fragrance subscription service.

How Scentbird Works

Let’s start with the basics so you understand how it works. The process is straightforward: take a quiz, pick your fragrance, and receive a travel-friendly 8 mL bottle, perfect for about 140 sprays.

And it isn’t just a random selection. You get to choose from their crazy range of fragrances, including top names like Dolce & Gabbana, Marc Jacobs, Tom Ford, Acqua di Parma, and so many more!

Once you make your selection, you’ll receive your Scentbird box with the number of fragrances you opted for. It doesn’t get more convenient than that.

First Impressions

I certainly have my favorite fragrances, but I’m also open to exploring new ones. Since I had over 500 fragrances to choose from, I trusted the Scentbird team and let them surprise me with their fragrance picks based on my quiz responses.

The result? A curated selection of their best sellers, including both feminine and masculine scents, which I gladly shared with my husband.

They introduced me to a world of fragrances I might have never encountered otherwise. From the deep, woody notes of a bold, masculine scent to the fresh, nostalgic essence of a vanilla-centric unisex perfume, each selection was a revelation.

The standout, however, was a scent that captured the essence of modern glamor – a testament to the quality of choices Scentbird offers. Hint: It was a fragrance by Oscar De La Renta!

How It’s Been Going

Apart from the allure of trying luxury fragrances every month, Scentbird's practicality has really impressed me. The 8 mL vials provide me with enough perfume to last the entire month, and the sleek travel case design has made it easy to carry my scent of the day, wherever I go.

On top of that, I can keep “curating” my preferences by rating each fragrance I tried. Over time, Scentbird keeps optimizing and narrowing down my preferences to surprise me with even more personalized picks every month.

And best of all, it’s flexible with my lifestyle! The subscription still allows me to make adjustments in both the number of scents I receive and the frequency of my deliveries. This way, I’ve not been tied to a specific subscription each month. I get to switch it up depending on my plans and preferences.

So, Was Scentbird Worth It?

Scentbird is an excellent option for those who love to explore different scents. For someone like me, who enjoys the thrill of discovering new fragrances but is wary of the investment, Scentbird is a perfect fit.

It offers the chance to test and enjoy high-end fragrances at a fraction of the cost. I think opting for three vials every three months strikes the best balance, giving ample time to try each fragrance.

Starting at just $16.95 per month and with a tempting 50% off your first month, it's an irresistible proposition for any perfume lover.
