Scentbird a Fragrance Subscription Service!

Are you growing tired of the same ‘ol beauty subscription boxes? I am. Listen to this though, beauties: I’ve discovered a fragrance subscription box, how cool is that? I love changing up my fragrance not only seasonally but also to keep things interesting and a little bit mysterious too. Scentbird is the smart girl’s way to smell amazing and still be fiscally responsible. For only $14.95 a month, you get a monthly supply of the perfume of your dreams and I’m not talking “inspired by” drugstore crap–I’m mean 100% authentic designer and niche perfumes on your doorstep!

In the words off Andy Warhol:

“Smell really is transporting. Seeing, hearing, touching, tasting are just not as powerful as smelling if you want your whole being to go back for a second to something. It’s a neat way to reminisce.” 

I totally agree! A sniff of lemon blossom and coconut and I am back at the Southern California beaches of my youth or the scent of gardenia brings back memories of the best date I ever had. Fragrance is a powerful sense that creates powerful emotions.

With Scentbird you don’t have to feel guilty about spending those hard earned Benjamins on an expensive new fragrance every month. With your $14.95/mo. subscription you can choose from over 300 designer perfumes and monthly new arrivals.

You’ll get:

  •  8 ml purse spray of any fragrance of your choice (enough perfume to apply daily for a whole month)
  • A custom perfume case to protect your perfume. Just drop the purse spray we ship you every month into the case, twist to close and you are good to go!

You build your own queue in the order you would like to receive your perfumes in. If you have not made a selection, the monthly featured scent is shipped. You can modify the queue 2 weeks before the scheduled shipment. Update your perfume wardrobe monthly or stick to an old favorite! There are no hidden fees and shipping is included with the price of membership. Scentbird currently ships only to the Continental US. They will be adding Alaska, Hawaii, US territories, and APO/FPO/DPO addresses. Shipments go out around the 15th of every month. You will receive your order 5-7 business days after it ships.

There is a short, three question survey and then they ask for three of your favorite scents to get an idea of your tastes–don’t worry there is an extensive list (including images) to choose from. After that, suggestions are made and you start your queue.

For my first month, I chose Anna Sui La Vie de Boheme. Anna says:

 “The La Vie de Bohème lifestyle always evolves, but the constant remains the same. And that is always a woman who is a bit defiant, a bit romantic, a bit artistic. In essence, it’s truly the modern woman. Yes, the signature look may be mixed patterns, flowing dresses, boots, floppy hats, but every generation brings its own attitude to it, a unique expression of personal style.”

Hey, she described me! This scent is a perfect mix of florals with a woody base. Notes include rose, pear, red fruit, dragon fruit, magnolia, peony, freesia, white wood, skin musk, raspberry, vanilla and sandalwood accord. La Vie De Boheme opens with feminine florals blend of pink, rich burgundy and berry kiss electrifying, sensual woods. The result is playful yet mysterious. This bottle is absolutely gorgeous, but remember you are NOT getting the bottle with Scentbird, if you like the juice more than the bottle, Scentbird is for you! You will receive an atomizer like this:

This little baby is pretty cool, actually. One twist and the spray top pops up but otherwise it is safely tucked away which is great for a purse or makeup bag!

The Scentbird website is VERY well done with images and descriptions of all the perfumes available–and that’s a LOT! You can search by the typical categories of  brand, bestsellers and new arrivals OR by scent type, personality or occasion which is really fun! You can also choose “recommended for you” and a group will pop up. If you rate the perfumes you receive, the recommendations will change and evolve.

Bottom Line: Scentbird is an affordable way to satisfy your expensive fragrance cravings on a budget. Or, if like me, you enjoy changing up your scents, this is a great way to try new fragrances without the costly investment! These are 100% real designer fragrances for fashionable and savvy girls like us! Highly recommended!
