I’m a pretty big fragrance fanatic– Okay, hoarder & junkie may be better terms–so when I heard about Scentbird Perfume Service, I was eager to check it out!
Scentbird is a New York based perfume and fragrance subscription company that delivers customers a 30 day supply of the fragrance of their choice every month for $14.95. (Stay tuned, because at the bottom of this post, there’s a special coupon code!)
Personally, I like to sample before I buy fragrances, so sometimes I’m a little leery about blindly purchasing a perfume online or from a catalog, but upon signing up for Scentbird, I was directed to take a quiz that is designed to help match me to the types of fragrances I’d probably gravitate towards.
After taking the quiz, it showed my best fragrance matches, and I was able to select which one I’d like to try. However, if none of those caught my interest, I was able to select from all of the other ones on the site.. Scentbird has over 350 fragrances to choose from, and they’re all designer fragrances– no imposters.
You can load up your queue up with fragrances and a new one will be delivered every month. You’re allowed to cancel at any time.
The first month, your Scentbird purse spray arrives in a luxury metal case inside a velvet pouch.
The size of the purse spray is 8 ml- about the size of a rollerball. It’s designed to last for a month’s worth of use, but, I like to change up my fragrances depending upon my mood, so I can see mine lasting a lot longer.
To use your fragrance, you twist the metal canister until the spray top pops up, then you twist it the opposite way to close. Just like a tube of lipstick.
Next month when you receive your new fragrance, you can twist open the canister, pop the glass vial out, then replace it with the new one.
The fragrance I chose was Donna Karan: DKNY Be Delicious. I have a confession to make, though. I KNOW the idea of Scentbird is treating yourself to discovering new fragrances, but I totally was aware of what Be Delicious smelled like already as it’s a pretty popular scent. I actually have been meaning to buy it for myself for awhile, but you know how we moms tend to put ourselves on the back burner sometimes and find it hard to indulge a little! Sometimes I just have a hard time justifying my fragrance purchase costs when I probably own enough already. Scentbird was kind to send this to me complimentary for this review, but if they hadn’t, I could justify spending the $14.95 for a month’s supply for sure over the price of a full bottle, however.
The only downside to Scentbird, in my opinion, is that I really love collecting the bottles my perfumes come in. For me, it’s just part of the total experience of owning a fragrance. The main subject of DKNY Be Delicious is Granny Smith Apples, which they designed the bottle to look like. Totally cute to me and I’m missing out on adding that to my collection! However, although the bottle was initially what caught my attention, the fragrance is what ultimately won me over, so I’m happy to own that. Eventually, I will probably buy this for myself. Eventually, I will probably buy this for myself. Eventually, I will probably buy this for myself. (if I type it enough, maybe I will do it, haha!).
DKNY- Be Delicious Review-
- Top notes: Green Apple, Cucumber, Grapefruit (The cucumber balances out the bitterness of the apple and grapefruit, making it feel crisp and warm)
- Middle notes: (After the first impression has worn off)-Woodsy and a soft Floral (magnolia)
- Bottom notes (The fragrance that lingers): Woodsy, Rose, Amber
