Scentbird | Monthly Perfume Subscription Service
I'm a self-professed perfume lover. You can get a blurry idea of just how many perfumes I have if you look above the Scentbird envelope. Yeah....
So naturally, Scentbird is maybe the most exciting subscription service I've stumbled upon as of late! Listen up, perfume-lovers, because you're going to LOVE this idea.
For $15 a month, you get a generous vial of perfume that plugs in to the sleek black holder you see above. You get the holder with your first month's delivery, and the next months you'll receive just the scent vial which you can swap in to the holder.
You get complete control over what perfume you receive, and you can build a log of perfumes that you want to receive each month on the Scentbird website. There are over 350 designer fragrances that are completely authentic. Each sample is enough to last you a month, and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised at how large the vials are; they are 0.27 oz... for reference, a rollerball typically has about 0.34 oz. Not bad, eh?
For my first month, I chose Roses de Chloe by Chloe. I love the Chloe perfume, and I love roses so this was a complete no-brainer for me. This is a fresh scent, but not overly rosey if rose isn't your thing. Kind of a bummer for me, as I really do love rose, but I have to say I enjoy this scent a lot. It's classy and elegant, with notes of bergamot, musk and amber joined with rose. If you like scents such as Miss Dior Cherie, or Chance by Chanel, this will be up your alley.
I love that I got a chance to sample this before splurging on a full-size or rollerball. I completely expected to be head over heels for this perfume, and while I do really like it, I don't need to run out to buy it. Once I get through my original Chloe rollerballs, I just might get Roses de Chloe to have in my collection.
If you love perfume and don't like to spend tons of money on full-size bottles, or if you already have too many (like me!) and really can't justify the money on another perfume in your collection but still want to sample, Scentbird is for you! You can start your subscription at Scentbird.com!
Next up on my list to try? Hermes' Kelly Caleche, Givenchy Very Irresistable Electric Rose, and Jimmy Choo Stars just to name a few. What would you try?
