Scentbird
Scentbird is a perfume subscription for women and men. Each month, subscribers are sent 8mL vials of designer scents to sample from the refillable case that comes in your first box. Your subscription will start with a preferences quiz so that Scentbird can suggest recommendations, but you can also browse their entire catalog to select a customized queue of scents to try. Just want to explore perfumes and colognes? You can opt to be surprised every month! Scentbird also offers a skincare subscription box (starting at $14.95/month) that sends your choice of fragrance, skincare, candles, makeup, and more.

What We Love About Scentbird

  • Scentbird offers subscriptions for both men and women.

  • Their catalog of scents includes hundreds of options to choose from, and invites you to “date” the scents before “marrying” them with full-size perfumes.

  • You can choose your own subscription experience by hand-selecting fragrances you’d like to add to your queue, or let Scentbird make your selections for you.

  • Every month that you order a fragrance as a part of your subscription, you will have the opportunity to add a new refillable atomizer case for 30% off, as well a monthly credit of $15 to apply towards the purchase of a full-sized bottle.

  • The fragrances are sized to be travel-friendly and meet TSA carry-on regulations.

What You Should Know About Scentbird

  • You have to be a Scentbird subscriber to access their full catalog of fragrances.

  • Subscription orders are not eligible for returns or refunds. (If they arrive in poor condition, they can be replaced within 30 days of their delivery date.)

  • Prepaid subscriptions (3, 6, or 12 month subscriptions) cannot be cancelled mid-term. A cancellation will simply prevent auto-renewal.

We Recommend Scentbird If

  • You love designer colognes and perfumes!

  • You want to sample new fragrances on a regular basis.

  • You haven’t yet found your perfect fragrance, and would like to try many different scents before landing on your signature perfume.

  • You like a subscription that offers options for customization.

I belonged to Scentbird for approximately 3 years. I always selected my own fragrances. I never had a problem clicking and dragging to change up my own queue. The sprays were generous so I thought the $15 /month was very fair. Over that time I contacted them maybe 3 times with questions. They always answered within 24 hours. I was with them during their move. Yes, they had one or two delays but they warned me previously. I can only complain about "upgrading". I doubled the scents per month but the price more than quadrupled! I was able to cancel within a few months after that but also because I have more than enough scents now. Candles and creams are not worth the price.

Scentbird is a great subscription service. I am a perfume addict and I like picking my own scents out for my queue. The bottles last quite long, more than one month per scent, and I put perfume on s couple of times a day. I have discovered in over a year at least 3 scents that are must haves for me. Their customer service is good, I have never had any issues. The value for product you get is great if you love perfume. Definitely subscribe if you're on the fence!

I subscribed to the monthly plan in December, but I like it so much I think I should change to the yearly plan and save myself some cash. I only have three full size fragrances in my collection so I am finding this is a fantastic way to try out new fragrances and some old loves that I haven’t owned for many years and I think the size is perfect for travel or throwing in my purse. I am torn though between adding scents I want to try to my queue or just getting the perfume of the month. With the first option I will get scents I already know I love and want but the second option lets me try and be surprised by scents I would never choose on my own. Indigo by Nest is a good example, I may not have picked it but I really love it and will get it again when this one is empty. Aaaahhhhh, decisions, decisions! 😀 Anyway, I think this subscription is a great deal and possibly could be the only way I will ever buy fragrances again. I would like them to add the ability to say "never send me" to a selection and I find their website to be glitchy. Other than that, so far no complaints.

I have received this subscription box for about 5 months now. I love it! I have not had any problems at all with product or delivery. I really like the idea of having a small version of a perfume to help decide if I like the brand or not. I am cancelling this subscription, however, because I can't keep up on the monthly scents I get. I started in April and have only been able to finish off one sample. Could be a good thing but I didn't want to start accumulating unused ones.

I am on month 3 of Scentbird and I love it. I wish I would have known about it earlier. I love trying mid to higher end fragrances, and I can do it without breaking the bank. Love it.

I subscribed to this service for almost a year. The fragrances were very nice but i found their website so user-unfriendly, i gave up. I tried to delete some fragrances and bump other fragrances up to the top of the list but was never able to get the hang of it. I may subscribe again if I can get over my frustration

They have a really good selection of fragrance but skin care isnt worth it. WAs a subscriber for 2 yearsbut had to switch to another company as they double charged me and they don't respond to emails and I have to chase them on Facebook to get a response.
