Finding a new fragrance can be difficult. It took me two years to find Flower Bomb by Viktor & Rolf and Prada Infusion D’Iris. Both of these fragrances smell amazing, but I would love to add a few more to my repertoire.
Whenever I go searching for a new fragrance, I always give it a little spritz on my wrist. I then end up leaving the store to go scrub it off with soap and water. For the rest of the day, I swear I’m haunted by that awful perfume smell.
Can anyone else relate?
A few weeks ago, I stumbled upon Scentbird, a perfume subscription service.
How does Scentbird work?
Like most subscription service, you’re first prompted to create a style profile. To get started I filled out the TruScent Recommender. This is a database full of thousands of scent profiles and perfume reviews by real people. What I liked most about this process is you don’t have to choose the recommended option. You can also just browse by brand, mood, occasion or personality.
You can retake the TruScent Recommender at any time, and rate fragrances. The more you rate the better your recommendations.
I’m a big fan of product reviews and almost always read them when shopping. Scentbird works the same way. I reviewed my recommendations but chose to go with something else based on the scent and reviews.
What I Received
I chose Bvlgari Omnia Crystalline. This fragrance consists of lotus, musk, black tea, bamboo, and pear. It is described as being elegant and having a fresh scent. My good friend Mil also wears it but I have to say, I wasn’t a fan. I wanted to love this fragrance, and the reviews were good, but it just didn’t work for me. The scent just smelled too perfume-y and strong. Maybe it’s just my body chemistry. I’ll continue to wear for a while to see if I adjust to it.
What do you get?
Scentbird’s subscription runs $14.95 a month and can be canceled at any time. Best of all you get a generous sized 8 ml bottle (a ~30 day supply). It comes in a super cute reusable case and glass bottle. Each month you get to choose from 450+ designer and niche fragrances.
I would definitely try Scentbird again and sign up for a monthly subscription. My mom loves fragrances and this would make a great gift.
Visit Scentbird to sign up and take the TruScent Recommender. What is your favorite fragrance? I would love to add them to my list.
