An Affordable Way To Enjoy Designer Fragrances

Scentbox is a fun way for men and women to explore fragrances each and every month at a very affordable price. Each month Scentbox sends you through the mail a .27 ounce/8 ml bottle with an atomizer of your choice from their collection of over 750 authentic designer scents along with a signature keepsake box.

In my Scentbox review, I hope to fully explain how it works and its many benefits. Plus offer a 50% off coupon for your first month (see below).

Why A Subscription-Based Fragrance Makes Sense?

We all know quality fragrances can be quite expensive. Right?

Thankfully, there is a cheaper a better way to test and try out new scents, without the commitment of buying an expensive full bottle and not knowing if you really like it. I find I have to wear the scent at least 3 to 5 times before I really know. As everybody’s body chemistry is different and fragrances smell different on everybody’s skin.

Find A Fragrance You Like

From my own personal experience, I know I have at least five full bottles of colognes, which I will never use again. Good money wasted. Why? Well, because I blindly bought them, without first trying them out on my skin.

This can be avoided with a monthly subscription-based company, like Scentbox. To explore and find exciting new scents, and to test out on your skin to see if it agrees with you.

How Many Sprays In A Scentbox 30 Day Supply?

With the monthly 0.27 oz bottle, you can expect to get in were between 120 to 140 sprays. If you used the spray four times a day this should easily last an entire month and then some. Depending on the amount you spray, and the days you wear a fragrance.

Sleek and sexy atomizer. Easily fits in your pocket or purse.

  • You get an amazing atomizer, which disperses a good spray of your fragrance every time.
  • The ability to expand your scent wardrobe. Let’s face it; some scents don’t always go for occasion or season. Having a minimum of 10 fragrances, you love readily available to match your mood or setting adds versatility to your life.

  • Avoid the annoying and pushy salesperson at the mall.
  • Highly affordable, starting at just $13.95 (even cheaper see Promo Code below). Most people can easily afford this.

  • The ability to filter by brand and also filter by notes, to help make choosing a fragrance easier.
  • Easy to cancel your subscription if you decide to.
  • Stylish black atomizer included with a subscription.
  • Easily fits in your purse or pocket, to quickly refresh your scent when needed.
  • The atomizer is designed not to accidentally spray, just simply twist to spray.
  • With the first arrival of your fragrance, you receive a coupon code for 20% off Coupon for a full-size bottle of fragrance.

What’s Bad About Scentbox?

  • Even though they have a large selection (over 750), they still don’t have every brand out there. But this company has the most I’ve seen. A bigger selection is always better.
  • No Returns or Refunds on individual monthly vial size fragrances. So pick carefully.
  • Currently, only ships within the U.S. But they state they are looking to expand in the future.
  • One color (black) for the atomizer.

Final Thoughts

I’ve enjoyed sampling and exploring the quality fragrances offered at Scentbox and building my scent wardrobe so that I can match the occasion with just the right scent. The quality is here for sure at Scentbox, and definitely, the price point is.

Scentbox has allowed me personally, to find what scents work with me without blowing a gigantic hole in my wallet. For the price of a few Starbuck lattes, you can have a 30 day supply of the top designer fragrance on the market. It is so affordable and fun exploring.

  1. Hi Dan, this is a clever way of smelling good 🙂 or different at all times. I personally don’t use any perfume anymore since I believe we all have our very own unique scent. I use a Christal deodorant not to scare people away, haha, they don’t have any scent. But I think this is a really cool gift for someone who loves to try out different perfumes and I didn’t even know this exists. Very detailed and informative article. Thanks

    • I agree with you, as it is perfect way to try out the many different perfumes without having to shell out a ton of money. A great way to explore new scents. 

      Never heard of Christal deodorant. Gonna have to Google that.

  2. Hi Dan! Thanks for the detailed write up of Scentbox. I have never heard of them until I read your post. Sounds like the premium is the way to go with the additional fragrances, and with the 50% off coupon you provided, it is a heck of a deal. Do you know if there is a limit to the number of times you can change your queue in a given month?

    • Hey Mike,

      The Luxury is the way to go for me personally, as I enjoy more of the premium colognes and don’t want to be limited on what I can try. But it could be a standard for someone else, especially if you know what you like and they are offered in the Standard Subscription service. Plus you can save even more money.

      You can change your queue unlimited number of times in a month as long as you change it before the shipment date. 

      I really like this kind of service for exploring scents for not all that much money.

  3. Hi Dan, I wasn’t sure what to give dad for father’s day and came across your post. Initially, I thought Scentbox was a perfume brand. This is an interesting subscription service and I’ve seen a few for women’s makeup collection.

    Question – Do you get to choose between women and men’s fragrance during the course of subscription? As this is for dad, I just want to make sure he gets men’s stuff. Thanks!

    • If your father likes cologne this would make a wonderful gift, either to explore new scents or to just get his favorite scents. Scentbox has one of the largest collections of available scents for subscriptions.

      Yes, you can easily choose between male or female fragrances in your queue, also called your Fragrance Calendar. Often times many of the fragrances are unisex, for both male and female. A surefire method of knowing if a scent is for a women or a man is to look next to the name of the fragrance at the top of the page. It will either have a silhouette of a man or women or both. I sometimes add a perfume scent my wife wants to try to my queue. 

      Also, at the top when you click Choose Scents, a drop down menu appears in order to choose for Women or Men, making it supper easy to choose the correct gender. 

  4. l fell in love with your products as soon as l saw it because l always like to smell good. The insights you gave on this article is very helpful and cost saving.
    l personally like the Scentbox and the details you gave, where else can one buy the product apart from Amazon.

    • The cost savings, affordability, and the many vast fragrances is what makes Scentbox a real winner. Glad that this article help ya. 

      Scentbox is only available through their website and I am unaware of it being for sale on Amazon. But Amazon is a great place to find many fragrances even though they don’t carry a lot of niche fragrances. Also they don’t have smaller sizes like Scentbox, as the smaller sizes are cheaper and the best way to find and explore new scents. 

      Hope this helps.
