I have a love/hate relationship with perfume....either I hate it or I love it, but unfortunately most of the time I hate it. Perfume is actually much more complicated than it seems. Most people think that if it smells good & they spray it on themselves they will smell good. Well, I can tell you definitively that this is not always the case. You see the way your body chemistry mixes with the perfume, affects the smell & unfortunately this is most of the time,not so pleasant. I have experienced the unpleasant odor ofsomeone who has picked the wrong perfume for themselves on numerous occasions.
Enter Scentbird. Their theory is date your perfume before marrying it. For $14.95, they send you a 30 day supply of a scent you pick. They have over 450 scents to choose from. They started the company because they saw a need for trying a perfume before buying it. They were frustrated with buying expensiveperfumes & colognes, not liking them & watching them sit on their dressers & shelves collecting dust for years
I truly believe this is a great idea that will revolutionize the perfume/cologne industry! I for one am unfortunately one of those people who have bought perfumes that I do not like. They are too expensive to throw out so I leave them for years on my dresser. I love the concept of trying a new perfume every month, with no commitment of having to use it for years. If I do happen to find something I love, I can purchase more of it as well. The first tester of the scent bird perfume came & I did not like the smell at all. It was MICHAEL KORS Glam Jasmine. The good news is I can give it to a friend or throw it out with out feeling guilty as I did not invest much money in it. I like the way it is packaged in a little velvet bag. The perfume is in a vile that you twist up & spray. It is similar to opening & closing a lipstisk, It is also easy to travel with or carry in your purse. I will definitely be trying this again time after time as I love the concept ! The fact that I can try an unlimited # of fragrances makes me very happy!
