Scent Trunk offers a monthly customized niche fragrance subscription service that enables men & women to find their desired scent according to their needs. Formerly just for men, they’ve expanded to women’s fragrances from this month!
The major plus of Scent Trunk is that these are not mass produced scents. These are unique and interesting. Subscribers complete a short Scent Profile Quiz, The subscriber’s answers are used to determine a recommendation and will receive three niche samples for the month, from fragrance categories that may be of interest.
The shipment arrived in a padded envelope. Inside was a small, square box with a drawstring black bag that held three scent samples and their description cards with helpful tips.
There are three information cards once for each perfume samples I received. They talk a little about the scent itself. It also lists the time of day and the longevity and sillage of the perfume. (Sillage for those who do not know is how potent a scent is to others) I love these little cards, I often forget what is in a scent or the details about it. As per the company these artists use real botanicals and essences rather than the phthalates and synthetic chemicals you can find in fragrances at department stores. The result is unique, and high quality fragrance.
My favorite of the three, Femme Supreme is a sheer floral scent with soft notes of magnolia, jasmine and white musk. Lasts a long time and really prefer it during the day time.
Lady Cool opens with a fresh floral and sweet scent and then evolves into a warm woody notes. I felt this is similar to many fresh and summery fragrance, but I will definitely use it in coming months.
Sarabecca Day is a blend of Lilly and Jasmine. I wanted to like this one, but it just smelled very old fashioned, not in a good way. If you really love florals, you may like it, but sadly it just wasn’t for me.
So here you can see how big/small your sample perfume would be. They vary in size and I was really wondering why would the sample sizes be so different, till I got this answer from Scent truck.
The fragrance oil is what makes a scent rich, and long-lasting. Different fragrances have different amounts of oil and this affects its longevity. Here are the different types of fragrances and the amount of oil in them:
- Eau Fraiche: 3% or less
- Eau de Cologne: 2 – 5%
- Eau de Toilette: 4 – 10%
- Eau de Parfum: 8 – 15%
- Soie de Parfum: 15 – 18%
- Parfum: 15 – 25%
Coming to the subscription itself, since it launched for Women just this month, I want to give a little more details on Scent Trunk.
Subscribers can explore the numerous scents provided by Scent Trunk, and if they fall in love with one of the fragrances in their Trunk, they can purchase a larger bottle directly from Scent Trunk’s website, which earns them rewards and discounts for future use. Scent Trunk also includes a feedback survey each month, enabling a subscriber’s Scent Profile to evolve as time goes by. They also feature many giveaways and contest to their subscribers. Currently they are hosting a giveaway of full size bottle of your favorite niche fragrance, which is cool.
Final thoughts about the box: I think Scent Trunk is curating some excellent perfume choices – many of which are aren’t available in department stores. I love perfume so I am super happy with this subscription! I think this is a neat idea who want to experiment without having to go to a million stores and sniff around. These aren’t scents you will run into at Macy’s or Sephora (at least not the ones around me) and is a fun way to switch things up scent wise!
Overall really truly absolutely enjoyed the first and the second perfume!
If you looking to sample some fragrances before invest into them then you would love these.
