Scentbird Fragrance Discovery

It's hard for me to commit, to a fragrance. When I go to Sephora I smell every fragrance they have. Comparing, re-spraying and getting confused about what I actually liked. Then I go through a phase where I can't even smell anymore cause I've tried so many. It can be overwhelming and hard to commit to shelling out a hundred dollars.

Scentbird is a New York based fragrance subscription service. Scentbird sends a generous sample of one of their 350+ designer fragrances to your door once a month for a small fee. After completing a scent personality quiz Scentbird finds fragrances that best fit your personality. If you don't want their recommendations, choose any perfume you'd like. Scentbird gifted Cute LA a free month, which came with a refillable designer case. It was a fun process and I ended up getting MARC JACOBS' "Daisy" which I love.

A question I always had was, "what do the different concentrations mean on the fragrance labels?"  Here's a quick breakdown, for next time you're shopping for the perfect scent.

  • Parfum or Perfume: Usually the most expensive and potent in terms of concentration. Longest wear on the skin, often lasting the entire day.
  • Eau de Parfum: Less potent than perfume but still a good concentration. Lasts up to 6 hours.
  • Eau de Toilette: This the most popular style of fragrance because it's reasonable. It's a light scent for shorter wear on the skin - about 2-3 hours.
  • Eau de Cologne: The least concentrated, wear on the skin is up to 2 hours.

Commodity Premium Fragrances [Fitting Kit]

COMMODITY Premium Fragrances

Working in advertising, I'm obsessed with companies who take pride in their branding and design. Commodity Fragrances, has been a favorite in terms of aesthetics since their kickstarter campaign. From packaging, website, social media, and product they do everything beautifully. 

Commodity creates unique perfumes and colognes that you can try at home with their unique fitting kits. Each kit contains ten samples, ranging from Paper to Whiskey and cost $9 dollars. However, as a bonus, you'll receive a promo code applying the $9 as a credit towards a full bottle. So in essence, the fitting kit is FREE. For the Commodity fitting kit, I cut strips of paper, wrote the name of each scent, then sprayed accordingly. My favorite turned out to be the Gold fragrance, described as "Money in it's liquid form." Below you'll find Commodity's illustration describing Gold in more detail. Though, it was a close race between Pinot, Magnolia and Rain.
