Scent Trunk Review

When it comes to anything beauty related, I'm the kind of person who loves to try new things. Whether it be new blushes and eye shadows, skincare products or nail polishes..I'll try anything once. But the one thing I always feel a little intimidated by is perfumes. I know absolutely nothing about them except that I like this and don't like that. So when I heard about Scent Trunk I was extremely excited!

Scent Trunk is a unique subscription service that allows you to customize your scent profile and have your perfect fragrances sent to you each month. And the coolest thing, I think, is that they don't just send you any old perfume sample, they give you exclusive fragrances from brands you can't find almost anywhere else!
When I first checked out scent trunk, they were only for men. But they recently added an option for women!

Scent Trunk was nice enough to send me a few samples to check out and share with you guys! The box is cute and little, and got to me in just a few days. Inside you'll find 3 sample size spray tubes inside a little velvety bag and information cards on each scent telling you what time of day and which seasons the scents are best in as well as a few other things about the scent.

For the Men's scents I just gave them a spritz & a whiff and will tell you what I think..I'm not brave enough to walk around with men's cologne on all day.  The scents in my box included:
Yesterday Haze by Imaginary Authors. - I found this scent to be quite pleasant. Not at all overpowering, which is good since the card tells you to use it liberally during the day and let it linger into the night. It has a good masculine scent but not like "lumberjack-y" so I think it would suit most men pretty well.
Blood Sweat Tears by Aterlier de Geste. - This was my least favorite scent out of the trio. The card describes it as pungent yet sweet and hypnotic. But to me it smells like an old church. I probably wouldn't recommend this scent to anyone I'd have to be around all day. Hahah
Cyber Garden by CoStume National. - This is probably my favorite scent in the reminds me somewhat of a cologne I've smelled before (that i don't know the name of) but is completely its own scent. I wouldn't mind smelling it on a man. :P

The women's scnets (since I'm a woman!) I actually got to try out and wear to get an idea of how I like them. I didn't take the personalization test to find my perfect scents, so these were just random scents. The scents in the women's box included:
Safanad by Parfumes de Marly. - I really like this scent, it's probably my favorite out of the three. It doesn't smell like something I'd typically wear (but thats one of the great things about Scent Trunk, you can try all different things you wouldnt normally wear!) It kind of has a sophisticated, older woman quality about it. Like something a middle aged professional business woman type would wear. (And I mean that in a good way.)
Panda by Zoologist. - I'm not really a fan of this one. The scent reminds me of a Chinese restaurant. Which kind of makes sense because it says it has the scent of bamboo and zisu leaves. It's not bad, but I wouldn't personally wear it.
Pauline by Rance1795. - I'm not sure if I really like this one or not. It has a familiarity to it that I can't quite pinpoint, but theres also something about it that I'm not really that into..

I didn't find any of the scents to be horrible, but there were a few that I wouldn't personally wear. But the good thing about it is you can go on the site and personalize your subscription so you will get the scents you like.
