I recently had the opportunity to try a month of Scentbird. As I am with most things (dessert aside), I am rather particular about perfume. In fact, until now I've only found two scents I like (Very Hollywood by Michael Kors and Tender Touch by Burberry). It's so hard to pin down exactly what you like about certain fragrances in order to find similar ones. I was eager to see if completing the scent profile at Scentbird provided me with good suggestions. I chose to try Aqua Allegoria Herba Fresca. It turned out to be a very fresh smelling fragrance with mint, lemon, and green tea in it. In the middle of winter, it's nice using this fresh scent to remind me of spring! I received a sleek case that twists up like a lipstick for application. After the first month you receive a replacement vial for the case.
You can subscribe to Scentbird for $14.95 a month (including shipping) for a 30 day supply of your pick of perfume. There are over 350 choices to chose from. This would make such a unique gift, too!
This was a fun subscription to try and I've already found one perfume I really like!

  17. The perfect winter blazer! Nicely styled, Laura.

  18. Your jacket is awesome! I had bought one similar to it at thrift store years ago, but eventually gave it up because I thought it would never be in style. I wish I had held on to it now! This outfit looks great on you and I love how you styled everything!
