Scent Trunk: How to Smell Like a Lady

Something happened when I turned 30 last year. I started feeling very old whenever I browsed the juniors department. I took offense at being called ma’am instead of celebrating that good manners are not completely dead in this world. I decided I’d never truly be an adult unless I could pass myself off as a sophisticated lady. Whatever that means.

On the search for sophistication, I decided to try Scent Trunk, a monthly subscription box that offers unique perfumes that will make you smell like a lady.

After attempting flower arranging, I decided it was time to tackle another ladylike field, perfume. After a little research, I discovered Scent Trunka monthly fragrance subscription box from Canada that offers unique fragrances from independent perfumers.

After taking a short survey about the scents and perfumes I like, my scent profile was narrowed down to whitefloral, animalic, floral. I was eager to see what they would send me and was surprised by the scents I received.

The Scent Trunk Perfumes

On the search for sophistication, I decided to try Scent Trunk, a monthly subscription box that offers unique perfumes that will make you smell like a lady.

Earth By Roberta Andrade

This was my least favorite of the three. The scent made me think of men’s cologne, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but the scent was too heavy for me.

Violette Fumee by Mona di Orio

This was a middle of the road fragrance for me. The only thing special about this one is the price tag. However, it does have a very ladylike scent, although it’s more rich grandmother than lady of the manor.

Hothouse Flower by Ineke Perfumer

This was my favorite of the three. I love gardenias, and one of my favorite fragrances is Kai, so I was very happy with Hothouse Flower. The scent is light and fresh and perfect for a lady who lunches.

Thoughts on Scent Trunk

While I really only liked one out of the three perfumes sent to me, I do think this subscription is a nice way to try new fragrances. Samples often cost $4 to $5, so Scent Trunk’s price seems reasonable, especially since you are getting perfumes that are not mass produced. I, also, like that 1.5% of sales goes towards the Brain and Behaviour Research Foundation, whose goal is to identify causes, improve treatments and one day prevent and cure mental illness.

As with every personalized service, the more you use it, the better your matches should be. The vials are the perfect size for travel, and I like that the info cards give more information about each perfume.  Plus, it’s nice to find a subscription box that offers free shipping to the US, Canada, and the UK.

I tried Scent Trunk thanks to a free trial they were offering and only paid for shipping. That offer is still currently available here.

  1. The funny is that Hothouse flower is the name of one of my favorite books
    These scents are very interesting
    I nver tried this product
    Great review

  2. Oh so if I get hooked on the expensive stuff then I am in for it! I do have a hard time though to committing to just one scent. My mood changes, so the little samples might actually be just perfect.

  3. Sampling products is smart and the only real way to discover what we like. Your comment on age strikes me. Yes, you’re shifting from one stage of life to another… but you’re still so young! Enjoy your youth and don’t sweat the small stuff. Or, if you do, wear perfume so nobody will notice. 🙂

  4. This seems like such a fun subscription! I totally agree. I just turned 30 and all of a sudden I feel old! Perfume feels perfectly ladylike to me.

  5. I’ve never heard of this subscription, it sounds fun.
    I sometimes spritz my husband’s cologne on me, I love it! Is that weird? 😀

  6. I had never heard of this, this is really neat! You really review some neat products 🙂 I have worn the same scents for awhile, so this would be fun to change it up and find new scents that I enjoy.

  7. Oh, how cool! I love subscription boxes and this looks like an awesome one to get! I totally agree with you: I don’t like smelling manly either! 😀

  8. Firstly, I adore the changes you’ve made to your blog layout. Very, very pretty and clean looking.

    Secondly, these sound scent-ational (couldn’t resist :)). I’m a huge fan of small batch and indie perfumes and will definitely be checking this service out. Thanks for the great intro.

    Have a fabulous Friday,
