So here’s the deal…..I loved my December Scent Trunk, but wasn’t too excited about my February & March boxes. I decided to do a little research last month and found out that I can update my profile on a monthly basis in order to indicate which fragrances I liked and disliked. Since I really didn’t like the last few fragrances I received I gave them a poor rating on my Scent Trunk profile, with the hopes that I wouldn’t receive similar fragrances again this month……I had high hopes…..but things didn’t really work out in my favour.
Etoile d’Or – This one has notes of bergamot, lavender, jasmine and rose. I really dislike any sort of floral scent when it comes to my fragrances so this one isn’t for me.
Sogno Reale – This one has notes of amber, sandalwood, and hyrax. Amber and sandalwood are a little too earthy for me, so sadly I won’t be wearing this one either.
Pour Elle – This one has notes of cherry, bergamot, freesia and jasmine. I had high hopes for this one since it has notes of cherry, but the freesia and jasmine definitely take over, and all I can smell is flowers.
Thoughts: I’m a little disappointed that I received fragrances with floral tones yet again. I feel like I have received a lot of jasmine and freesia scents over the last few months when all I really want is fruity scents. I went back to my Scent Trunk profile and double checked that I had indicated the notes I like, and I definitely have. My profile indicates that I like fruity notes, vanilla, and brown sugar, but I didn’t receive any of those this month. I kind of wish they had a comment section on our profiles so I could leave them notes. Here’s hoping that next month will be a little better.
