Scentwist Review May 2019
This month’s fragrance selection that I had in my Scentwist queue and received recently brings a lot of memories and stories. I had put Be by Calvin Klein in my queue because it’s been a while since I’ve had it and worn it.
When I was fourteen years old and in high school, one of my best friend’s mom had this perfume on her night stand. When we’d go to this friend’s house to get ready to go out, she’d let me wear it because I absolutely loved the scent.
The following year, my best friend Natalia traveled to England as her 15th birthday present and she bought me a big bottle of the BE perfume in the free shop for my 15th birthday. I was so shocked and humbled by her generosity and I wore that perfume for years. I don’t know what happened to it once I moved to the US. Not sure I finished it or if one of my sisters did but now I have some to wear again.
Just smelling it out of the vial took me back to my teenage years. The scent is so sophisticated, it’s so unique.
The way Scentwist works is super simple: you register and create your account, you create a queue with the fragrances you want to receive each month and you can edit it any time.
The first time you get to choose the color of your case, they have 9 different colors to choose from. I got a copper color and 4 months later they sent me an olive green one. You get a new one every 4 months!
Each month you receive an 8ml (0.27 fl oz) vial equivalent to 30 days of fragrance. Your Scentwist box includes a welcome flyer as well as instructions on how to use your Scentwist and change your vials.
CK Be is a deep unisex fragrance that can be used during the daytime or nighttime. It was introduced in 1996 and it’s a subtle blend of mandarin, musk, magnolia, peach and sandalwood.
The floral tones mixed with the exotic aromas will get everyone’s attention. So excited to keep my Scentwist case in my purse and wear it all the time!
