Scent Trunk Review Color and Grace Fashion Link Up

Scent Trunk Review Color and Grace Fashion Link Up

What is your first memory about perfume? Mine was not that pleasant. If you have been reading my blog you will know there was not much fashion in China before the 1980s. Perfume was very much a luxury thing for normal Chinese back then. When I was young, our family had pretty tough times but also some good years too. I remember one year my mom bought her first bottle of perfume and I hated it so much because it smelled awful! 😉

I found my first favorite perfume back in 2000. One day I was strolling down a street where there happened to be many fashionable stores in Shanghai. A young and beautiful girl walked by. That was a hot summer day and she smelled so good! She was wearing something that was very sweet and happy. I couldn’t help but stop her to ask what perfume she was using. That was how I fell in love with Flower from Kenzo.

“A woman who doesn’t wear perfume has no future.”
― Coco Chanel
I don’t totally agree but I do love perfume! It quietly speaks for you just like your outfit. When you’re putting together what to wear, you probably don’t want to pair the exact same things that you did before. We all want to be a little bit different and mix it up if we can. So I was on the hunt for a different perfume to complement my wardrobe. My husband often says I have very expensive eyes because most of the things I like are kinda pricey. He’s wrong of course but he’s gotten pretty used to that since we got married! Lol. But it is true that those full sized bottles are at least $50, and most of the scents I like are more than $100. The thing that does sort of bother me though is sometimes I buy the bottle but a few weeks later I don’t love it as much as I thought I did! So now I have a pretty large collection of perfume bottles that aren’t quite empty! In fact some are more than half full. What to do? Too expensive to throw away but not the smell I am looking for to wear. And why are the bottles so big to begin with? The perfume lasts long enough for me to get tired of it and the bottle is too large for me to bring with me when I travel.

Well as usually happens with my million dollar ideas, someone already had them! And that’s exactly what I discovered when I learned about Scent Trunk. It is a luxury, niche fragrance subscription service that sends you a box containing three unique fragrance samples each month. I just received my first one yesterday:

Below are the details:
Price: $18 US for monthly (3 scents/box), see Scent Trunk for details on seasonal, semi-annual and annual Samples: 2 mL each. Enough to use for the entire month!
Shipping: US & Canada
Shipping Cost: Always included

For $18 per month I (and you) have 3 different perfume scents to use based on the answers to my test I took on their website. This sounded more than reasonable to me. Below are the first 3 personalized samples I received. I love a sweet and flowery type of smell. So far, so good. I like all of them but I really love the one called Pavane No.2.

Honestly I don’t know much about perfume so I like the useful little card they include that tells you a little about each of the samples you receive. It is pretty neat for me that those cards show the longevity and sillage level.

Scent Trunk is a small start-up from Kingston, Ontario, Canada. I was pretty impressed by their story. The service started as a student summer project in 2014. They work with luxury niche, unique and up and coming brands and these are samples you can’t find in department stores.

Does this smell interesting? Well wait until you get a whiff of the fun part. I have two bits of info that I think you’ll be happy to hear if you would like to try some new perfume. The first is, if you use code 7297 when you check out you will get $7.20 of gift credit. The second is, they are running a giveaway now here and you could be the lucky one!

Now talking about giveaways (see how seamlessly I segued there?) the lucky winner from last week’s giveaway on my blog is Janneke from South Africa. Congratulations! Don’t forget to join the Color and Grace Fashion Link up before you leave and have a great day!

Stuff N style app—Your closet organizer

Stuff N style app—Your closet organizer, outfit planner, virtual closet, digital wardrobe, fashion inspiration, style book

Yes I do have a big walk in closet and I LOVE it! It is my favorite place and I often sit there, listen to some music and stare at my shoes, bags & clothes while smiling. 😉

My closet

Although most of my wardrobe is pretty visible, after a while I still have a hard time to remember what I already have. 😉 And yes, I know it sounds just a little bit ridiculous. But it’s already happened to me a few times that I bought some great new piece and then when I got home discovered I already had a very similar item and often still with the price tag on. Hey! Don’t judge me! I’ve been busy!

I wish I had a digital closet that would remind me what I have so I could avoid this duplication. And also I could look through all the items to see what I could mix and match with the new things when I am shopping. So I went to search for this type of App. Nowadays I believe there are already existing apps for just about everything. Sure enough I found one called Stuff N Style

It got my attention right after I read the first sentence on their app introduction:

“Closet full of clothes and nothing to wear? We can help!” Hells to the yes! Sign me up! 😉

Since the App was free, I figured I better give it a try. After I signed up, I then took some quizzes about my body type, styles I like, etc. This app claims that it can help you make the most of your closet and put together outfits that flatter your body type and fit your lifestyle. Sounds great but I’d better give it a try! I clicked the Style Me button and asked my digital stylist to help me with my upcoming fashion show. Below is the screen shot about the result.

Not a bad result just a few hours after I sent my request. I ended up wearing the similar type of shoes and clutch based on their suggestion. I guess I forgot to mention in my notes that I have a tummy issue (it seems all my pants have shrunk at the waist!) so I will not wear that tight of clothes at all. 😉

From the description, it said it can serve as a DIGITAL CLOSET and will automatically remove the background of your clothes for easy outfit planning. Sounds great but that will be a lot of work for them to do. I noticed they made one of my looks this way but honestly I don’t think the background bothers me at all. I do like the hashtag & search your closet for keywords (like #fabric, #season, #color, etc.) function so I will know how many pairs of shoes I have. So how many pairs do I have? Well, lets just say DSW knows me on a first name basis! 😉

Screen Shot

The second function is MAGAZINE-STYLE OUTFITS. I tried the first one on my trip to NYC and it worked pretty good. I haven’t tried others yet so I don’t have any feedback about them.

* Plan what to wear on the go anywhere, anytime.
* Side-by-side presentation of your outfit and corresponding clothes like in fashion magazine editorials.
* Arrange, layer and resize clothing on a free-form canvas.
* Share outfits and clothes with friends via e-mail, iMessage, Facebook or Twitter.

The next function it indicates is STYLE.

* Don’t know what to wear? Send a style request and get styled based on clothes you already have in your closet. I tried this as I mentioned above and I liked it!
* Discover new products that go with your wardrobe. They automatically added some very basic pieces to my closet so I can see how they can mix and match. I am pretty happy that I don’t have to take photos of all my basics, like black pants, white tank tops and so on.
* Find style inspiration from fashionistas with similar style and body type. I haven’t have a chance try this one yet either.

Over all Stuff N Style is a closet organizer, outfit planner, virtual closet, digital wardrobe, fashion inspiration and style book. How cool that I have a personal stylist on my phone and it is FREE!!!! It gives great style tips for when you want to step up your style game. It also introduces me to different key pieces to complete my wardrobe, and they make it so much easier by telling me what brand and then even gives me the link to purchase. I haven’t purchased anything yet but maybe later. 😉

It is still a pretty new app and sometimes it is slow to upload photos. But all in all it is definitely worth a look. That is what I found out so far!
