Our first glimpse inside Phlyrt Box. You know what they say, “Good things come in small packages!”
phlyrt box spoilers
Everything that we received in our Phlyrt Box for August. There are 8 vials (4 fragrances in total). What we find most amazing is that each scent is absolutely unique, It’s like meeting four incredibly interesting people in totally different ways. IN-TENTS

So what is all this stuff?

Our box inserts. Not only is there a card that describes different types of scents and how to use test strips but there is also a card for each individual perfume. We love this – it helps us more accurately describe each!
cognoscenti scent no 1
$30 Full Size (per 5ml)
This unisex fragrance is natural and clean smelling. A very light scent for everyday wear. Contains Bergamot, Fig, Pink Grapefruit, Ylang Ylang, Clary Sage (we love it), Teak, Light Musk and Suede. We feel like the bottom notes of musk really come through on this one. This fragrance has an alcohol base. We loved looking through the San Francisco based Cogno Scenti site as well they have some amazing sounding fragrances! 
sycamore chai solstice scents
$3 (each)
This is the MOST unique and complex scent we’ve ever had the pleasure of wearing. It doesn’t have the most ingredients either, it’s complexity comes into play as you wear it. The scent actually becomes stronger the longer you leave it on and some notes more present than others. The notes of Cardamom, Tea, Vanilla Chai, and Ginger Pumpkin Rolls greet you like a warm hug. This is definitely a fall scent and is part of the Solstice Scents Autumn Collection (they have a huge roster of scents to choose from). This is a very “nostalgic” and “comfy” scent. We are in love!
$3 (each)
Edge of the Night is neither masculine or feminine. It has fine a spicy top note and then a strong musk with a Chypre Base (we had to look that up). This has a very bohemian feeling and reminds us very much of our father and pretty much all of this belongings. Very thick and heady
la fleur d' aspiration
$41 Full Size (1 ounce)
Ahh our favorite! This is a traditional floral (in our opinion) a REAL floral scent. Like a flower you’d lean over to smell in your garden. There are also notes of Citrus, Wood, Balsamic and Powder. The flowers in this are Frangipani flowers – we had to look that up but quite simply it’s plumeria. However, if you’re expecting the smell most commonly associated with Plumeria – NO, just no. This scent is so much more beautiful! 
Everything came in this little bag with the Phlyrt Box logo. This is actually a really cool way to store all of your testers!
We also received four tester strips. And even though we did – never test perfume on your skin first!

So in summary

We look for three things in a subscription box; quality, curation, and presentation. Phlyrt Box is an amazing way to not only find amazing perfumes but also small independent perfumers. Each box is an opportunity to find a hidden treasure that would have otherwise gone unfound. The presentation is excellent. The box is small and pretty .. the little bag they come in is quite adorable as well! The quality of each perfume is amazing! We are really impressed with the assortment that they’ve come up with. And the curation is so fantastic! Each scent is wonderful but each is so unique and different. We love this subscription and feel that it really opened our eyes to a world of perfumes that was previously closed. 
As far as box economy the Phlyrt Box is $15.99 and while we aren’t sure of each price we feel that you definitely get your money’s worth!
