Scentbird Perfume Subscription Review June 2015



We are now in our second month of a one-year subscription with Scentbird. Our review for TME’s first month had us singing the praises of this unique upmarket perfume sampling subscription service. And the June 2015 Scentbird subscription has us doing the happy dance. For those of you who may not have read last month’s review you may be asking, “What is Scentbird and how does it work?”

Scentbird ($14.95/month) is a monthly fragrance subscription service, with subscribers receiving a .25 oz sized vial of perfume. Subscribers can choose their fragrance from Scentbird’s 350 plus perfume offerings or opt to receive Scentbird’s monthly-featured scent. First month’s subscription is sent with a velveteen drawing string bag and sturdy, chic atomizer, as well as instructions for how to use the atomizer. Subscriptions are sent out on the 15th of each month. Consecutive months, subscribers receive a vial of their perfume, which we find to be brilliant as it less waste and better for the environment.


For June 2015, we again opted to go with Scentbird’s featured scent -- Daisy Dream by Marc Jacobs. Here is a prime example of why Scentbird is a phenomenal subscription service. First, the subscription arrived in a timely fashion and a .33 oz bottle of Daisy Dream by Marc Jacobs costs $24.00. So for $9.05 less, you can take the perfume for a 30-day “test drive” and if you don’t like it you haven’t lost out. By the same, Scentbird offers the easiest way we can think of to find your next favorite scent.

Scentbird also offers a gifting option, which we just found out about (oops). Team TME can think of very few gifts so lovely as receiving a monthly fragrance. The price point makes Scentbird affordable to gift to friends, mom, sister or girlfriend. The only issue that we have with Scentbird is that it does not offer men’s fragrance at this time. We’re keeping our fingers crossed that the brand will introduce men’s fragrance into the fold because guy’s want to smell nice too (and we want them to smell nice too!). You can subscribe to Scentbird by visiting its website. Check back next month, as we’re getting a little wild a choosing our own scent! :D

Oscar de la Renta and Marc by Marc Jacobs Redken Recap


Show: Oscar de la Renta Autumn/Winter 2015

Lead Stylist: Guido, Redken Global Creative Director

Redken Global Creative Director Guido created a look that combined elegance with ease for the runway at Oscar de la Renta’s Fall/Winter 2015 show. To put a modern touch on the classic French twist, Guido raked the hair back with his fingers, leaving comb marks, and then added shine with Redken’s Forceful 23 super strength hairspray and Diamond Oil High Shine Airy Mist.

“The look at Oscar de la Renta this season is very elegant and classic – very uptown chic. Though the finished look is very done, there’s a sense of ease to it. There are the lines that I created by raking my fingers through the hair to pull it back into the French twist, and the shine that I added with Redken’s Diamond Oil High Shine Airy Mist. I prepped the hair first with Redken’s Stay High 18 because you need some grip and hold to achieve the style. The key here is to secure the French twist at the back of the neck, making sure it’s flat and tight against the head, which creates a super beautiful profile.” -Guido

Create the Look:

Step 1: Apply a quarter-size amount of Redken Stay High 18 high-hold gel to mousse to damp hair and blow dry.

Step 2: Gather hair and rake with fingers to create comb marks, and then pull up into a

Step 3: French twist. Be sure the base of the twist is tight and flat against the head.

Step 4: Secure the French twist by pinning with open fasteners.

Step 5: Finish with a thorough spray of Redken Forceful 23 super strength hairspray for hold and lightly mist Redken Diamond Oil High Shine Airy Mist all over for added shine.

 Show: Marc by Marc Jacobs

Referencing the revolutionary, rebellious style of the Guardian Angels from the 1980’s, Redken Global Creative Director Guido achieved a style with perfectly defined texture to balance the berets seen on the runway at the Marc by Marc Jacobs Fall/Winter 2015 show. Guido created light, messy texture by saturating the hair with Redken’s Full Frame 07 all-over volumizing mousse and then allowing the hair to air dry, to enhance each girl’s individual style.

“It’s all about the revolutionary, rebellious girl at Marc by Marc Jacobs today. The Guardian Angels are kind of a reference point for the look, which has a very 80’s feeling. Each girl is wearing a beret with different symbols and badges, which really makes the style. The hair is very textured, which I created by saturating the hair with Redken’s Full Frame 07 mousse, scrunching it a bit with my fingers and then just letting it air dry to get that light, messy texture with just enough definition.” – Guido

Create the Look:

Step 1: Start with dry hair

Step 2: Dampen hair by misting water all over using a spray bottle

Step 3: Create a messy center part using fingers

Step 4: Apply Redken Full Frame 07 all-over volumizing mousse section by section to fully saturate hair

Step 5: Scrunch hair with fingers and allow to air dry

Step 6: Finish with a mist of Redken Diamond Oil High Shine Airy Mist and put on beret or hat

Redken #NYFW Roundup Hair by Guido: Marc Jacobs, Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren




Guido, Redken Creative Consultant, styles hair for more than 80 fashion shows every year in New York, London, Milan, and Paris. He fuels trend-setting hairstyles around the globe every season and is the creative force behind fashion's most iconic hairstyles. For TME Readers, we’ve got the “Get The Look” for NYFW most iconic designers! 

Show: Marc Jacobs Spring/Summer 2015

For the fourth season in a row, Redken Creative Consultant Guido created 60 custom wigs for the highly-anticipated Marc Jacobs Spring/Summer 2015 NYFW show. Working very closely with Marc Jacobs to complete his vision for the runway, Guido drew inspiration from the 70’s and 80’s to create a fantasy on the runway.

“The wigs we created are a total reflection of Marc Jacob’s style. He has a complete vision for his show, and the wigs really allowed us to bring this vision to life because they almost depersonalize the girls. We were inspired by the 70’s and 80’s and by Joey Ramone’s bowlish haircut. First, we dyed all of the wigs black and then we pre-cut them before the show so that we could custom cut them for each girl backstage to create that perfect bowl-shape with the heavy bang. Texture is also very important for this look.” - Guido, Redken Creative Consultant

Redken Products Used: wind blown 05 dry finishing spray, fashion waves 07 sea salt spray, hardwear 16 super strong sculpting gel, and control addict 28 high hold hairspray

Create the Look - Marc Jacobs:
  1. Apply hardwear 16 super strong sculpting gel to dry hair from root to ends and comb through until hair is completely saturated.
  2. Divide hair into two sections (top and bottom) in the back.
  3. Clip the bottom section down and out of the way.
  4. Using a finishing brush, start to brush the top section flat against the head, following the round of the head in one direction. Repeat with each section, making sure it’s very clean and neat-looking when finished.
  5. Blow dry hair until completely dry.
  6. Apply control addict 28 high hold hairspray to smooth any flyaways.
  7. Place wig on head.
  8. Cut the wig into a bowl-shape with a heavy bang.
  9. Mist water all over the wig until damp, and then liberally spray fashion waves 07 sea salt spray all over, scrunching into hair with fingers to create chunky texture.
  10. Allow to air dry and finish by thoroughly spraying wind blown 05 dry finishing spray all over the hair for added texture.

Show: Calvin Klein Spring/Summer 2015

Redken Creative Consultant Guido created a chic, Japanese-inspired chignon for Calvin Klein’s Spring/Summer 2015 NYFW show, adding a bit of toughness to the designer’s classic collection.

“The look at Calvin Klein is always very minimal and classic. This season the girl is still quite classic, but with a tough, sexy edge, which was inspired by the Japanese or chinoiserie kind of look. I simply pulled the hair back very tight with my fingers to create a high ponytail, and then twisted the hair into a chignon that’s a bit messy with little wispy hairs popping out of the bun.” - Guido, Redken Creative Consultant

Redken Products Used: forceful 23 super strength hairspray, Diamond Oil High Shine Airy Mist (available in November)

Create the Look - Calvin Klein:
  1. Liberally spray forceful 23 super strength hairspray and Diamond Oil High Shine Airy Mist throughout the hair, using fingers to work into the roots for texture and grip.
  2. Pull hair back into a tight, high ponytail with fingers, securing with an elastic.
  3. Twist the length of the ponytail into a tight chignon, fastening with small U-pins and allowing a few wispy strands of hair to stick out from the bun.
  4. Finish with another mist of forceful 23 super strength hairspray and Diamond Oil High Shine Airy Mist all over for added texture and shine.

Show: Ralph Lauren Spring/Summer 2015

Redken Creative Consultant Guido brought modern luxury to the Ralph Lauren runway once again, creating two classic, minimal looks to complement the designer’s collection. Guido created an elegant low ponytail and a beautiful, smooth blowout to bring to life the timeless, traditional lifestyle of Ralph Lauren.

“Ralph Lauren continues to tell the story of easy luxury on the runway. The hair is all about this beautiful, rich texture. Some of the girls have their hair back in an elegant, low ponytail, and some have their hair down, which is a nod to Ralph’s commitment to stay true to his brand rather than following the latest trends. These styles with rich, natural textures achieve a very classic, finished and modern feeling.” - Guido, Redken Creative Consultant

Redken Products Used: satinwear 02 prepping blow-dry lotion, fashion work 12 versatile hairspray, pillow proof blowdry express primer, pillow proof blowdry two day extender

Create the Look – Ralph Lauren Elegant Low Ponytail:
  1. Apply a nickel-sized amount of satinwear 02 prepping blow-dry lotion throughout damp hair.
  2. Create a side part and then blow-dry hair smooth using a round brush for added volume.
  3. Brush hair into a low ponytail, securing at the base of the head with a small elastic.
  4. Take a small section of hair from the ponytail and wrap it around the elastic, securing with a small pin.
  5. Finish with a mist of fashion work 12 versatile hairspray for a clean, polished look.   


Create the Look – Ralph Lauren Relaxed Blowout:
  1. Shampoo and condition the hair with Redken Clear Moisture shampoo and conditioner
  2. Apply pillow proof blowdry express primer 2 damp hair
  3. Allow hair to dry naturally
  4. Use a curling iron to add movement into the mid-lengths and ends if necessary
  5. Spray pillow proof blowdry two day extender on mid-lengths and ends for added texture

Marc Jacobs Spring/Summer 2015 Backstage with NARS




SHOW: Marc Jacobs SS15

LEAD ARTIST: François Nars, Founder & Creative Director

LOOK: "The look for the show features no makeup – we only applied moisturizer. With Marc we always take it to the extreme, we’ve done bold looks in the past, but this season we wanted to make a statement by not applying anything.”

This goes back to one of the looks that I’ve always loved – bare skin, nothing on the face, lips or eye, just beautiful skin – I love makeup but I also love seeing women without makeup. To me, it’s a great way to show fashion. It works so well with the clothes and the hair. Who knows, maybe next season we will go back to a full face of makeup. I love having the flexibility to do this; we are not locked into applying makeup. I like the idea that what you see is what you get.”
