Gift subscriptions are $54 for 3 months, $96 for 6 months and $180 for 12 months.
As soon as the subscription is live, you are enrolled in the “Scent Academy”. It helps you to figure out what scents are your favourite – so you can get exactly what you want. I just love that you can customize your scent since I am a very picky person with a sensitive nose.
