Since the launch of Scentbird’s first-ever hand cream collection this October, we’ve heard from many fragrance enthusiasts, wondering which scent to try first. Are you bubbly rose or super-fresh cucumber, aromatic tea with berries or yuzu paired with zesty ginger? It’s hard to tell without having a sniff for yourself – we get it. We polled our team of scent explorers (we have our noses in an array of concoctions daily) to find out which hand creams have become office heroes – and why. Decisions, decisions.

**Don’t forget: you can shop hand creams with or without a subscription. If you are a Scentbird member, you can add hand cream to your order just as you would a fragrance, or upgrade your account to receive multiple products each month.
“I absolutely love the Earl Grey & Blackberry hand cream. It combines two of my most favorite things! Earl Grey note smells like a real cup of good tea (which I drink all day long) that warms me up on cold days. And Blackberry is so yummy, it’s hard to believe the berries aren’t fresh-pressed on your skin. The smell and moisture last so long, the texture is light but very soothing. And the packaging? So cute!”

“I usually go with Yuzu & Ginger. To begin with, I started using hand creams only on the recommendation of my music teacher some long time ago, when I was playing academic music. As a musician you need to take good care of your hands, as even small details can affect your performance. I try not to use many scented products, as I pay considerable attention to the fragrances I wear. Also, I perceive myself as a little bit too mature for fruity and especially citrusy scents. So, I am usually reluctant to try something new.
Being a Product Manager you ought to know particularly well the products you offer to your users. So, once, I was testing hand creams and was absolutely flabbergasted, when I found out that Yuzu & Ginger is actually rather good. Not only the smell, that wasn’t fruity as I had thought, but was the way I like: a little spicy and fresh, but it also had nice delicate texture.”

“I take Rose & Prosecco with me wherever I go. The scent is more of a green, young rose than anything else, and it opens on my skin throughout the day. In the city – especially in winter – you never know when dry skin will come calling, so I always carry a tube of hand cream in my bag.”

“I absolutely love our White Tea and Fig. It’s a modern take on a classic scent. Definitely a unique fragrance and one that always gets compliments. The hand cream formula penetrates quickly and never leaves my hands feeling tacky or greasy, which I love.”

“Yuzu & Ginger is my favorite! The citrus scent provides an instant pick-me-up, super energizing and hydrating. And the packaging? I’ll be keeping one at my desk, purse, car, vanity and bedside table … basically everywhere.”
