Subjective, as the dictionary defines it, is pertaining to or characteristic of an individual; personal; individual.
Timbre is a tone color or particular tone or your personal coloring.
So what does all have to do with personal color analysis?

Itten made another important discovery. A student’s chosen colors and tones, the ones they are naturally drawn to, were the same ones that looked the best on them and consistent with their skin tone, hair, and eyes or their personal coloring.
Itten’s work proved 3 theories;

These subjective choices are indicative of our personality.
Our subjective choices are the same tones and colors that would look best on us.
