Earlier this week, as I was scrolling through Instagram, I noticed this snap from Lauren, and was instantly intrigued (as you can tell by the conversation we had!). A new-to-me perfume line, with insanely good packaging? Telllll me more!
After heading to the Commodity Goods website like Lauren recommended, I was sold. With Commodity, you can find a totally unique fragrance, right in the comfort of your home. The company works with a 160 year old French fragrance house, and creates all the fragrances in L.A. To try any of ’em out, you simply order a $9 sample pack (called a “fitting kit”), decide what you like, and place an order. I’m a TOTAL sucker for unique perfumes, especially ones that won’t be recognizable. I also find find it’s easy to get a headache hanging out in places like Sephora or a department store, where all the scents (and people) can overwhelm. I loved the idea of testing out a fragrance in Commodity’s collection simply by spritzing one on each morning, and then seeing which one one suited me as the day passed by. Find a fave, then order directly from their website. Easy enough!
And, I mean, the packaging. If Lauren’s Instagram didn’t convince you, holy chic do these things look good sitting on a dresser. The women’s collection of Commodity perfumes features these light, pretty bottles with gold labels; the men’s collection is equally as striking.
I’ve already ordered my own sample pack and cannot WAIT to get it — I’ll be sure to report back on which scents I’m digging. I’m also kind of into the idea of layering the scents, just to see what happens, like this video demonstrates (hmm…Gold Magnolia? Tea Mimosa?). For $9, it’s a fun little beauty experiment, no? Plus, if you end up ordering a full size perfume, Commodity lets you put that $9 towards your purchase! If you end up ordering a sample pack, be sure to come back here and tell me which scent you loved.
