Annie and I both love the hunt for a new fragrance. We've spent plenty of time testing and traveling around Los Angeles for scents that distinctly suit us, and more importantly wear well on our skin. But, at the end of the road, the hunt is long and definitely a bit tricky.
Not so with Commodity Goods. Annie first heard about this new venture through our friends at I Love Creatives and after receiving our first batch of fragrances, we are really excited to share our experience with you.
The process is refreshingly simple. First, you order either a women or men's fitting kit which includes 10 samples of each of their fragrances for nine bucks, $9! From there, you've got 30 days to live in them and really get a sense of how they wear on you. If you fall in love with one (or more), you place your order online for a travel ready 10ml or the signature 100ml bottle. And here's the kicker, you receive a $9 refund for your sample kit upon check out.
As much as we love the concept, we really love the scents. Each is significantly different from the next, crossing a full spectrum and delivering a serious variety to fit your mood. Here's a breakdown of a few of our top picks:
- Moss - warm, earthy, and green. Reminded us of a walk in the forest after a spring rain.
- Magnolia - true to its name. Great depth but not too overpowering.
- Mimosa - citrus based and very lively. Feels like a weekend-getaway kinda scent.
- Tea - a calming earthy scent with a hint of lemon and mint. An entirely new fragrance we are addicted to.
