We started with Book Expressive: a warm yet unexpectedly fresh woody scent built around Cedarwood and Sandalwood.
We then infused black tea and skin musk to place an emphasis on freshness for an aromatic Personal rendition.
We finished with a bravado, an amplified Bold rendition with the addition of smoky, velvety musks.
The fragrances at Commodity are simply wonderful. Having sampled all of the Expressive and Bold versions from the collection, I can honestly say I love the general dna of this house. They're all beautiful in their own way, but my standout favourite was Book from the start (closely followed by Velvet and Gold). I personally prefer the Bold range. I also love the ethos of the brand. Their website is a delight to use, their packaging is sublime, and delivery within the UK is super quick. I should really say more aboit why I love Book so much, but my best advice to anyone wondering about these stunning fragrances is to just explore the sample sets - even the attention to detail with the samples sets is superb.

Fragrance isn't one-scent-fits-all.
Some people wear fragrances only for themselves—preferring scents that are discrete, close to the skin, only to be noticed by the ones they allow close. Others prefer a statement fragrance—scents that fill the room with their presence, to be noticed by everyone else. And of course, there are the people that fall somewhere in between—preferring scents that will land them compliments within their immediate radius and without overwhelming any space.
With this in mind, each Commodity fragrance is available in three different Scent Space concentrations—Personal, Expressive, and Bold—so that you can find your favorite fragrance in your preferred Scent Space.
Select a Scent Space:
Smoky and woody, this scent opens with notes of Eucalyptus and Violet. Then, as the minutes pass and the scent comes to life, you'll begin to notice Cedarwood and Sandalwood. For the final chapter, Velvet Musk and Smoke bring about a dramatic finale.

“The original book was inspired by turning the pages and breathing in the smell of dry paper mingling in with the open fresh air. In Book Bold, I also used this as inspiration, but wanted to create a more expressive experience. I amplified the eucalyptus and cedar notes of Book Personal by layering in violet and earthy, deep vetiver root creating a more intense version for the wearer.”
