How do you purchase your fragrances? Maybe see an ad for the new Gucci or Chanel and deciding to try it? I think we’ve all done that but when it comes to brands that may not have the big reputation of the aforementioned, it can be hard to decide and I’m sure more peeps would try indy brands like this next one if they had their system in place. They're called COMMODITY and their system allows you to try 5 or 10 of their scents at your own pace and in your own home. The below graphic easily demonstrates it!
Place an order for what they call a Fitting Kit (spray vials sealed in plastic packs) – either 5 samples (their best-sellers) for $5 or the full 10 samples for $9 (free shipping on both). Try each scent out and if you find a fave, you can order The Trio (set of three 10ml sprays for $48) or The 100 (a 100ml spray size for $108) in that scent. And your Fitting Kit cost is free if you order within 30 days of them sending you the Fitting Kit (the cost of the Fitting Kit will be deducted from your purchase of either of the bigger sizes when you order through their website). Can I type the words Fitting Kit one more time in the previous sentence?? :)
The men’s frags are in black packaging and the women’s come in white (all are eau de parfums). Yes, I think the sealed packs are a bit excessive and wasteful but maybe they will come up with another presentation for the samples.
So let me break the scents down for you: the women’s fragrances come in three categories – Fresh Scents (Tea, Moss, Mimosa),Warm Scents (Gold, Paper), Floral Scents (Ivy, Rain, Dew, Magnolia, Pinot).
The men’s is also broken down into three categories – Fresh Scents (Cloth, Moss, Cane) Warm Scents (Wool, Gold, Whiskey, Paper), Woodsy Scents (Gin, Book, Oak).
So there you have it. Very simple and very easy. I've smelled all of the women's scents and almost all of the men's scents and this company knows quality. Each scent is made in small batches to ensure freshness and they bottle them up right here in California!
As far as my favorites, I surprisingly leaned towards the floral ones (must be the time of year!) with Ivy and Pinot coming out on top and for the men's, I'm holding the Cane to spray on the next man in my life.
