When the good folks at Commodity offered to send us their Fitting Kits to try out, we weren’t quite sure what to expect. Our first thought was that it was just another mix-and-match set of unfinished fragrance notes to play around with, layer, and create something unique on our own. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. Boy, were we ever wrong! Each of these babies is a well-blended, beautifully finished fragrance that makes a statement of its own. The only thing wrong with Commodity was that every time we’d find a scent we loved (Pinot!) we’d try another and love it even more (Tea!) There are ten Women’s and ten Men’s fragrances, with a little bit of overlap (Moss, Gold, Paper), but it’s really not necessary to pay any attention to the gender categorizations – all are wearable by anyone!
Would you like to win your very own Fitting Kit? And once you’ve sampled them all – a 100ml bottle of your favorite Commodity fragrance?! We thought so! Just read through the scents and their descriptions below and leave a comment telling us which one you’d like best! One lucky winner will be chosen at random on Monday, June 30.
