shot in collaboration with Commodity Fragrances at Sephora
Aside from choosing scents based on scent, I’m a sucker for gorgeous packaging, why hide life’s little luxuries at the bottoms of drawers when they can be front &¬†center? My newest scent addiction¬†is Book by Commodity from Sephora, it fits my aesthetic seamlessly both in its scent &¬†sensibility!
Sephora has been¬†my first destination for anything and everything beauty, hair and fragrance for as long as I can remember. An expert in niche fragrances in particular, they are all about offering a library of scent options that promote¬†individuality and layering scents to create the perfect cocktail to suit your personality. It’s here that I found “Book”.
Part of Commodity’s Black Collection, composed of scents that are intense, complex and moody (kinda like me ; ) …Book immediately drew me in. Partly nostalgic and partly sentimental, it evoked¬†childhood memories of my time growing up in Europe…packed bookshelves & book stacks at home, pouring through pages. The woodsy notes remind me of that vintage book spine¬†smell, just flipping through cover to cover.
The mix of woodsy notes along with¬†cucumber & eucalyptus gives off a great balance: Fresh while still borrowing¬†from the boys…Best of both worlds!
