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 &Â center? My newest scent addictionÂ is Book by Commodity from Sephora, it fits my aesthetic seamlessly both in its scent &Â sensibility!
Sephora has beenÂ 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 promoteÂ 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 evokedÂ 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 spineÂ smell, just flipping through cover to cover.
The mix of woodsy notes along withÂ cucumber & eucalyptus gives off a great balance: Fresh while still borrowingÂ from the boys…Best of both worlds!
