I was never big on fragrance. I have a jar full of samples but I can't seem to find one that is me. I had been eyeing Commodity Goods for a while, loving their minimalistic packaging and creative descriptions. Commodity Goods was able to send me some of their products to share with you all.
Commodity Gold was one of their fragrances I was interested in. I had only ever worn floral scents, but I always loved vanilla. Commodity Gold's key notes are molten amber, benzoin and vanilla. The perfumer, Donna Ramanauskas, created this rich and luxurious scent that resembles gold, but is still not too heavy or overpowering.
For those who aren't familiar with what fragrance notes are, here's a quick explanation.
- Top notes are the scents that you can immediately recognize after you apply the perfume and typically last about 15 minutes.
- Middle notes (also known as "heart notes") last about 30 minutes and are the scents recognizable shortly after the top notes evaporate.
- The base notes are the scents that last the longest. Some base notes can last more than 24 hours.
