Something we've all experienced, the rollerball perfume station at Sephora. We all know the bit; you casually walk around and sniff every travel spray - maybe even try one out, but you almost never purchase one. When it comes to fragrances (especially for myself), familiarity is highly regarded - I'm not one to veer from my signature Chloe scent ... well, that was until my last trip to our beloved rollerball station.
On a whim, and because I'm a sucker for good packaging, I tried a spritz of a scent called 'Moss' by budding cult classic Commodity Goods - this was my gateway experience to the brand.
Next thing I know, I'm given the opportunity to check out one of the newest members of the Commodity Goods family. Friends, meet the Commodity Goods Cocktail Kit!!
What I found to be most intriguing about this product/ concept is that our friends at Commodity have created an experience for us, in this little white box. The Cocktail Kit offers so much more than just 10 spritzers of the Commodity Goods fragrance line; it offers you and me the opportunity to create our own scent-ual experience - I am not sure about you, but I love me some customization. Oh and BONUS this brand is UNISEX .. Cocktail Kits for everyone!
The way the kit works is like this; included in your box are 10 of Commodity Goods signature fragrances and it's up to you and your imagination to craft a truly customized scent of the day.
Since receiving the kit I've taken stab at this whole mixing business and boy was it fun! The range of scents is awesome; if you're feeling energized and perky mixing scents from the "White Collection" are perfect - a couple of my favorites are Tea (with notes of freesia, sandalwood, and Sicilian Lemons) and Magnolia (with notes of eucalyptus, magnolia, and oak moss).
If you're feeling confident or you're attending a swanky dinner party, scents from the "Black Collection" are the way to go. Be sure to sample a couple of my favorites: Moss (with notes of bergamot, cedar wood, and orange blossom) and Gin (with notes of patchouli, leather, and watery nuances).
Honestly, the range of scents you can come up with is BANANAS .. see for yourself on their site (here) - just so much to see and learn when you're working with your Cocktail Kit.
This morning, I got a little crazy and CROSSED COLLECTIONS. You heard me right, I was feeling a bit snuggly today (with all the snowfall and all) and decided to mix Rain and Book! I was taken to a new level with this mix and I am anxious to see what you all come up with once this hits the shelves at your local Sephora! Let me know what you think & be sure to tag me (@samantha_rei) and Commodity Goods (@commoditygoods).
Like I said, keep your eyes peeled - there seems to be much anticipation behind this release. The Commodity Goods Cocktail Kit hits shelves at Sephora across North America on February 1. 2016 for $22USD WHAT A STEAL! Until then, I recommend you get to know this up and coming brand on their site (here).
