BRAND TO KNOW: COMMODITY GOODS

Recently I have become somewhat of a self diagnosed perfume junkie.  I am obsessed with trying new scents and finding what works for me. So naturally when my friend Michelle introduced me to Commodity Goods, I was instantly hooked and slightly addicted.  Maybe it was the super cool branding, or the fact you can try all of the scents at home. But the fact is, I want to collect all of them to display in my bathroom.

I told you earlier this week that I love the month of February, but the real reason is that I am a hopeless romantic, hence why I love Valentine’s Day.  It is not really about the day, the cards, or the gifts, but it’s just another way to show and tell my favorite people how much I really care about them.  Oh and the fact that I love arts and crafts.  My mom is one of the most creative people I know. Growing up, we would spend hours in her office/playroom painting and crafting. Because she used to own her own kid’s clothing company, she was always creating.  I am so thankful to have picked up this trait and love for creativity from her.

So, back to Valentine’s Day.  There is something so special about a scent that is unique to you. Back in the day (I am talking middle school days) Ralph Lauren, Romance was my scent. Today, I have a few scents that I love for different occasions. This is why I am completely in love with E&J’s Nirvana perfumes. Created by Mary Kate and Ashley, Nirvana embodies ‘duality of sophistication and feminine detail balanced with downtown edge and masculine tailoring’. Two very distinct scents; the white (my favorite for daytime) has touches of peonies, muguet, and musk and the black blends violet, sandalwood, and vanilla into the perfect scent for a night out on the town.
