When I featured the Commodity Fragrance Portfolio a few weeks back I had several messages back from people who’d bought it and absolutely loved trying all the different scents before settling upon a favourite. Book emerged as front-runner so I thought I’d give it a post of its own.
You can very quickly over-think this fragrance – is it supposed to smell like a book, like a moment reading a book? Or is it just called ‘Book’ after some far-fetched Hemingway inspiration – who knows? But once the word book is in your head (because you can’t avoid it!) you will definitely find yourself trying to make it smell like your version of a book! There is a paperish quality to it – a kind of cool space library (think church, not cool as in trendy) vibe – that emerges just after the initial slightly sweet and powdery opening.
The fragrance is woody in nature with bergamot, cypress and sandalwood (also eucalyptus which I couldn’t pick out at all) and above all, it’s creamy and smooth. A very easy fragrance to live in and with for it’s calmness and soothing notes. You’ll also find cypress, amyris, amber, musk, sandalwood and velvet (er, velvet what?!). It’s very much more literary work than holiday read and entirely unisex. The travel version is £24 HERE and the Commodity Portfolio is £29 HERE.
