An error on my part landed me with Gold by Commodity this month. I had planned on having it in my queue for late summer but ended up moving things around and got it early. My mistake turned about to be great though because this perfume is fabulous. It’s a warm and sultry fragrance that is fitting to it’s namesake. Personally I think Gold is a little more on the feminine side however like most of Commodity’s fragrances; it’s meant for everyone.
Here is how the perfume is described on the Scentbird website.
“Inspired by money in liquid form, this delectable scent is capable of lifting your mood with just one spray. As luxurious and elegant as the name suggests, Gold is a warm and gourmand scent that is loved by both men and women. This rich concoction of molten amber and Nubian musk is indulgent enough to bathe in. Gold is part of Commodity’s White Collection, which includes scents that are light, airy, and easy. The Black Collection is more complex, intense, and moody. Each fragrance is designed to be layered together with any other to create bespoke scents tailored to each individual taste.“
- Tonka Bean
- Scent Type: Woody
- Personality: Sexy
- Occasion: Everyday
- Season: Fall
This will make a great scent for late summer all the way into winter, especially if you layer it with other fragrances. It reminds me of summer and fall nights right when children are starting to head back to school. A time when people are shopping for school supplies or new wardrobes for the changing season. As weird of an association that might be, something about Gold reminds me heading back to school when I was younger. Perhaps it was a perfume one of the teachers wore.
As the description suggests, it is very light. The vanilla, or maybe the tonka bean, is the first thing I picked up on after applying it but the subtly of the other main notes help to elevate it from a typical vanilla scent.
