COMMODITY CANDLES


I had recently been approached by Commodity to become one of their influencers to which of course, I jumped at the chance!

Commodity is a relatively new and niche indie brand which use passionate perfumers to create special fragrances for both the body and home to allow yourself to express who you are and to enhance the way that you live. Sounds pretty exciting right? All of Commodity's fragrances are uni-sex and only use nature's finest ingredients, all of which are paraben free and cruelty-free.

As one of their influencers I received two of their candles;

From L-R; Book - Leather

From L-R; Book - Leather

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1. BOOK

Slightly too overpowering for my personal taste, but has a divine 'earthy' feel to it!

  • Top Notes: Virginian Cedarwood, Bois de Rose, Eucalyptus, Bergamot
  • Middle Notes: Alaskan Cypress, Amyris, Amber
  • Base Notes: Musk, Sandalwood, Velvet

Behind the 'Book' scent is the perfumer; Ketrin Leka who was inspired by the turning of the book's pages whilst breathing in the smell of dry paper mingling in with the fresh air. I found the scent of the Book candle a little too overbearing, even without the candle burning... That, however, is just my personal preference and perhaps you may prefer candles that have a loud projection! To purchase, click here.

2. LEATHER

Out of the two, the Leather candle has to be my favourite.

  • Top Notes: Black Leather, Oregano Essence, Juniper Wood Essence
  • Middle Notes: Cacao Bean Absolute, Myrrh Resinoid, Cade Essence, Akigalawood
  • Base Notes: Styrax Resinoid, Cedarwood Essence, Haitian Vetiver Essence, Cistus Labdanum Essence from Concrete

Created by the perfumer; Rodrigo Flores-Roux, the Leather candle is bold and powerful with the heaviness of the Black Leather note coming through which remains prominent throughout the candle's burn time, yet still, has a creamy and rich feeling which softens the harshness of the Black Leather! Upon the first burn, this took a while for me to notice anything was actually burning, but once I had re-entered the room a wall of Leather hit my senses. If you are after a candle that fills the room and are a fan of Leather scents, then this one is one to check out. To purchase, click here.

Each of the Commodity home fragrances come with a little booklet which offers up more information and the process behind each scent. The booklet also has a 'candle care' guide which is particularly handy for those who struggle with maximising the most out of their candles!
