Currently Obsessed: Aromateria

OK, so I’ve just written up a post on my main blog, Nothing Spaces, where I went on and on… and on about Aromateria. Aromateria is a local brand that makes solid perfumes. I was such a big fan of LUSH’s solid perfumes, annoying packaging aside, and I particularly liked Dirty, which is incidentally such a clean and fresh scent. I first heard about Aromateria from Sheena, who Instagrammed a few scents two years ago. I know both Eliza and Wiji are fans, too.


A few months ago, I blogged about this super cool perfume brand called Commodity Goods. They offered “fitting kits,” which are small vials of all the scents they offer (reviewed here), in case you weren’t sure if you wanted to smell like Gin or Book or Mimosa. I ended up purchasing quite a few scents in the 10ml vials, but I reserved my 100ml order for Moss. It is a crisp but woodsy scent that has been designated by Commodity as both a male and female scent. Moss is one of my favorite scents to wear these days as it’s not as heavy Book, or as just-out-of-the-shower clean as Cloth. It’s pretty much perfect for me.

Commodity Goods Fitting Kits

I’m not into scents much, but lately, I’ve been trying on different ones to see which I like the best. So far, my scent preferences have differed a lot from when I was a kid (I used to wear perfume and cologne more before), so it’s been a challenge looking for something that suits me personally. I’ve got a post on fragrances in the works, but allow me to talk a bit more about a recent discovery. I first found out about Commodity Goods from my new favorite beauty website, xoVain. One of the writers was sampling a perfume brand through “Fitting Kits,” little tester vials of the scents they offered. Priced at $9 each with free shipping, a fitting kit (one for Women and one for Men) had 10 scents you can trial before committing to a big bottle. I’m personally pretty picky with scents. I don’t get on with a lot of cult favorites like Chloe and Prada Candy, for example. I don’t know. My nose is weird. Commodity, a small company based …

Scents & Sensibility

AKA, I suck at titles, but this is what I picked and I’m sticking to it. Anyway, this is a post on my small “collection” of scents. I don’t really collect scents. I just kind of find one that I really like then stick to that for a long time. I think it’s because I don’t really look for anything new very often. Moschino’s Cheap & Chic I Love Love This is my first “signature scent,” which is just another way of saying that this was the only sort of cologne or perfume I owned at the time. I love this smell, but that is just a fortunate stroke of luck, as I really, truly bought this for the packaging. I saw the packaging in a magazine ad and my parents bought it for me when we were on vacation in New York. That was when I knew that ads worked on gullible people like myself. Also, I was in high school, so give me a break. I Love Love has very fresh and citrus-y …
