5 Faves: Commodity Goods Recipes

I've never been super into beauty products; I don't tend to wear a ton of makeup, and my routine is pretty basic and inexpensive. Even though I think it's fun to branch out and try something new every once in a while, for the most part I stick with my tried-and-true favorites. (I'll also never be able to master winged eyeliner, but that's another issue entirely.) The one exception to that, however, is scents. I may look like I rolled out of bed 30 seconds ago, but at the very least, I will smell good. Lotions, body sprays, and perfumes take up more space than all of my other beauty products combined, and they really always have. So late last year, when I won a giveaway from Commodity Goods, I was f.r.e.a.k.i.n.g. o.u.t. I have been obsessed with CG since my very first cocktail kit, and had prioritized which scents I was going to buy first, when I got an email from them telling me I would be receiving one of everything they make--just for filling out a survey (!). 

What I love most about CG is that, not only are literally all of their perfumes amazing, but they also are formulated to compliment each other, and you can create combinations to make your own scent. I thought it would be fun to post about some of my favorite perfume "recipes" that I wear regularly,  now that I've had time to try them all out. I tend to combine one of their black collection (which are a bit heavier) with a scent from their white collection (which are lighter), but the possibilities are endless. The cocktail kit is a good place to start if you want to experiment and find which combo is your favorite. Here are mine: 

The Brit (Wool + Rain):  Warm and cozy, yet fresh and even a little bit sweet, this is one of the coziest combos, and maybe even my very favorite of all. 

 The Explorer (Moss + Rain): fresh and earthy, this one reminds me of an early morning hike through the forest--and who doesn't love that?

 The Introvert (Book + Tea): Sweet, fruity, and a little bit musky, this combo was recommended to me by a friend at work.  I don't know why I didn't think to put them together on my own. Books and tea? They just go together.

The Southerner (Gin + Magnolia): Moody and woodsy with fresh magnolia. You'll feel like you're strolling through the south with a Gin Fizz in hand--or at least smell like it.

The Executive (Whiskey + Gold): Smoky and sweet, this one is also in the running for my very favorite combination. I mean, it can't be a coincidence that one of my favorite scents is also my favorite drink, right?

How about you? Have you experimented with any Commodity Goods scents?
