Black Collection : Book fragrance notes

Reviews of Black Collection : Book

Bergamot opening leads to lavender, sandalwood and something musty. I'm not getting amber or vetiver at all. Balsa? I can't be sure. Book smells like a cola soft drink that's gone flat. It's not offensive, but nothing likeable either. The sillage is equally dull. I wouldn't wear it, but wouldn't be put off by anyone who did either. Truthfully, it's not a fragrance that would be noticed by many people, which is maybe the point and the appeal to a some few. As neutral a fragrance as it gets.

BOOK smells like the pages of old books. Big stacks of books. The fragrance is dry, earthy, rooty and has the feel of antiquity and old well worn leafy things but in print. Some of the earthier vetivers or mushroom/fallen leaves fragrances on the market smell sort of like this. It is hard to define the smell exactly. The primary listed notes are sandalwood, bergamot and cypress; however there are modifying notes such as eucalyptus, cucumber, balsa wood, guaiac wood and Haitian Vetiver. All of the notes flatten out the scent and create a monotone of book aroma. There is gravitas to this scent since it smells deep and strong but no part stands out. The fragrance is designed to be used as a base note which other scents from Commodity Parfum range might be added. Other fragrances are also elemental such as Whiskey, Gin, Rain, Gold, or Moss, Vetiver, etc. They have quite a variety of natural tones to choose from or you can select from your collection to make Book more interesting. I like it as-is just fine Commodity has hired talented perfumers and have told their story of the making of each fragrance interestingly. BOOK seems to bloom and grow as it warms to skin creating lots of depth that wasn't apparent when applied an hour earlier. I like the scent and like the concept. More of commodity will be in my future.

Smells like a book you've encountered before. I was going to slam it for not being true to the name, but the name is book, not books.
An OK scent, but does not stand out and not for the price.
Worth a sniff.

A nice scent on its own, and it certainly succeeds in delivering its concept. Cucumber and mint cleverly suggest crisp paper. There is a dusky herbal quality lurking in the background. Some sort of peppery spice may be clinging to the mild amber. The dry-down is woody, with a hint of vanillin suggestive of aging books. Not sweet or heavy. Pretty good, not profound but it is satisfactory.

What a wonderful name, but what a sad little fragrance. Commodity seems to be in the business of producing scents that have no relation to their names. Book smells like a $4 cucumber body spray I bought at a drug store. Start to finish my nose is assaulted by sharp aroma-chemical cucumber with a but of mustiness (musty, not musky) in the background. So happy I sampled first instead of making this a blind buy.

Book smells incredibly similar to Estee Lauder's Intuition for men (powdery-smooth 'almost vanilla' with cucumber), but with a more woody base and a much-needed longevity boost. While I don't feel that this quite smells like the vanillin produced by an aging book I admire their effort and find it an undoubtedly pleasant, even cozy fragrance.
