I was excited to try this out, after seeing the description and other reviews of it smelling just like an old book in a musty library. I love that smell. This fragrance however just did not do it for me. I think it smells like a hamster cage (all I smell is cedar) and my fiancee thinks it smells like pickles. Not exactly the scent I was hoping for.

Love, love, love this scent! Love the spicy, sometimes floral scent! A little strong at first, but the longer you wear it, the softer, and warmer it gets! Will most definitely purchase the full size!

It was definitely not what I expected, but I was pleasantly surprised. It wasn't something I would've bought for myself, but I'm glad I tried it. Kind of a spicy smell, nice for winter.

I prefer citrus based scents; I ordered this to step out of my comfort zone but it's just not me. The scent to me is leathery and woody. It's masculine and old. Kind of grandfatherly... if your grandfather worked in an old, musty library.

The cucumber is definitely a first note, but quickly falls behind the deeper sandalwood base notes. After a long day at work it stays present. It ends as a smooth and complex mixture of Amber, cedar and lavender.

No. Why is this called book? The name makes me think of libraries... wood, leather, musky odors. Instead, this smells just like a cucumber, and not just a regular cucumber, but a cucumber that sat at the back of the fridge for too long and has started to ferment... so it smells like cucumber soda pop. If that's your thing, go for it. But beware - the scent lasts all of 30 minutes, which, for me was a blessing since I did not like the scent.

This one was not for me. I took a chance with the cologne of the month. For me it smelled a little to strong to wear in the office, and a little to strong to wear on a date. I will be giving the November and December cologne of the month a try.

Surprised at the number of negative reviews for Book. I liked this one so much that I actually bought a non-subscription one from Scent Bird. Great for the colder times of the year. Strong and woodsy. I do agree with some reviews that it does not last too long throughout the day; however, wear it for the moment that you want to be noticed. Aside from the Burberry Brit Rhythm, my girl gets off just from smelling Book!

I have yet to smell a cologne like it. I agree that it does smell like an old book but by that I mean old and musty but interesting as well. A lot of people have been intrigued by it but more in a "you smell kinda good kinda strange" way than outright compliment. I would recommend one spray for work. It won't smell much but too much of this scent isn't a good thing. Also if we're being honest I think this is definitely not a good scent for a woman.

Warning: not a date night cologne. This scent isnt a terrible scent per se but its definitely not food. I wouldnt wear it again after im done with this sample. The opening of it smelled like catholic church incense mixed with rancid cucumber which was horrible but it then settled down into the smell they named the cologne after...an old book bit smoky.

I am disappointed in the Scentbird experience. I ordered over a month ago. Nothing was shiped so I sent an email. Finally someone replied that they did not have my house address, only my street name so that is why it did not ship???? OK, maybe I screwed up but I gave them the benefit of the doubt (They sure were able to bill my credit card without the street address ????). I gave them the house number they were missing. Later received an email that I would be getting the cologne of the month in another 7-10 business days. Whatever.....I waited a month and I love the concept of getting a different cologne every month. A week has gone by and I get this email this morning; It's "Show and Smell" Time! Share your experience with the Scentbird community. It will give you better recommendations and help other WOMEN to decide if they want to try it or skip it I am pissed at this point. I am a MALE, not a female and have not received ANYTHING (Perfume or cologne). I email them and give them this information in a polite way...........Nothing in return. Not happy at this point. Tomorrow I will figure out how to cancel the whole thing. Kinda of bummed.......Only certain colognes have worked well with my body chemistry. Was looking forward to Finding some different ones that would. Ive been wearing the same 2 colognes for the last 2 years and they are pretty expensive. Oh well..........Sorry for the rant, I NEVER do this but didn't want others to get duked out of their money.

It's not a terrible scent. I was expecting something a litter more woody, but it has an earthy scent to it. It also has a peppery spicy undertone that kind of threw me off. I don't hate it, but it's not my favorite. It will not be something that I go to everyday; it is a bit too much for my personal taste. It is more of a special occasion scent.

This cologne is a mix of cucumbers and a wood scent, but all that shows through is the cucumber. The scent doesn't get a "wow" reaction of any of the ladies I've had smell it. It starts off strong and overbearing and over time fades into a pleasant "just out of the shower" kind of smell. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone unfortunately. I think a cologne should be appealing and cause a positive reaction, I never received that kind of reaction from this product.

This scent was very nice as a scent in itself, but for me, it was too cucumber melon. It's nice for a sort of neutral scent, strong but not too overbearing if you like it. I had to wash it off half way through my day because for me, it was too much; it seems like more of a candle scent than a scent for the body. Like a cucumber musk.

I normally never write reviews about my purchases but on this one I feel obligated. Before I review the frangrance I need to warn people that if you create an account and add fragrances to your queue, most likely you won't receive what you request. I created a line up of four fragrances and received one that I asked for (the first one). Now I've received this one which I didn't pick and have come to find out my queue has been deleted. Oh well, I guess they ran out of the ones I wanted, but they should have at least notified me before they randomly selected for me. If this is how it's going to be I'm going to cancel my subscription. Now on to the review of the fragrance I recieved. It called Book by Commodity. This has got to be the worst cologne I've ever smelled! When I first tested it, I did pick up a familiar earthy musty scent but couldn't quite put my finger on it. I figured it was just different and figured okay, I'll just wear it for a day to try it out. Let me tell you...this has got to be one of the longest days ever! I walked around embarassed to even stand next to people it smelled so bad. I couldn't wait to get home and wash this stuff off. I was so anxious to read other people's reviews to see what others had to say about it and one person hit the nail right on the head, solving the mystery odor I couldn't figure out. THIS STUFF SMELLS LIKE STRAIGHT UP DILL OIL! No thanks! Why would I want to smell like a pickle? I rate this a 1 only because it won't let you give it a zero.

I was hoping for the best, but this Book doesn't have a happy ending. Most likely getting it's name from the smell you get after a flood at the local library. I'm sure it's fine for some folks, but this one just hit me the wrong way..... also, it has a VERY short shelf life on my skin....Nope, this Book is going back to the library.

Very different than what I usually wear but in a good way. It is a very woodsy, herbal sent. The top notes remind me of dill and as it settles it becomes more of a vetiver, leather, slight musk smell. It's quite interesting. I would try it again, but not sure I would buy an entire bottle. Give it a try!

OK...I normally wear and prefer sweeter maybe more feminine smelling colognes like BVLGARI AQVA.....COMMODITY BOOK is not sweet, nor is it feminine. It's earthy, woodsy, masculine. It has many many layers to it. I like it. But for me it's more of a serious scent. It's not "light and fun" like Burberry Brit.....Or one of those sweeter scents. BOOK is complex and more mature - but smells great.

This scent is super-duper woodsy. When I have it on, I feel like I've got a garland of juniper around my neck. Upon application, it almost makes your eyes water but becomes much more pleasant as it fades. I've learned to put it on a few hours before a date so as to not overpower her with its woodland blast (a much more suitable name). Overall, not terrible, but not one I would buy.

This fragrance is almost an exact dupe of Le Labo's Santal 33. Book is slightly greener with more of the cucumber coming through. Santal 33 is somewhat sweeter although I would not describe either scent to be sweet. I love Santal 33 and I love Book. You could wear Book during the day and save the pricier Santal 33 for night.

If darker scents work better for you, avoid this at all costs. I've known for a while that cucumber just does not merge well with my own scent, but I wanted to try this out anyway because I love books. Con: On the wrong person, it smells like a moldy book. Not musty. Moldy. Pro: On the right person, it's light and fruity, and the woodsy notes are there but easy to miss if you aren't looking. Give this to someone who prefers lighter scents. Avoid if you don't like cucumber, or in my case, cucumber doesn't like you. Five stars because it *IS* a good scent, it just doesn't work for me. On the person I gave it to, it smelled wonderful. It also is very long lasting!

I have been a huge supporter of Sentbird, and plan to be a lifetime subscriber. I've done my homework on all of my colognes except for this one, when I got behind on updating my queue. I received this, "Book", and i couldn't put it down fast enough... I am not the pickiest of people, but WOW this was bad. I got notes of coconut meets curry... As if someone fed a infant Indian food, used a half of a coconut as the diaper, bottled it, and titled it Book. I gave it away to someone I'm not that fond of, and updated my queue to avoid future scents that foul smell.

It remind me Indigo, first smell is strong but it fade out soft. woodsy. green. I will try another commodity..

Coming off the heels of a love affair with Malin + Goetz's Moroccan Fig, I found Book in the Scentbird recommendations. This was a spot-on recommendation, as now my love affair has become a sordid love triangle between Book and Moroccan Fig! It's very woodsy, earthy, green, much more so than Moroccan Fig. There's a punch of cedar for the first hour or so, and as it dries down a musk & incense feel comes through. One of my other favorites is Versace's Crystal Noir, and I feel a lot of it in Book. If you like green, woodsy smells, this would be a good choice.

I loved this scent since I first smelled it at Sephora. It's simple but complex at the same time. I like that it has a singular woodsy scent when you first smell it--it's good for layering with other scents to make them warmer. But it also develops thru out the day nicely on it's own.

Smells like cedar spray that you'd use in a closet. I do like that smell but wish the cedar wasn't so powerful. The overwhelming cedar note lessens after a few hours but I couldn't detect any other undernotes. Lasts 5 to 6 hours on me without fading. If you like cedar this is for you. I wish it were a bit more complex.

It's like reading an old book that was kept in a drawer with sandalwood essential oils, while drinking a G&T with cucumber. It's musky, musty (in a good way), and woodsy. Not sweet, floral or fruity at all. Could be unisex, but doesn't smell overtly masculine or feminine.
