Gin description

Daylight Savings Time returns this month, and with the extra hours of sunlight, it’s always tempting to start a search for new spots to enjoy your favorite adult beverages.

And in the same way, a cool way to search for perfume is finding scents that mimic classic cocktails – there are wearable whiskies, the classic Bay Rum scent for men, and even fragrances that smell just like a well-made G&T.

Gin and Tonic perfumes are usually based around a prominent juniper berry note – one that can be almost aspirin-like in its bitterness, but when paired with citrus or spices can turn wonderfully light and airy on the skin.

A recent cocktail-style scent of note is called Gin, which is part of the Black Collection from the Commodity Goods line.

It starts out with a brightly astringent combination of juniper, grapefruit and lime that will have you immediately looking for the rocks glass you’ll swear it came from. The citrus against the juniper is absolutely mouth-watering - it pops and sparkles in a very inviting and effervescent way.

After the initial bright acidity burns off, Gin settles into a slightly spicy, slightly floral heart. Freesia and labdanum are paired with ginger leaf, and the effect is sharp and a bit sweet, but with the ginger still continuing to offer the astringency that Gin starts with. Both the freesia and labdanum notes offer an alluring and subdued, almost suede-like texture after all the neon-light citrus zest at the top.

The slightly puckered feel here makes Gin a top candidate also for layering with another one of Commodity’s scents to round it out a little, or with the scent of your choice.

Either way, Gin works perfectly well by itself, or you can have all sorts of adventures experimenting with how it plays with earthier or sweeter tones.

The drydown turns away from the bitterness and into more herbal territory with patchouli and a “smoky oak” accord blended with musk. There might possibly be a touch of burnt firewood in the base here, but not to a “wild beach party” level of smoke.

But even as the perfume begins its descent, the musk and patchouli continue with that slightly nose-wrinkling, back of the throat tickle that makes Gin such a unusual pleasure to experience.

Consider Gin as maybe what in the scented world might be a fantastic bartender on a great night out – a fragrance that always seems to know what you need just before you do.

It’s a strong scent, but with very tempered sillage – you won’t smell like you walked home on a broken heel after a cheap bar crawl wearing this. Gin is classy, top-shelf fun in a bottle and far too easy to keep reaching for, so please enjoy it responsibly and get home safely.

Citrus up front. Refreshing. Lack of juniper notes considering the name. Lacking the impact of Moss.

Fresh and clean like sun dried linens, reminds me of Tommy. A solid daily use scent that is mild and memorable enough to become a signature.

It took me a moment to appreciate this scent, but I really like it now. Definitely a more masculine fragrance it starts with the citrus/musk tones, then it develops to more complex yet subtle tones. I really like what Commodity is doing and I'm looking forward to layer this one with one of the other ones!

The initial scent is very, very masculine. Clean, soapy, a bit citrusy/limey, with a dash of strong clear alcohol. On my skin it does dry down into more of a sharp feminine scent. Classy and powerful. More daytime than evening. The final strains finish lightly powdered and soft with the slightest trace of juniper clinging to your skin. Not what I was expecting from the description but with repeated wear it's definitely growing on me. I would order again.

This is a beautiful fragrance, but I would say that it is a bit more masculine than I expected. It is very spicy and woodsy initially, but as I wear it throughout the day, it develops into a scent I would prefer on a man. Overall, I will definitely continue to wear it, but I doubt I would ever purchase this particular fragrance from Commodity.

This is a NEW fav. You think Gin and it does smell like Gin but in a sensual way. It warms to a long lasting scent and when layered with other Commodity fragrances you can create your own unique scent. LOVE IT will be buying a full size.

This dirty herbal scent is much too masculine for my taste. The gin-like opening of eucalyptus, juniper, and lime peel were nice, even if they don't suit my style, but there is a musky, dirty patchouli at the heart that is a deal-breaker for me. It smells rather like a muddy evergreen forest in the autumn, which is great on a hike, or on other people, or even as a candle in my house, just not on my own skin. (Scentbird kept recommending this to me. I don't trust their algorithms)

Definitely leans masculine but if you like that, a lady can (and should) wear it! To me it smells like a drunk Christmas Tree. I get piney juniper berries (like a tasty G&T), craft store eucalyptus, and sandalwood. It's spicy, sexy and crisp!

Straight up men's cologne. Not unisex at all. I couldn't see a woman wearing this. Even for a men's calogne it's smells pretty basic and done before.
