Is there any better pick-me-up in perfume than the bitter citrus of bergamot? It’s ideal for reviving the senses in the late afternoon, when the warmth of the sun or a delicious meal is making you drowsy.
Commodity Good’s Bergamot is both bitter and cool, with zesty green top notes of clementine and green mandarin, as well as bergamot.
This tart opening trio of bright citrus lowers itself down into an overstuffed pillow of sweet jasmine and chilled geranium, and it feels like the 500-thread count sheets on a five-star hotel’s bed– crisp, clean, and silky.
The vetiver and patchouli in the base complement the green, stemmy mandarin from the top notes well, like a patch of well-tended soil that offers up its own herbal tones as the citrus trees grow.
Perfumer Stephen Nilsen wanted this perfume to fee like “a refreshing tonic that awakens the soul,” and this perfume will awaken it refreshed and ready to greet the day again.
