Commodity Tonka
I love this fragrance! It transports me to winter, snow days as a kid, snuggling in my pjs, after a hot bath wrapped in a nice fluffy blanket with the rain & wind howling outside! I find it to be such a "wrap around me scent" that wears like my own personal security blanket! Beware, this fragrance is strong & lasts well into the night! I can smell Tonka even on a day when I've chosen to go fragrance bare & I'll climb under the covers at night. I'm suddenly wrapped in the warmth of Tonka & the heartwarming memories of my childhood flooding back! I've found people either love Tonka or they can't stand it. Keep in mind, the people that dislike it, don't like fragrance period. So if scents give you migraines, you might want to stay away from this one. However, I get migraines & it really just depends on the scent. Tonka does not give me migraines. So take away what you like fellow migraine sufferers! Now, on the flip side, I have received so many compliments & "What are you wearing?" type questions when I wear Tonka! Normally I'd say this a fall/winter fragrance & not the 113° days before adding humidity, which makes "the feels like," closer to 120°+++! Welcome to the DFW metroplex! However, this is a "memory fragrance" for me & anytime seems the right time, especially when I want to feel the emotions the memories evoke! I don't make the rules, I just break them! I've found fragrances that evoke all kinds of emotions! However, it is rare to find a fragrance that pulls the thread of a memory from our past! And just keeps pulling! Even rarer yet is to find a scent that just outright kicks you in the gut! That is a review for a another day and a different fragrance! Hopefully Scentbird will start carrying Masion Margelia so I can tell that story. I still have this tiny sample I keep with me everywhere I go. When I smell it it's like Alice falling down the Rabbit Hole! Can I add all of the Derek Lam 10 Crosby Street & Atelier Cologne brands to the Scentbird request list too?

Not a fan!
I had high hopes for this fragrance as I loved Gold Commodity. This is very powdery & over powering. Could never bring myself to wear this after the first spray.

LOL
LOL - for "laugh out loud", and "little old lady". Tonka bean has a very powdery scent. This fragrance is a lovely blend of the powdery tonka, warm sandalwood, and creamy almond. I get no fruit, or flowers, just a soft, sexy powder. Give it a chance to bloom on the skin, or under your clothes. It will smell much better than straight out of the bottle, or just on your wrist.

Wasn't sure I was going to like this but turns out, it's very nice. I'm glad I chose to add this to my collection

Smells nice
This fragrance smells nice. It's sweet. Gourmand-like. However, I don't find that the Commodity fragrances have good projection/sillage or longevity. I swear it lasts all of 5-10 minutes.

Vanilla on steroids
Sweet, powdery but kinda masculine too. It makes me feel invincible when I wear it. Like a power suit in fragrance form.

It was way to strong and it reminded me of an old lady. It was not my style or something I would wear. I will be tossing this one.

I did like it but it's bordering a little too much on the unisex line so I probably won't be using it as often as I thought I would. It smells really great though, it's just not for me.

Smells great! I do have to reapply. I haven't received any compliments yet on it so we shall see. I also haven't gone nose blind to it which I usually do with other fragrances. Would definitely order again!

I love the fresh powder smell with the bold sandalwood smell lingering after you pass. I sprayed my daughter and had her walk past me so I could see what others would smell from me LoL. Exactly what I was going for!!

This is a step up in amber/vanilla/ sweet from its sister scent Gold. It's amazing, it has a hint of clean laundry to it to make it sophisticated and delicious! Anything by Commodity is well worth it.

After the dry down on my skin, tonka smells really nice. it is very light and smells like a combination of baby oil, baby powder and a light musk. The problem is the scent does not last long.

It's light and doesn't seem to stay on long, but it's sort of a spicy floral while it lasts.

Really like this scent- reminds me of the men's version of Santa Fe but sweeter. Opening notes are powdery and slightly medicinal (like the smell of carmex) , but fast turns into gourmand bliss! A little on the woody side of sweet. Very nice!
Rated4on the scale of0to10

As others have mentioned, at first the opening notes are as if you slapped yourself with a hand full of powder, however the middle and base notes are quite intriguing and warm, very sweet, almost like cinnamon with a touch of tobacco, quite sexy. It definitely is a warm scent with great lasting power. It's not so much of a spring/summer scent but very well could be if mixing it as a cocktail with a fresher Commodity scent, like Bergamot, Gin, or even Book!

When you first spray this scent, it is like you have just been dusted in powder. After awhile it does wear down to more of a musky leather, slightly coffeehouse scent. It doesn't last very long on me, but still enjoy it.

This is just a little To sweet strong for me. I like it after it wears for a few hours. I can honestly say I wouldn't buy this. Although I do think they are great lasting perfumes. I can't wait to try the others.

This is not terrible, but reading the card for the March 'scent of the month', I do wish I'd have gotten that instead, as this just isn't quite what I'd hoped. That said, it is powdery and dry, not quite as warm as I'd hoped with the tonka and nutmeg, which are present, but I smell more of the leather and something sort of musky and woodsy than those notes. That said, I suspect this would actually play quite warm and cozy on a man, as these notes that read more masculine tend to dry out and cool down on my skin, I've noticed.

Strong at first but once it settles it's really lovely. Can't really see this being a masculine scent - it's on the sweeter side. The sandalwood is very apparent and on the powdery side so stay away if you don't like scents like that. The floral is non-existent. It is definitely more of a "mysterious" scent and I love it.
