Help us change an industry

Right now, finding a great fragrance is a complex process. The choices are overwhelming and the in-store experience is confusing. The problem is, after sampling a few fragrances our nose gets tired and can no longer distinguish what we’re smelling, it’s a guessing game.

Let's change this.

We spent the last year developing beautifully crafted scents and a unique online service. Through your support, we can launch Commodity and kickstart a modern essential — fragrances that finally fit you.

Warm Regards,

Owen & the Commodity team


Here
’s what we have planned

We created a new service called 'Scent Tailoring' that makes it easy to find a scent you love.



The Men’s Collection 

Don’t worry. There are no sweaty male models here.

We’re not about hiding behind a wall of overpowering cologne (or cologne ads)—just the opposite—the right scent is a subtle way to reveal the best aspects of your personality. It doesn’t matter if you’re an architect, a barista, or an astronaut—you need a scent that’s as stylish and hard-working as you.



The Women’s Collection

Our fragrances start with aromatic oils like sumbac jasmine from Southeast Asia, liquid myrrh from the Middle East, and ylang ylang essence from the Comoros Islands. The quality of ingredients means a premium product inside and out.

Go ahead, try Mimosa in the morning, Tea for your Yogalates class, and Wool when you get the urge to steal your boyfriend’s cologne. Pick a single signature scent or pair a fragrance for every mood. After all, it isn’t just about science or chemistry, it’s about you.



For Your Support

Your pledge will support our new model, the production of bottles, and help meet the minimums required for the fragrances. For backing us, you’ll be the first to experience the entire Commodity line with prices exclusive to Kickstarter.

Also, your feedback will help shape our upcoming Scent Tailoring service. We can’t wait to hear what you think.

Risks and challenges

Our team has experience in both production and distribution. We've spent the last year with our manufacture and fragrance partners preparing for this moment. Even so, we understand our background and experience doesn't eliminate all risks. We're still making minor adjustments to certain fragrances and the packaging process.

All has been done to avoid any potential risks in delivering Commodity on time. In any case, we'll always keep our supporters up to date.

FAQ

  • We're looking into it, however shipping fragrances internationally is really pricey (once for the samples, then once for the full-size). We want to figure out a pledge that makes sense for overseas backers without adding a crazy amount of shipping on-top.
