Commodity

commodity 1Skärmavbild 2015-03-26 kl. 10.39.55Like Em I´m in love with fragrances and scents; perfumes, candles & room sprays you name it. As I´m also addicted to Swedish fragrance house Byredo it´s not very surprising that I really like the packaging of the brand Commodity too. Too similar….? Not even gonna go there but the idea they have where if you are unsure of what scent you want – they send a kit of 10 testers for you to try at home and once you have decided you can order the bigger size. Your own scent lab before choosing instead of standing stressed in the store with to many scents going on, the perfect idea.

Wishlist

It´s so nice to become a tourist in your own city and this is where I preferably would check in for the night. For more of this place, see here.

Graanmarkt 13, Antwerp

Owner´s Tim Van Geloven & Ilse Cornelissens first started what is one of Antwerp´s most chic shopping & dining destinations. Since many of their guests often talked about liking what they saw so much they wanted to move in – the idea of making the two top floors of the building into an apartment for rent came up. With Vincent Van Duysen´s help this is the result. So beautiful and serene.
