What’s In My Bag

I can’t really remember if I ever shared a What’s In My Bag post or if I did, I’m quite sure that’s years ago – and outdated! And since some of you have been requesting this post, here it is! I normally love to tote huge bags simply because I can put in so much stuff! I like to be a girl scout – someone who’s always ready whenever I or the people I’m with need something. If I can only bring my entire house with me wherever I go, I would. Well, this is somehow my car’s situation! LOL! Unfortunately, carrying around so much things in my bag has been taking a toll on my back. This is why I’ve been trying to switch to smaller bags. Obviously, my dilemma is how to let go of the things I think I “need”. Well, I guess I deserve a pat on the back for finally being able to select my non-negotiables – for now. Anyway here are the usual things I bring inside my bag. Of course, sometimes I can’t just resist adding more depending where I’m going. Wallet This is probably the heaviest of all!!! Wait… not because of the moolah! LOL! All those membership cards and receipts make my wallet explode! This I have yet to fix – what I should bring and leave behind. I tried...

Jo Malone Cologne Intense

Last week, I attended the preview of Jo Malone Cologne Intense, the newest fragrance line of Jo Malone London. And I must say, Cologne Intense definitely takes a different approach to fragrance. The scents are created with precious ingredients that are particularly deep and rich. Jo Malone Cologne Intense Inspiration The story of Cologne Intense began in the Middle East where heritage and culture have a special place for scent. For thousands of years, fragrance has been approached ritualistically. Multiple oils or attars such as oud, rose, or jasmine, are layered onto the skin. Even clothing and hair are infused with vapour collected from scented chips called bakhoor, before spraying scent. Our imaginations were captured. The Jo Malone London Creative Studio took the rich and rare ingredients so loved in the Middle East and gave them a modern character. Each has its own surprising Jo Malone London twist. Jo Malone Cologne Intense Packaging Jo Malone London has been known for its simple yet elegant packaging. For Cologne Intense, they are using black to reflect the deeper intensity of the fragrance. It has simple apothecary bottles with a silver stopper and special silver Jo Malone London labels. Jo Malone Cologne Intense: The Fragrance The name says it all – INTENSE. And they are not kidding. When I first smelled Jo Malone Cologne Intense, I was blown away. All I could...

THE GIRL by Tommy Hilfiger

Most of us are probably familiar with the classic Tommy Girl. I owned a bottle or two of that when I was in high school. It’s one of those unique scents every girl would just need to have. Recently, Tommy Hilfiger launched THE GIRL by Tommy Hilfiger, a new eau de toilette and campaign featuring Gigi Hadid, Tommy Hilfiger’s global ambassador for womenswear, accessories and fragrance. The new scent is anchored in a dynamic digital campaign, which reflects her optimistic attitude, confidence and effortlessly cool style. As part of her ambassadorship, Hadid has also teamed with the iconic American designer to create her first capsule collection, which further celebrates her modern take on style fused with Hilfiger’s signature “classic American cool” heritage. Inspired by Hadid’s free-spirited and magnetic personality, THE GIRL by Tommy Hilfiger is crisp and fresh. The scent opens with a burst of green pear, violet leaf and green fig leaves before moving to the heart of velvety jasmine petals and silky muguet. Cedarwood and cashmeran envelop the fragrance for its signature finish that captures Hadid’s unique sense of individuality and confidence. The first time I opened the bottle and smelled it, I knew it was for me! It’s so fresh, something like a pick-me-up scent. It’s light and brings good vibes for some reason. I find it very different from the classic Tommy Girl. To be...

Jo Malone Basil & Neroli Review

Jo Malone Philippines just launched the newest fragrance, Basil & Neroli. A London lark London at its most fashionably young and fun. Flirt with oh-so floral neroli and a delicious wink of basil. Quintessentially British, always playful. Fresh, fun, full of adventure. My Thoughts on Jo Malone Basil & Neroli The first time I tried Jo Malone Basil & Neroli, I knew it’s going to be one of my favorites. There’s something earthy and clean with this scent, at the same time, uplifting. It’s refreshing and lively. It’s simple, yet sophisticated. It has floral scent with green facets. Jo Malone made a perfect mix that can appeal to both the young and the young at heart. It’s also a unisex fragrance that’s great for both day and night. And what made me fall in love with Basil & Neroli even more? The longer it stays on my skin, the fresher it gets – making it a good choice for our tropical and humid weather. As with other Jo Malone fragrances, it can be worn alone or combined with other fragrances for more depth or to create a signature scent. The bad news? You need to sit tight as it’s going to be available on September 2016! But I can promise you, it’s worth the wait!!!  Tasting Notes Top: Basil Heart: Neroli Base: White Musk Jo Malone Basil & Neroli Philippines Prices The Basil & Neroli...
