I've always loved perfumes. Prepping up will never be complete without a spritz or two (even more!) of my favorite scent. Retouching includes another round of spritzing, so as expected, I can finish up a bottle in less than 2 months. And since I alternate scents, I definitely have to set aside a chunk of my budget to keep up with this "addiction."
I did try to look for a way to save some moolah by checking out some of those imitations, but never really liked how it would smell after some time. I even tried making my own, by mixing fragrance oils and transferring them to atomizer sprays but eventually grew tired of it.
So when I got an invite to a Zen Zest event where we will be presented with their Eu de Toilettes, I just knew it will put an end to my wallet's predicament but not to my love with scents.
The event was held in Chateau 1771 at El Pueblo in Ortigas. It's a stone's throw away from where I live but I still came in late. Yeah, I'm such a bad girl when it comes to being punctual.
Carla Abellana, is the new face of Zen Zest
Zen Zest is not really new to me. Their room and linen spray is my favorite but I gotta admit, this will be my first time to check out their Eau de Toilettes.
Chic packaging, high-quality fragrance oils for an affordable price of Php200 for a 50ml bottle! What's even greater is that it's hypoallergenic. I've tried some perfumes in the past that gave me allergies. This one doesn't! Aside from that, it doesn't leave nasty marks on my clothes.
each table has all of their scents for us to try out and coffee beans to make sure we can clearly distinguish one scent from the other
We seriously had a hard time picking out our favorites!
There was never a dull moment during the presentation, as we altogether tried to associate each of the scents for men with err, our ex-s. We were laughing and giggling like teenagers. The event was light, fun and I can say it's one of the few events that I really enjoyed.
Here's a few snaps with my fellow bloggers:
Michelle Asence - Fontelera, the founder of Zen Zest
I just got so inspired by Michelle, after admitting that Zen Zest is the result of her being heartbroken. Can you believe that? Not everybody could be that focused when brokenhearted...definitely not me! LOL. With the success of Zen Zest now, it's a clear evidence that there definitely is a reason why certain things happen. In her case, it was to give way for something as great as Zen Zest.
