Something New: United Colors of Benetton's Body Mist Collection...

Benetton did it again!  Last year, the brand got us all giddy with the release of their new perfumes: Hot Gold, Cold Silver and two new scents for their Colori line.  I'm a long-time fan of Hot (the original) and Paradiso Inferno, and this year, their new collection just made me a lot more excited and craving for more.  And knowing Benetton, I am pretty sure this is just the beginning.

The New Body Mists Collection

With 12 scents to choose from, I'm gonna bet my entire makeup collection that you'd be able to find a scent or two that would match your personality.  Yes, I am that certain! (winks)  The collection has fruity, floral and even exotic scents.  I prefer fruity, that's why I am loving Warming Mango so much!  

Inspired by diversity, the core value of this new collection of 12 scents, was imagined around the most inspiring and energizing ingredients from all around the world.  

These babies are a good alternative to perfumes if you're the type who prefer light scents.  The scent stays too..probably for a good 3hrs on me.  But of course, it depends on your body chemistry too.   They are priced at Php499.95 (when you buy in SM Dept Store) or Php495 (if from FReSH Fragrance Bar) for a 250ml bottle. 

By the way, this new collection was launched at Early Bird Breakfast Club at The Fort.  They have an amazing menu, and yes, that means I'll be visiting them again soon!  

Half serving of a salad.  Yes, their servings are quite big!

This one, I ate all by myself.  It's Adobo Surprise, I think.  And I so love Adobo!  I just wish it came with a sunny side up egg instead.

Thanks again to Emily and the rest of her team for inviting me, and giving me the chance to not only reconnect with my fellow blogger friends but also with the brand I've always loved.
