Back when I was still dating, to look and smell good were easy peasy. I had all the time to take care of myself but I still made sure I consider my pocket. I’m wearing branded imported perfumes but it wasn’t the whole bottle that I’m talking here. I just thank the stores in malls where I can buy at least 10ml of my chosen perfume.
Now that I’m a mother of two who goes out only during weekends, I don’t have time anymore to drop by at the mall stall just for a perfume. I mean, right now, ‘malling’ is always a trip to kids playroom, kids shopping section, restaurants/fastfoods and groceries. Shopping for me and Fred is always our last priority.
OK, so back to perfume, as a very busy mother, I no longer go for branded scents. I prefer now the ones that is not very strong but good enough to last for hours, something light that my daughters will surely like.
Thankfully, I was given a chance to try 2 of the Eau de Parfum collections from Inspired Gifts PH, an online gift shop selling personalized, handcrafted, and sourced-out gifts for all occasions. It was initiated by Medelyn Menguito who recently completed her first few bottles of eau de parfum.
The first bottle that I tried was Aeries Eau de Parfum. It’s a combined sweet scents of raspberries, strawberries, blackcurrant, magnolia and lilies. Louise even said she loved it and wanted to try it as well. After hours of being active in mall and an hour in the playground, I could still smell the scent from my little girl who was sweating that time. When I wore it, it also lasted for hours and one thing I also liked was that my 10 month old Martina seemed to like it, she seemed not bothered by my smell which is good.
The second bottle was May Eau de Parfum. It’s made of a combination of rose aromatic oils and citrusy oils with hints of water lily, magnolia, white violet, carnation, and ginger. Fred loves this scent more, maybe because it smelled similar to some famous imported brands that I tried before when we’re still dating. Honestly, I loved the fact how this scent has evoked Fred’s memories. Surely, I’ll be wearing this perfume when it’s date time (oh I hope this will happen soon).
Both bottles are priced at Php 180 for 30ml, not bad right? You can easily purchase them online along with other scents, there are also available choices for men.
