My Favorite UCB Body Mists Available at FReSH Fragrance Bar


January 25, 2013

United Colors of Benetton (UCB) Body Mist Launch
Early Bird Breakfast Club
Unit C Ground Floor, Fort Pointe 2 Building
The Fort Complex, 28th St.,
Fort Bonifacio Global City

Last Friday, I was dilly-dallying whether to attend the launching of United Colors of Benetton Body Mists or not. Since you are now reading this post, it means that I went ahead and drove alone to The Fort Bonifacio Global City. Thank God, there's no heavy traffic along EDSA. I reached the venue in less than an hour... whew!

 Arousing Watermelon and Refreshing Apple Body Mists 250ml PhP 499.95

I arrived 30 minutes earlier than the specified time on the invite but Emily, Brand Manager of Benetton Fragrances, was already there at Early Bird Breakfast Club. She gave a brief description about the 12 new variants of UCB Body Mists and how they were conceptualized.

Find out which two variants are my favorite after the break...

The other six awe-inspiring United Colors of Benetton Body Mists are Smoothing Orchid, Magnetizing Jasmine, Cheering Rose, Stimulating Aqua,Sparkling Guarana and Energizing Pitanga.

 Charming Frangipani and Warming Mango

Without further ado, here are my two top picks...

Arousing Watermelon 250 ml (8.3 fl.oz.)

The scent reminds the unexpected South African vibe and lets you feel the fresh watermelon bite.

Top Notes: Aquatic Notes, Watermelon, Starfruit
Heart Notes: Lotus Flower, Jasmine, White Peach
Dry Down: Transparent woods, Musk, Amber

I love the sweet, fruity scent of Arousing Watermelon. You can spritz this after your workout or after a long day. The scent literally perks you up!

Charming Frangipani 250ml (8.3 fl. oz.)

The fragrance reminds the warmth of Nicaragua and makes you succumb to the charms of a Fragipani flower interpretation.

Top Notes: Almond, Mandarin, Sweet Orange
 Heart Notes: Fragipani Flower, Orange Flower, Jasmine
Dry Down: Sandalwood, Vanilla, Heliotrope

I was looking for a Vanilla spritz amongst the 12 body mists in this new collection. I was wondering how can United Colors of Benetton came up with a collection without including Vanilla. After smelling all 12, I finally caught up with Charming Fragipani and, sigh, I finally found The One! Saving the best for last?

Btw, did you know that Fragipani is also known as Kalachuchi?
