Bursting with Fruit Flavor

>> Monday, February 4, 2013

Kids who grew up in the 1990s know this --- Troy Dyer {played by Ethan Hawke} uttered those words in the movie definitive of that generation --- Reality Bites. Back then, I didn't really understand when he said that --- and even know, that still confuzzles me. However, as I spritzed on and on and on, United Colors of Benetton's new line of body mists, mine in Warming Mango, it was the single thought I had in mind: I was bursting with fruit flavor.

You could say Benetton is making a foray into the world of Bath and Body Works meets Victoria's Secret with the exotic scents. My experienced nose couldn't match any of their scents with any other! When I and a few Manila beauty bloggers were invited over to see and smell the fragrances over brunch, I spent a long time pondering which one was "me."

Kargadora 1: So anong kakainin natin? *while munching two jars of fries*
Kargadora 2: Eggs Ben and Adobo?
Kargadora 1: Eh what about Adobo and risotto? Let's eat both.
Kargadora 2: Ok, but let's get French Toast Fondue after.


... and finally, after a long time ...

Warming Mango: The fragrance evokes all the Indian gentleness and dresses you with a juicy mango pulp.

Top Notes: Pineapple, Ripe Mango, Star fruit

I love mango scent. I used to have a liquid powder product in Mango, an old forgotten drugstore brand and everyone said such nice things about how I smelled when I wore it. I will give this Mango scent a try.

I love you blog. I hope you find time to visit mine. Following you on bloglovin :)

Why, thank you :) Comments make my day!
Cheers, Tara
