The Baccarat Rouge 540 by MAISON FRANCIS KURKDJIAN (P14,650/70mL)is a fragrance that feels like second skin. It opens with the luminous scents of jasmine and saffron but then softens into a prominent, woodsy blend of amber accord and freshly cut cedar, settling into the skin with a desirable depth and a dash of freshness. Sophisticated, elegant, and sultry in all the best ways, it’s a high performance gourmand bottle that with one spritz leaves a lasting impression wherever you go.” – Peewee Reyes-Isidro, Editor-In-Chief


“In these uncertain times, I can’t help but fall in love with the idea of first love: it’s carefree, uncomplicated and brimming with optimism. These are the feelings evoked by LANVIN Modern Princess Blooming (P4950/90mL), the latest flanker from the bestselling Modern Princess line. The initial notes of pink grapefruit, mandarin and frosty watermelon give the fragrance a juicy, sorbet quality, like the undulating rush of sweetness of a first date. This is followed by a dazzling bouquet of osmanthus, damask rose, and jasmine. After, a kiss good night via warm musk and cedarwood. Ah, to be young again.” – Trina Epilepsia Boutain, Managing Editor


“I remember falling in love with fragrances because of how easily it can captivate anyone. My recent affair is with NARCISO RODRIGUEZ For Her Eau De Toilette (P6250/100mL). I have always been attracted to warm musky scents, but this fragrance adds a fresh and modern take to it by mixing in the floral notes of African orange flower and bergamot that partners up well with its vanilla, amber, and vetiver base. Daring but sweet, it leaves you with a tame yet still sensual and mysterious appeal to leave your lover wanting more.” – Mia Castro, Beauty and Features Writer


“I love CHLOÈ Nomade (P6,398/75 mL) because it reminds me of adventure and the outdoors with its floral chypre composition that evokes nature’s freedom. I love traveling and exploring, and since I can’t do that right now, this bottle allows me to have that vision of escape through its contrasting notes. The top accords of intense oakmoss and white musk are balanced with the softness from its notes of mirabelle plum and freesia that feel like a breath of fresh air. It’s a light yet still exhilarating scent that gets me excited for my future adventures.” – Jeb Fronda, Fashion Editor


“I started using this perfume early on in my career and it reminds me of how I shouldn’t be too hard on myself. A scent that’s fit for every free woman, the VALENTINO Donna (P6600/100mL) is a floral fragrance made with accords of Italian bergamot and Bulgarian rose that reminds you of a fresh start, and its notes of iris absolute, patchouli, and vanilla give its warm familiarity. Self-love isn’t as easy as you think, but when I smell something as intense yet pure as this scent, it brings me back to the main reason why I’m on this path.” – Lyn Alumno, Fashion Associate
