GIFT IDEA: SKECHERS GOWALK

It was just the other day when I felt the chill in the air I realized that the holiday season is back once again. Of course when you think of holidays you also think of really good food, trips, gifts, and a lot of spending! While a trip for the whole family (or at least with your parents) seems like an extravagant idea of a gift, you can always start from the bottom. Buy them shoes. But not just any kind of shoes.

Upon reading the title of this post, I'm pretty sure you already know where this is going.

FIRST INSTINCT

Inspired by that first moment of attraction, when two people's worlds collide and a spark is ignited, 'First Instinct' is the interpretation of that exciting first glance and the initial connection felt.

Abercrombie & Fitch's new fragrance, developed exclusively with Inter Parfums, is all about being naturally sexy, confident, and not afraid to express his deepest feelings. A rugged risk taker, he is sure to capture you with his energy and effortless charm.

Effortless charm. *ahem*
"I wanted to create a modern fragrance that balances both the fresh elements of fougere with oriental warmth. All the notes together, create a scent with worldwide appeal for the Abercrombie & Fitch man and beyond," - Phillippe Romano, First Instinct Perfumer.

With a base of amber and musk, Szechuan pepper in the mid-notes, and gin & tonic and melon to finish off the sensory experience in the top notes, 'First Instinct' is a modern masculine blend.

Let's get to know 'First Instinct' a little bit better.

TRAVEL ESSENTIALS: TRAVALO | PERFUME POD

One of my airport fears is being held up for something that's inside my hand-carry luggage. I recently experienced that on my way back home from my Taiwan trip and it was nerve-wracking! I overlooked packing this 100ml canister of Super volcanic clay mousse mask I bought from innisfree in my check-in baggage and there I was at the security checkpoint realizing that fear. But luck was on my side that day. They let me through upon checking the product (even though it's 100ml) without taking it. It was not liquid anyway. I was kinda ready to give it up since I bought it for just less than a Php1,000 but a part of me will regret it for sure if the case was otherwise. It's a good product, by the way.

Now if it was a 100ml bottle of perfume, then that'd be a different story. You know how much a good bottle of perfume costs, right? Add that to the personal fact that I love smelling good always especially on travels.

I usually bring two kinds of scents. One for when it's hot and the other, for when it's cold. But bringing two bottles of perfume can be a hassle especially at times when the trip is short and when I don't have baggage allowance. In comes Travalo.

Let's get to know the brand first.

AT HOME: FAVORI SCENTS

Back in high school, I had a girl broke up with me because I smell too good. I used to "shower" myself with Cool Water back then. I later found out that it was not the actual reason why she broke up with me. It was just her way of getting even because I first broke up with her the previous year. I actually accepted the fact that she broke up with me because I smell too good rather than me smelling bad. Long story short, she's happy now with her own family and I'm still mabango.

I like smelling good. I also like good smelling people and places. It instantly lifts up your mood. So imagine when I first got a whiff of Taiwan's stinky tofu. More about that on my Taiwan posts (soon, hopefully).

I have eight dogs at home. Three, a Japanese Spitz, a Chow Chow, and a Shih Tzu, sleep with me in my room. I know it's weird, but I also like smelling them. There's something about their smell that's comforting. But of course, I also prefer my home not to smell like dogs. So what a dog-lover got to do? Get a Favori Scents Aerator!
My current favorite scents: Peppermint (Relaxing), Verveine Fleur (Stabilizing), Pink Grapefruit (Balancing), and Ginger Flower (Passionate). Each 10ml Aerator Diffuser Oil retails at Php150.
The Leaf Aerator is perfect for air-conditioned rooms (for that hotel lobby feel). I usually add 15 to 20 drops with the water at max level depending on my mood. The best part about it other than being a local brand and its scents (of course) is that it actually cleanses the air while keeping the surrounding smelling good. Not only it smells good, you also breathe in air that is also good.
Features:

  • With color-changing display and LED illumination (not just 1 but 6 LED lights)
  • With negative ion generator
  • Increases air humidity, ideal for air-conditioned environment
  • Ultrasonic atomization to improve quality of air
  • Removes dust and smoke and reduces indoor pollution as it deodorizes and refreshens
  • Uses essential oils for aromatherapy
  • Low power consumption
  • Durable, environmentally-friendly, fashionable design
  • Quiet and silent operation, easy to operate and clean
A Leaf Aerator costs Php1,800. Other options are reed diffusers, air sprays, aroma candles, aroma pouches, diffusers, and burners.

Get your Favori Scents at these branches:
Robinsons Manila Level 1, Midtown Wing
SM Megamall Lower Ground Level, Mega A
SM Southmall 2nd Level
SM City Marikina Ground Floor
