When I was about 18 years old, I had a boyfriend. He was part Filipino and part African-American. He looks like Will Smith and Craig David rolled into one. He has a well proportioned body and melodious voice to match. Any 18 year old would say he is perfect. But then again, he was a ramp/print ad model. It means that you are not the only one fantisizing about him.
Why did I include him in my introduction? Because he was one of the models of United Colors of Benetton. There was one advertisement here in the Philippines before for UCOB, the advert depicted different races which in turn means different colors, united. He appeared on a UCOB billboard as well as newspaper and magazine ads for UCOB. When my aunt gave me this perfume, it kind of remind me of him. For me, he was forever associated with the brand. This perfume makes me relive our short-life relationship.
I never had any regrets about having a relationship with him but the relationship was not based on love. Young as I was, I wanted to experiment.
Like our relationship though, this perfume reminds me of orange blossoms and citrusy feel. You know the kind when you see your crush and you have butterflies in your stomach? Yes, that is it.
The smell is really feminine. Soft and subtle, good for that days where you just want to be charming and young and lovely. This makes you feel the warmth of the sun and the kiss of the morning dew or perhaps the tiny drops of the misty rain.
This perfume reminds me of walks in the park, laughing with the guy that makes your heart skip a beat, or a not so intense eye to eye contact while having a light conversation with him.
For me this perfume is puppy love, soft kisses and pecks on the cheek, a loving hug and first loves.
It is like reminiscing about relationships with no qualms and no worries.
