Scents, just like songs, can bring back fond memories. Maybe that’s why I make it a habit to spritz on a bottle of perfume everyday – whether I’m just hanging out at home or about to head out for work. It gives me that boost of confidence and kick of energy to go through my day with a smile.
“Soleil et Lune”, French for Sun and Moon, believes beauty goes beyond one’s wardrobe and accessories. A woman can feel beautiful, confident and alluring, through the power of scent. Founders Kristine Dee and Elizabeth Supetran created The Beauty Mission to provide a homegrown Filipino brand that embodies their philosophy of high quality and authenticity of ingredients. They created the fragrance brand because they felt like there were limited choices locally and international perfume brands placed a hefty price tag on every bottle. My first time to try out the brand was when I visited The Park at Shangrila Mall last summer. I actually thought it was an imported brand so I was shocked to find out that it’s locally made when I read the info sheet that came with this package.
Soleil et Lune is very affordable at only P780.00 for 30 ML or P1180 for 50 ML bottle. The quality of the scents are of international standard while the sleek and simple design of the bottle looks very elegant – something you’d like to see displayed on your dresser. Out of all the scents, my favorite one would probably be SIMONE (above) because it reminds me of shower-fresh fragrances and at the same time, the fruity notes matches my bubbly personality.
Our generation is living in a very stressful world right now because of the constant changes and developments in technology. You have to stay updated to simply keep up with what’s happening or else you’ll get left behind. That’s why I believe that we shouldn’t be afraid to indulge in everyday luxuries like Soleil et Lune. You can choose from these six options:
Exhibits fresh citrus with a hint of musk, for the life-savvy woman whose strength emanates from the inside. Herbaceous bay leaves, vibrant grapefruit, and subtle floral accords with moist and sharp blackberries in the opening. The intoxicating drydown is filled with the smokiness of vetiver and the distinctive warmth of cedarwood.
Bursts of fruity essence for the woman who uplifts like the sunshine wherever she goes. The opening is fresh with crisp, dewy green notes, blackcurrants and petit grain. This is followed by a lusciously ripe heart of succulent nectarines and acacia honey, all resting on a warm base of vetiver, peach and plums.
Gives out the scent of spring blooms, for the classic woman who is always ready to greet the day with confidence. She has a tenderness tinged with a voluptuous sensuality. The fragrance opens with a juicy burst of red apples, followed by a blushing bouquet of pink peony, jasmine and carnation, and delicate rose. The drydown is filled with the smooth, gentle softness of suede.
A delightful concoction that opens with bright mandarin and juicy pear notes. Elegant rose and transparent jasmine are combined with tropical solar notes in the heart, creating an indulgent effect; while sweet peach and dry amber notes linger in the hypnotic drydown.
A celebratory recipe that blends sparkling bergamot and mandarin with soothing marine tonalities in the head notes. Velvety rose petals and warm spices complement the earthy rawness of fig leaves in the heart. The drydown is both sultry and balmy with vetyver, dry amber and musk.
Inspired by the coastal resorts that line the Mediterranean Sea, this scent opens with the summery liveliness of bergamot, mandarin and crisp green leaves. A potpourri of florals: rose, honeysuckle and jasmine create a nostalgic provocativeness in the heart which leads to the beautifully relaxed drydown of orange blossoms and creamy solar notes.
Grab a bottle or two for yourself or gift it to one of your girlfriends this Christmas!
