On June 8 at the Dimensione branch on Bonifacio High Street, Taguig, Daphne Oseña-Paez launched her first-ever home scents collection, in collaboration with fashion giant Bench.
“We know naman that Bench is in the forefront of creating celebrity scents, mga personal fragrances endorsed by celebrities.
“This is their first entry into the home market kaya ako iyong in-approach nila.”
Daphne is a known architecture and home design enthusiast.
She hosted a show called Urban Zone (formerly on ABS-CBN), which is primarily about interior design; and for the past two years, Daphne has been designing her own line of furniture and home accessories.
What made her agree to take on this offer from Ben Chan’s team?
“Ako kasi I believe that…you know how everybody wants to be well-dressed, everybody wants to be fashionable and stylish? It shouldn’t stop with the way you dress.
“It really should extend to the way you dress up your home, and ang pagiging stylish sa bahay ay hindi lang sa pagbili ng furniture at accessories.
“Kailangan it’s an overall sensual experience, so ang aroma very important iyan sa bahay.”
The Daphne Home Scents consists of three fragrances that are each perfect for every room in the home.
SCENTS FOR EVERY ROOM. Now, Daphne, who was there to personally supervise the production of the product—from picking out the scents to putting together the entire package, gives pointers on where to put specific scents to invigorate the home.
“Acres of Lavender, just as the name suggests, para siyang isang field na punung-puno ng lavender. It’s perfect for sleeping and relaxation, so it’s perfect for your bedroom.
“The homemade Lemon Tart, para siyang lemon na may cookie, so yummy iyong amoy niya. It’s perfect for the kitchen, for the bathroom or any place where you want to be stimulated and [feel] energetic.
“Mint Jasmine naman is mint siya, so alam naman natin ang scent ng mint, tapos hinaluan ng jasmine, which is floral. It’s very rejuvenating, so it’s perfect for your entry way, for your office or any part of the home in general.”
Asked which one is her favorite scent, Daphne says, “Well, I have three daughters—Sophia, Lily, and Stella—so that’s like asking me who’s my favorite daughter.
