Love, M: Personalized Fragrances for The Beauty Junkee by Zen Zest Asia

Remember Zen Zest's Diva Off Challenge, wherein I won the grand prize? Here's the second part of my prize and it just came in the mail last week--50 bottles of personalized fragrances made for me by Zen Zest. (Experiencing that #LikeADonya feeling right about now) I was anxiously anticipating this loot because this is the first time that a well- known brand is going to customize scents for me. And it's worth the wait!

Click READ MORE and check out Love, M fragrances!

During the initial planning stage of these fragrances, Michelle Fontelera had thoroughly asked me about the particular scents I prefer, plus the tone of the labels and packaging. I don't know anything about perfume customization so I just gave her an idea of the scents I like, and asked her to pattern the labels after French- inspired interiors. I didn't meddle too much with the production, particularly the actual perfume- making, because I know it's Michelle's expertise so I left everything in her hands. I'm happy to know she has delivered!

Why is it called Love, M? Because I had intended to give away these fragrances to the people I've worked with and of course, people I love. It doesn't have too much words on it because I want the fragrance to speak for itself, (and it did!) and it's a great way to save Mother Earth as well by minimizing the use of gift cards! :)

How's the scent, you ask? Love, M White Moss and Mimosa (beige and blue) is a unisex type of fragrance, and it's inspired by the fresh, clean scent of Acca Kappa Muschio Bianco, while Love, M Orange Honeysuckle and Mask (black and pink) is inspired by the sheer simplicity and purity of Jo Malone's fragrances. I am totally loving this duo that I was even tempted to keep everything to myself. LOL! I'm even thinking of retailing this as my own perfume line hahaha! :D


When you want to feel Like A Donya, personalizing stuff is the way to go. I think it is also a great, great gift item, and a usable giveaway in special occasions such as weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, and the likes.

This April, one lucky commenter will take home these two The Beauty Junkee exclusive fragrances made by Zen Zest. Until then, and have an awesome Monday, everyone! :)
