Mally Roncal of MALLY BEAUTY just came out with her first Fragrance Eau de Parfum! And you probably have not smelled one like this before. It pays tribute to her Filipino roots by using the country’s national flower, the Sampaguita, as its heart. So what does this blossom smell like? It’s a tropical flower and belongs to the jasmine family. It’s funny that the overall scent is described in the press release as an “energetic blend …” and I really think they nailed it with those few words as it is quite uplifting. More words I would use to describe it is heady, happy, stimulating and … gosh darn sexy!
Other notes include citrus, freesia, mandarin, red currant and some base notes of peach, coconut, sandalwood and musk. So if these are some of the notes found in some of your favorite fragrances then you should check this one out.
The bottle is pretty basic looking aside from some cute charms hanging off the neck - two hearts and a gold metal “m.” This would have scored bigger points if the hearts were Swarovski and not plastic! I think Mally has a winner on her hands with this one. $65/1.7oz @ qvc.com.
