Guess launches fragrance in PHL

GUESS is introducing its latest fragrance for women, the Guess Bella Vita, in the Philippines. “This fragrance is for the woman who fearlessly takes life into her own hands to create her unique story,” says the Drom perfumer team of Christine Hassan and Valerie Garnuch-Mentzel. “We created Guess Bella Vita as a tribute to all the women out there who love themselves and believe in the power of their femininity.” This fruity-floral fragrance opens with playful and vibrant notes of Italian lemon, cassis and black cherries, followed by a velvety white floral heart composed of jasmine, tuberose and vanilla orchid. The packaging design draws inspiration from the brand’s fashion heritage. The bottle and the carton bear the iconic GUESS peony medallion in the center. Transparent glass reveals the warm, rich color of the fragrance, while the opulent gold cap adds a precious detail. For the Philippine launch, Rustan Marketing Corp. put the spotlight on Filipina beauty queen, model and actress, Kylie Verzosa, as the woman who epitomizes the scent and traits of Guess Bella Vita. The perfume is available in two sizes: Eau de Parfum 50 ml (P3,450) and Eau de Parfum 100 ml (P4,250). It is available at Rustan’s Department Store Shangri-la Plaza and Makati; rustans.com, and zalora.com.ph.
