With different intervals for different press mediums I, along with the metro's top female beauty and fashion bloggers, were the last group to "chat" with Idesa Parfum's International Division Heads Carlos and Stella. Of course being bloggers, we didn't just went there to get to the specifics of the brand. I personally had a historical
moment struggle by using the word Spaniards instead of Spanish. The infamous "Manila traffic" and balut were brought up as well and before you roll your eyes dear readers, let me just say that WE just can't help it. Sorry.
But if we did not brought those things up, we wouldn't have discovered this eccentric chef who makes green goo taste like omelette (and that it takes 4 to 5 years for a table reservation in his restaurant), and how our traffic is not an asset (which we all know kids) and that we need to do something about it. Don't worry Carlos, our government is
struggling fixing this issue up and they are doing a great job at it. Right MMDA?
On a lighter (and fresher!) note, don't you just love this set that you're looking at? Well aside from geographical, historical, and personal stuff, we also talked about Rose Glacée! The latest fragrance from the Armand Basi line.
A little something about the brand…
Since the debut of its first collection in 1986, the Armand Basi brand has embedded its style and fashion offerings within a framework of intellectual discourse based on social commentary. The brand's original taste for avantgarde artistic references has evolved side-by-side a dynamic sense of aesthetics, a natural consequence of the desire to be on the cutting edge.
|Here's Stella sharing the Rose Glacée story with us...|
|The packaging represents the fragrance's duality. On one hand, a feminine and delicate design in pink hues with the Rose as the main element; and on the other hand, a geometric paper rose which is modern with unconventional touch.|

Now let's talk about the real star of the event… the Armand Basi Rose Glacée!
|Organic and geometric, the rose is the heart and inspiration of this new fragrance by Armand Basi.|
Now let's get technical...
Armand Basi Rose Glacée's rose avoids clichés. It is fresh, young and modern, with a chic and sensual quality added by its naming in French.
