Daphne Home Scents for Bench



Pinch me. Is this really happening?

Yesterday, Bench launched their first home scent – and they chose to work with me. I still can’t believe this all happened. We know that Bench has pioneered and captured the celebrity fragrance market. It is a natural progression that they’d move into the home sector – being that they are the country’s top fashion lifestyle brand. And when they approached me and wanted to develop the home scent with me, I was internally doing somersaults. This is the BIG thing I’d been keeping secret all these months.
Lots of stories to tell about the launch and the scents. I’m waiting for the official photos and videos so I can share them with you. For now, Instagram (@DaphneOP) is it. Hope you don’t mind.


Can't believe it's really here. Daphne Home Scents for Bench. Also in Dimensione. @benchtm
The Daphne Home Scents for Bench come in three variants – Acres of Lavender, Homemade Lemon Tart and Mint Jasmine Infusion. I love all three. I hope you get to try them. Very, very affordable. They’re sold at P348 per bottle (introductory price!).


#Daphne chairs, now in Dimensione.
The Daphne Furniture also has a new home now. I’ve moved the Daphne chairs to Dimensione High Street, Eastwood, Rockwell and Greenbelt 5. Lots of yummy colours now. And yes, the Home Scents are developed with French perfume experts.

The whole Bench family came to the launch. They planned and styled the event in the loveliest way. All our guests were in awe, as much as I was. It was hosted by Raymond Gutierrez! I was star struck! Hearing him introduce me in such a nice way was just out of this world extraordinary! This mother and daughter team is Kai Lim’s, wife of Bench VP for Business Development Bryan Lim.


Amazed! @benchtm logo and #Daphne logo together!
Can I say that my heart skips a beat everytime I see the BENCH logo and DAPHNE logo side by side? How this happened, I don’t really know. I was honestly just wishing and willing it in my mind. And one day, I heard from Mr. Ben Chan’s people. Thank you, universe. Thank you, God!


You know it's not a regular day when you wake up to a tweet from @BCBench @benchtm. Still in awe.
This morning, a barrage of tweets from guests who have set up the Daphne Home Scents for Bench. And this most unforgettable tweet from Mr. Ben Chan. (He’s out of the country on an important trip and said that he brought some bottles of the home scent as gifts for his friends. He was very hands on with every single detail of the launch. Thank you, Mr. Chan.)


More photos and stories coming up. Seriously. This blog will be on a Daphne Home Scent and Bench high for a while….

    Mint Jasmine sure sounds very enticing. I could use one in my room.

    Congratulations in this endeavor. Stay fab.

    Oh my God! Oh my God! I am heading to Bench right now! I am constantly looking for home air fresheners, room scents, fragrance oils etc because my husband doesn’t seem to like any that I choose.  I will take hubby with me when we go to Bench and let him pick out the one he likes! (I am sure that he will like one if not all because he likes Bench fragrances and a fan of you too!  hihihihi!) I am so happy that it’s affordable too! Yeheeeey!
