It has been almost a week since the DAPHNE Home Scents for Bench™ were launched. I haven’t written about the event yet because almost immediately, real life took over. I was allowed to be in cloud nine for a day, then everything fell into place like nothing happened. My kids started school. I’ve been busy establishing a morning routine with them. And I’ve focused on dropping them off and picking each one up every single day. This is the life that I want.
Just to shake things up a bit, Patrick brought the two older kids to Bench and Dimensione over the holiday. They were giddy when they saw the display of DAPHNE bottles along side chinos and T-shirts at Bench. Lily insisted to buy a bottle. I lined up and paid for it. The sales associate was speechless. It was a very cute moment.
I’ve been getting a lot of tweets and Instagram links from those who’ve bought and tried the scents. So far, all very good reviews. There are three scents – Acres of Lavender, Homemade Lemon Tart and Mint Jasmine Infusion. I’m really so proud of how they all came out. The Bench teams who developed the product and worked on the launch are so awesome.
Here’s the video that was shown at the launch. It tells the story of how the scents were created, and how the collaboration came about. The video was shot and produced by creative duo Jujiin Samonte and Paulo Castro.
More photos and highlights of the launch, coming soon. Sorry for the hangover. I don’t think I’ll ever get over this! Haha. Have you tried the scents yet?
