What I love about Perfume Dessert

Two quarters had passed, and I am beyond grateful for all the blessings lined up before me. ☺️ Rainy season has finally dominated the lovely demanding months and the skies are already gloomy but I still can’t get enough of summer. 🍂

Perfume Dessert Body Mists by Carla Jane Muega of Iloilo City, Philippines

Two weeks ago, while I was busy collecting my scattered ideas, I received a message full of “pops! tings! swoosh!” from a friend so full of excitement! I was fascinated of her and right then felt so happy and thankful for everything. She has brand new thoughts and awesome plans which I adored. She has been starting a perfume business, and I definitely loved it! 🥰

Been wearing one of my personal favorite pick SAKURA from her scents collections. Sakura’s floral scent is intense and gives off a bittersweet aroma. It smells so tender and extraordinarily vivid. It reminds me of the idea of the beautiful and alluring spring in Japan. Who else can’t fall in love? Oh ,Perfume Dessert!

Perfume Dessert, is an arising brand carrying quality perfume products in a cheaper price made from UK. Thank you Perfume Dessert for the kind gestures. 💕 I love it. 


What I love about Perfume Dessert?

1. Many options to choose from. There are so many scent options to choose from. All the scents are unique and never boring.

2. It is affordable. The market price is fair for the class it will give you. It is reasonable enough and worth a try, fair enough for such beauty.

The packaging of Perfume Dessert Body Mists are so colorful and ready-made as gifts.

A closer look for this lovely colections.

3. Handy. It is convenient to carry. As a woman, my bag is always heavy. And of course, I would prefer to carry a classy and super handy 30mL bottle packaging of Perfume Dessert body mist in my bag.

4. It is long-lasting. It lasts longer than other ordinary body mists. It is an oil-based UK manufactured collection that may last 4-6 hours when worn.

5. Fragrant. The scents are nice and interesting. Well, your choice will still depend on your character. All these scents are unique and sweet.   

And as I said, Sakura is my personal favorite. There are other interesting scents you can try aside from Sakura. Please see list below:

• Strawberry Shortcake
• Gumdrops
• Fruit Tart
• Cake Pops
• French Macaroon
• Orange Sherbet Mimosa
• Apple Pomegranate Salad

6. Ideal Gift. The packaging is nice and an ideal gift for your loved-ones!
