Benetton is a brand that has been around for as long as I can remember. It was practically the rage when I was in high school. We had Benetton shirts and bags among other things. I will always remember the United Colors of Benetton multiracial ads wherein a mix of Asian, caucasian, and African-American models would grace magazine pages and posters.
- Benetton Hot Gold is the scent for women. I loved its light, fresh, and fruity notes from the combination of bergamot, golden apple, and yellow peach.
- Benetton Cold Silver is the scent for men. It’s an unmistakably manly fragrance with top notes from yuzu, coriander, and ginger. I actually won one bottle of this from the on-the-spot Twitter contest held at the event… I wish I had gotten Hot Gold instead though, haha!
- Benetton Bianco is characterized by notes from lychees pulp, grape flower, cotton musk, vanilla, and white patchouli among many others.
- Benetton Nero is characterized by notes from peppermint, grapefruit zest, lemontree wood, Indonesian patchouli, and black musks among many others.
I actually liked Nero better than Bianco as Nero’s fruity notes reminded me of Hot Gold somehow. Nero smells light, clean, and crisp which is how I like my fragrances.
Benetton Bianco and Nero are available in 30ml and 100ml sizes for P850 and P1,350 respectively at Fresh Fragrance Bars and leading department stores nationwide.
