Fragrance: Gyuma – The Philippine’s Love Potion

Have you seen the latest fragrance of Attraction in town? Make way and smell the newest scents from Gyuma Manila.

Gyuma Fragrance for Women

Gyuma Fragrance for Men

I was fortunate enough to be the “face” of Gyuma! Hahaha! It was just accidentally that my friend told me about the photoshoot. As a sucker of beautiful portraits and a frustrated model, I agreed.

It was a rainy afternoon when I arrived the location. The team was already there and we started right away once the person in charge from the company has arrived.

Makeup Artist: Steffi Verzola

The makeup was done by Steffi Verzola, the sister of a former colleague. A talented young girl who transformed everyone from a morning look to a more sophisticated look.

Andi Eigenmann grabbed from fashionmediaph.blogspot.com

As you can see, the published image is my “sophisticated look”. It was inspired by Andi Eigenmann‘s look in Marc Nicdao’s magazine.

The whole concept was amazing and I was really excited to be part of this project. There were improvisions made like my dress. It was just a white blouse from Plains & Prints and wrapped a black cloth to make it a dress. Pretty awesome, right?

Official Prints

After that day, I didn’t followed up. I just received an SMS that the fragrance was already launched sometime in December 2012. I never thought that it would end up to look like this:

Gyuma Outlet at SM North Edsa

Amazing right?! Hahaha! I would never have known about this if not for my team mate. One Monday morning, he greeted me with a confused question: “Kath, nag-model ka ba ng pabango? ‘G’ nag-sstart yung brand tapos naka-black & white ka?“. I was shocked and guilty at the same time. I asked him where he saw it and said it was it SM North Edsa! I hurriedly googled ‘Gyuma + SM North’ and found their Facebook account.

I was laughing by myself with total amusement to see myself on print. Hahahaha! Damn, I can crash out one of the things on my bucket list as I was able to be seen on “print ad”. It might not be as big time as others but still it’s print! Hahahaha!

Gyuma Fragrances are proudly local, potent and magical designed to increase the wearer’s attractiveness and define one’s personality. Their fragrances are inspired by “gayuma”, a magical potion used in Filipino folk belief for invoking love and attraction.

They have unique scent name especially made for Filipinos. A bit funny but really catchy at the same time. They used Tagalog names to better suit our culture.

Their brochure that can be found on their stalls has all the available scents at the moment. The information about the perfume can also be found there. All the fragrances have branded counterparts that is also included in their brochure.

Token of Appreciation: Gyuma – Leon & Gyuma – Bulaklak

I got this as a token of appreciation from my friend. One for me and one for my boyfriend, Andrew. I got Bulaklak scent and he got Leon. Another favorite is “Taray” that is an alternative for Lacoste Touch of Pink branded perfume.
