New from Benetton Hot Gold & Cold Silver + Colori Line Nero and Bianco

New scents from United Colors of Benetton

    The only perfumes I know before from Benetton are Hot & Cold. I remember the unique-shaped red/blue cap that everytime I see one, I get the itch to rotate the screwy looking thingy even if it doesn’t work that way, lol.

From a young me having a blurry memory of my cousin getting one for a gift and listening to older schoolmates talk among themselves that they prefer the blue (for guys) one over the red, to now- upon telling people I’m going to a fragrance event by Benetton, they’ll say : “hot & cold ba yan?”; Hot & Cold are still known and popular today.  And after almost 15 years of the iconic status of hot and cold, new participants to the cult line are launched: The modern and sophisticated Hot Gold and Cold Silver.  So now, you can’t just say Hot & Cold anymore, it’s going to be “Hot Red or Hot Gold” and “Cold Blue or Cold Silver”.  Will be confusing, I tell yah!

Hot Gold for women
Its Latin name aurum – meaning shining dawn – gives a hint of the multiple evocations of gold. Gold is light and love, hope and happiness. Hot Gold for women captures these associations in a light and elegant fruity floral fragrance which opens with a bright bergamot note, rounded out by touches of golden apple and yellow peach. The delicate heart blends star fruit and radiant rose with soft hints of mimosa, developing into a sensual dry-down of sandalwood, solar musks and golden amber.
 Cold Silver for men
 Sleek and sophisticated, silver is associated with design, technology and ultra-modernity. Cold Silver for men translates this cool, clean elegance into a virile fougere fragrance that immediately asserts its presence with dynamic top notes of yuzu, coriander and ginger. In the heart, aromatic silver sage is spiced with a pinch of cardamom seeds. The woody dry-down blends silver moss, mineral amber and vibrant musks, creating a strong, unmistakably masculine signature.

 I stand corrected as Benetton has a lot of fragrance lines (a lot lot). United Colors of Benetton also launched new scents for the Colori Line, Benetton Black(Bianco) and Benetton White(Nero). For additional knowledge, Colori Line started with four colors: Red(Rosso), Yellow(Giallo), Green(Verde) and Blue(Blu) which are inspired by the colorful world of Benetton. This line is targeted for the young-ish crowd (15-25yrs old) as it’s like the fun, fresh and trendy scents to use for different moods. As I’ve said I only know Hot & Cold before as the fragrances of Benetton and this to me is new but it seems I’m for this line as it’s more me *ahem*. Lol.

Woman: sparkling and feminine Just as white blends all the colors in the spectrum into pure perfection, so Benetton Bianco Woman fuses fruity and floral fragrance essences into a seductively sparkling composition. In the top note, luscious lychee pulp is complemented by bamboo sap and white mulberry, evolving into a feminine heart of white rose, grape flower and dewy jasmine. The dry-down is soft and sweet, infused with notes of cocooning cotton musk, vanilla and white patchouli. 

Man: vibrant and virile Cool and clean, fresh and forthright, Benetton Nero Man is a citrus woody scent that debuts with sparkling notes of blood tangerine, peppermint and grapefruit zest. The coolness lingers through a spicy heart of mace, juniper berries and lemon tree wood, lending depth to the fragrance, then evolves towards a darkly vibrant dry-down of Indonesian patchouli, ebony wood and black musks.

Eau de Toilette 100ml – PHP 1,350.00  | 30ml – PHP 850.00
And the good thing about the fragrances ..they're inexpensive. Price range for Colori line : 850php (around $18) for 30ml and 1,350php (around $29) for 100ml.    Price for Hot & Cold : 1375php (around $30) for 100ml.
