I Have Discovered EDSA Shangri-la Hotel's Signature Scent!

Though my age is not yet qualified to be a Tito of Manila, I am already considering myself one since signs are evidently showing. Uh-oh! :) One manifestation I have noticed is instead of going out with friends, I prefer staying in my room, watching Netflix or Youtube videos, drinking a cup of my favorite milk tea. So Tito! HAHAHAHA.

Since 75% of my time is spent inside my room (if I don't have work or event for blog), I make sure that it would LOOK and SMELL like a hotel room. HAHA. By the way, this is not yet a room tour. We'll have a separate post for that. :) 

Before the popularity of the Oilbularyos, fragrance oils have already a special place in my heart. :) I remember that during 2014, there were no cheap oils available. I have to spend thousands of Pesos and travel in Manila to visit few stores offering it. :) Four years after, you could see oils used for humidifier, air purifier, diffuser, touch lamp oil warmer, candle oil burner, ANYWHERE. Some are also using oils such as roll-on oils for preventing and curing illnesses! For 70 pesos, you could now have a 15 ml bottle of fragrance oil! How time flies and things change! :) 


I thought I would be contented with these, but not. Every time I visit hotels, there are scents I know not coming from a humidifier or purifier. I could compare the scent to a perfume, but not that strong.

Through time, I discover that these hotels are using SPRAYS. So why are they using sprays over oils like most of our homes have? First, it is cost efficient. If they have 100 rooms, they would be purchasing 100 units of humidifiers that would consume electricity, have to clean the units and refill water and oil after 12 hours. Imagine how stressful that would be to maintenance personnel? Second, sprays could immediately be smelled while oils would take few minutes before the particles would be released in air. Lastly, it would be easier for them to overwhelm their customers. I remember the time when we were about to check out at Sofitel. The hallway smelled so good. Though it always was during our stay. I remember seeing a room attendant walking around. During that time, I had no idea. But come to think of it, he "might" have sprayed their signature scent because the hotel knew that customers would be checking out. They have to leave best impressions. :) Good marketing strategy, isn't it? :)

Since room is life (LOL), I tried finding home or room sprays. :) These are few of my favorites, with essential oils. :)

Why do I have different scents? My scent of the day depends on my mood. HAHA. Though, most of the time, I have good sleep with Aromaex Coffee beans scent. :) I pair it with vanilla candle in my Touch-lamp oil warmer. :) So relaxing! It transports me to a coffee shop. Perfect while writing a blog entry, script for shoot or reading books. :)

Mr. Pogi says:

I so love it! :) Every time I do workout, I can't wait to see sweat coming out my glands, and it usually takes time. This is the first time, I am conveniently laying down while perspiring A LOT. I could compare the amount of sweat I had to my usual Insanity workout routine. Unlike other spas, I didn't feel the heat much which is good. I was able to relax and felt that this soothe my tense muscles. :)

Workout Replacement?

Researchers say that it is best if you would still do cardio or workout routine since this keeps your heart healthy, raises metabolic rate and builds endurance. But according to studies, heat therapy or jacuzzi could be a good addition! :)

Water Reminder App: HIGHLY RECOMMENDED? :)

How are you all? Today I will be sharing my newest mobile app discovery that is perfect for people who don't usually drink or forget to drink 8 glasses of water everyday. . . . .WATER REMINDER! :)

People say, "An apple a day keeps the doctor away" but don't say the most important thing, "Drink Water Regularly". Most of us miss this healthy habit.  I definitely love water. I don't have issues with it. But due to work and busy schedule, I normally tend to forget to drink water. That's why last year,  I developed Urinary Tract Infection (U.T.I.). Gladly, I was able to get rid of it and now conscious of my water intake.

Water Reminder is one of the best apps to remind you every time your body needs water.

Available on IOS :)

The app promises to give these results after using this app for a couple of weeks:

1. Increase Energy and Relieves Fatigue
2. Promotes Weight Loss
3. Flushes out Toxins
4. Improves Skin Complexion
5. Maintains Regularity
6. Boosts Immune System
7. Natural Headache Remedy
8. Prevents Cramps and Sprains
9. Puts You in a Good Mood
10. Save Money

Water Reminder is user-friendly. Once it is installed, you just have to fill-out your profile information (Name, Gender, Height, Weight, Workout) and it will automatically calculate the number of glasses you need in a day.
