BENCH/DIMENSIONE X DAPHNE OSENA

"I believe that home fragrances are just as important as personal scents. It is the final touch in creating a well-dressed home" - Daphne Osena-Paez

True enough to those words, Daphne - in collaboration with Bench, recently launched a line of home fragrance in three different scents created to suit different moods. I was able to smell all three and I can't wait to share my nose's experience with you guys! You wanna find out more? Just keep on reading… And oh, there are also cute (and whimsical!) chairs here!

"Fragrance can define the purpose of a room. It sets the mood: relaxing, refreshing, comfortable, welcoming. It's the final touch. The best accessory for a well-dressed home."

"When I was creating this with the Bench team, I was imagining actual rooms. I took inspiration from food, travel and colors."
The Daphne Home Scents for Bench line:
Acres of Lavender, which aids in sleep, is woodsy, soothing and relaxing.
Homemade Lemon Tart is reminiscent of freshly-baked pie, a universal scent designed to appeal to all ages and lifestyles.
Mint Jasmine Infusion is a mix of floral and mint, inspired by an outdoor kitchen in Tuscany.
I got the Homemade Lemon Tart and it has found its way not in my room but in my car! I want my car to smell like home and so far it has helped me battle the stress of bad traffic!

Now let's get to the 'whimsical' part of this post, The Daphne chairs!

Adding furniture designer to her ever-growing list of achievements, Daphne debuts her signature furniture piece at Dimensione. Fashioned from farmed mahogany wood, the Daphne chair is playful and a bit feminine but rooted in practicality. Though it may look delicate, the chairs are designed to last!
See? Daphne's standing on the chairs but it still looked like it can hold a dozen more of her. Very sturdy by the looks of it.
Daphne was nostalgic in saying that she wanted something reminiscent of the prettiness of childhood in her chair collection. She also pointed out that the beauty of the Daphne chair is that it works in any kind of environment.

"I've seen it best in ultra-modern, minimalist home. It stood out like a sculpture. I've seen it in a small coffee shop used as regular chairs." - Daphne

That's how versatile the chairs are...

The Daphne Home Scents retails at Php348 each and comes with two sets of diffuser sticks and is available at Dimensione stores and selected Bench stores nationwide. The Daphne chairs are exclusively available at Dimensione.
