FRESH OFF THE OVEN
Simoy ng Haraya’s Panaderia spray
Since its launch, Simoy has produced unique Filipino scents, such as the Prutas and Minatamis sprays, but Panaderia has been the most interesting so far. “I started with body scents associated with emotions but I wanted the home scents to be different. An officemate requested a bread scent and I decided to release it,” says creator Lala de Leon. Customers were impressed with the resemblance of the scent to fresh pandesal, which de Leon achieved by combining gourmand notes of sugar, vanilla, chocolate, and nuts.
