Vacay In A Bottle: United Colors of Benetton Body Mist

Just a thought: if vacation trips were housed and sold in bottles, would you hoard on ‘em? I would, in a blazing heartbeat. I was looking for a light yet mellow scent when Benetton Fragrances sent me two purple bottles that were more than body mists — they’re instant tickets to Thailand and Morocco!

Benetton Nero x Benetton Bianco

Do you remember these classic late 90s scents?

While I received these his and hers present from Brigitte two years ago, this duo’s also 2 of my first EDTs. Benetton’s released a couple more scents to love years after but for some reason, I’m always drawn to Cold and Hot. Or Hot and Cold.

The iconic Benetton wool stitch logo is stenciled on the clear glass as if in spray paint – a defiant gesture inspired by street art that also evokes the act of spraying fragrance on the skin. Next, on the boxes – white with black graphics for Bianco, black with white graphics for Nero – where each color is accompanied by a list of its sensations and associations: moon, snow, feather, cotton, purity for Bianco; ink, night, eclipse, magic, gothic for Nero.
