Have Fragrant Clothes With Downy Timeless Softener | Clozette

Scents often have a magical way of evoking the inner spirit in me. Waking up each morning feeling a burst of lingering freshness of elegance puts a spring in my step each day.  It's been a week since we've tried experimenting this new fragrance on practically any laundry in our house, including Bebe girl's apparels and I must say Hubb & I are officially hooked to its burst of freshness and lingering fragrance already.

Collaborating with Clozette team was once again a ball of fun! It was the Hubb's first attempt in selecting an outfit for me, with me completely in the dark. So naturally, I was dying to see what my man would pick for his first try of selecting my OOTD. Much to his relief, he had the expert help of image consultant Kyla Tan, to help ease his burden. I'm pretty confident he had much fun with the help of the expert and the Clozette team.





The surprise gift finally arrived! I peek a glimpse of lace and found myself grinning like a dork. It helps that the Hubb helps out with the laundry on days I’m away from home. When seeking his opinion for my apparels on our dates out, he will often lament 'Isn't this similar to what I just washed and hung up in the laundry area last night?' *guilty as charged*


I don't know if you and I have the same issue--but we, ladies can own a few similar outfits with the same style that we so fancy, but yet still can find something different in every one of them! There's still an element of difference in them you know? So, the pick of sheer white lace (I love lace) on ivory is something I don't own, yet familiar..





Date out with the OOTD chosen by the man. Here's my oh-oh-tee-dee of the day!




Having fun styling the peplum lace number which the Hubb has selected. He opted for a chic pair of culottes - as he noticed of late, it's in trend. This man sure knows his stuff.





I have always been in love with scents. The smell of romantically scented rooms, even the bathrooms. With the burst of fresh smelling laundry, it never fails to evoke a spiral of everything-is-in-order senses in me. Though not a huge fan of housework, with the new addition to our Downy timeless scent and also to our previous blue downy collection, it helps me look forward to each new batch of fresh laundry like receiving a newly scented batch of gift all over again. We're glad that we can smell this on our Furkid too. We are pretty sure Bebe girl will love that even her dresses smells freshly scented with every wash.

My husband Roy and I have always been sporty - we engage in our own weekly workout regimes and sometimes, get involved in friendly netball games or cycle and jog outdoors together. Ever since we moved in together, one of the commonly discussed topic surrounding household matters is on how to make our workout clothes smell good even post-workout. 




Clearly, downing ourselves in perfume sprays after an intense workout is not a good solution because the mix of perfume scent and sweat just isn't right. Also, my husband is not a fan of carrying bottled fragrances with him to sporting events. This discussion came up recently when we were doing grocery shopping with another couple friend. They introduced us to the Downy Timeless Softener - one of the fabric softener from the Downy Parfum Collection with a mild elegant fragrance - which they claim that the fragrance lasts long after laundry and suggested for us to give it a try. One thing I noticed about Downy Timeless from the other softeners from the same range was the white coloured liquid, which is great because it puts me to ease with washing delicate white clothing. 




That very same weekend that we bought our first bottle of Downy Timeless, Roy attended a workshop by Style Maker’s image consultant, Kyla Tan on style advice and choosing the right outfit for his date. Straight after the workshop, Roy decided to put his newly acquired styling knowledge to practice and got me a surprise outfit.




I received the outfit on the morning prior to our weekly date. And boy was I INDEED SURPRISED! When I opened the lid of the box, I immediately noticed a whiff of the Downy Timeless scent and got very impressed with Roy's attempt in prewashing the outfit with our newly purchased Downy Timeless Softener so that it smells good before gifting it to me! And the double surprise came in when I realised that he actually picked a white cropped top and printed wrap skirt for me. The assembled outfit has the effect of timeless elegance to it and it is totally the style I would embrace in my fashion choice, yet I have never matched cropped tops with formal skirts because cropped tops always give me the impression of being too casual and laid-back. 



Needless to say, I got very touched with Roy's thoughtful gift. Like his love for me, the Downy Timeless scent on my new outfit feels like an indulgence yet not imposing. The outfit's fabric against my skin was the softest I've ever experienced and up till now, I just wanted to make this Downy Timeless scent a special part of our memories whenever I do laundry at home!
