Meet the New "Michael"

     Remember that low-cost baby cologne that I shamelessly promoted 2 years ago? Well, I had some pretty agonizing months recently because I can’t seem to find them anymore. I horridly thought it died in oblivion. I thought, alas, why didn’t I buy heaps while it was still sprouting like unwanted mushrooms in that poor little corner of the grocery store? Yeah, some really good things had to end soon. So much for regrets.

This was how it looked like

     But, little did I know that this fragrance, once unassumingly dressed in blue plastic bottle, has to get pimped too. Earlier today while shopping for toiletries, just to pay homage to “Michael”, I passed by that little corner in the grocery where my once beloved colognes sat. That was when I bumped into the little guy, but now, in a new outfit <wink>. He now comes in a cuter packaging of 50ml transparent plastic bottle with a blue cover. The transformation is not much. It could pass for a tiny baby oil.  But the very idea that the manufacturer, GV Cosmetics, made an update must have a very good reason for doing so. A sales growth, perhaps?


     Why do I post about this?  Well, I rarely recommend products but when I do, it’s because I truly appreciate them. Michael Cologne is one of them because, as I have said before, some of the best things come in “cheap” packages. It is still the same old powdery-citrusy-musky-sweet scent that is distinctly Michael. This new one costs only Php 27.50, guys. Trust me, this is one of the few stuffs that are worth more than they appear to be.


  1. where can i buy them? thanks....

    1. Sorry for the very, very late reply, my friend. You may check them at your suki pharmacies or if you happen to live near where some Gaisano malls are located, I am pretty these establishments have them on their grocery shops. :)
      I usually buy mine in Gaisano Grand mall that's near my place.

  2. It was very useful for me. Keep sharing such ideas in the future as well. This was actually what I was looking for, and I am glad to came here! Thanks for sharing the such information with us.
