Here at Cosmo.ph, we're big fragrance fanatics, whether it's a drugstore or a high-end buy. And as much as we would love to ~bathe~ in our favorite perfumes all day long, even our best picks can smell funky when mixed with amoy ulam or body odor.
If you've ever wondered how you can smell mabango without the need to spritz on your cologne for the 10th time today, there's actually a formula behind it (and no, it's not just showering regularly). Below, we've listed down our tips on how to score a long-lasting natural scent:
Maintain a healthy diet.
The age-old saying "You are what you eat" is very much true. What you digest plays a big part in your body's natural musk, so it pays to be more mindful of your food choices. Curry, garlic, and onion are all good for you, but when not devoured in moderation, an unpleasant scent may emanate from your pores (or breath) and stick to you.Continue reading below ↓
Another way to improve your natural scent is to cut down on your processed and junk foods intake. You can also try introducing more fruits and leafy greens in your diet.
Lather on a scented body wash.
The road to smelling fresh and being amoy bagong-ligo starts with the products you use in the shower. Use a scented body wash that will make you feel moisturized and refreshed.Continue reading below ↓Recommended VideosContinue reading below ↓

Body odor is natural, as we naturally produce them throughout the day. But, you can keep the B.O. at bay by swiping on your fave deodorant (it doesn't have to be an antiperspirant—sweating is good, after all). Don't be afraid to reapply throughout the day as needed, too. Just make sure to clean your pits first so the unpleasant and refreshing scents won't mix.
Use a fragrant body oil.
After hopping out of the shower, apply a scented body oil while your skin is still damp for easy absorption. Aside from leaving a scent that will linger on all day, it will also grant you a sexy sheen. ;)

Spritz on a hair mist.
Scents stick to your hair like no other—remember how your locks smell of smoke and Korean BBQ even *hours* after leaving the samgyup place? Luckily, there are mists that are specifically for making your tresses mabango! It's also an easy way to refresh your mane after a long day.

Try perfume-infused detergent products.
The products you use to wash your clothes make a huge difference in how you smell throughout the day. Try using a perfume-infused detergent which can help you retain a pleasant scent.
