Iya and Primo Arellano: Bambini Baby Cologne’s Newest Ambassadors


2018 is a time of new beginnings and the same goes for Bambini Baby Cologne! This well-loved brand showed off its fresh new look at the Bambini Baby Cologne Family Bootcamp last March 10 at the Glorietta 3 Activity Center. The highlight of the day was the big announcement of celebrity mom Iya Villania-Arellano and Baby Primo as Bambini’s newest ambassadors.

The Bambini Baby Cologne Family Bootcamp featured an array of fun activities that kept kids busy and moms entertained. Upon entering, we were given a camp passport that you can have stamped after completing each activity. The Bootcamp was filled with little surprises that brought smiles to everyone’s face. Kids enjoyed a bouncy castle, a larger-than-life coloring book, a ball pit, and giant puzzle blocks. And if you complete all the activities, you can claim a souvenir tote bag personalized with Bambini’s cute characters.

As the Family Bootcamp was full of fun surprises, so were Bambini’s five scents. It was hard to choose which scent we’d cast our vote on because all of them smelled fresh and amazing! Here are the new scents:


Morning Tickles that smelled floral and sweet. Starry Lullaby that had a calm, relaxed vibe. Ocean Kisses that reminds me of a clear sunny and windy day. Cotton Cuddles with a cotton fresh scent. And the citrusy and fun Sunny Playtime! 

The new and improved Bambini Baby Cologne also had colorful and fun designs that featured cute mom and baby animals. All in all, the colognes are perfect for kids, and no doubt adored by adults.

In just a little while, Iya Villania-Arellano arrived with Baby Primo. Iya simply glowed while announcing that baby #2 is on the way.  She also shared the best moments of being a first time mom, “These are the small accomplishments. Yesterday, we went to the mall and he got busy playing. So before we left I asked him to pack away and he did! It’s such a small thing pero mapapaiyak ka na the small things you teach him at home ay ginagawa niya. I like to feel I take care of him and I’m a part of that.”

Iya also gave her advice to moms . “A lot of people might look at me and think Ms. Gym ako. But it’s really because it makes me feel good. It puts me in a good mood when I’m at home with Primo. It gives me energy, patience, strength, and endurance. I make it a point to workout and make it a point to be there for Primo. There are values I want to be the one to teach him. And I want to be there to witness milestones. If something is important to you, you’ll find a way to make it happen.”

Because Iya is such a hands-on mom, she gets to experience all the fun, silly, and simple moments with Primo. In the same way, Bambini focuses on the playful bond that kids share with their parents, making these random moments more enjoyable.  That makes Iya and Bambini a perfect combination!

Iya loves the all the scents of Bambini Baby Cologne. But she does admit to a favorite. Iya likes Sunny Playtime with its nice, mild, and yummy scent that makes Primo even more nakakagigil! But she shares that Primo likes Starry Lullaby. They actually have to hide the bottle at home because he’s learned how to open it. And he likes looking at the mom and baby animal designs and peeling off the stickers.

While Iya was on stage, Primo was busy checking out all the activities of the Bambini Family Bootcamp. It seemed that just like Bambini, Primo’s all about having fun and adventure! Iya also shared how she’s worked with Cosmetique Asia before through Silka Papaya soap, and how happy she is that the company continues to be part of her growing family.

Bambini hopes to be a part of our family’s small moments and big adventures too! Bambini Baby Colognes are available in three sizes – 25ml, 50ml, and 125ml—and packaged in an easy-to-go grip curvy bottle. Their five new scents are so good that they bring little surprises to anyone who smells them for the first time!
