We first caught wind of this hair dryer that emits a fragrance on RED (a.k.a. China’s Instagram). Weird or wonderful, we can’t decide – but netizens are raving about its refreshing campanula, or bellflower, scent that easily complements the hair dryer’s soothing ombre yellow and blue hues.
A beauty blogger says the fragrance has hints of elegant rose and lily of the valley.
This compact hair dryer is the Philips Small Fragrance Hairdryer BHD399, a new product that was released in China late last year.
Besides its beautiful pastel colours and fragrance-emitting capabilities, the hair dryer also uses mineral and negative ions to protect hair from harmful ultraviolet rays. Plus, it’s equipped with 1800-watt power that quickly dries hair, as well as a consistent temperature that doesn’t damage your strands.
It’s unfortunate that this one-of-a-kind Philips Small Fragrance Hairdryer isn’t available in Singapore. Fret not, because we’ve gathered a list of great hair dryers and heat protectant products that you can get your hands on in Singapore!
Great hair dryers that come in pretty colours

It’s only fair to start with a Philips brand hair dryer, so we’re introducing you to the Philips 3000 Series ThermoProtect Hair Dryer! Its black matte body elegantly complements the pastel pink nozzle.
Like the Philips Small Fragrance Hair Dryer, this hairdryer also uses a uniquely-designed ThermoProtect attachment that mixes cool and warm air to bring the temperature lower while still effectively drying your hair. Plus, it has six heat and speed settings so that you can find a combination that best works for your hair.

Unlike most hair dryers, the Philips Prestige Hair Dryer has a cute bauble head and it’s white with metallic pink embellishments that make it look super sweet and elegant.
This beautiful hairdryer doesn’t just look the part, but it also uses a superior SenseIQ technology that continuously measures the temperature of your hair as you dry and adjusts the heat accordingly so that your hair retains its natural moisture.
People who have used this product say that it’s also not too noisy, light, and compact, so you can pack it in your luggage when you’re on the go.
