Welcoming the ‘royal’ babies
OH YES, IT'S JOHNNY! - Johnny Litton (The Philippine Star) - December 31, 2017 - 12:00am

The “Lord of Scents” Joel Cruz recently hosted a royalty-themed celebration following the christening of his newest set of twins, Charles and Charlotte.

Known for giving his children only the best, the Aficionado Perfumes and Personal Care president and CEO handpicked the twins’ godfathers and godmothers — all of whom are hugely successful in their fields and will surely be positive influences in the children’s lives.

The christening was held at San Vicente de Paul Parish in Ermita, Manila, followed by an elegant reception in Manila Hotel’s Tent City. The who’s who from the business, government, social and even showbiz circles were seen gracing the festivities.

The christening and reception were a rousing success and truly became delightful memories that Charles and Charlotte will treasure for the rest of their lives.

Congratulations on becoming a father once again, dear Joel!
