You know how "icky" you can feel when getting off a long flight? Dry skin, chapped lips, not smelling as...um... fresh as you'd like? Well, we can help you arrive at your destination fresh as a Breeze. Drum roll please....
We are proud to announce that Escents and Air Canada have joined forces to enhance and provide wellness to your in-flight experience. Passengers flying Executive First Class on Air Canada now receive a Breeze amenity kit including a refreshing towelette, body lotion and Mojito lip balm and an Escents web coupon for $25 off $50. (The kit also includes handy items like a dental kit, eye mask, socks, etc.)
For those of you where Executive First Class is out of reach (for now)...don't fret. Air Canada and Escents have lots of projects, contests and promos in the works - if you haven't already -
sign up for our newsletter to be first to know.
And, as it turns out this year marks Air Canada's 75th and Escents' 20th birthdays! I can't think of a better way to celebrate than to shower you with gifts.
