The Maldives could be yours for 7 days



If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would it be?

How about a gorgeous tropical island, with palm trees set against an azure ocean, just waiting to be explored?

For one lucky blogger and a companion, that dream could be a reality – this month, Tots100 is teaming up with travel specialists Kuoni to offer one lucky blogger the trip of a lifetime – a seven night luxury holiday in the Maldives. You could re-live your honeymoon, or perhaps take a honeymoon or a special anniversary trip if you didn’t get to have a honeymoon first time around. Or why not take a best friend and have a week long luxury break with plenty of me-time on the beach?

Kuoni has recently created a very special map of the world featuring scents from across the globe. It makes sense – our sense of smell is one of the most evocative senses, transporting us instantly back to a particular place or time. Perhaps the smell of fresh seafood always makes you think of a beach holiday, while the smell of pine reminds you of walks in the forest.


What scent do you imagine when you think of the Maldives?

Kuoni would like you to write a blog post explaining what you think the signature scent of the Maldives should be. Let us know why you think your scent captures the spirit of the Maldives and don’t forget to link to Kuoni’s Maldives page somewhere in your entry, so your readers can find out more about this glorious destination for themselves!

You open your sleepy eyes to paradise, look out to the Indian ocean awash with deep greens and blues,crystal clear,like no other ocean. you take a gentle walk around the Maldivian island, a freshly shelled coconut is offered to you,you smell at first a sweet creamy rich aroma,reminding you that you really are in the heavenly tropics. whilst you walk sipping you co coconut the the aroma of warm infused coconut oil drifts to you,you smell the delights of a honeymoon couple being pampered in the spa.As you carry on you head to the culinary delights,where the chefs prepare the most amazing aromatic curries,delicately infused with the wonderful taste of coconut. For me the Maldives islands signature scent is coconut,it is indeed the national tree of the republic of the Maldives,termed “Dhivehi Ruh” (coconut palm) widely used by the Maldivians from its roots to the tip of the tree,the sweetness of the coconut can be found in oils,desserts,cocktails,offering the most tropical delights you will ever smell and experience. Even the sweet scent of the coconut tree flowers are offered to many wedding couples and honeymooners.Taste for yourself the many delights offered at (

So You Know...

As you've likely heard and seen, there's an increasing focus on the authenticity of follower growth and engagement on social platforms across the Influencer Marketing community. The platforms themselves have taken measures to deter inauthentic activity and brands now more closely scrutinise the audiences of the influencers with whom they are partnering.

The Flea Network has implemented a system that will detect abnormal spikes in following and engagement, and flag these properties. Of course, such spikes can often be attributed to viral posts or high-profile brands that bring greater exposure to some content.

If one of your social accounts is flagged by our system without an obvious reason, we may reach out to you for assistance in understanding it. If we find any influencer has artificially inflated their audience size or engagement using paid acquisition or automated, third-party tools, we will remove them permanently from our influencer community.

Feel free to reach out to us at with any questions or comments.

Thank you!

Got it!
