Philosophy Fresh Cream eau de toilette review

Philosophy Fresh Cream Fragrance Review

Love sweet, gourmand scents? You’ll want to add this one to your collection…Allsun shares her thoughts. 

There is a lovely caption on the simple, clean label of this sophisticated glass bottle, saying “every day brings joy”; without a doubt, this Fresh Cream fragrance brings me lots of joy.

Honestly, this is a really unique scent; it’s like nothing I’ve used before. I like my perfume big and strong, so this is a bit of a departure for me.  It’s a very sweet but light fragrance.   From the moment I sprayed it, I could envisage a big bowl of strawberries covered in freshly whipped cream…pure deliciousness.  Actually there are hundreds of sweet, foodie connotations I could use to describe this, like cupcakes, cookies, marshmallows and candyfloss, but I need to stop tormenting myself because I’m starving now!

A fabulous waft of vanilla is the first note you can smell, warm and sweet without being synthetic or overpowering.  A touch of creaminess also emerges, which means it’s a lovely and comforting perfume to wear.

As much as I adore this fragrance, its staying power is not fantastic.  It hits you the moment you spray it, and the smell does develop over time. Sadly, though, it fades pretty rapidly after an hour or two. It just doesn’t seem to linger like other stronger perfumes do.  But it’s worth topping up to get your sugar fix, and is a lovely addition to my dressing table besides.  There’s also a body lotion and 3-in-1 shampoo, shower gel & bubble bath in the range, so layering up might help the scent to last.

The eau de toilette is €43.20 for 60ml and available now in Arnotts and Debenhams Henry Street.
