philosophy 3-piece fresh cream collection
Doesn't smell the same.
Love the perfume so I thought I would purchase the set. The other two products in this set are not true to scent. I really thought the lotion was off to the point of being offensive. They all smelled like a trio of different scents. I returned but will purchase the perfume again.
Continue to be so wowed by Philosophy.This was a gift for my step daughter who has allergies and doesn't wear much fragrance and she's crazy about it. She wears it everyday and loves how her skin feels.
Scent too light
I agree with some of the other reviews, this item has hardly any scent and smells no different then some other lotions on the market for way cheaper prices. This one is going back.
Are You Kidding Me
Where is the 'Staying Power'?? This was my first and last purchase.
Lotion has NO Smell!
After ordering the TSV HUGE sizes of the shower gel and body lotion (WITH PUMP), I wanted the spray fragrance to add staying power. It takes a LOT and even then, it fades quickly. Such is the nature, it seems, of ALL Philosophy spray "perfumes." But they need to realize that when we specifically are ORDERING a scent for staying power that we want it to last.
I understand WHY the shower gels and lotions are weak so that they won't interfere with our expensive perfumes.
I loved the TSV's lotion with the pump. The shower gel and lotion are heaven-sent (scent)!
But the lotion here has almost ZERO smell! What a disappointment as I had bought it to keep it in the kitchen. Another reason I bought this trio was because of the smaller size shower gel container which I can refill many times with the huge container. If I had it to do over, knowing what I now know, I would have bought the shower gel and the spray separately unless the lotion were almost FREE
Don't waste your money!
I listened to people gushing about the wonderful vanilla scent and since I am a vanilla fragrance person, I bought it. No vanilla fragrance at all. Actually, not much of any scent except a slight musk. What a disappointment! I am keeping it because the lotion does at least soak in nicely and I didn't want to mess with returning it and the dreaded shipping charges. Buyer beware!
CLEAN LIGHT SCENT
Fresh Cream makes me smell like a sugar cookie fresh out of the oven. Disappointed in the "staying power." Just doesn't last and have to keep reapplying it. What's the deal with that issue, Philosophy? I use several of your great products but this one needs to go back to the drawing board.
I am a nurse, and it is so hard to find a scent that won't offend or get a patient nauseous. So when I found this scent, it was perfect. I get more compliments on how I smell. The comments are " you smell so clean" or " you smell like you just stepped out of the shower"! So if you are looking for that scent this is for you. If you are looking for a strong perfume smell, this is not for you. Enjoy!
Not for me
I so wanted to love this scent because I have other Philosophy products and love them. Unfortunately, this just smelled awful. There was no lightness or good smell at all-to me it smelled like bug spray. So disappointed!! Also, did not last AT ALL.
Great Smell, Great Function, Weak Lasting Power
I must say I find it hilarious when reviewers say this scent is too strong. Frankly, that's a load of balderdash. This scent has virtually no staying power unless you jam your nose into your arm to get a whiff of it. Mind you, I actually quite like this scent--it has an almost bread-like smell to it. It's much more than just vanilla or cream. I truly like the fragrance, but, like so any other Philosphy scents, the staying power is non-existent. Very frustrating. I use Amazing Grace, Falling in Love, Amazing Grace Summer, Eternal Grace, Philosophy the Fragrance (one of the best scents ever), and now Fresh Cream but their lasting power is nil. That being said, both the shower gel and body cream are very moisturizing. Top marks for the way the products work, average marks for fragrance lasting power.
I love Fresh cream...it is light ....and smells like ice cream. Very clean smelling and you can mix it with other Philosophy fragrances....
I thought it might be too sweet ...but it is not. Soft scent...if you like vanilla smelling fragrances..you will enjoy Fresh cream.
On the fence with this scent
I gave this 4 stars because of the value of this set and the yummy scent of the 3-1 bath gel. The lotion is nice and creamy; not too greasy or heavy. However, I'm not sure about the scent of the perfume spray. Has a sort of "plasticky" note or undertone. Def a scent of vanilla but there is something else in it I just can't identify. The scent fades very quickly, even when I apply a light layer of Vaseline to my pulse points- a trick I've used for years to extend the scent of perfumes. The rapidly fading scent may be a good thing, as I'm not sure I really like it. Have not received any complements when I wear it, but people are not wrinkling their noses and asking " what's that smell" either. I'm keeping it, but probably will not reorder.
