Philosophy Raspberries & Cream Scented Body Spritz Review

Morning loves!

I’m smelling all raspberry-licious this morning thanks to Philosophy Raspberries & Cream Body Sprtiz!



Golly, I sure hope Philosophy does some more scents in body spritz format as I’m really enjoying these. I tried out Philosophy Apricots and Cream Sprtiz a few weeks ago when I purchased both it and the raspberry one from QVC and must say both are turning into my fruity scent favs for Spring.


What is it?

A lightly scented raspberries and cream body mist formulated with moisturizing agents to keep skin hydrated and sweet smelling!

The Good…

Pretty gorgeous stuff! It has a tart, slightly bitter note of raspberry that quickly mellows down to a creamy blend of juicy fruit and cream. The scent gives off a luscious, decadent layer that easy on the nose without being too fruity or sweet. I think the cream really adds a special element as it morphs the raspberries into a richer dessert scent versus being just a simple fruit. Loving how long these last and what great throw they have too as obviously they contain a nice level of fragrance since each only requires a few spritzes for all day wearing.

The Bad…

Not much bad to say about it aside from the fact it does kind of start off smelling weird (Apricots and Cream had the same problem). The raspberries come across very bitter and tart at first but the dry down becomes very creamy so it’s only first spray you’ll end up with the more overpowering note of fruit.

Who might like it?

  • Fruity scent lovers!
  • Anyone looking for a subtle, light scent for the warm weather!
  • Anyone who likes a body mist that actually sticks around for a few hours!

Who might not like it?

  • Anyone who doesn’t like fruity blends or blends that smell foody, cake-like.

Final Thoughts….

So far I’m loving on the Philosophy Spritzes and pretty hopeful they’ll introduce more. This set me back more than I’d like to pay since it was $20 plus shipping on QVC but I don’t mind too much considering how great the throw and linger is.  I do urge you to give it a chance because first spritz really isn’t anything fab but the drown down is really gorgeous.

Nice stuff!

Anyone try these yet?
