Philosophy Fresh Cream Warm Cashmere Eau de Toilette is the brand’s newest fragrance that’s a re-take on their very popular Fresh Cream Perfume that everyone loves so much. QVC had a Today’s Special Value with the scent and I wasn’t going to purchase the set as I felt like I didn’t need everything that came with it but in the end I gave in because I realized what a great deal it was.
The set includes a huge 32 oz 3-in-1 Shower Gel, a 16 oz Glazed Body Souffle, and a 4 oz fragrance. I just felt like I have way too much shower gel and getting yet another massive bottle felt very unnecessary to me.
Philosophy Fresh Cream Warm Cashmere launched about two weeks ago on Ulta’s website but I haven’t had the chance to sniff it in store as none of the stores I went to had a bottle. It must have been faith that during the Today’s Special Value launch I located a bottle at Ulta and was able to finally sniff it. I fell in love with it but a 2 oz bottle was $40 bucks. I didn’t hesitate splurging the extra $20 and grabbing the QVC set as I got a 4 oz bottle plus the two extra body care items. Even if I don’t need yet another shower gel I’m still happy to have hauled this was it was a great deal plus I’m really, really loving this scent.
If you want the set it’s still very much available at qvc.com in your choice of scents. I’d highly recommend grabbing it at this price as why spend $40 when you can get a bottle of the scent at double the size plus all the extras for $20 more and free shipping!
If you’re a little uncertain about blind buying a fragrance don’t be scared as this is a very easy pick up for anyone that loves vanilla or gourmand fragrances. It does not disappoint. It’s especially an easy pick for those who loved the original Fresh Cream fragrance.
As with the original blend this contains a healthy dose of super sweet creamy vanilla topped with fresh whipped cream. My friend and reader of Musings of a Muse, Felicia, told me she smelled a bit of Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Crush in the mix but I honestly didn’t get that. My body chemistry morphs this into a warm, slightly spicy sugar cookie blend. It’s delicious! I just want to drink it.
I think the original blend had a very clean white cake vanilla note but this fragrance has a cheekier side with a bit of spiciness. I thought it would smell like DKNY’s Cashmere Mist for some reason but it doesn’t at all. It’s all vanilla, cake, and a warm, comforting spiciness that makes me feel like I walked into a kitchen where someone was baking snickerdoodles.
This is yummy and a must have so I’m slapping a Muse Approval on it.
I had some reservations about ordering the set from QVC but I’m glad I didn’t miss out on the great deal. The layering set really allowed the scent to project and linger on my skin. The scent itself lasted quite long without the help of the other items but it was nice having a body cream to layer it with to give it an even more intense warmth and throw.
Don’t miss it.
