    I guess it’s fresh and floral? :D I really like that bottle, though.

    • Robin says:

      LOL…I guess so!

  2. Absolute Scentualist says:

    Peony in large doses isn’t a favorite of mine so I’ll give this one a pass. I haven’t tried any Philosophy frags yet, though Falling in Love looks nice.

    • miss kitty v. says:

      Yeah, I love peony as a flower, don’t really want to smell like one.

      • Robin says:

        Ditto. And odd that they’re making it sound like some sort of wildflower thing, and then it’s all peony.

        • miss kitty v. says:

          Yeah, it should be called Field of Peonies, not Field of Flowers.

      I have a weakness for the philosophy fragrances, but don’t tell anyone. Amazing Grace is the anti-perfume and perfumistas SHOULD shun it – it isn’t perfume, it’s something else.

      That said, Inner Grace is the one I’d recommend most to people who actually LIKE perfume. It’s a pleasant, gentle white musk with a floral overlay and I love it. It is indeed calm. I like it when I travel – it’s inoffensive to people around me but a nice touch of home. It feels comfortable. Like soft socks.

      Baby Grace and Pure Grace are just soap and water pretending to be fragrance.

      I originally hated Falling in Love but came to love it. It’s very fruity, with something floral (jasmine?) and probably more white musk in the background. It’s too much for me in summer but I quite like it in winter. Its flanker, Unconditional Love, manages to be both boring AND too sweet; one of the few philosophy fragrances I’ve returned.

      I like Falling in Love best as the shower gel, and I have the Field of Flowers shower gel but haven’t tried it yet. It must have been popular for them to put out this fragrance.

      • Robin says:

        Sorry to say I have not loved any of them, although they’re all pleasant. Will give this one a shot when I see it.

        Don’t take away my perfumista card, but I wore Amazing Grace before I knew anything about perfume and I have never received so many compliments and inquiries about any fragrance ever. To my “new” nose it is a poor muguet and white musk composition designed to appeal to the masses and it does. People LOVE Amazing Grace. Their floral scents (the “love” line) are sickly sweet, purple smelling scrubbers to me, so I will probably skip this one even though the bottle is cute.

        That said, I have been a slavish devotee of their skin care products for over twelve years now and will never use anything else. I always had problem skin and I am still getting used to compliments about my complexion. I’m 41 and was asked for ID while trying to buy beer at a Springsteen concert last April. My husband pointed out that they check anyone who looks under 30, but that’s good enough for me! I would recommend their skin products to anybody. Even my boys use the purity skin wash.

    Like lermonprint, I’ve enjoyed a number of Philosophy frags, especially Inner Grace, which is really quite nice – a good office scent as well, and certainly affordable. I’ll rpobaby sniff this, but I’m not a huge fan of peony and will probably stick to IG and Relax (a lavender scent) and the occasional dose of Amazing Grace when only comfort scents will do.

    • Robin says:

      Hope you’ll like it as well as the others!

  4. wilz says:

    Need some help:

    Does anyone know where to buy Philosophy products in London?

    • Robin says:

      No, sorry! Maybe see if they have a list of retailers on their website?

  5. Jillie says:

    John Lewis!

    • wilz says:

      Thanks Jillie.

      After HemlockSillage’s comment, I wish I can get out now to John Lewis and get a bottle (or if not have a sniff at least). It sounds very interesting. And I absolutely looove the bottle. Unfortunately it’s 01:27am, so just have to wait till morning…

      • Jillie says:

        This is late, so you may not see my message, but I was wondering if you managed to get a sniff? Did you like it?

  6. HemlockSillage says:

    Philosophy makes great comfort scents. They are generally linear and with that laundry fresh clean vibe that perfumistas shun.

    I have the Philosophy Field of Flowers shampoo/body wash and love it. It is “fresh and floral” as advertised. I don’t get a huge peony note, just a gamish of wildflowers. For a beat the heat clean scent, I like it. Caveat: I also like Amazing Grace for the same reasons, so if that is on your loathe list, skip Field of Flowers. Seems like an odd choice for a winter launch, but I will likely add it to my collection come springtime.

    • Robin says:

      Thanks for the rundown, and glad to hear it is more wildflower than peony!

  7. Pipeo says:

    I think this sounds rather lovely and worth a try. Amazing Grace is one of my comfort scents. I’ll be keeping an eye out!

    • Robin says:

      Let us know how it is!
