Sweet scents and morning talks about beauty & fragrance is a good way to start the day. So when the ladies of Philosophy Philippines invited me to morning tea at The Lobby in Manila Peninsula to do exactly this, I couldn’t say no. They showcased the brand’s holiday 2014 products as well as fragrances under the Coty portfolio.
Orange Cranberry Spritzer Shampoo, shower gel and bubble bath, P1,395.
This energising blend of citrus blended with the tart sweetness of cranberries is sophisticated, balanced and bright. The hint of citrus topped with intoxicating cranberry makes it refreshingly sweet.
Almond Glazed Shampoo, shower gel and bubble bath, P1,395.
Enjoy a sweet moment with the nutty richness of almonds blended with a hint of warm sugar. OMG. This smells sooooo good. When you lather this on you, you’ll feel like you’re a glazed donut!
Snow Angel Shampoo, shower gel and bubble bath, P1,395.
Inspired by the wonder of freshly fallen snow, the unique scent of snow angel is designed to transport you to a beautiful night dotted with stars and snowflakes. I love the delicate yet sweet scent that reminds me of babies and angels.
Christmas Cookie Shampoo, shower gel and bubble bath, P1,395.
Sweet memories are in the making and in the baking. This season, indulge in the yummy and delicious scent of christmas cookie. OMG. The smell will really remind you of Christmas morning. The scent lets you feel like you’re Martha Stewart prepping for Christmas in your Pinterst-worthy kitchen, waiting for your gingerbread cookies to come out of the oven.
Vanilla Birthday Cake, Melon Daquiri and Raspberry Sorbet. Shampoo, shower gel and bubble bath, P,1695/set.
Enjoy guilt-free indulgence all season long with the Philosophy Classic Set. It comes in 120 ml bottles, smaller than the usual 480ml but you get thrice the scent in one set. It’s a great stocking stuffer for your girl friends who can’t get enough of the classic scents of Philosophy.
Sending Holiday Wishes Trio
Shortbread Cookie Shampoo, shower gel and bubble bath 120ml, Sugar Sprinkles high-glows, high-flavor lip shine 12ml, and Sweet Creamy Frosting Body Lotion 60ml, P1,995/set.
Aside from learning about Philosophy’s Holiday products, we also helped ourselves with the fragrances from Coty. I wish there’s a blog option where I can let you smell these scents. It’s better for you to experience it firsthand, so head on over to the nearest Department store near you to try spritzing and spraying these perfumes yourself.

After our morning tea and talk, we head over the Philosophy’s Glorietta store.
Here are some of Philosophy’s Christmas offerings.
I haven’t tried any of Philosphy’s skin care as I always go for their exhilarating shampoo & shower gel. Hopefully I get to try Hope In A Jar for Dry Skin & Eye Cream as I’m really interested in finding more great products for my skin.
Salmon Eggs Benedict and Philosophy Classics. You can never go wrong with these 😉
So in love with Chole Love Story that I wanna have it for breakfast! 😉
