Re: what does fresh cream smell like?

Fresh cream has a delicate note of vanilla...slightly like the scent of vanilla frosting made with real vanilla. It is understated and perfect as a moisturizing lotion après bath. It will not compete with your favorite fragrance.

Comtoir Sud Pacific used to have a vanilla/warm milk scent that was fantastic. Vanile Lait or something like that....haven't seen it in years though.

Re: what does fresh cream smell like?

I really wanted to like this cream because I received it as part of a kit and it was very thick and soft.  However, I couldn't get get passed the awful smell. I hate to be so graphic, but to me, the bottle I received smelled like baby puke. I read someone described the smell as spoiled milk, maybe that's a close assessment to mine.  I kept it on my bathroom counter for a long time and I tried it every now and then hoping I would change my mind, but I didn't. I had to wash it off everytime. Finally, I threw it away.

I'm not sure what my first post was but I'm sure it wasn't regret traveling in a time machine.

Re: what does fresh cream smell like?

If I remember it smelled like a hint of vanilla and whipping cream.  I havent bought Philosophy products in years since they changed all the scents, especially cinnamon buns

Re: what does fresh cream smell like?

A few years ago . I tried a sample at ulta and thought it smelled nice with a slight sweet scent. Last year on the black Friday/cyber weekend I bought 2 32 ounce sizes on philosophy .com.  While I have to say, they do not dry out my skin like a lot of products, the sent is nothing like I remembered at ulta.  It does not have much fragrance but almost smells sour. I would not purchase again.

Re: what does fresh cream smell like?

Oh, boy.  Sounds like I will be in for a let down when I get my TSV that I ordered this weekend, then.  I ordered the Pure Grace set that will have Fresh Cream as a 'freebie' in it.  When they compared it to the cashmere scent, I decided to take a change.
