The new philosophy loveswept fragrance has hit store shelves and is ready to sweep you off your feet, so to speak. This newest floral eau de toilette from the brand retails from $16 for a 0.50oz. to $46 for a 20z. bottle.
loveswept opens with a burst of bergamot and citrus that slowly fades out and gives way to notes of jasmine, lotus blossom and passion fruit with a base of amber and musk. philosophy describes the fragrance:
loveswept: A vibrant, feminine, romantic and youthful fragrance. by definition, loveswept is about energy and emotion, following your heart and seeing where that can take you and that is the sentiment that philosophy seeks to achieve.
I could not come up with a better description, philosophy definitely captured the essence of this fragrance with these words but let’s discuss this a little further.
loveswept reminds me of a picnic with a blanket spread out over fresh cut grass, not that it smells like fresh cut grass but because it makes me think of where I’d like to be. I imagine myself in a polka-dot dress, maybe being fed grapes by someone special; the things dates are made of. loveswept is a very bright and romantic floral fragrance.
On my skin, I got about 4 hours worth of wear before the scent started to fade but it lingered well into the afternoon on my clothing. While the wear wasn’t as great as I hoped on my skin, it is easy to extend the fragrance’s life with the loveswept shower gel and body lotion and layering them. Even on my clothing though, loveswept has great sillage, I felt like I was leaving a trail of citrus and jasmine petals in my wake whenever I moved. My favorite moment with the scent was right before it started to faded. The fragrance had calmed down a bit and I could detect more of the musk and amber in the scent. These are notes I can’t get enough of.
Here’s where you can get in on loveswept. To celebrate the launch, philosophy is hosting a great sweepstakes. The winner will receive the trip for 2 with a 4-night stay and $1000 spending money.
