Philosophy Gardenia Blossom

Philosophy fragrances are really under-rated in my view – what you get are very wearable perfumes that won’t assault your (or anyone else’s) senses, but instead settle onto your skin for unobtrusive and distinctly gentle scents. Don’t get me wrong – they don’t disappear to nothing, but they’re the kind of fragrances that you can live with very happily on your body quickly becoming a part of you if you see what I mean.

Pure Grace is my favourite – a soap-clean scent that if I was Minister of Scent I’d have sprayed all over London – the tube, the buses and the pavements for a happier, calmer city! Anyway, all this meandering is just by way of a head’s up that there’s a new Philosophy fragrance on its way – Field of Flowers Gardenia Blossom, Β£32, on a John Lewis exclusive from 22nd January.
