Have you ever owned a beauty product that smelled so damn delicious you were a little bit tempted to, um… lick it? For me, that product is the vanilla cake shampoo, shower gel and bubble bath range from Philosophy.
I remember the day we first met. I was perusing the David Jones beauty department on my lunch break and a new brand caught my eye. I can’t remember exactly what pulled me in — their packaging is fairly minimal — but by the time I reached the counter I was hooked. It was the smell. My God, the smell. For as long as I live, my bathroom will never be without it.
Philosophy is the ultimate when it comes to beauty products that smell like food, so it was hard for me to narrow down my choice of fragrance. In the end I settled on Vanilla Cake. It's like bathing in every child's dream birthday party. It's what I imagine babies smell like after those cake smash photo shoots. It's... oh, you get the point. It's damn good.
