I’m pretty hard to please when it comes to fragrance. I have my go-to scents that I love, and it seems that they all share a common denominator — base notes. I live for musk, sandalwood, tobacco and other heady, woodsy, warm notes. When those are topped off with a dash of citrus and on occasion a floral, it’s all good.
I recently received the prettiest bottle of fragrance from philosophy, their latest fragrance launch—loveswept (philosophy: follow your heart)—and the juice inside is just as lovely as the bottle containing it.
Some great news before you read on, philosophy is giving a trip to Paris for two–the loveswept spread the love sweepstakes. Be sure to enter!
Here is are some details about loveswept:
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.

Why I am swept up by loveswept:
Well, first off, I’m looking to get swept off my feet. By someone tall,dark, handsome, employed and who can spell Tracey… Truly, isn’t that what we are all looking for if we do not yet have it? That feeling of being loveswept?
There is something whimsical and nostalgic about loveswept; merely the name is enough to make me want to unapologetically spray it on every inch of my skin. But there is more than that.
The scent is seemingly light, yet it lingers. Just like you want your fragrance to do when you leave the room. Or leave him. On a pillowcase… While loveswept has top floral notes, which usually I avoid, it works surprisingly well with my chemistry. It smells alluring and seductively sexy on me. (Yes, I asked.)
I love the signature philosophy bottle—squared, simple and easy to hold. I’m still trying to tell if the bottle is pink or the juice is pink or both. It’s so pretty. The box is equally as pretty with what appears to be a watercolor print on the front.
