Get Cooking
By Lisa Link Phillips

Lastly, I moved on to Philosophy, and had an absolute ball trying all three of their "Cookbook" collections: Frozen Desserts, Baked Goods, and Homemade Pies.

Each set includes 4-4.5oz.bottles, each a different fragrance. And, at $30 per set, these would make a great gift for yourself, or someone you love!

In fact, these sets seem (to me at least) to be specifically designed as gift sets. The gingham-touched packaging is adorable (Philosophy is all about gorgeous  philosophy the cookbookpackaging), the price is certainly right, and each set has a cute little extra: a recipe on each bottle for the actual "goodie" for which the product is scented.

So, after your dessert-scented bath or shower, you can make a little magic in your own kitchen. Since I haven't tried to make anything as of yet, I'm not sure about how the recipes will actually turn out, but since most of the fun is in trying, why not take a chance?

Each set has a variety of very fragrant choices. The Frozen Desserts collection focuses on fruity aromas: Raspberry Sorbet, Orange Sherbet, Grape Popsicle and Strawberry Milkshake.

The Homemade Pie collection is varied, with the tart and sweet fragrances of Coconut Cream, Lemon Meringue, Blueberry, and Key Lime.

The Baked Goods collection has a rich and delicious selection of Chocolate Chip Cookies, Banana Nut Bread, Cinnamon Buns, and Pumpkin Pie. This one is my favorite of the bunch all the scents are fabulous, but the cinnamon buns fragrance is to die for!

The aforementioned scents are all VERY accurate in their interpretation, and will trip that yummy switch in your brain almost immediately.

These formulas are suitable for washing skin and hair. And, while there's really nothing "natural" or special (unlike the Body Bakery and Cake Beauty) about the ingredients in these washes, they are pretty gentle, produce lots of bubbles, and can be used as shower gel or bubble bath.

However, because my hair is highlighted, and a bit dry and cranky as a result, I only use these formulas to wash my bod, leaving my haircare routine to the folks at Aveda, Paul Mitchell, and Vidal Sasson. Consequently, I can't really speak to using them for shampoo, but I do think they are very nice for keeping skin clean and soft.

You can purchase Philosophy products at a myriad of online merchants, including
