This is my go-to, signature fragrance. I never get sick of it. I always have some on hand (LOVE the roller ball to keep in my purse) and I always get compliments on how good I smell when I wear it.
I am pretty split when it comes to Philosophy products in general. I have had less than stellar luck with the skincare line; however, the fragrance and body care products are always winners in my book!
Even though Falling in Love is priced similarly to other fragrances, I do find it a little spendy for what you get. The scent is very subtle and to get a noticeable payoff, I find myself applying more of this than other scents I own. But in my opinion it is well worth it.
I am sensitive to heavy scents and this is not offensive in the least. It is sweet and feminine, but not in a preteen way. I have heard people say it smells like fruit or berries. On me, it smells like freshly spun cotton candy with a little hint of white musk at the end.
The bottle and color of the perfume itself is so pretty too and I have never had an issue with the bottle leaking or malfunctioning in any way. This is by far my favorite fragrance. I just wish the perfume oil was more readily available and the solid perfume packed more of a punch...
I'm partial to Philosophy fragrances because I usually find them to be feminine without being sweet, and not too strong. Plus I love to buy the rollerballs and purse sprays - it's great to have some affordable options for high quality perfumes.
Falling in Love is a subtle, clean, feminine scent with floral notes plus a touch of vanilla and fruit. It lasts well, 3-4 hours, but isn't overwhelming when first applied. It also has pheromones, if you put any faith in the science about those. I really like this fragrance; it's one of my favorites from the brand.
This a a straight up blackberry musk, with just a touch of vanilla. It's nice to have around, the same way you want a good vanilla musk in your collection, for those days when you can't decide what scent to wear. I've had both the real thing and a dupe, and quite honestly I enjoy the dupe more! It's just a bit more tart, and the musk drydown is far more pleasant and longlasting. This is good because while i am willing to spend the big bucks for some scents, I prefer to save on sweet/vanilla type scents, there are so many there's no reason to spend $$ on them.
This smells a lot like Amazing Grace (which I do love) only it is sweeter... almost creamy...milky. Hard to describe but so good! I don't know what notes Philosophy uses in these scents but they smell very soft and clean with some sweetness and mesh great with my body chemistry. I think Falling In Love might be a little more youthful than Amazing Grace just due to the fact that the sweetness is turned up a notch.
I "Fell in Love" with this fragrance as soon as smelled it. It is light, airy, sensual, calming and comforting. Very unique blend. Has a ton of staying power. One of my top ten scents. Smells like the original Amazing Grace's cousin. If you love AG you will love this... same goes if you hate it. They are very similar. This is the more fun, younger cousin! Staple in my routine.
I'm very scent-conscious. Unfortunately my husband is allergic to most perfumes. Pure essential oils don't bother him so I've been either wearing vanilla, lavender and/or rose "straight" or mixing my own for years. But I've also kept searching for that perfect product that both of us love right out of the bottle... or at least that I love & he can tolerate ;-) .And this is it! True, it doesn't last very long ~ I carry a small bottle with me when I go out & always feel so much better after re-spritzing. But I am in love with Falling In Love and the way it makes me feel. My husband's reaction? "What did you add to the vanilla oil... it smells great." As others have said, I'd give this a 5 if it lasted longer and wasn't quite so pricey.
This smells of wild onions to me. I do not want to smell like a Outback Blooming Onion.
Love love love this scent its like spun sugar! Pure magic- sweet and beautiful. The scent only last about 5-10 minutes though before it disappears :'(
I wish it would last longer- it obviously lost a star for that otherwise it would be 5 stars...
If you think this scent is too "soft" just spray it more. If it takes more than three sprays, then you may have to accept the fact that you are one of those women who leaves a tornado of perfume pouring through the office, store, restaurant, etc.; making people cough, heave, and forcing them to breathe in agony all day. If I were to make a list of my top 5 products that I need and love; this would be in it. It is the one thing I would need on a deserted island...besides cases of wine. An empty tropical paradise may SOUND nice but in reality it would be boring as $hit. This bottle is what I would reach for before my own child in case of a fire; (children can run; perfume cannot). I may even take it if I ever get sent to Guantanamo Bay just to get the pleasure of smelling myself while being tortured-it might soften the blow. I clearly love this product so if you don't get the picture by now you are as crackbrained as Origins is for discontinuing my favorite eye cream. TRY IT.
I usually really like the scents by Philosophy, but this one was really weird! It was kind of floral, but the only way I can describe it was that it had an undertone of meat at the dry down! Really unpleasant - it almost made me sick.
