I have owned the spray cologne for about 5 months, and I loved the scent and the strength at first. Even though I store all of my fragrances in a cool, dry place, my Philosophy scents have all turned quickly. I'm disappointed, since the fragrance is so nice, then turns to a harsh chemical smell. For the price, I don't expect that to happen quite so quickly. Heck, I've still got old Charlie cologne that hasn't turned!
I wanted to like this...but, it is just okay. It smells like the soap that my grandmother uses. Actually, the soap smells better than Amazing Grace.
I love Amazing Grace! So clean, and so fresh! It's one of my favorite fragrances
A blanket of cashmere is what I would describe this scent. Its so warm and wonderful, very soft and not at all overbearing.
I bought this in 2005. I was at SpaceNK avoiding going to the law library to study and sprayed this on. When I finally headed into the library I was so distracted by the scent. Its a very peacful kind of smell which is a strange way to descibe a smell. What does "Peace" smell like? Well it smells like Amazing Grace. But it lulled me to sleep almost over my case law! When I left the library later that night I went straight to SpaceNK and bought a bottle!
I went through an entire bottle in two months. If you have a boyfriend who doesnt like over the top scents this is defo the one to wear. Its as light as a feather!
I will repurchase this one day!
** I've repurchased this. Love love love you Philosophy! When I don't know what to wear, I spray this. Feminine, great for t-shirt and jeans day. A cashmere blanket and some cocoa by the fire.
It doesn't linger at all, it stays close to the skin so it doesn't offend anyone. Jasmine with musk. I wear this to work. You have to get close to appreciate it. With this perfume you prove that less is more. I will always have a bottle of this in my perfume collection.
I have to change my review of this product because it completely lost something for me. I really liked it at first and after about 4 days straight of wearing it, it started to smell terrible to me. Perfume is hard to review because it's so personal and can smell different on different people, but this just did not work for me. It even started giving me a bad headache. Thank goodness for Philosophy and Macy's return policies!
As for staying power, it stays on me for most of the day. I always buy the lotion and the spray perfume. I rub a little bit of lotion on each arm and my hands then spray the perfume on my wrists. It actually has great staying power on me.
So I'm still searching for my perfect light, clean, girlie everyday scent. Clinique Happy Heart is my next try...
Possibly my most hated fragrance of all time. Absolutely horrific and yet so omnipresent. Philosophy has people totally suckered.
Ewwwwww. I bought this because Sephora lists it as a customer favorite, and I regret it. It smells like old lady. Luckily I bought the $16 travel size so I didn't spend too much money on it. The scent only lasts for an hour at most.
i like this, its fresh and clean, not soapy or powdery but just right balance of clean kinda like fresh laundry hanging outside with a breeze blowing the scent towards u, does that make sence? It's just lovely!! this is perfect for casual days, or for work., would not offend anyone because its not overpowering, very light!! the price is steep and i wouldnt purchase this myself because it doesnt have staying power! the bottle is nothing special either but i dont mind it. Amazing grace and falling in love are my favorates outta the philisophy line, i'm not crazy about the others tho. rate this a 3.5
Ick! Dries down to a nasty poisonous something. Would not recommend.
This is the first Philosophy scent I have purchased and it was a recommendation from a friend. I was pleasantly surprised by the clean, fresh smell. I tend to lean more toward muskier or woodsy scents, but this is a nice staple to have in your collection for days when you want something light but lasts all day.
I have gotten more compliments on this perfume than I can mention. But in the same breath, most people tend to recognize it so it isn't a very mysterious fragrance.
