Mmm, I like this perfume. I'd give it four lippies if the staying power didn't suck. I really like the packaging too. This is a very light, summery, floral perfume that makes me thing of warm sunrises at the lake. I'd definitely wear it during warmer months as a day perfume.

This product is okay. I received it yesterday in a Sephora sample and am wearing it today. 1) Admittedly, the color scared me and it still does a little when I first apply it -- bright pink. However, after a few minutes the pink goes away and leaves a nice gloss so I'm starting to feel more comfortable with it. 2) I'm not sure how I feel about the applicator. Once I use most of this …Read more

I hate to say it but I love this perfume. It's really grown on me and is kind of a quiet addiction now. The top notes are a bit sweet and strong but once it dries down, it's a lovely powdery vanilla with a slightly cheeky citrus smell on me and I can't get enough of it. It also has nice lasting power, at least from what I've experienced in my fairly limited perfume …Read more

I wanted to like this and liked it very much at first. But once it dried down I wasn't as pleased...just a bit too bland for me. Too bad it's the one hubby has liked the most so far in my limited quest to find the perfect perfume. I'd consider wearing it again out of the store :) but I won't be buying it.

Just tried a Sephora sample of it tonight. Loved the scent, loved how moisturizing it was. The pieces of salt are very large and the scrub did sting on my legs a bit. It was a decent scrub and I felt refreshed and softer afterward. However, it didn't stand out as anything special to me and because of its rather high price, I won't be purchasing it. I'd use a sample again …Read more

I just tried a Sephora sample of this and I'm pleased. The texture is very smooth and rich and the smell is different but not unpleasant to me. A couple hours after I used this today, my husband thought I was wearing makeup when I wasn't...it was just a glowy, even complexion I had from the moisturizer. I looked this up to see how much it would be to purchase...wow, about the same …Read more

I just tried a sample of this from Sephora. Like a pp, I had to wash it off after less than 10 minutes. It was absolutely awful. It smells like some sort of cleaner gone wrong or one of those cheap dollar store scents. I can still smell it on my wrists even after scrubbing with soap two different times but thankfully it's not nearly as strong as it was. Sorry but it was horrible. I will …Read more

Gels/ Soaps - Philosophy - Amazing Grace Bath, Shampoo & Shower Gel

While I love my Hope in a Jar and Purity Made Simple, I am not a big fan of the Amazing Grace Bath, Shampoo & Shower Gel. For some reason the scent just turns me off a little bit and while the gel feels luxurious, it doesn't go very far. I'll finish using the small bottle I have but I won't buy it again.

I'm not a perfume person so bear with me. I just tried a sample of this from Sephora and am perplexed. When I'm not smelling it up close, the scents that reach my nose are very nice, perhaps a bit flowery. As I bring my arm up to smell where I sprayed it on, the scent is sweet, sweet, then bam, musky and almost cheap-smelling. However, as it sits on my arm it becomes less bitter and …Read more

Right now I'm using a sample I got from Sephora. I am not a perfume person at all and like very few scents. However, when I smelled this perfume after dabbing it on lightly, I was really pleased. I don't find it to be overly sweet. I've been wearing it almost every day since I received it and continue to be very pleased with how it smells on my skin.
