Amazing Grace

Amazing Grace

I decided to wear Philosophy's Amazing Grace fragrance both today and yesterday as I wanted to wear something light and this seemed like the perfect fragrance to wear on a cool, stormy weekend.

This is how Philosophy describes Amazing Grace on their site:

How you climb up the mountain is just as important as how you get down the mountain. And so it is with life, which for many of us become one big gigantic test followed by one big gigantic lesson, in the end, it all comes down to one word. grace. It's how you accept winning and losing, good luck and bad luck, the darkness and the light.amazing grace is philosophy's best selling spray fragrance and was created to make a woman smell amazing and infinitely feminine.

Amazing grace embraces the essences of feminity and allows you to wear a beautiful dress every day of the week, even if you dress casually. finally people will say "my you smell good," rather than "your fragrance smells good.

You need this product if:
- you dislike a heavy fragrance
- you do not want to smell like powder, fruit, sweets, spice, vanilla, evergreen, or citrus
- you want a guaranteed compliment a day
- you need to add the ultimate staple to your fragrance wardrobe

When I first sprayed it, I was overwhelmed with the scent of alcohol but that soon dries down. Then comes a very light floral scent that's slightly sweet, I think it's primarily lily of the valley with red berries. That mixes with the scent of white musk. With white musk I either love it or hate it, luckily in this blend it's very pretty.

This is a great year round, all day fragrance. The staying power of this fragrance is incredibly lousy and if you really want it to stick around all day, it would be better to apply in the hair or on clothes.

I also have the shampoo, bath, and shower gel and the salt scrub in this line and feel the fragrance is a bit stronger on both items, but the staying power doesn't last outside of the bath.

Amazing Grace retails for $35/2 oz. and is sold anywhere Philosophy products are sold or through Philosophy.com.

Forgot to mention that Philosophy bottles are notoriously known to leak. My Falling In Love bottle is fine but the Amazing Grace bottle arrived leaking and continues to leak as I spray it! Philosophy must invest in better bottles because this is inexcusable!

I don't understand it but it chokes me, all that white musk. It's the same when other people wear it around me. Once or twice a year, white musk smells clean to me; other times, it's just a thick cloud of powder in the air. I think I just prefer other types of musks bc otherwise AG is a nice scent.
The scrub is one of my faves - it smells just slightly more floral than the rest of the AG products to me. And it works well, and dissolves nicely into the tub, too. I've actually given up on the pumace style scrubs now, because this one I don't have to worry about making sure the shower floor is rinsed afterwards since it's all salt.
I must test this at some point.
Thanks for the review.

I am planning to test it at some point, all because of your review. I am a little bit scared of white musk, however. It is always very harsh on me.
