It is amazing!


I have read lots of reviews touting the great smell of Philosophy’s Amazing Grace. But I have bought a lot of perfume recently so I was hesitant to try something that I wouldn’t absolutely love. Well love is an understatement the smell of Amazing Grace is near hypnotic to me. It’s so fresh and clean smelling and very feminine without being overpowering or too floral. The first day I had it on I kept wondering what smelled so good as I was running my errands, then I would remember it was my new perfume.

Amazing Grace is a great scent for women who don’t like to smell perfumey, it’s very light and refreshing. If you are lucky enough to have a Sephora store near you, they even have great little trial size bottle for only $15. I think I am adding the lotion and bath gel on my next trip to Sephora.

Philosophy Amazing Grace

Amazing Grace fragrance for women is an uniquely feminine blend of soft, floral blossoms accented by a hint of light musk.

Indulge yourself – and those you are most thankful for – with good-for-your-body-and-soul treats from Philosophy’s Amazing Grace Collection.
