Confessions of a Philosophy Girl: Fragrance

An introduction – my name is Colleen, I’m Carla’s friend and co-worker. I have a few blogs of my own including The Pretty Pear, a weblog about plus size style and fashion, and my personal blog Woops! I’m a litle obsessed with beauty products. And by “a litte” I mean that I might need a bigger apartment to hold all of my stuff.

I can be pretty fickle when it comes to beauty products. Sometimes I’ll find something I like and stick with it for years. Usually I’ll try something, kind of like it, but then move on to something else that catches my eye. Rarely do I stick with one line but Philosophy has me hooked… bad. I’ve tried many, many Philosophy products. Some I love, some I can live without. I’ll be telling you more about them in my posts.

Amazinggrace This is Amazing Grace. I know, you’re sick of hearing about Grace. Grace this, grace that. I don’t own the perfume (yet) but I’m wearing the body lotion right now and it’s just… sigh. It’s not a scent I thought I’d be nuts about but it’s just so soft, clean, feminine, subtle, all those things I want to smell like. It doesn’t smell soapy or like flowers, just clean. Like a lady! It smells like a lady. I have the body wash, too. It’s nice but not out of this world like the lotion. I can’t wait to layer!

FallinginloveNow meet Falling in Love. I like Falling in Love but I don’t love Falling in Love. I spritz it on when I don’t feel like smelling strongly of anything in particular, it’s a safe and neutral scent. I’ve never had a guy drop to their knees over it, so don’t believe that bit of hype. This perfume’s other products are good as well. The 3-in-1 is very nice and calming though. I might repurchase both just because they’re good staples for me.

  1. I love Philosophy too! And you’re right, the Amazing Grace line is so yummy (my personal fave is Pure Grace)- nothing like smelling fresh and clean and perfect :)

  2. Colleen,
    I have been through three bottles of Falling in Love and several of its 3n1s. And I love love Amazing Grace!!!

  3. haha, I’m the same way about beauty products. I haven’t tried many Philosophy products, but I’m constantly eyeing them at Sephora, they’re so cute and all smell so yummy! I have Falling in Love currently. I like how incredibly sweet smelling it is. I might have to try Grace, though– I’ve been looking for a fragrance that smells nice but it subtle and not obvious or overpowering.

  4. You might want to try Trish McEvoy’s #9 Blackberry and Vanilla EDP. It’s similar to Falling in Love but I like it much better and it has more staying power as well. I just discovered it and I’m not sure which came first…Trish’s scent was released in 2000 and I haven’t been able to find out when FIL came out…do you know? Thanks!

  5. Confessions of a Philosophy Girl: Bath & Body

    This is the last post in my Confessions of a Philosophy Girl series. I hope you’ve enjoyed it and I’ll leave you with my thoughts on the bath and body products including their 3-in-1′s since that’s where the fun is….
