I've been a loyal Philosophy girl since QVC first started selling the line. I still love and use a variety of Philosophy products, skin care, bath line, etc. However, I must admit that if you have used the fragrances of days past (before the company was sold and bought) you will very likely notice a scent difference. To be sure I had one bottle of Pure Grace saved from a previously purchased gift set (before the company change) and a more recent bottle of Pure Grace, and sadly there is a difference. It is the staying power and that the amount of alcohol vs. perfume oils seem to be different; the lovely aromatic scent disperses quickly, leaving behind a stronger alcohol smell. I also find little difference between the Body Spray, which you expect to be less concentrated, and the bottled spray fragrance or eau de parfume. It feels like certain ingredients have been compromised for some reason, a disappointment for such a beloved product. Another thing is I always received compliments on how good I smelled wearing the Grace line, even after a full day of wearing it! Not so much now unless it's very soon after applying and I layer it on using the 3-in-1 bath gel, lotion, body spray etc. Spraying more and more of it on does not seem to make a difference either. Philosophy has stated that the formula has not changed and remained the same. I still love the scent of Pure Grace, the other Graces, and Philosophy products in general, but something has changed with this iconic favorite as others have pointed out. I debated for some time to write a new review as I really hoped this was a temporary thing.
Rated 2 out of 5 Not a lasting scent
As much as I have always loved pure grace over the years, I'm getting sick of paying the high price that is not delivering. I'm getting to the bottom of my bottle and am now sad as I'm not sure what I'm going to do. I love the smell but like everyone else is commenting, the scent does not last. So why should I spend this kind of money on a deemed "high end scent" when it does not produce "high end lasting results?" Please rethink philosophy's new philosophy!!! I'm sure many of us would come back.

The worst thing Philosophy did was sell out to COTY. I've had drugstore products better than this "NEW PHILOSOPHY" line.The quality is not the same...only the prices are. Coty needs to put their name on the Philosophy line to warn old customers of the change. I purchased Pure Grace in the bath cream, body lotion and 4 oz fragrance spray. Not one of these products have staying power. I love this fragrance but it's way too expensive to have to reapply 6 times per day ! Time to move on.
Rated 1 out of 5 by lula1980 Very sad!
I am running out of my Philosophy fragrances. I have a few scents, because I love them all!
I was about to place my order for Pure Grace, when I saw the low reviews and started reading. I can't believe my favorite fragrances have changed and people are so disappointed, now I don't know what to do! why is QVC or philosophy not doing anything about this, I don't understand. As many other consumers, please go back to the original formula. I will wait to see if anything changes. I am a huge fan! and I hope things will change.

philosophy is loosing alot and i mean alot since cody took over and the fragrances have been changed. fragrances dont last at all and the prices have stayed the same or have gone up.You need to read the reviews and realize how many customers you are loosing.Such a shame because people were willing to pay higher prices for the OLD LASTING ORIGINAL FRAGRANCES.!!!!!!!!
Rated 1 out of 5 by LOLOG Original Fragrance is Lovely BUT....
You need to go back to offering this in Parfum not spray fragrance. Spray fragrance doesn't last and just isn't the same. So disappointed.

For years I have been stopped by strangers to tell me how "fabulous" my perfume is. For years strangers have asked where they can purchase Pure Grace.
My family noticed the difference months ago and asked if I had changed my signature scent.
There are no more feel good moments, unfortunately you have ruined a great product and I'm sure I will not be the only one to be looking for a new signature.
You underestimated females and the product.
Rated 1 out of 5 by lr925 New Formula is Inferior. Very Disappointing.
I must add my voice to the other reviewers who have complained that the new Coty formula is not the same as the original, either in the spray fragrance or body lotion. It is practically fragrance-less. I have used Philosophy Grace products as my mainstay for many years, especially Pure Grace, but I can no longer do so. I, like others, am asking QVC to intervene with Coty. Did they think we wouldn't notice the downgrade? Almost insulting. Please bring back the original Grace formulas.

Many customers including myself love your fragrances....but the company has changed the lasting quality of the fragrances...even with the layering, as your spokespeople sell, the fragrance does not last. I too am one who loves the fragrances and still will use it, but I am unhappy with how it has been changed and also because so many of us have stated the very same complaint and the company will not go back to its original formula. I
am more disappointed in Philosophy/Coty for ignoring the customers who have noticed the change in the products.

I LOVE this but the scent just DOES NOT last even when layered!!! I may have to find a new scent. I've been wearing this exclusively for a few years now, starting to wonder is it worth my money, sigh sigh
Rated 1 out of 5 Dissappointed
I am a long time user of the Philosophy Pure Grace products but I am very disappointed in this Pure Grace Spray. It smells NOTHING like the pure grace products that I had purchased in the past!! I am going to sent this item back. I am also not happy about having to pay return postage!!

I have always loved the Pure Grace spray fragrance; in fact, it's the only perfume I've worn for years. People, men and women alike, would stop me in stores or elevators and ask me what fragrance I was wearing. A few spritzes would take me from morning to evening. I recently ordered a few bottles because I don't like to be without, but these newest bottles just don't smell the same. It's like they've been "watered down". Until I read the reviews--something I've NEVER done for this product--I couldn't understand why my favorite perfume wasn't measuring up to its own standard of excellence. Philosophy, you have been bragging for years about your obsession with "higher quality standards"; I think it's about time you put your own words to work and get this problem corrected. Please bring back "Pure Grace"--the original formula--I'll be waiting!!
