Rated 5 out of 5 by Spitzy22 Soooo Many Compliments!!!
Can't believe I waited years to try this scent! More compliments than ever. It's like cotton candy, but not too sweet.
Rated 1 out of 5 by robob It has changed!
I read a recent review claiming that the rep for Philosophy says it hasn't changed. That perhaps we had the edt instead of the edp, and that is why it smells so weak. I have never in my life heard of a perfume smelling weaker than a toilette...That being said, I ordered this from QVC several years ago and it was lovely. I just ordered it and it smells like nothing....perhaps slightly vanilla. I get no blackberries at all. The one from before was strong with the blackberries. I do know that this line was bought by Coty, so I don't see how the Philosophy rep could say it was exactly the same. Back it goes....
Rated 3 out of 5 by Mandy41414 What I Think Of Our Beloved Scent
This scent is my personal favorite scent. I fell in love with it a few years ago but haven't had it to wear for a while. So I came here because I wanted to order more. But to my surprise & disapointment, I saw & read mannnny negative reviews. In a nut shell, people are saying that all of Philosophy's perfumes are different since they were bought by a new company. They say that the perfumes have a strong alcohol smell & that the scent lasts no longer than 5 minutes. So before ordering more, I wrote to Heidi ( the Philosophy QVC rep you see on air) She quickly got back to me ensuring me that nothing has changed at all & she doesn't know why people are saying this. Her only explanation is that people may have previously used the toilette & are now using the perfume which is weaker smelling than the toilette & therefore are just thinking it doesn't last as long as before. ( or vice Vera's, I can't remember which one she said is more powerful) I also read in one review that someone suggested that Dior Hypnotic Poison smelled similar to "Falling in Love" & had great staying power. So she suggested it as a substitute to the now "different" & "disappointing" Falling in Love. I decided to figure all of this out for myself by gong to a local store that sells both Dior & Philosophy perfumes. As far as Dior, although it smelled pretty good, I didn't find that it smelled all that similar to Falling in Love. I smelled the 'try me' tester bottle of "Falling in Love" & thought it smelled the same as I remembered. The scent lasted more than 5 minutes but all in all, the staying power of the scent is pretty weak. But I've always thought that the staying power was weak (even years ago). I was able to try "Unconditional Love" for the first time, as well as "Love Swept", and "Fresh Cream". I liked all of the scents ( Falling in Love is still my favorite though). But I found that "Unconditional Love" smelled similar to "Falling in Love" & it seemed to have much better staying power than" Falling in Love". "Love Swept" had the best staying power of all of them. I sprayed a few sprays on my skin around 4pm & could still smell it the next morning. I thought "Fresh Cream" smelled good but like "Falling in Love", it didn't have good staying power. But it was a little better than "Falling in Love". My suggestion is instead of just writing off Philosophy completely because of all the bad reviews, go to go a local store that carries Philosophy & decide for yourself. I personally think that I will try wearing "Unconditonal Love" because it smells like Falling in Love but seems to last longer. Or I might just buy the "Falling in Love" spray because it's less expensive & probably has the same scent & lasting power as the more expensive perfume. The lasting power may still be bad but I'll still smell like "Fallung in Love" & I'll save some money. I wish I liked "Love Swept" as much as "Falling in Love" because it did last. I liked it a lot, just not as much as "Falling in Love". I don't know how it would be possible but maybe the Philosophy perfumes from QVC are the only products with the issue. You could always order from QVC & see for yourself because they have a 30 day money back guarantee if you don't like it. I give the scent itself 5 stars. But I gave it 3 here because of the possibility that it smells different now & may not last. Sorry that this review is so long but I was trying to help others like me who are on the fence now because of the over whelming negative reviews. So I hope this helped someone out.

I tested this scent locally for the first time and loved it. Smelled my wrist all day!
I purchased here and there was NO fragrance at all. An alcohol smell at best but none of the notes I had smelled when previously tested!
What on earth has happened to the fragrances of Philosophy at QVC? There was nothing to smell! I used to use Pure Grace but found the same problem. What little scent you got was gone before you reached the bottom of the stairs!
Total disappointment. Won't bother to order Philosophy again.

I have been wearing falling in love for 10 years now and it is absolutely my favorite perfume. I get so many compliments on it when I wear and I just smelled clean all the time. And thanks to my mom I get a gift set every Christmas and every birthday so I always have it!!!

What is going on with Philosophy fragrances. I can use 3 of them, Falling in Love, Pure Grace and Unconditional Love. All three were favorites of mine but not anymore. I spray them and it's like I just poured alcohol on me. Too much money for a bottle of alcohol. Philosophy better go back to the drawing board and reformulate. This is horrible to find something you loved so much and then find out, they take the fragrance out. I will not be purchasing these fragrances until they change. I will go to Nordstrom's and try a sample before ordering anything else in the fragrance line of Philosophy. Soooo disappointed!
