What else has Coty Changed in the Philosophy line?

I have found my perfume(last 10 years) Amazing Grace has been changed by Coty. Has anyone else noticed other product changes?

Did they recently change the Purity? I alway bought the Purity & MDW duo at the Q in the 16 oz size, which usually lasts me about 6-8 months.

I recently got a 30% discount at Philosophy and ordered a 24 oz Purity. It smells different, and not a "good" different.

I think they changed the purity.I threw out my bottle and stopped auto-ship.Amazing grace should now be called amazing alcohol.

Coty? When did that happen?

I know that their fragrances never lasted. Body lotion lasts longer than the fragrance. I have not purchased from Philosophy in a long while.

I gave up on Philosophy without Cristina Carlino to verify the ethics haven't changed I'm done with them. I am now a Josie Maran and L'Occitane user. Much happier. Ethics count with those companies. The products I've found deliver in a big way. I'll never go back.

Has the SUPERNATURAL line of mineral powder foundation and the poreless flawless (creme) been ruined as well?

My signature used to be Amazing Grace and every one would always ask what I was wearing...clean, freash, light, soft.....The last time I received a large bottle of AG it smelled like bug repellant...not kidding! I hate to throw the bottle out as it is large and I've tried a few times thinking that I must be wrong...nope, and I need to toss that bottle. I havent' found a fragrance to replace...loved Bobbi Brown Beach...sort of the same light fresh quality as my old AG....but it doesn't last on me! Still on the hunt as I fill in with some other favorites.

The Micro Delivery Wash used to be a go-to for me. The last bottle I got was awful - runny texture and it smelled off. It's almost gone and I won't repurchase.

I miss recess!

I don't know about the Philosophy line, but I bought some Emeraude today and it is NOT like the perfume I remembered growing up!

I got a bottle of Amazing Grace on Black Friday from Ulta and it smelled the same to me. Lasted all day, too.

I don't know about the powder, but I use the Supernatural poreless flawless and the most recent tube I purchased from philosophy.com was the same.

There have been many changes in the ingredient deck in philosophy products over the years; both pre and post sale to Coty. I use AG, PG, FIL and UL and have not noticed a difference in scents. Same with Purity. I buy from phil.com, QVC, other on line sources and Ulta and have never received a bad batch. I do believe that there are some bad batches of product out there, as many folks here have reported. maybe bad production runs? Could be my nose is not savvy enough to detect changes in scent.

this is the first time in over five years I have not purchased or given Philosophy as gifts for Christmas....I have used Purity with my Mia for a long time as well...when my bottle is finished, I won't reorder.....my beloved shower gels as well....almost no scent in the newer ones; I have a few older ones I have pulled out and they truly are more fragrant, more lathering, and longer-lasting scent...and creamier, less drying.

their website is deluging me with pleas to order but I am finished.
