Philosophy Pure Grace

I just received my order for Pure Grace Supersize set and I'm already disappointed. The whipped creme is barely scented. I applied it about 45 minutes ago and there's absolutely no trace of a scent.

 

I discovered PG while shopping at Sephora and it quickly became my go-to scent because it's perfect for almost any setting. The body gel and lotion I purchased from Sephora seem to have a higher concentration of scent than the ones from QVC. 

 

Has anyone else noticed this? Did I just get a bad batch? I love the huge EDP but not sure if this is a set worth keeping.

Re: Philosophy Pure Grace

I noticed this as well. I received a set as a gift from the store you mentioned and I noticed that the scent was still on my clothes when I was loading them in the washer to be washed. I have used this scent for a long time but had purchased it from qvc. I never noticed the scent on my clothing for days after wearing when I purchased from qvc. Sadly, I've heard (from this board) many stores are phasing philosphy out due to it being available on qvc. I hope this is not true. IMO it's a better deal when the scent lasts even at a higher price.

Re: Philosophy Pure Grace

I love Pure Grace. But after I spray it on me, I feel that the scent just goes away.  I have to keep spraying it on me. I won't be purchasing it again. I've used it for several years, but I'm done carrying the bottle in my purse just so I can keep spraying it on every half hour. I've never had any other perfume do that. They've always lasted a long time. I did try another scent comparable to Pure Grace called Klean. (I think it was spelled with a K.) I got it at Ulta. It lasted longer and there were several different Klean scents.

I read that QVC Philosophy is manufactured separately for the Q. That is why they can sell it at a lower price, not the same quality as in stores.

Yes my last order of Pure Grace was a dissapointment. Not what it use to be.

Re: Philosophy Pure Grace

I wonder if this goes for other brands on qvc? I stopped using a cleasing conditioner sold by qvc because suddenly I wasn't getting great results. Oddly enough a friend and long time user of this same product mentioned she stopped using it for the same reason. I asked about it on the board for this product and quickly was very sternly informed "nothing has changed in quality or quanitity of ingredients" from a casual qvc board contributor not a social marketing employee from this company who is paid to post on this brand's topic constantly. LOL

Re: Philosophy Pure Grace

I wore Pure Grace today - layered of course. It’s 12 hrs later and I can still smell it on me. In fact, I spray less of this scent than the other Philosophy scents bc it’s on the stronger side. It’s overwhelming otherwise.

Re: Philosophy Pure Grace

@Whatnow.  yes, sad but true. I found an old bottle of Pure Grace shower gel, so old that it had separated. I shook it up and used it, it was fine. The bathroom was full of the Pure Grace scent and I could smell it on myself all day. I do miss the old formula from the Q. I guess they can sell it at a lower price because it is diluted.

Re: Philosophy Pure Grace

my 25 yr old daughter loves the Pure Grace and she swears the Qvc items are poor quality she only buys from Sephora.
