Philosophy - 5 piece Luxurious Fragrance Layering Collection -Christmas Qvc Tsv

Sunday 9th October sees the highly anticipated launch of the Philosophy Christmas Collection, exclusive to QVCUK.
Philosophy Qvc Christmas Tsv Collection


Launching as a Today's Special Value (TSV) this beautiful collection is the perfect gift for that special someone that loves fragrance, Love and that feeling of being nurtured. Philosophy Inspire women to look, live and feel their best and use uplifting quotes on their products to lift the spirits and nurture the soul. More than just a gift, this collection is a gesture of love and one that I think would be gratefully received.

Philosophy Qvc Christmas Tsv


This ever so pretty collection contains an astonishing amount of product for the price and I was completely overwhelmed by its content and value. Included in this collection are 4 Full sized products and 1 supersized product. You have a choice of the Supersize 120ml EDP fragrance in  Baby Grace, and EDT in Pure Grace, or Amazing Grace. All of this is inside a Gorgeous Pink Faux Leather Vanity Case.


**120ml Eau De Parfum in Baby Grace -
Philosophy Baby Grace Eau De Parfum
The choice of fragrance I was sent within this collection was Baby Grace. This scent is just divine! A simple, yet classy fragrance, that is bright and uplifting whilst being comforting, clean and familiar.


Top Notes: Lemon, Bergamot, Mandarin, and Green Accord.

Middle Notes:
Poppy, Mimosa, Pepper, Rosewood, Jasmine, Patchouli, and Rose.

Base Notes:
Vanilla, Benzoin, Amber and Musk.


It is a really soft, floral scent that I think would suit women of all ages. When I first spray it on me I get a real burst of almost effervescent citrus and a crisp, clean, fluffy scent, that then mellows down to a comforting, warming scent. As this is an Eau De Parfum, the longevity is fantastic. Although it seems to die down, every now and then you get a beautiful hit of it when you move. A real uplifting, delicate, beautiful scent.


Amazing Grace Shampoo, Bath & Shower gel 480ml -

Philosophy - Amazing Grace Shampoo, Bath & shower Gel

  An award winning, shower gel from Philosophy that will leave you feeling superbly clean, moisturised and smelling beautifully. Containing Bergamot and clean Muguet blossoms with a hint of Lilly of the Valley this is a fresh, floral scent. I absolutely adore the Philosophy on the front of this bottle :" philosophy : life is a classroom. we are both student and teacher. each day is a test. and each day we receive a passing or a failing grade in one particular subject: grace. grace is compassion, gratitude, surrender, faith, forgiveness, good manners, reverence and the list goes on. being the smartest, the prettiest, the most talented, the richest or even the poorest cant help. being a humble person can, and being a helpful person can guide you through your days with grace and gratitude." This is gloriously feminine without being sickly sweet. A pretty, girlie scent.


Pure Grace Shampoo, Bath & Shower Gel 480ml -

Philosophy - Pure Grace Shampoo, Bath & Shower Gel
As with all of the 3-in-1 Shampoo, Bath and Shower gels from Philosophy, this also leaves my hair with that squeaky clean feeling. If you love to layer your fragrance then shampooing your hair in this is perfect as it smells fresh & clean. As much as I enjoy them as a shampoo, my favourite way to indulge is to add a few squirts under the running tap and allow the bath to fill with very soft, lightly fragranced bubbles. An absolute joy to bathe in this product really fits well in any bathroom. Clean, pure and totally unisex, I can think of no reason not to love this shampoo, bath and shower gel. The one product that you can pack in your travel bag and know that both you and your family will enjoy. The fragrance is clean fresh air. It is clean washing, without being powdery, it is soap and water clean. With crisp tones of leafy greens and frosted musk, it is that just-stepped-out-of-the-shower-wrapped-in-a-fluffy-towel smell.


Falling in Love Shampoo, Bath & Shower Gel 480ml -

Philosophy - Falling in Love Shampoo, Bath & Shower Gel


This is possibly my favourite scent ever from Philosophy. I have the EDP and love it so much. My little boy always comments on how nice it smells on me. Beautiful to use in the shower on a shower puff ( doogle, scrunchy thingy-ma-jig) you need a tiny amount to create an abundance of  scented bubbles. This pale blue, almost Lavender, silky 3 in 1 product is ideal to Relax into. As Relaxing as it can be uplifting, thanks to the fruity ingredient's, your mood and sense of smell will really determine how best you enjoy this. I love this fragrance of an evening as I really feel it is a relaxing fragrance, it just makes me feel really dreamy and happy. This can be used in the bath just by adding a few pumps to running water to create a soft, creamy lather, on a shower sponge it really foams up and creates a gorgeous cleansing product for the body and on the hair it offers a thorough deep clean. I use this in all 3 ways and it leaves my hair beautifully clean and not at all dry and my skin beautifully soft and lightly scented. I just really wish the Falling in Love Conditioner was available to follow on with as my hair smelt more of my own conditioner after.  The bathroom will smell amazing for hours. The scent is ever so light on the body with this so I would happily add my own perfume after without it clashing. Falling in love is not a romantically light, floral fragrance but more a warm, tropical scent thanks to sun ripened Blackberries, sparkling Jasmine and Vanilla. A great start to the layering routine of this collection.


Sweet Vanilla Fig Shampoo, Bath & Shower 480ml -

Philosophy Sweet Vanilla Fig Shampoo, Bath & Shower gel
This is everything you imagine it to be and much, much more. Warm, comforting and a hug in a bottle this is your Winter warmer must have. My son was poorly recently with a horrible cold and was struggling to warm up. I made a lovely warm bowl of water and poured this into it and he soaked his feet in it whilst wrapped in a blanket! He loved it!! This smells as delicious as it sounds with those warm Vanilla tones and that slight sweet undertone of ripe, juicy, fig. The front of the bottle has the recipe to make Sweet Vanilla fig which sounds just delicious, just what you need on a cold winters day. Leaves the skin lightly scented and your bathroom will smell beautiful for hours.




All these products are housed in a huge pink faux leather vanity bag with the philosophy logo embossed on a silver coloured plate. Fantastic for travel or as a make up bag.


My thoughts on this collection - I mean, just look at it! It is such a pretty collection. It is no surprise that I am a huge fan of philosophy and have been using the brand for over 10 years. I love their skincare and absolutely adore their bath products. This collection is pure luxury, serious indulgence and an every day treat at an outstanding price! Easy to split up, the collection can be broken up into several separate gifts or kept together as one beautiful gift. I believe that individually these products (not including the bag or Sweet Vanilla fig - a Qvc Exclusive) would retail at over £107.00 with the fragrance alone being £49.00 on QVC. For one day only (or whilst stocks last) on Sunday 9th October the TSV price will be under £50.00 and on Easy pays, making this outstanding value. You can purchase this product HERE (if it is showing Sold out before 9th October please keep trying).


**Please Note only Baby Grace is an EDP if you choose any of the other fragrances they will be EDT

    I've had Philosophy products in the past and I particularly like to use the shower gels as shampoo. However this TSV is a birthday present for a young girl and she'll be delighted with it. Anyone would be thrilled to receive this set in the lovely vanity case, I certainly would.
