Philosophy QvcUK Christmas Tsv Collection - 5 Piece Layering Collection

You really cannot beat QvcUK for value and every year I look forward to sharing the Philosophy Bumper collection which features as a QvcUK TSV - Todays Special Value. This collection contains an incredible amount of product at an unbelieveable price and is the most perfect gift for anyone that loves the brand but also needs some luxury and pampering in their life.

This collection is a great way to try many of the best selling and most loved fragrances from Philosophy. Included in this collection is a super size EDT 120ml Fragrance of your choice from Amazing Grace, Pure Grace, Falling in Love and Baby Grace plus 480ml Amazing Grace Shampoo, bath and shower gel, 480ml Pure Grace Shampoo, bath and shower gel, 480ml Falling in Love Shampoo, bath and shower gel and 480ml of Baby Grace Shampoo, bath and shower gel. I have the Falling in Love EDT so will be describing that fragrance.

Philosophy Falling in Love EDT 120ml

"when it comes to love you need not fall but rather surrender, surrender to the idea that you must love yourself before you can love another. You must absolutely trust yourself before you can absolutely trust another and, most importantly, you must accept your flaws before you can accept the flaws of another."


This fragrance is actually a scent I love to wear in summer, it is so beautiful in a way that I wasn't expecting when I first tried it a couple of years ago.  I love spicy scents or sexy floral's usually, but this is a warm, sensual fruity floral that has melted me. It is so hard to describe fragrance as it really is different on everyone, but when I spritz this I smell an effervescence, a bubbly fruity, uplifting scent of Blackberries, then as it settles a little I get the lift of floral from the Jasmin, followed by the warming almost buttery note of Vanilla that has a slight musky undertone. This really is a complex fragrance. When I wear this on cold rainy days it suddenly smells a lot sweeter, however on warm sunny days on me it dries down to a more sensual fragrance.  I think this is a happy-go-lucky, uplifting scent that may suit a younger wearer who loves sweeter tones. However all I know is it reminds me of happy times each time I wear it and that's good enough for me. As this is an Eau de Toilette the fragrance may disappear after a few hours but as this is a 120ml super size it means you can be very generous with it!

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 and makes a lovely bath, shampoo and shower gel. It lathers beautifully, creating soft and gentle bubbles and leaves a whisper of aroma on the skin and a light scent to the hair.

 An award winning, shower gel from Philosophy that will leave you feeling superbly clean, moisturised and smelling beautiful. 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.

This product really is a must have in all bathrooms. Clean, pure and totally unisex, I can think of no reason not to love this shampoo, bath and shower gel. This is the one product that you can pack in your travel bag and know that both you and your family can enjoy it. The fragrance is clean fresh air. It's clean washing, without being powdery, it is soap and water clean. Tones of leafy greens and frosted musk. It is that "just-stepped-out-of-the-shower-wrapped-in-a-fluffy-towel" smell. It's addictive! My husband and son love this top to toe, as it is a super quick product to use and I use as my bath and shower product. It does leave the hair squeaky clean, however I prefer not use SLS products on my hair due to scalp sensitivity. In the bath I add a few squeezes of the bottle under running water and it creates the most "heavenly" smell and soft, creamy bubbles and feels gorgeous on the skin. For use in the shower, the smallest amount is needed on a shower sponge as the product really does go a long way! It is great to shave my legs with too as it really leaves my skin silky smooth. I love this smell on my husband and really think the "Pure" scent would make a great gift for any man or teenage boy if you were thinking of splitting this collection up. After using this I have been able to layer my perfume on top without it being overpowering at all. So if you wear a scent from another brand, i find that it sits well on this.

This Lavender, silky 3 in 1 product is ideal to relax into and perfectly compliments the fragrance of the same name as part of the layering process. 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 great way to end my day, 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 have used this in all 3 ways and it leaves my hair beautifully clean ( if only very lightly fragranced) and not at all dry and my skin beautifully soft and lightly scented, however I prefer not to use products containing SLS, on my hair at the moment.  The bathroom will smell amazing for hours. The scent is ever so light on the body so I would happily add my own perfume after, without it clashing. A great start to the layering routine of this collection.

The philosophy on this bottle reads


 "falling in love doesn't begin with falling in love with others. it begins with falling in love with ourselves. loving ourselves is healthy and a fulfilment of out purpose. love must first grow from within us. learn to deeply and fully cherish your heart, your soul and your body and, only then, will you understand what it is to truly love another

This complete five piece collection also comes with a very pretty silver, sparkly cosmetics bag that easily fits all of these products in.

My thoughts on this collection : Having been a Philosophy fan for years, I look forward to these kits. I think it is so great to be able to try a selection of fragrances all within one collection. Each fragrance is so different, so if you are thinking of splitting this up for individual gifts, there is something for everyone. If you are keeping this for yourself, it is ever such a pretty pampering collection. All of the Shampoo, Bath and Shower products create such light, fluffy, soft bubbles that are a joy to wash and bathe in as they leave just a kiss of a scent to the skin. The EDT rounds it off with a beautiful burst of fragrance. An incredible value kit for the price when you consider how much this would cost if you went direct to Philosophy.

This collection is only available as a Todays Special Value on QvcUK on Saturday 28th October for 24 hours or whilst stocks last. If bought direct from philosophy this collection would cost £146.00 however you can purchase it from QvcUK for £44.96 and on four easy payments. You can purchase Here
