Those of you who are old enough to remember the late 80s know the fever dream of Debbie Gibson/Tiffany/New Kids on the Block. During that time, which was before the insane marketing of today, Debbie Gibson released a perfume called Electric Youth. It was pink, in a clear bottle with a black top, and for some unknown reason a pink spring inside. I begged my mother for it and finally received it for a birthday present. I absolutely loved it. It was everything I wanted it to be; light, slightly fruity, slightly floral, sophisticated. I wore that perfume every single day for probably a month before I completely forgot about it and moved on to other things. I havent thought about that perfume in over 30 years until I opened this package and sprayed my wrists.
Was I dreaming? Could it be? Light, slightly fruity, slightly floral, sophisticated. Immediately I was transported back to that bright pink bottle and days of lip syncing into my hairbrush.
I had to take this further. Down the internet rabbit hole I went:
Amazing Grace Magnolia - top notes bergamot and nectarine, middle magnolia and violet, base musk, amber, and driftwood.
Electric Youth - top notes grapefruit and citrus, middle ylang-ylang, watermelon, and red berries, base musk, woods, and amber.
Not an exact match by any means, but stunningly similar. Its as if Philosophy knew I was missing those halcyon days where my biggest worry was whether Id be invited to the sleepover.
Long story short - I love this and have been wearing it every day since.
Disclaimer: as a southerner I have to tell you this smells exactly 0% like a magnolia tree.
I received this product complimentary from Influenster for testing.
I was super excited to receive notice that I'd be getting a VoxBox - my 1st ever! I'd seen that Philosophy has a fragrance range and have been interested in checking it out. Fragrances of all kinds are things I've learned over my life that I have to start out cautiously with. Even scents I like can wind up causing or worsening a migraine in moments. I've had to forgo many incense sticks, lots of perfumes, some fragranced skin care, some laundry detergents, some household cleaners, some food even!
So I was hopeful yet cautious upon opening the box of perfume. It's a 2 FL.oz. bottle - super generous! - of heavy glass, the heft and shape of which reminds me of the Vera Wang Embrace perfume line bottles. The fluid inside is a light pink that leans more to "rose" than "baby."
I decided to test spray into the air, and it lingered for a pleasantly long time (hours!) without being too strong. Two days later I did it again, and still found the scent not overwhelmingly strong and pleasant in the main, so I thought I'd give it a whirl on my skin. Unfortunately the fragrance on my skin was less pleasant. Apparently, my pH doesn't play nicely with this fragrance. On me, the scent became much too strong for my nose and started my head aching. I wound up changing my shirt and wiping down my neck to get the scent off me as much as I could.
One positive for those who can wear this perfume: is lasts! On the skin and clothes, this perfume has great staying power! Had it been one that worked for me, I would wear it until all my clothes were imbued with it!
As another reviewer stated, fragrance is so very personal, not just because scents affect each of our noses differently, but the way each person's skin interacts with the scent, sometimes whether the person's personality conflicts with the smell, and even the memories we might have attached to the scent or even notes within the scent. I'm still interested in trying out other Philosophy fragrances, fingers crossed!

It's super long lasting and I don't even have to spray that much. Everyone at my job compliments me on it because it smells so good

A very soft, fresh, flowery scent. Not too overpowering, which is what I love!

Such a great perfume that doesn't get enough attention as much as it should! Its a perfect daily scent that isn't too heavy or overbearing. I always get compliments when I wear this scent. I'm already on my second bottle and couldn't recommend this more
Lizabeth from Waco, Texas
I have been using this fragrance for a few months. I love it! It's become my go to perfume for special occasions.

Magnolia is a great, safe everyday perfume. The longevity isn't the greatest, but I feel that way with most perfumes by Philosophy. I was stopped by someone while at the grocery store the other day to ask what I was wearing so that he could purchase it for his wife.
sachiz from undisclosed
Such a fresh clean scent! I love wearing this . My hubby loves this on me! I highly recommend this to anyone liking semi sweet nails

OMG! This is my third time purchasing the perfume because I absolutely love it. There is no other scent like it out on the market and I constantly get compliments everywhere I go!
Mindanae10 from Georgia
I've used this product for 2-3 years now. ONLY perfume I use. Have had the most compliments ever.

It smells really good but it doesn't last more than 20 minutes. It doesn't project at all, and it doesn't really smell like magnolias according to my friend. Maybe it's my skin chemistry. It's decent for the price I suppose.
Yiayia from Clarksville Tennessee
Smells heavenly. Layer with body lotion. The compliments are coming your way.
colieb from Moorhead, MN
I love this perfume! I get so many compliments on how good I smell!
Grover from Utah
I look forward to the new varieties of the graces, this is another beautiful scent, nice and sudsy
SunnyInAZ from Arizona
An absolutely lovely scent with the addition of magnolia. Floral but not cloying. Long lasting when purchasing the EDP. One of my favorite recent scents.
Deedee21 from Ohio
I wear this scent everyday and have received many compliments. The scent is light and fresh and I love it!
slugzee from undisclosed
This perfume exceeded my expectations. For the price of it I wasn't expecting much but it blew me away. Not only is is a great value but the smell is wonderful. It's super light and fresh with some sweetness to go along. A wonderful floral scent light enough for everyday.

I own just about every Philosophy scent. From all the Grace scents to Fresh cream. This new one is not one of my favs. I get a stronger floral than the OG grace at first and then it doesn't last on my skin. Won't buy this one again.
Becki from Stow , Ohio
I have been wearing the traditional Amazing Grace for a few years and it has been my favorite . I was very happy to find this variation .

I got one of those scented papers in an ad with my newspaper. I was pleasantly surprised that it was not overwhelming. It is a nice light scent for spring and summer. I ended up purchasing a bottle online and recommend it! I will probably purchase again! :)
Beth T from Orlando Florida
I love this scent. It's light, fresh and floral. I just purchased my 2nd bottle.
hannah from maine, usa
i just recently picked up this beautiful scent at ulta and everyone has been complimenting it! out of all the perfumes/body sprays/ etc that i've had this perfume is my favorite! the mini travel size is perfect for the purse and of course the larger size is perfect before you leave the house for the day. i'm not one to like super powerful scents and i'm normally picky, but this perfume has blown me out of the water!
floresxale from undisclosed
I think it is an excellent product! I liked a lot smells very clean and not that strong also the cream matches perfect soft and clean as well loveddddd it i can not wait to try the rest of them..

This one is not that offensive though. It's not your typical rose, potpourri smell It's more youthful. To me it smells like brown sugar and cupcakes. I think I could really like this, but it does have a strong floral smell that I couldn't wear long without getting a headache. Philosophy Amazing Grace Magnolia Eau De Parfum
Mandy007 from Medina, Ohio
I just received this today. I sprayed my wrists and I absolutely love the scent. It's beautiful and soft and perfect to wear to work.

I really love the magnolia perfume but I wish it had more staying power.
Essie from Texas
I enjoy the subtle, not overpowering scent.
