I was given a decent sized decant from a friend and have worn this five times now.I am a chypre lover. This is very clean, polite and office friendly. It's a modern chypre without any of the bite of the older ones. Very disappointing, but at the same I understand why it is so clean and polite.On my skin it starts off with bright citrus. This is followed by a slightly mossy, dry woody patchouli overlaid with tart mirabelle plum and a little bit of white flowers. Lasting power on my skin is 4-5 hours and over 12 hours on clothing. It feels quite sheer.Chypres have taken a hit since the amount of oakmoss that could be used in the finished product was drastically reduced. This has led to perfumers desperately scrabbling for alternate ingredients to use to update older chypres and formulate newer ones. Chloe Nomade has made a modern chypre that will appeal to modern sensibilities, and not overpower people surrounding the wearer. This is what I meant by clean, polite, and office friendly.There is nothing particularly wrong with it. The tart mirabelle plum makes it different enough from other fragrances to be interesting, and it smells upmarket and expensive. It is simply disappointing to me because I love old school chypres. For someone who is looking for a daytime signature scent that smells expensive and unique, it may well be a good choice. The friend who gave me the decant wears it as her everyday work scent. She is a solicitor who cannot afford to smell like a walking dessert tray, nor can she afford to wear something that draws too much attention to her. This gives her an air of polished sophistication. It works for her, but not for me. Luckily, Mitsouko does.

This was my first ever perfume and it was given to me as a gift from my boyfriend. I don't really know how to describe scents because my nose is pretty dumb, but this basically smells great. It's not cloying or overtly-sweet, and it smells like fresh roses with notes of honey. It's light and great for daily use, and I think it suits my age group (19-24) well. That said, it doesn't have the best longevity and probably lasts on my skin for a couple of hours. I've gotten a couple of compliments on how it smells too :)

I love this fragrance. It is soft and feminine and very romantic. It also has good sileage without being heavy or cloying. This is a scent you can wear any season, anywhere, day or night and get compliments every time you wear it.I have always loved the original Chloe but I love Love Story even more. Absolutely beautiful..

Though I am capable of purchasing the newer version, I find this to be far prettier and less generic. I may be a grandmother , but I know a beautiful fragrance and I also know fragrance that is over hyped and over priced. I wore this when my children were young and always got compliments . To me it is a very classic , womanly fragrance that is warm and long lasting. I find nothing old laddish about it at all, except that it is not a sugar bomb . Though some claim it is loud, it is not to my senses. This fragrance was once very expensive, and it is a great value . Recently , I was shopping with a friend and we were looking at the new Chloe fragrances. She looked at me and said exactly what I was thinking “ the “old version “ ( classic ) is so much better . It is a much more defined fragrance . If Heaven had a perfume for women , it would be this womanly fragrance.
