The candle in the the Chloe collection was released along with the body cream, bath cream, and body scrub, and retails for $65. I appreciate the new Chloe scent as an easy to wear, floral/clean-type modern scent. While it may recall dryer sheets or detergent, and doesn't seem to embody the amber-floral suggested by its supposed notes, I find the scent to be cheery and upbeat, and thus a good choice on potentially trying days. It's the sort of scent I would recommend to someone trying to ease out of the now somewhat overdone candied fruit concoctions.

But what does all this have to do with the new Chloe candle? Nothing, unfortunately. The candle does not smell at all like the perfume. What it does smell like is a series Caldrea had going a few years ago; it was a series of rose scented candles (Rose Tobacco, Rose Anise, and Rose Peppercorn) and this candle smells exactly like one of them (can't remember which one, but they were quite similar, as I recall). These are now being sold at Marshalls and the like, so look for those there. So the scent is neither like the Chloe perfume nor one that justifies the price, what about the quality? Decidedly lacking. This candle tunnels badly, such that much product is wasted, which ultimately doesn't matter much because despite the scent being strong when the candle is removed from the box, there's little throw. The candle comes with a trying-to-evoke-luxury silvery candle base, with Chloe printed on it. Very disappointing.
