It's absolutely beautiful. It's powdery, floral, and spicy. But it's sexy, extremely sexy. I think the wearer has to have a weird seductive side yet be innocent at the same time. The shy/confident type. The lover and a fighter.
Men and women alike love this. I'll catch people smelling me. They can never get enough but they can never figure me out. They look at me more confused.
I made a man fall in love with me while wearing this. His face was buried in my neck the entire evening while he promised the world to me.
But more than that, when I wear this, I am so in love with me.
Sadly, the scent doesn't last as long as I hoped. Only a few hours.
The bottle its perfection. A small gold chain connects the caps to the bottle.
When I went to buy another, I attempted to try a new sent, but in the end I realized Love, Chloe was so me. And so gorgeous. So unique. And perfect.
So my relationship with this perfume continues.
Not sure what moved me to buy this in the first place, since I wasn't all that crazy about it. It's appropriate for daytime because it's light, powdery, with hints of floral. It doesnt accost you. I really prefer my favorite, more assertive & sexy scent for nighttime (Creed, Love in Black.. for dates and whatnot). BUT, as it turns out, my boyfriend loves Love, Chloe and hates the other one. Other men have complimented me while wearing this scent as well, and I suppose that's really the point of fragrance.
Guess I'll be enjoying the Creed in my alone time continued >>
I really wanted to love this one, based on all the reviews that described it as a soft, powdery, and old-fashioned floral. Sadly, although I can detect softness and creaminess deep down, a shrill, headache-inducing note (the pink pepper) gets in the way. So many modern mainstream fragrances give me headaches that I've largely stopped trying them, so I was disappointed by yet another dud.
AWWW YEAH. I've spent MONTHS searching high and low for my next fragrance (particularly for my Wedding). Fragrances frustrate me; I have bought many perfumes over the years only to grow sick of them or find a note that I hate that becomes most prominent on me. Lately, each morning as I was getting ready at my dresser and looking over my options for fragrance, I was disappointed. Fragrances are very nostalgic for me and I was more than ready for a new fragrance to take me through the happiest time of my life.
About six months ago, I tried a perfume by Frederic Malle, called Iris Poudre. I loved it SO much, that I seriously considered buying it despite its $200 price tag. I decided to keep looking to see if I could find something I loved just as much and it took me six months to do so.
Enter: Love, Chloe.
I don't know a lot about perfume, but I know that I'm picky. I also know that fragrances often turn on me by the end of the day and usually the least desirable note is the one that's most prominent on me. I typically like floral, powdery scents (hence, Iris Poudre) and Love, Chloe I would describe as exactly that.
It's beautiful. I don't know how to explain it, but it's like I took a shower in the nicest smelling soap ever. I typically don't like soapy-smelling fragrances, but this is luxuriously classic-smelling. I don't know how to describe this adequately, but it's just so unique and clean, soft (and a little spicy), romantic and warm, but almost as though it couldn't come out of a bottle. I think this is the first fragrance that has made me understand what a signature scent is supposed to be: you can't put your finger on why you love it, but it just works.
LOVE Love, Chloe.
note: I'm using the EDT.
I was originally going to buy Chloe EDP, but then I saw the EDT of this. My thoughts about Love, Chloe EDP are mixed. The scent is lovely, but when it drys down it gets suffocatingly powdery. I don't mind powder, but the dry down for me on this EDP was just too strong. Having said that, I really did adore the scent. So I decided to opt for the EDT and hope for the best.
It's fantastic. The drydown here is quiet, and subtle. This perfume is so ethereal: the people around you will smell it in faint, intoxicating whiffs they won't able to get enough of. It starts out quite fresh, still floral. I can actually detect Chloe, Chloe in this from that freshness. This just has a more soft, floral drydown. The powder in the EDT is perfectly balanced. If I had to describe the overall scent, it would have to be clean, fresh flowers, something along the lines of roses and freesia (and I mean that in the least artifical way possible. There is nothing false about the floral notes in this perfume).
Honestly, whenever I think of a true Parisian perfume, I think of this. There's nothing overstated about it. The packaging is beautiful too. I love putting this perfume on: simple, feminine and ethereal.
This is the scent enigmas wear. It's hard to forget it, but difficult to describe how intoxicating yet softly insubsantial it is. A romantic scent, I think.
Love, Chloe is beautiful and almost shockingly original. Consider that the popular "statement" for the last few years in fragrance has been either fruity floral, fruitcholi, or vanillic gourmand or a combination of the two. In the last year, the avant garde subset of the popular has started using oude in everything. and there you have it: fruity floral, fruitcholi, vanilla/gourmand bomb, or oude. For the mainstream, that's mostly it.
And then Love, Chloe comes along. It starts as an old school floral, say 50's style - all the lilac and hyacinth/wisteria you can handle and then some. Underneath a powdery, dry iris is hinting at things to come. Over the drydown, the light touch of sweet powder begins sweeping through the retro florals. Just when the balance feels as if it's tipping away from retro floral, the clean Egyptian-style musk begins opening up. Now it becomes a shifting balance between powder and clean musk, with still just a touch of the retro floral keeping the scent girly.
This is shockingly female, beautiful, complex, and references history along with modern innovation. And what is even nicer is that in the I Only Wear Fruity-Floral Or Gourmet landscape, Love Chloe is flourishing!
I very much enjoy the feel of this scent, it's complexity, the warm prettiness of it, and the beautiful quality. The sillage isn't huge, but it makes a statement and it lasts forever. I can't wait to try the Intense version - it may possibly be as good, but it won't be better.
The bottle is lovely - classic, clean lines, nicely functional but pretty. UPDATE: I'm occasionally getting my nemesis, the unlit tobacco note, in the drydown. I'm still amazed at the perfumer's audacity and the popularity of LC in the current fragrance climate, but I may not go FB after all. I'd like to see what Love, Chloe Intense is like.
My first perfume ever ! I received it as a gift for my birthday, and before this i never wore any fragrance before. I think it is simple and sweet, for everyday. It is a good way to start with fragrances. The packaging is really beautiful, I kept the box because it is SO Chloé and chic. I would buy it again ! (I am named Chloé also, it gives me one more reason !)
However, someone at work once asked me if i was wearing a men's fragrance (?!)
This fragrances smells like a great memory. It's smells like my mothers makeup when I was a little girl so I can only attach it to the elegance and dignified beauty of my mother. I never thought I'd love such a powdery scent but it just smells like home and I feel like a real woman when I wear it. It's like this is a how a woman SHOULD smell. I tend to wear this or sensuous nude when I'm feeling feminine and well...sensual. I also feel strong and yet soft when i wear this. I don't really speak fragrance language with notes etc because perfume to me is about how it "feels". I think I'm old fashioned at heart these days as many modern fragrances with their, "basil and mulberry leaf" concoctions make feel like I am wearing salad dressing. So, look into this fragrance if you want to feel like a woman who's not afraid to be and smell like a WOMAN. Just magic.
Most recently formulated fragrances fall into the fruity floral category. If not they are probably gourmands. Or plain florals. Love Chloe is pleasantly unusual. A very pretty powdery scent. Iris, lilac, rice, heliotrope, very well blended, no harsh edges. Has a retro and chic feeling, reminds me of old school powder and lipstick. Very feminine, not outspoken or innovative, but soft and pleasant. I gave 3 lippies because it doesn't excite me but I would buy a small bottle if I come upon a good deal.
