Comparing it to the original Chloe Love EDP I find the Intense version less overwhelming than EDP. What I wanted to reduce in EDP is sillage which is monsterous and too much of soapiness. Intense smells deeper, sweeter, less soapy and flows around the skin right from the beginning although I can't claim there's no sillage at all. On the contrary it is translucent but quite persuasive. I'd say to all who wants to choose between EDP and Intense that if you are after the same as me (less into your face scent but with a beautiful translucent sillage) go for Intense.
im usually into oriental, musky, vanilla kinda fragrances.. all my self-purchased fragrances are all about the sexy & mysterious. but when Chloe Love popped into the scene a few years back, i thought i might make that floral transgression. still, it ain't totally 'me', so I couldn't bring myself to buy it. This Chloe Love Intense is just the right answer to my bewilderment. It is a Love at first sniff! All the loveliness of Love, rebirth with a dark edge, presented in its dark brown liquid like a love potion of vintage rum. When i finally bought it, it stayed on me like omg mfeo. so lovely, i wear it all the time day & night.
I love this. It has great lasting power, and I only need a couple of sprays.
On me it starts floral, ends up powdery and with just a bit of vanilla. It is suitable for daywear.
....I wish all flankers were this good!
This new take of the original Love, Chloé is absolutely enticing.
First and foremost, I loved the original. But as I sniffed first time this Eau Intense I knew immediately it would have grown on me even more that its predecessor.
Starts off w/ the Love, Chloé notes - fresh orange blossom and pepper, and then ventures into the florals with Lilac, Hyacinth, Wisteria, Heliotropine, all made deeper by some woods.
However, this is a powdery fragrance, and, while being very similar to the original, it has been enriched with Peru balm and vanilla absolute for a more ambry, oriental effect. Indeed, to me this is a "powderiental" - if I may call it so! The drydown is drop dead gorgeous: deep, warm and cosy.
Juice is darker /ambery (whitle the original was powder pink). Bottle remains the same.
Perfumers: Louise Turner and Nathalie Cetto-Gracia, Givaudan.
In a nustshell: Love, Chloé Eau Intense is deeper, has a greater sillage and it is a must try if you like orientals with a modern twist.
Very wearable even for daywear, it is classy, refined and very sophisticated. FB worth!!!
