I got a little sample from Sephora the other day which had this scent and the original Chloe perfume. I thought the other one smelled very good, but the husband rated it as "old lady". I tried this one on and, although I was enthralled, the husband was rapturous. So, I went ahead and ordered the small size.
This smells like a sweet floral to me with a strange top note that doesn't agree with me much. Then after five minutes it fades down and matches to my body chemistry. I wouldn't say I prefer it over my Viva la Juicy, but it smells delectable and light for summer.To me, it smells like an apple orchard next to a field of flowers. I HATE floral scents and this one works because it's so light and sweet. I'd say anyone 10 to 30 can wear this and pull it off.
I am not a fan of heavy or cloying perfumes in the summer. I leave my Poison for the winter months alone. This one smells fresh and inviting, although I wouldn't say that it's a signature scent or anything mysterious/new/original. As long as the husband loves it and I'm okay with it, I'm sure I can save the whole 1 oz bottle up to a year or two.
The packaging is divine though, love the birdcage design. It looks very classy and elegant on my vanity.
See by Chloe is a great Spring time frangrance, hitting notes of honey and apple, and a smidge of musky. It was sampled first in one of my Elle magazines and I instantly was drawn to it since I love citrus scents. It's a bit floral but only a bit. The scent doesn't change with your chemistry and lasts for several hours. It's a winner, in my book.
i first smelled this in a magazine insert and fell in love. I couldn't wait to buy the bottle and wear it everyday. Well...something changed when i got the perfume because it didn't smell as good. It smells like apples and honey to me, with a slight floral tinge. But it faded within a couple hours and smelled sort of off, like sour/rotting fruit/flowers.
Sadly I returned it after a few weeks of trying to make it work on me. Must be my body chemistry though, because man, on paper, this stuff smells amazing!
This is a fantastic scent. It is a medium weight perfume, not too heavy, not too light, which is perfect for everyday wear. I am in my 40's and perfume does not last on me like it did in my 30's but this one lasts in varying degree's of intensity for a good 7 hours, with lingering traces in my hair and on my wrists 9-10 hours later. This is a big deal for me as unless a perfume is so powerful it makes me ill, it's nigh impossible to find one that is gorgeous and lasts the day without being so powerful it makes me feel ill. Unlike most generic designer perfumes this one does change throughout the day, from a playful opening to a flirty, sexy middle, to a classy yet youthful end note. And the end note is musk, so how clever to make this sometimes cheap smelling note classy.
Lots of people have said this is a young perfume, and I agree, it can be worn by the young, but it is in no way too young for someone my age - quite the contrary - it is very ylang ylang heavy but in a youthful way, but I would not say ylang ylang was necessarily a young smell, but mixed with the musk, which I would say is a white musk and the jasmine, the overall effect is flirty and youthful, but not 'young'. The Jasmine and Ylang ylang keep it sophisticated and the vanilla and musk steer it into a more youthful territory, which is very clever as it means everyone can wear and enjoy it. I love it and the bottle is really luxe and edgy. I love Chloe Intense and now I love this more, thanks Chloe!
This is a lovely, non invasive scent. I don't normally wear "commercial" perfumes, but after testing this one, I decided it would make a good spring option. It opens with a rather busy floral/apple note that's sweet, and as another reviewer mentioned, maybe some honey. The best part, for me, is the lovely musk that develops as a base note on drydown.. It's complimentary to my body chemistry and lasts quite awhile on me. The sweet/floral doesn't last that long, but the deeper notes do. I would say this would probably be appropriate for all ages, and might make a good choice if you wear perfume to work, as it's not likely to bother anyone. Those that like deep orientals (like me) may or may not like it. I do, because it's so different from what I normally wear.
Its from my Mum. I have to love it....
See is a very different fragrance from other Chloés and I suspect it was creating with the exact purpose of reaching a younger - probably more remunerative - public. The new fragrance, signed by perfumer Michel Almairac is defined by Chloé as chic, elegant and energetic floral - fruity.
The composition opens with fresh notes of bergamot and apple blossom, which is very different from the fruit. The heart is a floral mx of jasmine and ylang-ylang and the base is predominant, featuring some synthetic vanilla and musk with additional sandalwood accords.
It reminds me of some blast from the past, maybe one of those "perfumed deodorants" that looked so cool in the Eighties.
I'm sure it will be a success among teenagers because it has so many reminiscences of childhood, but it doesn't conquer me.
As for the bottle, which supposedly was inspired by a vintage bird cage, well that makes me ever sadder...
No one else has mentioned that this smells like HONEY! At least to me, I definitely detect some honey drizzled over a few crisp granny smith apples with a bouquet of flowers thrown in. It is a very light scent... you could probably spray this on yourself a million times and it would still smell very light and airy. Anyways, I think this smells pretty good, definitely not groundbreaking but very sweet, spring-y, and non-offensive. According to my vanity, Chloe fragrances seem to be a favorite of mine.
This fragrance smells very similar to Bill Blass Nude perfume. The original Chloe perfume smells better than this one in my opinion.
As a fan of Chloe and Love, Chloe, I had to try this. And to my amazement, it's my favorite of the three! A perfect fragrance for spring, like a fresh floral bouquet with some sexy spices thrown in for good measure. A previous reviewer mentioned Downtown Girl, which was my absolute favorite way back when, so maybe that's why I find this irresistible. My guess is that they're very similar -- it's probably no accident that the images of the ad campaign are so similar (each features a young girl in a leather jacket). It's sexier than the very green Love, Chloe, or the sweet lychee rose of Chloe, but there are enough similarities that if you like one, you should like all three. And for those of us who grew up on Downtown Girl, it's not just springtime, but youth in a bottle.
