This is a very clean, soapy,fresh rose. It is a true rose with some white musk. I tend to wear this on hotter days and when I want a subtle rose that won't have a lot of spillage. For cooler days and for nights I prefer Stella. Packaging is gorgeous, lasting power is moderate, and price is high but worth it. Will repurchase.
Roses de Chloe is one of those rare finds. I came upon it by accident when a SA introduced me to Chloe and then the roses version which was instant love. After sampling massive fragrances that are either too sweet, musky, fruity, chemical-like, there is an appreciation for Roses de Chloe's pureness with nothing but roses as the top note. This Chloe perfume managed to capture the delicate true scent of the rose as you would experience it when holding it and leaning in to take a whiff. It is fresh, subtle and it opens up to a lovely vivid soft rose garden on a sunny day which invokes the senses and exudes a feeling of happiness, elegance and beauty. Less is more as I find one spray from the 75ml bottle lasts the entire day by providing a periodic hint-of-rose presence. This scent is luxurious and precious . . . like embodying the spirit of a rose in a bottle. Priceless.
I love this perfume, it smells like juicy roses. If you have smelled the 'regular' Chloe fragrance, this is like they plopped a bunch of roses on top of it, so it has that same green element to it. A very up front, uncomplicated, fresh and direct rose scent.
I have never smelled a perfume that smelled more like actual roses than this scent. I can practically hear bees when I smell this. Seriously, straight up roses. It's supposed to have notes of white musk and amber (which I LOVE) but all I can smell is roses. It's subtle though, not overpowering at all. Love the bottle.
If you are into roses this is the perfume you should definitely look into. It's just that - scent of freshly cut roses. Nothing more, nothing less. I absolutely love the scent but it's very basic, so I don't know if it's worth the price. I previously owned the limited edition of Lancome 2001 Roses and that was the bomb for us, the rose lovers. Unfortunately the Chloe EDT runs short of that. It's lovely, mind you, but very very basic. If you are looking for a cheaper version, you might want to check out the Yves Rocher's rose fraiche EDT. In my opinion it's very similar but more straight forward and even more generic, yet the price is much more affordable. I own both but do prefer Chloe since it's less "into your face". Staying power leaves much to be desired. The bottle is cute thought :)
If you want a rose fragrance this is a good choice. It smells like real roses - nothing synthetic smelling going on here. It takes me back to the 70s when I was very young and all my friends wore Tea Rose. It's very linear. If you like what you smell 2 minutes in then you will be happy with this because it doesn't develop into much else. All in all, it is a good rose fragrance for anyone seeking one.
I got this as a sample and will probably not buy it when I run out only because rose fragrances are not my thing.
I think this is one of the better rose fragrances on the market today. I have smelled some rose fragrances (eg. Balenciaga Rosabotanica) that- to me- don't even smell like rose! (Even my husband agreed with me on that one.) Chloe Roses de Chloe smells like a clean scent; and you will definitely catch a whiff of rose at random times throughout the day while you are wearing this. If you like roses, this is truly lovely! I am a sucker for florals, and rose is at the top of my list. The only scent that I know of that comes close to Chloe RdC is Cartier's Eau de Cartier Goutte de Rose. I own both, and from my experience, Chloe edges out Cartier by a nose. I find Chloe's rose fragrance to be slightly stronger- but not "stronger" in a harsh way- but stronger in that clean, long-lasting, rosy, "I-got-my-money's-worth" kind of way.
I only smelled this in a magazine insert, but...
I'm not a particular fan of rose, but this is very nice. It's very subtle and just smells good, for want of a better word.
I don't immediately think "roses", but every so often I think of roses when smelling this. I wouldn't pick "ROSES" as the smell if I didn't know the name.
It's just a nice, subtle smell. Not old-ladyish. Light, with no off-putting notes at all.
"Gentle and graceful, the new fragrance tries to capture a walk down the Parisian rose gardens. It includes fresh notes of bergamot at the beginning of the composition, developing into essence of damask rose accompanied by magnolia that gives a modern touch. After that, white musk and amber linger on your skin."
Would I buy this again? Maybe. It smells so nice at first spritz...like a bouquet of fresh, green-stemmed roses. But the scent muddies a bit after a while and does not wear long. I may give it another shot.
I really LOVE Roses de Chloe EDT, which is rather strange, since I didn't like the 2007 original Chloe at all. I'm also not normally a fan of light, fresh, or floral fragrances -- I'm generally an oriental/gourmand/wood/vanilla/musk girl -- my favorite perfumes usually containing wood, vanilla, and musk.
I sniffed a double scent strip recently in a magazine -- original Chloe on 1/2 the strip (like OFF bug spray to me -- sharp & alcohol-ish -- not very rosy at all) -- and Rose de Chloe on the other 1/2 strip. Not at all alike, and the difference was like night & day IMHO.
Mmmm, I loved the Roses de Chloe strip -- I kept inhaling & inhaling it -- didn't want to stop -- it was immediately uplifting & gave me a rush of joy & happiness. I knew then that I really needed this Roses de Chloe in my collection, and I now have a bottle. Wore it today, and it just makes me feel good.
Here are its notes, per parfumo.net:
Top Notes: Bergamot
Heart Notes: Damascus rose, Magnolia
Base Notes: White musk, Amber
To me, it smells like a sweet, innocent, happy little pink rosebud. It reminds me of the movie Steel Magnolias, when Shelby (played by Julia Roberts) is getting ready for her wedding, insisting on the most delicate shade of pink -- blush -- for her nail polish.
This fragrance would have been a perfect one for Shelby to wear for her wedding -- it so matches the delicate pink theme ("blush" and "bashful" were her colors). So lightly, sweetly, innocently, freshly rose. To me, it's a joyful scent -- and also satisfying, calming, and comforting. Even though I usually don't like florals, there's something about a realistic rose fragrance that often just really hits the spot for me.
The rose is definitely present, *much* moreso than in original Chloe, which never struck me as particularly rosy and always gave me a headache. This one is definitely rose, fresh & light -- with a little bit of a candy note added. Not pointy & headache-inducing to me at all..
I bought the biggest 2.5oz bottle, which was very expensive, but I'm glad I did, because it is an EDT and rather light.
