I like this perfume because it's a very clean scent & can be appropriate for any occasion. It can come off really strong so 2 sprays are more then enough. I think it lasts about 3-4 hours on my skin. I'm still on the fence about this one.. I don't think its one of those head turning perfumes or anything .. just safe
Elegant and long lasting, I never get tired of it. The only problem is that everyone else is wearing it....!
This is one of my favorite scents. I get tons of compliments on this.
It stays on all day - it is fresh and floral without being too "old" (if that makes any sense).
I think it nice for both day and night.
My complaints: the silver top on the bottle tarnishes and sometimes the spray can be a bit intense - more of a shot rather than a mist.
Excellent staying power. Always get compliments on this one. A good, strong rose.
I have never been much of a floral/rose girl but for this perfume I tried to make an exception! . The scent reminds me of a luxurious expensive strong smelling soap. Problem for me is there is something quite sharp in the fragrance that gives me a headache after a few hours of wearing this. That sharpness stays in the drydown too. I wish this fragrance had a softer drydown. (stella EDP is a softer rose scent) Good thing I got a sample because I just cannot wear this too strong for me.
I have a perfume collection of over 50 perfumes and this is my favorite perfume in it! I love this more than flower bomb, chanel, Marc Jacobs or Dior! The smell is amazing! It's flowery but sophisticated! I smelt it in a magazine and had to have it! I think the bottle is pretty too! Overall, this is great quality and smells great to me!
Sorry, but this is like rose-scented Windex to me -- or rose-scented nail polish remover. Scratchy, shrill, thin, harsh, alcohol-ish, abrasive rose scent. Light & sharp, with little tiny prickly rose needles. I used to have a very similar reaction to YSL Paris -- too sharp & scratchy. I guess I just don't like light fresh rose perfumes.
I'm astonished by all the raves for Chloe EDP, esp by very young women. Chloe EDP gives me a headache. I once asked for it at Belk dept store, and the SA said they d/c'd it because it wasn't selling (neither does D&G Pour Femme, the new pink one, she said). So I guess neither of these is popular in my area.
UPDATE, Mother's Day 2013: I went out to dinner -- smelled Chloe EDP on an Asian waitress, and it suited her youthfulness & waiflike figure. I'm bumping it up a notch -- it smelled nice from a distance. I got a whiff of light, thin, crisp rose. Dainty & airy.
For a crisp, light, fresh rose perfume, I think I like Givenchy Very Irresistible better than Chloe EDP -- but my overall favorite rose perfume is Stella by Stella McCartney. It smells like wine & roses to me -- more "purple" (similar to the original Anna Sui) -- rich, deep, full, sweet, and delicious.
UPDATE 6/1/13: Wore Chloe EDP today. Instant headache -- had to take ibuprofen. After about 8 hours of drydown, it smelled nice, blended well into skin -- but for the first hours, it's just very sharp, prickly, & icepick-like headache-inducing ... for me.
In love with it. At first I thought that it's too strong, it only took me four years to be sure, that it's the perfume I want to wear ;)
I find this to be a classic/ classy scent. It is a pure, clean, fresh and soapy scent, with a hint of green - I love that kind of perfume -, very settle and easy to wear on a daily basis. It reminds me of clean laundry and sometimes roses.
My new favorite perfume!
A lot of perfumes I've tried smells nice at first but dries down to something nasty. This one doesn't! The smell is just as nice just after spraying and several hours later. On my skin is turns to a warm comfortable rose, with a hint of something (wood? cedar?), lovely!
Definitely something I will repurchase when my bottle is finished. And what a beautiful bottle!
