I got a sample of this at Holts and it smells lovely. I'm not usually one for bright "sparkly" florals so it was a very pleasant suprise when the saleslady recommended it to me.
It's a rose floral but not particularly heavy on the rose note unlike other rose-centric fragrances. I would say it's a cheerful, light and airy sort of floral with decent staying power and isn't overpowering in the least. It's a younger fragrance but not the teenage type of sweetness that seems so popular these days.
The bottle is perfect - a transparent cube with a simple gold top. Very elegant but a bit on the expensive side: CDN $95 for 50 mL and $120 (or thereabouts, i forget) for the 75 mL.
This is a bright, sunny, soapy, prickly rose scent which seems to me the olfactory equivalent of the color yellow. I'd call it "Yellow Sunshine" if it were up to me, as it seems to light up the darkest corner of any room, with no potential for a bad trip. This is a fragrance that just seems to smile, easily and often. While some fragrances wallow in darkness, this one doesn't even flirt with it. More practically, it reminds me very strongly of "Paris", but without the fruitiness. No fruit notes to my nose, but something in there gives it exceptional tartness without being overtly citrus-y. It does not stay close to the skin but meanders about and will occasionally surprise you with a sudden gust every now and then, if applied liberally enough. Which I wouldn't recommend, actually. Because, in spite of being a manifestly winning, wearable fragrance (without being a typical fruity-floral, a positive thing in itself) it does have the potential to cross the line into dryer sheet territory if you put too much on. GREAT-smelling dryer sheet, but nevertheless, that utter lack of sulk can get a little relentless... spritz with caution. I think this should be popular and would be a great spring work scent for a positive-thinking working girl.
i cannot tell you enough how many compliments i get when i wear this. i love it so much.
It is not cheap but its a very pretty bottle and big enough to last at least six months. I def. recommend this one. Its dries down to a very nice scent that lasts all day on me.
This is a wonderful fragrance that doesn't need to be reapplied, it lasts all day and smells great!! Starts out very fresh and tangy and mildly flowery, not so much sharp headache flowery. Dries down to an ultra soft skin scent with musk and a whisper of flowers that linger on my skin well into the evening. I love it and it gets compliments!!. Plus, the bottle is so pretty it makes it even more beautiful and a great gift. I'm not sure if Chloe is supposed to smell like the original, which I can't remember what the original smells like. Anyway, the new Chloe is awesome!! original or not.
For a person who absolutely dislikes rose in perfumes, and gladly 'got-rid' of a full bottle of Stella Sheer 2007 (lemon, green apple, PEONY, ROSE, AMBER), I can just say that this Almairac's creation is gorgeous, smells clean, close to the skin and very raffinee, and beautifully complements Chloe clothing line which I just looove. The bottle is 10+
This is the complete opposite to what a normally wear but i have fallen in love. I had a spritz when i was shopping in Selfridges but wasn't overly keen but when i got back to my BF i took off my jacket and thought what's that gorgeous smell and it was the Chloe!
Once it had settled on me it was a really floraly, yet light musky smell. Not overwhelming but refreshing at the same time. The staying power is fantastic and i can smell it on myself throughout the day unlike other perfumes that don't stay on me for long.
I intend to use this for evening wear as i feel for myself it is too heavy for the daytime for me being younger and more fruity scents. But when i wear this scent i feel free, romantic and girly!
OMG this is so sweet great parfum I love the smell is really different from what I was expecting is really romantic almost floral but at the same time is really fresh great for mornings or evenings, the only thing I dont like is that you should get more from the price only 2.5oz i think they need to add more to it!!! bur I still love it....
This perfume is very nice. Reminds me of Stella, but has more depth. It is floral, but it doesn't smell overly sweet on me and is long lasting. I purchased the perfume and lotion. I also plan on getting the shower gel. I believe I could wear this fragrance all year long and this might become my signature scent.
I have had this perfume for a few months and I still love it! I can still smell it after my intense cardio class.
Very feminine like the clean smell of a garden full of flowers without being overly pretty/girly or noxious. The different notes all come together for a harmonious blend.
UPDATE: I'm at my 4th bottle!!
I am a fan of Stella, and this fragrance is certainly reminiscent of that. There is a very fresh rose and a nice underlying amberiness, very similar to Stella. However, there is also a soapy note in here that I am not too keen on. Another reviewer described the smell as 'drier sheets' and I have to agree. On a tester card I found it quite pleasant, but in my skin the soapiness just blooms and blooms until I feel like I'm walking around in a cloud of clean laundry smell.
I have given this 3 lippies, a middle-of-the-road rating, because that's exactly how I feel about it. I don't love it, but I don't hate it. It's not quite right with my skin chemistry but even if it was I don't know if I'd love it enough to buy it. The bottle is very pretty though!
