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 OFF to me -- or Raid -- or Aqua Net -- or nail polish remover. Scratchy, shrill, thin, harsh, alcohol-ish, abrasive scent. Light & sharp, with little tiny prickly needles.
And it doesn't smell like roses to me at all -- I don't really get a fragrance, per se -- mostly just an insecticide or a cleaning agent chemically alcohol-ish spray. **cough cough**
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, crispness. Dainty & airy.
UPDATE January 2014: Just bought Roses de Chloe, and I like this MUCH better than oriignal. Roses de Chloe is fresh & dainty and smells like actual roses -- with a little bit of a fruit and/or candy note to keep it from being headache-inducing. A very pretty scent, and so much better than original -- they're like night & day to 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!
I have the roller ball of this because i wanted to try it but not commit to a full bottle. I didn't think i would like it but i do. It's light and not to sweet. It isn't overpowering either. It's just a beautiful fragrance that does last a good amount of time. I apply it to my pulse points and I get compliments which I wasn't sure if people would like this on me since I usually wear Happy or I go straight hippie and use a light musk oil. This is a good scent though for my now grown up boho look. it compliments my skin nicely.
It's sweet but not cloying that was my biggest fear. Luckily my fear was for nothing. It's a very innocent scent like for a young girl but has the femininity for a woman. I really like this and I do recommend it because it's not sickly sweet it's very good for daily wear or a date night. It's a good perfume and it surprised me in a good way. I will be thinking about the full size as I find it a good winter scent that isn't so overpowering.
A lovely, feminine and flirty scent. Really nice, wouldn't repurchase because I have lots of perfume to go through :)
What I find sexy about Chloe, is in the fact the dirty-comfort-slutty rose it has on my skin. Certain noses have smelled the fabric softener quality of this soft yet rather complex scent. The first spray is usually the strongest I get out of the pink peony and rose. The dry-down is my favorite part of the fragrance. Cedarwood slowly mixes in with my skin chemistry and performs some kind of chic-soft-rose smell. Comforting and yet unguarded. It's the leather jacket to your feminine frock underneath or your favorite tight sweater after an evening in with your significant other.
