WHY???? Oh why do fragrance houses always taking a classic scent...completely trashing it...coming up with a new scent and INSIST on naming it by the classic scents name??? WHY??? It's NOT the SAME scent, so give it a new name! Well, they've done it again. I tried the "new" Chloe today. I expected the same classic rich floral with the mysterious spicy/woodsy undertones that I fell in love with in 1988 (gift after birth of first child)...what I got was some hideous scent that immediately made me think "fabric softener" (and that was BEFORE I read what the critic below stated) It's AWFUL! Not even close to the classic Chloe scent. Compare the notes used to make the classic and real Chloe with the ingredients in this cheap smelling Coty type imposter... Chloe (classic) Perfume for Women by Chloe A stunning original... Karl Lagerfeld created Chloe perfume for the design house in 1975. This feminine and rich tuberose floral fragrance blends the central note with daffodil, lily of the valley, coriander, jasmine, rose and honeysuckle over a warm base of sandalwood, amber, oak moss and fresh greens. A stunning original. -VS- The "New" but not real Chloe Chloe (new) Perfume for Women by Chloe Romantic, luxurious, elegant... Launched in 2008. A light but luscious scent, Chloe opens with pink peony, rose, and lychee; has a heart of lily of the valley, magnolia and velvet rose. A rich base is provided by warm cedarwood, amber, and honey rose. Review by NYT Scent Critic Chandler Burr ★ Do Not Inhale Not only is Chloé an uninteresting, clichéd floral (why are houses still launching saccharine, vaguely unidentifiable composite flowers?) it smells like a perfume masquerading as a fabric softener. Read more... As the critic said above...the "New" Chloe smells like fabric softener. I wanted this to be the original and thus only REAL Chloe perfume...the classic scent with some depth, some mystery behind the white floral...but, sadly, it isn't Where is the oak moss? The woody undertones? This is a sad effront to the real Chloe... Please, if you want to smell like this...save some $$$...rub yourself down with a fabric softener sheet. I'd give this imposter negative lippies if that were possible.
