I am a huge fan of Chloe (2008) but grew up with the original Chloe because my mom went through multiples bottles of it. I really didn't enjoy the original Chloe (too overwhelmingly floral) so I was a bit skeptical when the 2008 version came out. Surprisingly, I loved it! I am on my 2nd bottle of Chloe now. I recently discovered there was a Chloe Intense released in 2009. I began a search for it but was unable to find it after looking in Sephora (both B&M store and online) & Nordstrom. I finally found it at a discount perfume store but they didn't have a tester & it sold for $120! I was shopping at Marshalls last week & to my delight, came across boxes of Chloe Intense EdP! They didn't have any testers, but priced at $39, I couldn't pass it up. Plus, they have a great return policy. The scent of the wrapping should have been a clear giveaway that this was going to be a spicy oriental-type scent. And yes, this ended up being horribly spicy on me, reminiscent of a cheap Avon "old lady" perfume. After a few hours of wear, I simply could not stand the scent anymore & ended up spritzing Chloe on top of it (to hold me over until I could shower thoroughly). I am bringing this back to Marshalls for a refund! Lovers of Chloe, beware. Chloe Intense is an entirely different fragrance! The fresh innocence that I loved about Chloe is totally lost here. Blech. It was awful.
