Chloe, Chloe, Chloe, where do we begin?
Launched in 2008, Chloe by Chloe was designed by leading perfumers Armandine Marie and Michel Almairac and was inspired by femininity.
Built using fruity and floral top notes including peony, lychee and freesia, the perfume feels instantly pretty. The fruitiness of the lychee comes through to add a slight tang before the floral heart really comes forward.
Rose, magnolia and lily of the valley work together to give it a subtle powdery scent that is matched well with the top notes, giving it a sophisticated, yet playful personality.
It ends with cedarwood, amber and honey; the amber adding a little more 'powder' but the honey adding a beautiful non-sickly sweetness as it's well-grounded by the cedarwood.
To describe Chloe? It makes us feel beautiful. It's feminine, chic, confident but not in your face and just generally makes us feel like powdering our noses and wearing pink!
It has a very familiar scent. For many of us this was the first time we had smelt it, yet it felt like we had all worn it or known someone who had done before. That is not to say that it smells like a copy, it just has a way of evoking memories. For Bryony, as soon she sprayed it, she was taken to her first ever class room, where the smell reminded her of her teacher.
It is comforting, warming and sensual while remaining youthful, girly and playful. A perfect balance.
Has anyone else tried Chloe? What do you think?
