I've been a Chloe devotee for about a year. Considering my attention span and the number of products that come across my desk, that is saying something. So when a Chloe fragrance hit the shelves a few weeks ago, they had me at hello.
But before I dive in, you should know that I don't often review perfume. I don't know a thing about it, besides if I like it or if I don't. People like my friend Gaia can tell Rosewood from Sandalwood at 50 paces. Personally, I couldn't tell them apart if my life depended on it. (Although once, in front of a new client, I was able to distinguish the scent of generic diet Pepsi from real diet Pepsi, by the scent alone. Sadly, my client was boasting that his generic was the perfect dupe and I haven't been asked to participate in food-related smell tests since.)
But, because I do really like it, I thought I would give it a try. So here goes. Love, Chloe is similar to its original namesake, but quite a bit more powdery and sexy. To me, this is a warm, personal and potentially intense scent. You know when you get really close to someone and the warmth of their body intermingles with their scent; only detectable when you are very close, usually right before you kiss? That is what Love, Chloe smells like to me. This scent also seems to smell better on skin than on a test strip. And too much of it is very intense. This is where the old adage, "spray, delay and walk away" comes into play.
So from people who know what they are talking about, Love, Chloe is made up of these notes:
Orange Blossom, Pink Pepper, Iris, Lilac, Hyacinth, Wisteria Blossom, Powdery Musks, Talc, Rice Powder.
I know that I really like it and that Loxy said it smells "hot". And he doesn't really notice these kinds of things...
