Since I am not a fan of the strong, musky scents that seem to be so popular this time of year (based on people who I tend to ride elevators with at work), I'm very excited for the lighter, spring florals to make their debut.
The one I am most excited about is L'Eau de Chloé. While we all know my nose is not known for having a sensitive palette, I'll give you my impressions as best I can.
The original Chloé contained Pink Peony, Freesia, Lychee, Magnolia Flower, Lilly of the Valley, Rose, Cedarwood, Amber and Honey, leaving behind a floral scent with a bit of a heavier bite. It's one of my favorites.
L'Eau de Chloé is a much lighter, more citrus-y scent, with grapefruit as one of its top notes. Made up of 22% natural rose water, this fragrance is much lighter and strikes me as much more of a greener scent. Touches of the original Chloé rose remain, but it's much airier than the original. Its mark after evaporation is not anywhere as heavy as the original. It also smells a bit of patchouli (which honestly is not normally my favorite) where the original scent leaves a trace of Rose as its mark. However, the patchouli is so light that it does not offend my delicate sensibilities the way stronger scents of patchouli tend to. Other notes in this fragrance include Cedrat, Peach, Violet, Rose Petals, Cedarwood and Amber.
L'Eau de Chloé is now available and retails for $40-85.
Sample sent for review. Should we ever be on a game show together, the original Chloé is my favorite scent to wear in cooler months.
