Love, Chloe~ A Love Story
If you read my blog, you know that I fall in love with perfumes in the same way that Elizabeth Taylor fell in love with men.
Lately, I’ve been trying to be more faithful to my past flames, by trying to use up some of my old fragrances before splurging on a new bottle. But, shortly after the start of the new year I started a new love affair with the newest edition from the Chloé line of perfumes, appropriately called, Love, Chloé.
It started off innocent enough with me admiring the glamorous 70′s inspired ads. But, my interest started to peak when I realized I couldn’t find this fragrance in any of my local department stores…playing hard to get has always been a tactic I fall hard for.
Finally, while at Nordstrom, I got a whiff of the fragrance and it was love at first smell, but I didn’t quite understand why. Most of my fragrances fall into the white floral category with a few roses/violets mixed in. The two notes that I am most turned off by is anything musky or powdery and Love, Chloé screams both of these notes, but somehow in the most sophisticated, pretty, and somehow fresh way. I knew I couldn’t continue without it.
It didn’t take my husband long to take ear to some of my very obvious hints and on Valentine’s Day I was gifted with the Love, Chloé gift set from Nordstrom. Even with all the hints I was not expecting him to buy the fragrance for me…I had already been scoping out eBay for a deal, because this perfume is not on the cheap side (as if!), running $85 for a 1.7 oz bottle. So, imagine my surprise when not only did I get my beloved perfume, but I also got the tricked out gift set! I was in love…mostly with my husband, but also with my new perfume.
Even though I love perfume, I’m by no means a perfume expert. However, I do know what I like and I know what smells good. I really love finding fragrances that wake up my senses and make me feel a certain way. For me, Love, Chloé, makes me feel sophisticated, pretty, flirty, mysterious, and fresh all at the same time. I wear the fragrance almost everyday and have no problem wearing it to work or out for the evening.
If you think you might be smitten with the Love, Chloé fragrance, make sure to check it out and ask your local sales associate for a sample to take home (currently, Love, Chloé is only sold in upscale department stores or online) because you never know how the fragrance will develop on you (my love story could be your heartbreak). The notes in Love, Chloé include: orange blossom, pepper, hyacinth, iris, lilac, wisteria, heliotropine, musk, talc, rice powder.
If you’re interested in the gift set I received, it retailed for $110 at Nordstrom and included a full size (2.5 oz) bottle of the Love, Chloé perfume, a travel size bottle of the perfume (.17 oz), body lotion (3.4 oz), and a chic little leather makeup pouch (All this is the same price as the 2.5 oz bottle, and you get that in the gift set…you can’t go wrong with the set). All this far exceeded my expectations, but I know that I’m going to use every drop…and probably go back for more!
