I have to say, this is one of my favourite new beauty finds. Love, Chloé* is a fresh and feminine scent perfect for the office but strong enough to bring you into the night. Personally, I'm all about super feminine scents. As much as I love woodsy, ambery fragrances on men (well, the one man in my life) I don't feel as though I can wear them with any success. At the same time, my stomach turns at the smell of something super sugary (Prada Candy is about as sweet as I can go) and it can be difficult finding a floral that isn't too, well, flowery (Marc Jacobs Daisy is one of my favourites, but I fall in and out of love with it regularly).
Love, Chloé is what comes to mind when I think of a floral loving woman's "signature scent". It's easy on the nose, you can actually experience the different notes throughout the day instead of being bombarded with a blast of fragrance right off the bat, and it's priced pretty decently. Yes, it's more expensive than a no-name Target or Shoppers Drug Mart perfume, but it is Chloé and is lower priced than many other luxury fragrances.
Over the next couple of weeks, I'm going to share a couple more fragrance reviews with you. With fall arriving, I've felt it's time to introduce a new fragrance into my scent line up and love being able to share my trials (and errors!) with you here on my blog. I love my staple Chanel, but changing things up is always fun. Look out for a review on Calvin Klein Eternity Aqua, CK Shock for Her, Vera Wang Lovestruck Floral Rush, and perhaps a few others.
I'd like to thank Coty PR for being absolutely wonderful in sending me full sized samples and want you, my readers, to know I'll be happily gifting scents that just aren't "me" in a giveaway next month... if you want them! Let me know in a comment. :)
