I haven’t tried the Chloe perfumes, but I really appreciate how simply beautiful their bottles are. This one looked so much like them when I past it in Next I decided to give it a try, and it’s really quite a beautiful scent.
Basics: 100ml • Cruelty Free • £12 • Top notes of Green Mandarin and Cassis • Heart of Muguet and Jasmine • Base of Musk and Patchouli
You would think that for such a pink bottle it would smell like the perfume love-child of a candy shop and a florist shop. Spoiler, it doesn’t. When I first sprayed it the first image that sprang to mind was a feminine version of mens aftershave, the Musk is quite strong. After a minute or two though that smell settles down and you get this lovely subtle fresh floral smell.
It’s described on the Next website as a “fresh green floral fragrance with soft fruits and pink blooms”. The citrus isn’t very strong at all, it sits just under that smell of fresh flowers, and it’s only when you bury your nose against your wrist that you smell that faint citrusy scent.
For someone with such an aversion to pink I’d oddly fond of this perfume. The packaging is beautiful, the price and size extremely good value, and it is the perfect scent for almost any event.
