See by Chloe Perfume: Review


See by Chloe has brought something new to Chloe perfumes.  As a whole, the brand produces classy, pleasing scents, but See by Chloe is really something special.  I don’t think I’ve ever received so many compliments on a perfume - including from complete strangers (the effect I was hoping for - and didn’t get - from Escentric Molecule).


My Verdict

From the bold red box to the heavy glass bird cage bottle, this scent is truly stylish, thankfully with equal quantities of substance.  See by Chloe is a soft floral, but not as we know it.  There are no sharp edges in this rich, creamy floral - always a winner for me - just a softness that verges on powdery. If I had to sum it up I’d describe this as sensual, sweetly feminine perfume which is simultaneously sophisticated and sexy.  I’d be equally happy wearing this to work as I would on a first date. It smells quite Summery to me, but that could just be because it IS Summer! I’m fickle like that…

The notes are Bergamot, Apple Blossom, Jasmine, Ylang-Ylang, Vanilla and Sandalwood. 

I’ve been wearing this daily since I received it (that never happens) and I’ve no intention of stopping any time soon…

Chloe has since brought out a new Rose scent, which I haven’t tried yet, though was tortured by a row of pretty vintage pink boxes the day they arrived in House of Fraser with no tester yet available - the poor staff were also gasping for a whiff! Keep an eye out for that one.

In the meantime, I’ve just spotted 15% off See by Chloe (& the full range) at!
