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).
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 Escentual.com!
