Perfume Review | Chloe Eau De Parfum

Perfumery is a symphony, it has a beginning, middle and an end.

I never thought that I would be writing a perfume review. It’s a simple thing but I’m really so happy about it. The fact that I can smell of the tones is just amazing to me. So for mother’s day I brought my mom to Sephora so she could pick out a fragrance, she prefers a light scent a toilette instead of a parfum. We we’re testing out the rollerball and travel size fragrance’s when I picked up the Chloe one and that was it, I was hooked.

So I’ve never done a fragrance review before though I do feel that it’s highly subjective. The fragrance works with your body chemistry so how it smells on me will differ from how it smells on you.

So I’m going to say how the perfume smells to me before writing how the brand describes the scent. To me the perfume smells like tobacco, well a romanticized version of tabacoo. I would say that it’s warm with maybe a hint of sweetness. It’s a bit sexy to me, but I don’t find it overbearing, it’s definitely suited to an evening out, date night type of event but I think you could get away with just a dab for daily wear.

This scent lasts a long time, it literally lasted through me taking a shower, I didn’t find that the scent changed at all from the initial smell. I’m not sure how they did that as perfumes tend to have a top, middle and base note. This one seems to keep the same notes throughout the wear time.

This is how the fragrance is described on the Sephora website.

Fragrance Family:

Floral

Scent Type:

Powdery Florals

Key Notes:

Peony, Rose, Honey, Cedarwood

The fragrance transfigures the mythic rose, infusing it with a resolutely urban spirit. Combined with magnolias and generous peonies, the rose becomes both honey-like and powdery; its petals blossom on the skin. Cheeky, free, and sophisticated, the scent breaks every boundary and vibrates with a woody tone—a signature rose that has become a legend.

I don’t smell any of that, no magnolias or rose not even the honey though that may be where the sweetness and warmth comes from. I’ll give them the woody tone, I think that’s where the tabacoo notes come from.

I plan on purchasing the small travel size version of this scent and if Sephora brings this back as a reward item I’ll grab it then as well.
