As I get older I recognise the importance of quality over quantity and having a few treasured things. I extend that way of thinking to my Christmas shopping and have started to buy people one thoughtful, special gift, instead of lots of things that they either won’t use or want. This year I have asked my closest friends & family to let me know what they’d most like receive. I find that fragrance is one thing that most people (including myself) love to receive, there is something lovely about having your favourite perfume back in your life, and if you’re like me I find it hard to justify buying it for myself throughout the year so Christmas is that perfect excuse to give the gift of perfume.
One classic scent that is top of my Mum’s Christmas List is Chloé Signature EDP my Mum has worn this perfume for years and when I smell it on other people it instantly reminds me of her. I know she will be excited to find this under the tree this year.
Chloe EDP is a beautiful warm, floral, fresh scent which has a modern sophisticated feel to it. Its mix of floral, fruity and warming woody notes work so well layered together and they settle into a beautiful, easy to wear, everyday scent that has a touch of class about it. The notes of Rose are complemented so well by the sweetness of the Litchi so if you’re worried about this fragrance having a powdery floral scent, don’t be! It is the complete opposite.
The scent is strong but not at all overpowering and it has serious staying power. I would also say this is a perfume that works well during the day but is also really pretty as an evening scent, It is very versatile.
Top Notes: Peony, Freesia, Litchi
Heart Notes: Rose, Lily of the Valley, Caribbean Magnolia
Base Notes: Amber, Virginia Cedar
The bottle is such a classic design, quite a chunky, weighty glass bottle but very much timeless and pretty. I would say it’s quite understated. The simple ribbon detail gives it a delicate feminine feel. I might have to treat myself to a bottle for Christmas too, writing this review has reminded me just how much I love this fragrance too.
What fragrance is top of your Christmas List this year? Have you ever tried any of the Chloé scents?
