The EDP comes packaged in the most luxurious blue box with a blue and white striped ribbon which adds such a sweet touch. Inside the box, I just love how the bold blue and white strip theme carry through and think these fragrances make the most incredible gifts! The fragrance bottles are also beautiful too and the mix of blue and gold make them look sophisticated and luxurious.

Chloé Signature EDP For Christmas

Chloe Perfume Gift Ideas

Chloe Perfume Gift Ideas

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.

Fragrance Direct Gift Ideas 2017

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.

Chloe Perfume for Christmas

Top Notes: Peony, Freesia, Litchi

Heart Notes: Rose, Lily of the Valley, Caribbean Magnolia

Base Notes: Amber, Virginia Cedar

Christmas Gifting with Fragrance Direct

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?

This Signature Chloe EDP is available from Fragrance Direct in varying sizes and you can also get it as part of a gift set.

Updating My Perfume Collection

Accessorize Lovelily Perfume-

I don’t actually own too many perfumes, I try to keep my collection small and actually use them before they pass their best. Fragrance can quite often be very expensive and often that can lead you to only using them sparingly or for special occasions. I like to use my perfumes every day and so it is nice when you can have a nice mix of good quality affordable options as well as more luxe options too.

I want to introduce you to, two affordable scents from two very well known high street shops, both perfumes have slotted well into my collection and have been seeing a lot of use!

Accessorize Lovelily Fragrance

Affordable Fragrance Monsoon Rose Gold

Accessorize Love Lily 

I used to use Accessorize makeup all the time and always loved the fun, feminine packaging, so I was excited to try their signature scent. This Love Lily fragrance would make a lovely everyday scent, it is nicely subtle and settles to wear for quite a few hours before the need to reapply. It is incredible value for money and the bottle is beautiful.

The perfume comes in a pretty hexagonal bottle, it is quite weighty and is finished with a pink floral stopper. Out of the two perfumes, this does have more of a youthful feel, I think it is because the scent is fruity and sweet. It features notes of raspberry, orange, jasmine and sweet vanilla.

If you enjoy scents that are juicy, fresh and fairly sweet you need to add this to your collection. Don’t think this is going to be sickly sweet because it is not at all, the zesty fruit and floral jasmine help to give it a twist.

Beautiful Affordable Perfume

Monsoon Rose Gold Fragrance

Monsoon Rose Gold

The Monsoon Rose Gold is very different from the Accessorize Love Lily. The bottle is more understated and elegant and the scent is sophisticated and sexy. That is how I have justified keeping both – this one makes a beautiful evening scent. So I now have new scents for both day & night.

What I like about the Rose Gold fragrance is that it has more of a warm, sexy scent and neroli and musk are two of my favourite notes. They add a masculine feel. These notes work so well alongside the rose, lemon and vanilla which give it that zesty, sweet twist.

  • Top notes of sparkling lemon, soft fruit and ozonic scents
  • Heart notes of velvety rose, tuberose, neroli and cyclamen
  • Base notes of Eastern woods, vanilla, mosses, musk and balsamic amber

Once it has settled down it smells beautiful, not too heavy but it lasts well on me. I can still smell it on my scarf 4 days after I’d sprayed it.

Both scents are affordable are very pretty. They’re very different in terms of scent and I do feel like the Accessorize Love Lily would be perfect for late teens early 20’s. The Monsoon Rose Gold has a slightly more romantic, sophisticated feel but that being said I have enjoyed them both.

Perfume is down to personal taste & I always recommend trying them out for yourself. So if you get chance to pop into a Monsoon or Accessorize store give them a whirl and let me know your thoughts.

Monsoon Rose Gold is £24 for 30ml, or £35 for 100ml

Accessorize Love Lily is £19 for 74ml
