You know I very seldom write about perfumes but you know what, I want to try. I’m quite dull in my choices of perfume but when I do fall in love with one, boy do I fall head over heels.
The Chloé EDP is my latest acquisition. It’s not a new perfume by any means but the size of it is. It’s a limited edition 20ml and while it is definitely a lot more expensive in terms of price per ml compared to, say, a 100ml one, it’s an absolutely perfect size for me. If only all perfumes come in this small size too; I’ll be able to try a lot more fragrances without needing to splash out on a minimum of 30ml that I’ll most likely never finish.
The funny thing is, when this perfume was first launched, it didn’t stand out to me at all. In fact, I thought it had a very forgettable scent. If you asked me why I’m attracted to it this time (other than the novelty size), my answer is … beats the hell out of me.
The Chloé parfum is fresh, it’s floral, it’s beautiful. I don’t normally fall for floral notes but there’s something about this that brings me to a garden of roses. I’m not a fan of the Roses version of the Chloé perfume (too, er, rosy) but this one, this one I can imagine actually finishing. It’s soft, not heady and possibly not what you’d classify as a wintery fragrance but I’m never one to stick to seasonal scents anyway.
