August Faves: Chloé Eau de Parfum

Wow. Can you believe that its already September 1st? This Summer has really flown by for me. I am sad that Summer is coming to an end, but I am also very very excited for Fall! I have already picked up a few essential pieces for Fall that I can’t wait to do a post about. There was also some awesome sales going on recently at Bloomingdales and Piperlime, so I will post what I order once they are delivered. While I am waiting for my packages I know that I have one key item that will take me from Summer into Fall……..my Chloé Eau de Parfum!!

I have been coveting this perfume ever since it came out in 2008, but I already had too many perfumes at the time to purchase another one. I was really in love with Chloé bags then and I especially liked the simple and sweet design of the new Chloé bottle. After smelling the sample in a magazine, I knew that I would love it! Well skip forward to July 2010 and I finally ran out of my favorite perfumes, I decided to make a change and take a chance on this one. I even went to my local department store, which surprisingly carried Chloé (FINALLY!) and tested it. I even wore it for a whole day to see how long it would lasts and if it would still smell as nice after it mixed with my body chemistry. Well luckily for me, it did! The Chloé Eau de Parfum is a very light and floral scent. It is sweet, but not overwhelming at the same time. A perfect scent that lasts all day.

This is from the Sephora.com:

Top notes of pink peony, freesia, and lychee embody subtle freshness. At the heart, midnotes of magnolia flower, lily of the valley, and rose rise to sublimated femininity. A base of velvety elegance comes to fruition through cedarwood, amber, and honey.

I usually gravitate towards very light floral scents and this one is exactly that. And how perfect is this? One of my favorite flowers are peonies and I love Lychee (especially Lychee cocktails)! Others that I have used in the past are Dior Addict 2, Gucci Envy Me, and Juicy Couture, just so you can have a reference. One of my all time favorite fragrance was Burberry, but sadly they don’t make it anymore.

I purchased the fragrance from Sephora.com. It was very fast service and I also got free shipping. What I found most helpful was reading the comments and reviews that other customers wrote. They even had a special gift with purchase going on so it was a done deal! The gift set included a mini Chloé Eau de Parfum, 1 oz Perfumed Body Lotion, and a makeup bag. For some reason I thought that the Body Lotion and Eau de Parfum would be larger. Maybe because the picture made it look like Body Lotion is almost as big as the makeup bag. I knew that 1 oz is very small, but the picture was a little deceiving. They are both very very tiny, but I am not complaining. Free is free. The bag is cute. The top portion is a linen material and the base is a suede like material with the words Chloé stitched into it. The bottle itself is GORGEOUS in person. I absolutely love the shape of the bottle and the feel of the grooved glass. It is so sleek and elegant. And lastly to give it a feminine touch, it is topped off with a hand-tied beigey-pink ribbon. It was overall a great deal and a very good purchase! I absolutely LOVE it!

The other perfume I was debating on was Juicy’s Couture Couture. I really liked Juicy’s Couture Couture, but in the end I decided I loved Chloé even more. I might still pick up Juicy’s Couture Couture in a few months so that I can have a different smell to choose from. I also really love the crown top. I’m such a sucker for beautiful packaging! It’s like artwork to me. This fragrance is much stronger then the Chloé. It’s a lot deeper and richer, but still very nice. I think it would be nice for Fall, especially to out at night.

From Sephora.com:

This scent opens with a top of succulent pink grape accord frolicking in a field of natural orange flower and mandarin. A heart of blushed plum and honeysuckle flirts with bold star jasmine. At back, creamy sandalwood lazes with moist amber in a haze of rich vanilla.

I even picked up a roll-on bottle of Juicy Couture Couture to try out and am really loving how portable and convenient it is! It doesn’t provide a nice coverage as a simple spritz from the bottle, but it is nice to have if  you want a nice pick-me-up if your going straight from work to dinner or out. I usually put some on around my neck and on my wrists. I really wished they made this cute handy bottle for Chloé too! It is such a great way to try out a perfume without having to commit to big bottle. I have so many bottles of perfume that I got sick of after wearing it a few times.

I hope this post was fun and helpful for you!

Love,

K
