When I got the chance to sample Chloe’s new range of My Little Chloe perfumes, I think the one I was most excited about was the original Chloe scent. If you’ve been anywhere near the internet, you’ve probably read how popular the perfume is, and how it’s a number of people’s holy grail fragrance. To say I was intrigued was an understatement!
The premise of My Little Chloe, is that it is a miniature, 20ml version of the original scent, packaged in the most darling of teeny glass bottles, complete with hand tied ribbon. The Chloe scent is finished with a blush bow, and I think I fell for it before I even got a sniff!
Chloe described their eponymous scent as luxurious and feminine, and I would have to agree! When I first apply the perfume, I get a whoosh of florals – the top notes of freesia and peony make it feel incredibly pretty and special to wear. Then, as the scent matures, it deepens a little thanks to the magnolia and rose heart notes. The very base notes of amber and cedarwood never become overpowering, but instead really warm the fragrance up as the day goes on.
The lasting power of Chloe is really impressive – I’ve been using a few squirts in the morning, and it has been more than enough to last through the day. It’s one of the rare fragrances I’ve tried, that when I wake up in the morning, I can still smell it in my hair! It’s a great choice if you like a fragrance to carry you from day to night too!
The My Little Chloe bottles are a perfect choice, if, like me, you want to be able to freshen up as the day goes on. Their dinky size means I have been popping them into my makeup bag, and they fit into the sleekest of clutches. They are also something of a conversation starter! I can’t tell you the number of people who have commented on how adorable the bottles are, and they are usually already Chloe fans!
Chloe My Little Chloe is priced at £35.00 and is available here (UK) and here (US)
Whenever people talk about summer and exotic foreign travels, attention inevitably turns towards packing. I have to admit, I’m not one to travel light – I hate not having options, and I’m super fussy. What I also hate is having to decant all my lovely options and potions into ugly little plastic bottles. Maison Francis Kurkdjian, however has solved the problem of packing bulky fragrance bottles with his swoon-worthy Globe Trotter travel spray case which comes in either zinc or gold. I love the almost architectural detailing in them – can you imagine how chic they would look in your purse?
You can also choose whatever Maison Francis Kurkdjian fragrance which you want to nestle inside – I’m liking the sound of Aqua Universalis for a fresh, summer-time fragrance.
The cases cost $105 and are available here.
Mother’s Day is this Sunday (eek, where did March go?) so, at the moment I’m finalizing all the lovely goodies which are going into Mummy’s hamper. Alongside the bubbly and the other goodies is Estee Lauder’s gorgeous Modern Muse perfume.
As if the bottle, complete with bow spritz isn’t stunning enough, neither of us can get enough of the perfume inside. When I first spray it, the first note I can smell is a beautiful light floral. It’s so pretty and feminine, and it’s perfect for the start of spring. The floral notes remind me of sitting in a hot country at night, when the wind blows through the flowers and there is just the most perfect cloud of fragrance. Once the perfume warms up on the skin it gets deeper, with a hint of orange and then the woodier notes become stronger. It’s a subtle fragrance, and I don’t know anyone who wouldn’t be over the moon to receive a bottle!
The eau de parfum is priced at £44.00
