I received Chloe See By Chloe as a sample after buying a perfume in Debenhams.
I had tried it before in store, but I try so many fragrances when I go shopping I forget what they smell like.
~ Bottle ~
Mine is just a 1.2ml sample, but this fragrance usually comes in a bottle with a rounded shaped base with ridged edges.
The fragrance inside is tinged yellow.
The lid of the fragrance is silver and cylindrical with 'See By Chloe' written around the bottom of the lid in red or pink lettering. There is a hinged ring on the top of the fragrance.
I like the bottle design. It is quite simple. The shape of it reminds me of a bird cage and it has the hinged ring on the top as well.
~ Price and availability ~
The fragrance is available to purchase in 30ml, 50ml and 75ml bottles.
It is an eau de parfum.
It is available in a 30ml bottle for £39.00 from Boots.
It is available in a 50ml bottle for £49.00 from Boots.
It is available in a 75ml bottle for £64.00 from Boots.
It is also available at Debenhams, Selfridges and most other department stores for similar prices.
~ Scent ~
The scent is described as irresistible, sparkling and sensual.
It has a slightly sharp floral note, which seems to dominate the fragrance, but otherwise it is light, fresh and clean.
The top notes are bergamot and apple blossom.
The heart notes are jasmine and ylang-ylang.
The base notes are soft vanilla - musky with additional sandalwood accords.
I am unsure which note the sharp floral is, possibly the ylang-ylang. It steals the show in this fragrance. It is pleasant, but I don't love it.
This is a floral scent, but I can't really detect any of the individual notes in it.
I have found that it lasts on my skin for around 6 hours, which I am pleased with.
I think it would appeal to more mature women. I think some younger women might find it too harsh for their tastes.
It does smell quite expensive.
~ Conclusion ~
This is a pleasant scent. It is very different to the other scents in my collection, but I don't think I will be buying a full size bottle of this fragrance. I much prefer the original Chloe eau de parfum.
This one is distinctive, but I am not excited by it.
I like the bottle that it comes in. I think it is a very simple, cute design.
I have found this fragrance fairly long lasting on my skin lasting around 6 hours before fading away, which isn't too bad.
I would recommend trying this before you buy it as for me it is nothing special and I don't think it is worth the price.
