Chloe Eau de Toilette
The first of Chloe's eponymous scents was an Eau de Parfum, introduced in 2008. This variety is a rose-centered fragrance intended to capture the flower as it would smell in the midday sun, the magnolia, honey, and cedar-tinged scent was an instant hit.
Eau de Parfum Intense, which expressed the rose in its fully opened state at dusk, arrived last summer. It's a beautiful version of rose, intense, mysterious, and extremely sensual. Now, Chloe launches yet another variety; its Eau de Toilette, a “free and fresh” variation on the original scent that utilizes green notes like iris and freesia for an effect described as "kissed-by-morning-dew." The rose of this variety sparkles with simplicity and joy. Hints of mandarin orange zest shine through in the head notes. Freesia and watermelon enhance the initial impression, and touches of sandalwood and fresh iris complete the base. Subtle elegance pervades every layer of this deliciously spry scent.
Chloe EDT is available in 1.7 oz and 2.5 oz bottles finished with an ivory ribbon. As this is an eau de toilette fragrance, it runs less than the edp and the intense versions at $65 and $85 respectively. Visit Sephora to shop the fragrance and for more information.
