Chloé Collection 2005
I decided to wear Chloé Collection 2005 today as I was curious as to how it smelled, I considered ordering this through Sephora when I had store credit, but decided instead on YSL Roses Enchantées.
The notes in this fragrance are:
Top: Pear, Passionfruit and Water Leaf
Middle: Wet Gardenia Mist and Hydroponic Tuberose
Bottom: Wet Woods, White Birch and Musk
As soon as I sprayed it, I could smell the pear right away. After a few seconds, it becomes a very aquatic fruity floral fragrance when the other notes open up. The tuberose is much heavier than the gardenia in this fragrance. So if you fear the tuberose - steer clear of this baby. For a few hours, it smells very sweet, like you're sucking on a pear lollipop.
After several hours the pear disappears and you are left with a mixture of the tuberose and gardenia which makes you think you're wearing Marc Jacobs! I can't compare this to Chloé as I really don't remember what it smells like. While I like it, I doubt that I would mourn an empty bottle or hunt down this fragrance after it's sold out.
It retails for $55/3.4 oz. and can be found at Sephora
