Of Summer Days and Muted Elegance – Chloé Eau de Toilette Review

One of my favourite summer fragrances for this year is the new Chloé Eau de Toilette. Summer is here for good now, and the long, hot summer days make me long for flowy silhouettes, a tall refreshing drink and a spritz of a fresh fragrance that lasts. Read on to know what you can expect from this lovely fragrance.

Languorous summer days. Sultry summer nights. Silken shirts. A bouquet of white roses. The comfort of a hug from mom. The freshness of a gentle breeze. Raising a champagne toast at brunch on a lovely Sunday afternoon. Flipping through the pages of your favourite novel as you sit by the windowsill.
It’s these moods and more that this fragrance evokes for me. The Chloé Eau de Toilette is a light, pleasant and summery fragrance that is perfect for daytime wear.

Packaging: The Chloé Eau de Toilette comes in a cardboard box with the logo, and is a small glass spray bottle with a ribbon at the mouth. The perfume is a rose pink liquid.

My experience with Chloé Eau de Toilette

The Chloé Eau de Toilette is one of the loveliest daytime fragrances that are suitable for those who prefer their floral fragrances to be balanced with other notes like musk. I’m usually not into floral fragrances a lot – I prefer my scents musky and with vanilla or a bit of fruitiness. But I completely fell in love with this one because it’s such a summery, breezy and elegant fragrance. It’s especially refreshing in this searing summer heat.

The magnolia is what my nose first smells when I spritz it on and it leaves behind a citrusy, lingering scent with a hint of musk. It isn’t too overpowering unless you spray it like 8457656 times while at the same time it has a decent enough staying power of upto 6-7 hours. You can layer this fragrance with your regular body lotion or with the Chloé perfumed body lotion.

The scent of this perfume evokes memories and at once also seems so fresh and new. It’s lovely for daytime wear but I liked wearing it at night too. There’s just something about it which makes me wonder if it could even become my signature scent. I feel like I smell something new in it everytime I take it in. Perfect for a date night with the boy or a Sunday brunch with my girls.

Pros

  • Beautiful fragrance
  • Not too strong
  • Can be layered with your regular lotion etc and still doesn’t lose its scent

Cons

  • Can’t think of any – maybe the staying power is just about 5-6 hours.

Verdict: 4.5/5
