For my 20th birthday my mom gifted me the Roses de Chloé perfume. As you might know already I’m a huge, huge, huge fan of Chloé perfumes so I’m always on the hunt for new ones to add to my collection. This version, Roses de Chloé has been on my wishlist for ages so I was more than excited to finally have it and be able to add it to my collection. Because I’m such a big fan of the Chloé fragrances I decided it might be fun to review it and let you guys know if this is as amazing as the other Chloé perfumes in my collection and why. So, if you’re interested in reading about that, make sure you continue reading!
Like all other Chloé perfumes, Roses de Chloé comes in a gorgeous, classic packaging. The box is white and pink and the bottle itself has the same shape as most other classic Chloé perfumes. It’s rectangular, it’s made out of ribbed glass and has a silver top part, a glass lid and a pink ribbon around the spray-part of the bottle. I really love the way it looks, it’s just so cute and girly. The only big downside to the packaging is that you really have to take care of the silver otherwise it will turn black a little bit. Another minor downside is the fact that the spray part of my bottle has come off and I can’t seem to get it back on it properly anymore which makes spraying this perfume quite difficult.
The Chloé perfumes come in different sizes: 30 ml, 50 ml and 75 ml. I have also seen 15 ml bottles occasionally. Just like all other Chloé perfumes I have, this is the 30 ml version. I’m not someone who uses the same perfume everyday, I like to switch up the perfume I use occasionally and therefore a 30 ml bottle will last me forever. Also, these Chloé perfumes are quite strong. One spray, maybe two, is enough for an entire day so 30 ml of perfume is more than enough for me.

Moving on to the perfume itself. I’m just going to cite what the Douglas website tells us about the fragrance notes since I have no clue how to describe it properly:
“Top note: bergamot
Middle/Heart note: damascena rose essence, magnolia
Base note: white musk, amber”
Overall this scent could be described as the signature Chloé scent combined with a hint of rosiness. I love the scent of roses and the signature Chloé scent is my absolute favourite, so this combination is just absolutely perfect for me. It’s fresh, it’s classy, it’s feminine and it’s rosy. I absolutely adore the way this perfume smells. I really, really do.
Even though the Chloé scents tend to be quite heavy in terms of how strong they are, it’s a very fresh scent and definitely wearable on a daily basis. It’s not too overwhelming if you’re not too enthusiastic when you’re spraying it on yourself but you can definitely make it more powerful by using a little more product.
What I love most about this scent is that it’s unique. Most rosy perfumes I’ve smelled so far are pretty basic and rather simple. However, this perfume is more special because of that signature Chloé scent that is mixed in with the rose scent. It’s so hard for me to describe, but it’s the most delicate, feminine yet classy perfume. It’s a little different from all of the other Chloé perfumes because the rosy scent is quite noticeable but that’s exactly what I like about it so much. I can clearly tell the difference between this perfume and my other Chloé’s and I do think that that’s very important since otherwise it would be a waste of money to get this as well.
Another thing I love about this perfume is that it lingers. It really lingers. I like to spray my perfume on my clothes because I feel like that way it lasts longer, and if you do that this perfume could last for days. Every morning when I pick up a shirt I have already worn once in combination with this perfume, I can still smell the gorgeous rosy scent of Roses de Chloé. How amazing is that?!
Overall I’m just really impressed by my new Roses de Chloé perfume and I really love having it. The scent is just incredible, it’s so unique, classy and elegant but also very feminine and kind of fresh. I love how little you need and therefore how long this bottle will last you and I also think it’s amazing how long this perfume lasts. It’s my new favourite!
That’s pretty much everything for today’s review. I hope you enjoyed reading it and be sure to let me know which perfume is your holy grail and what you think of Chloé perfumes!
