For the past week or two I’ve been testing out See by Chloe, the debut fragrance from the See by Chloe line (aka “Chloe’s little sister”). I was really excited about this perfume because as probably Chloe they make some of the most lovely, feminine scents in the most stunning bottles. I still have my Eau De Chloe which is seriously one of the most pretty bottles, don’t you think? So, as a fragrance addict, I was already eagerly awaiting See by Chloe in Singapore as I have been reading about their debut fragrance. Also – that bottle! I read that it was inspired by an antique bird cage, and I think you can definitely see that. As usual, Chloe has done a great job with their bottle design.
On to the scent. I was ready for a general “fresh” and floral scent just in time for Spring. However, See by Chloe – like all Chloe fragrances – has something a little more unique, a little more “old school”. While See by Chloe is indeed a very fresh, floral scent, there is a sharp bitterness to it – think a bitter nut thrown into a sea of bergamot and apple. It gives the freshness of bergamot that woody, sharpness which I love. This sharpness also gives a slight edge to the usual fresh scent which I really like; so instead of say, a field of flowers in Spring, it’s like the forest in Spring. Just lovely! Ylang Ylang and jasmine come into play once the top notes settle, making the scent still undeniably feminine and lovely (usually woody fragrances start to steer off to “masculine” territory, but not with See by Chloe).
Fresh, floral and a bit of edge – definitely one of my favorite releases this year! I love it. Have you tried See by Chloe yet? It is available right now, so run, don’t walk to TANGS Orchard or Vivocity, Takashimaya D.S., Robinsons or Isetan Scotts. In other words it’s everywhere! ;) A 50ml bottle is S$122. If you’re overseas, you can find the fragrance online at Macys or Amazon Beauty.
