When I visited America back in May, I headed into Sephora and bought one of their Sephora Favourites Prelude To A Kiss fragrance sampler sets. You can see it in my Sephora haul here. The kit is made up of a variety of different perfume samples and when you’ve chosen the one that you like the most, you can exchange it for a rollerball of that perfume. At the time, I chose the Viktor and Rolf Flowerbomb rollerball as I wanted to get it on the same day as I knew I wouldn’t be going back to Sephora before the end of my trip.
I continued to try out the other samples in the set while we were away in Barbados and I absolutely fell in love with one of the other perfumes; See By Chloe.
See By Chloe is unlike any scent in my collection because it is much lighter than any other perfume that I own. I’ve been looking for a lighter fragrance to wear during the day but I love my musk scents which tend to be quite deep and sensual smelling. This perfume actually has warm base notes of musk and vanilla but it is contrasted by top notes of bergamot and apple which give it a fruity, quite tart scent. The heart notes are jasmine and ylang which give the perfume a truly floral smell.
See By Chloe is very much a fruity floral fragrance that has a young, edgy spirit. I’d recommend it for those in their teens and twenties as a daytime scent. The scent isn’t particularly strong so it doesn’t last all day but I decant a little into my Travalo and I top up while I’m out and about. For me, this is strictly a daytime fragrance as I prefer a much heavier scent when I go out at night. This has quickly become one of my favourite scents in my collection because of its delicious, daytime appeal. I love it and will definitely repurchase it when it runs out. I think I’ll try to get the gift set next time so that I can layer up the scent with the body cream to encourage it to last longer. You can read my guide to layering fragrance here.
In America, you can buy this perfume from Sephora and in the UK it is available from Fragrance Direct, Selfridges, Click Fragrance, The Perfume Shop, Escentual and Boots (where theres an incredible money saving deal on right now!). There are several different sizes available as well as a gift set and complimentry products. I bought the 75ml size purely because I find the larger bottles more economical.
