Roses de Chloé Eau de Toilette

I'm not that educated in the world of florals, but out of the few I can identify, roses are one. With good reason though, as roses are such a classic element of women's fragrances. They also happen to be quite polarizing- they're either too strong, too 'mature' or just too... you get the gist. Because of that I've never really found a rose scent that I enjoyed. That was before Roses de Chloé.

'Roses de Chloé is an invitation to grace. Luminous and subtle, it inspires and evokes a unique facet of the signature Chloé rose, capturing the spirit of the Chloé woman. The fragrance exudes an immediate and incredible freshness, derived from the top note bergamot. This sensation is gradually joined by a heart of Damascena rose essence, modernized with a magnolia accord. The trail on the skin is of white musk and amber, the signature base of the Chloé house.' - Chloé

While this scent is obviously rose based from first sniff, it's blended to be more than just rose. Complied of fresh cut roses, bergamot, rose essence, magnolia accord, white musk, and amber this scent is light and feminine. I find that this wears on me in two layers(as opposed to the standard top, middle and base notes)- I get the initial top notes of rose and the other florals and on a further dry down the slight warmth of the musk and amber begin to come through. For a lighter scent it still has great staying power and throw. I find it lingers nicely on my skin for the bulk of the day- about 6-8 hours- without re-application. 

Overall, this is a fabulous scent. If I hadn't tried it for myself, I likely would never have thought it was they type of scent for me, so it'd defiantly one worth sampling if you get the chance. Plus, that bottle. It's simple and elegant with it's sterling silver top dressed in a rose ribbon. It's a gorgeous addition to any vanity. Are you a fan of rose scents? Have you tried this one?
