In the Pink

One of my favourite Christmas presents was this Chloe perfume. I was in boots with my boyfriend waiting for him to buy a razor (yawn) and wandered around the perfume section spraying about a million different perfumes on my wrists. About half an hour later I got a waft of something that smelt amazing and realised that it was one of the many scents on my arms! Cue me dragging him and my mum round all the perfume counters trying to work out which one it was that I actually liked!

After much sniffing and a very confused nose I discovered it was Chloe, and I love it. It's a perfect subtle rose scent. Feminine but not too girly, like me (hah... I wish!)

What's your current scent?

I'd love to find a signature scent but I do love trying new fragrances!

Current favourites are actually pretty old saying that - YSL Parisienne (which I think is perfect for A/W) and Marc Jacobs Lola.

Happy 2012 Harriet!

Stunning bottle, I am a perfume fanatic and actually haven't smelt that one. I love Elie Saab everyone I met actually comments they like the fragrance when I wear it. Also Chanel chance is lovely. xx

Rachel Phipps said...

I'm a Miss Dior girl myself!

WeShop said...

Gorgeous bottle - so pretty. Happy New Year to you, hope it's a great one. xx

Hazzelnut said...

Love this perfume! My best friend wears it, but I'm more of a Coco Chanel girl :)

Kim Parslow said...

I love this fragrance, this and Miss Dior Cherie are beautiful, if it wasn't for the price tag I'd buy myself them all the time! x

My usual perfume is Bvlgari Pour Femme which I love, I've been using it for about 5 or 6 years now. I really want to try something new though, will have to check out this one next time I'm in Boots!

I bought it for my friend and she loves it :) xxx

I've had this perfume before as someone bought it for me, and yes, I'm aware of the irony, given that it it shares my name. I liked it, but all of a sudden it stopped smelling nice on my skin, which was a bit wierd. It's such a shame, because I think it's a really subtle scent that's also distinctive in its own way.

Happy New Year Harriet, here's to 2012.

Alice said...

Such a gorgeous bottle, I've never tried this one before but it sure does look like a beauty xxx

daisychain said...

I love the bottle for this! My current favourite scent is Diesel Fuel for Life...but I usually wear Daisy.

Hazel said...

I'm all out of scent at the moment! I was hoping for Shalimar (?) from OH for Christmas (I dropped enough hints) maybe I'll have to treat myself in the sales?... A girl needs a scent after all ;-)

confusedbrit said...

I actually dont have a current scent, which is tres poor of me....I'm hoping I find a male that wants to take me to dinner often and shower me with gifts of perfume and other lovely things. Either that or earn more money and be empowered and buy my own scents!

I do usually favour Mr Marc Jacobs' work but having been trotted around the boots perfume bit alot lately, I'm quite enjoying Victor and Rolf Flowerbomb and Valentina by Valentino...I also suspect I'd probably like Tresor Midnight Rose by Lancome also! Anything that is girly but not overly so is usually right up my street!

Lidiya said...

I absolutely adore Chloe, so gorgeous! I tend to have 3 signature scents: Lola by Marc Jacobs, Chloe and Miss Dior. I did have Chanel but now it is stupidly expensive so I have to do with using the testers :(

What an amazing present. Chloe is one of my favourite perfumes.
My current scent is Hugo Boss.

Elle Enchanted said...

I don't wear perfume much, I have a sensitive nose and many scents are too much for me. The title of your post reminded me of the song, Geek In the Pink. Which instantly made me play it, and laugh. :) My favorite perfume scent though, is my mum's favorite which my Grandma gave me a bottle of Estee Lauder's White Linen (or Pure White Linen). It has a nice airy smell to it. I also love tropical body sprays, and vanilla scents from Calgon or Bath &Body Works!

LilyLipstick said...

I love the bottle of this but I've never actually smelt it! My dad bought me Kenzo Flower for Christmas which I've liked for years but never actually owned (until now!). x

Farrah Abigaelle said...

That's a really pretty bottle and I love the photos! I think my mom had this perfume once or maybe it was chanel I'm not even sure haha

Chloe is such a lovely scent. I'm still faithful to the Byredo range: Pulp, Bal d'Afrique, Rose something. I like to change according to mood.

Wishing you a wonderful New Year, Harriet! xoxo

Danielle said...

I love this perfume! I bought it for my friend's birthday last year, I was very tempted to keep it for myself ;-). The bottle is gorgeous too which is always a plus! xx

Lindsey said...

Perfume is such a fantastic gift! This Christmas I switched from Vera Wang to Juicy Couture, and I keep catching a whiff of it and...ohhhhh, it is so nice. :)

Joy said...

love this perfume too! it smells wonderful!

Lauren//Fashionlooksnorth said...

I love that perfume! I alternate between that, Loverdose and Dior Addict 2 depending what mood I'm in x

Jess said...

Great story. I always give up with trying perfumes & end up with Daisy by Marc Jacobs. Everyone wears it now but oh well, Chloe is lovely, reminds me of my sister.

Pip said...

And it looks beautiful as well as smelling beautiful!

I love this perfume! I don't own it (yet!) but I absolutely love finding new perfumes too. Plus, perfume bottles all look so pretty together!

Josie said...

Thanks so much for your comment, it really helped me a lot! This perfume is so nice and the bottle is so pretty too xx

I have Coach Poppy; it doesn't make me choke like so many perfumes! But I use so little that I've had it for over a year and barely dented it. I do like me some Burberry Brit on occasion, if used in moderation since it's so strong.

Hi Harriet! I just found your blog and I love it! First of all, I love your About section. The line "Attempting to be a grown up and do grown up things"had me laughing out loud. That's the phase I'm at too in life. And blogging is also my escape from the mundane. Second, you layout and photos are just so pretty. Some of the best buttons I've ever seen. Needless to say I just started following you. Hope you can stop by, say hi and follow back if you feel compelled:) XO

Chloe is a lovely scent! It was actually my runner up when picking out a new one a few weeks ago after my old was gone. I ended up getting Kate Spade's "Twirl". I lurrrrve it.

RuBee said...

I've had this sat in a box for 2 years and I hardly wore it, but lately I've become obsessed with it and I wear it everyday!
