Paris is famous for its love locks that adorn every stretch of bridge along the river bank; lovers come from all over the world to place their own inscribed padlock on a bridge and throw the key into the river, symbolising their everlasting commitment. So much has this been a tradition that the Parisian authorities have had to start reinforcing the metal bridges because of the excess weight, requesting the use of a selfie instead! The Chloe fragrance house is also the epitome of Parisian chic, themselves being inspired by the locks that represent the city. This January they launch a new scent within their repertoire, simply entitled ‘Love Story’ and clearly inspired by the love padlocks on the bridge of the Pont des Arts. With clean and fresh notes of neroli, orange blossom and stephanotis, the scent is delightfully chic with just a touch of something sexy.
If you’re already a fan of Chloe’s fragrances then you’ll no doubt love this new addition; it contains the same woody base notes as their first fragrance with a hint of something citrus. The scent is striking, unique and elegant, providing the wearer with a statement fragrance that leaves you feeling incredibly sophisticated; you can’t help but sniff yourself and breathe in the beautiful notes as they settle. The bottle is everything you’d expect from Chloe: subtle, understated, elegant, chic, glamorous and a touch vintage – it’s the perfect dressing table adornment and a great indulgent gift for yourself to start the new year as you mean to go on. After a season of heavier, mustier and richer scents, I for one can’t wait to start wearing lighter and more feminine alternatives… And Chloe’s Love Story fits the bill perfectly.
The Chloe ‘Love Story’ fragrance is available from Debenhams from 5th January 2015 and nationwide from 28th January 2015, priced from £47.00 for 30ml EDP.
