So I finally smelled the original Chloe fragrance after months of judging it by the bottle. Turns out that Chloe didn’t smell as bad as I thought it would have, but it still smelled too mature for my taste. I don’t like it, but it’s not bad.
Smelling Chloe gave me confidence to give Love Chloe a shot. For some reason, I thought this one would have been better than the original. Probably because I had experiences with smelling spinoff fragrances that ended up smelling better than the first. Jessica Simpson’s Fancy Nights is an example. I liked Fancy, but I loved Fancy Nights.
Have you ever smelled a fragrance and it was so unlikeable that you actually forgot how it smelled? That is how I felt about Love Chloe. I had to go back and smell this one because I completely forgot that it smelled like pickle juice.
Orange blossom and pickle juice-what a wonderful combination. This spinoff is definitely not better than the original. It has an annoying scent that is powdery, floral, and vinegary all in one. I just don’t like it.
It smells a little like Insolence. Have you have ever smelled that one? I don’t remember who it is by (probably Lancome) but I liked it a lot. Love Chloe would have smelled a lot like it has it not had the notes of pickle juice.
If I had to recommend one over the other, I would say to go for Chloe. Love Chole is too pickle-y. I think they did us wrong by even creating it. I give it 1 out of 5 stars.
