Dated yes, but far nicer than the new Chloe
The old Chloe is all about big florals, aldehydes and a touch of spice. It's concentrated and extremely old-fashioned, yet surprisingly enjoyable. I find many bottles of Chloe being sold in discount fragrance stores these days for next to nothing, which is a bit of a shame seeming that the new Chloe bears such a big price tag. I much prefer the old version over the new.
Chloe (1975) exudes more character and warmth. Dusty, old-fashioned tuberose, lilac and orange blossom take me straight back to a bygone era in the top notes. In the heart, a somewhat luxurious spiciness and coziness takes over, enveloping you in a cloud of richness.
Even though, in my early 20's, the new Chloe should be more my style, as it is for my friends, the original Chloe sits better on my skin. Dated, yes it most certainly is, but this is a classic in more ways than one.
Chloe has the tendency to be a sillage monster, so a light application is necessary. I don't know for how long Chloe will grace our stores, but I'm hoping it will stick around for at least a few more years.
