Chloe was presented in 1975 by the House of Karl Lagerfeld. It won the Fragrance Foundation Award for Packaging. The sculpted and frosted calla lily stopper and spherical glass bottle are wrapped in delicate peach and white print. The flacon was designed by Joe Messina.

So what does it smell like?  It is a floral fragrance made up of 178 oils and rare essences dominated by a tuberose top note and blended with rose, lily of the valley, jonquil, Cormoroan ylang ylang, coriander, Bulgarian rose, iris, sandalwood, honeysuckle, Grasse jasmine, and orange blossom.  On my skin, I could really smell the lily of the valley and jonquil notes of this, mixed in with jasmine and iris, very pretty fragrance. But on paper, it smells dated and like a musty old dried bouquet of  muguet and Bulgarian rose flowers that someone has left behind say at a funeral or wedding, your choice.

In 1992, a new Chloe scent appeared, Chloe Narcisse. It was created by IFF. Chloe Narcisse is a floral perfume dominated by daffodil. The perfume is very feminine, sweet, but with a bitter note. It is very intense, so be careful about the amount you use. The top notes include peach, pineapple, sweet orange blossom and delicate violet. The heart is made of gardenia, carnation, jasmine and rose. Cedar, sandalwood, vanilla and musk are in the base.

In 1995 another flanker came on the scene, Chloe Innocence, a Floral Green fragrance for women. The nose behind this fragrance is Nathalie Lorson. Top notes are bergamot and water hyacinth; middle notes are jasmine, violet, honeysuckle and rose; base notes are iris, cedar, vetiver and musk.

In 2005 there was a revival of Chloe in the form of a limited edition scent called Chloe Collection 2005. The fragrance is floral-fruity, for daily use. The main notes are: passion fruit, pear, tuberose, moist gardenia, tuberose, moist wood, birch, musk. Chloe Collection 2005 was created by Clement Gavarry and Carlos Benaim.

Launched in 2006, Chloe Fleur de Narcisse is the new Chloe revisitation dedicated to the delicate and feminine narcissus flower. Unlike the Chloe Narcisse, this fragrance is fresher. It gives out more of the narcissus blossom and less of the leaves. The bitter nuance is milder and the entire composition is balmy and luscious, gourmand even. The nose behind this fragrance is Anne Flipo.

After great success with Chloe and its successors, the house of Chloe is presenting a new collection of three fragrances which arrived on the market in February 2010. The collection was named Chloe Eau de Fleurs and it encompasses Neroli, Capucine and Lavande packed in elegant glass flacons with a silver stopper. They resemble luxurious edition Chloe Lisy from 2009.

Chloe Eau de Fleurs Capucine is the second fragrance of the Eau de Fleur collection. Its composition is based on green notes and its creator is Louis Turner. The fragrance arrives in a 100 ml EDT glass flacon. Colour of its fluid is olive-green.

Chloe Eau de Fleurs Lavande has a dark, aphrodisiac, deep and intoxicating composition. Perfumer of this edition is Domitille Bertier, and its liquid is colored in beige. Available as 100ml EDT. The nose behind this fragrance is Domitille Berthier.

Chloe Eau de Fleurs Neroli is fresh and crystal clean, with nostalgic solar notes. Its composition includes clary sage, amber, tonka and musk. Perfumer of this edition is Alionor Massenet. The fragrance is available as 100 ml in a flacon with bright yellow color of juice. The nose behind this fragrance is Alienor Massenet.

Years went by and again, Chloe was resurrected in 2008 and simply named Chloe. The new  eau de parfum by Chloe is quite a departure from the once-popular tuberose composition of the same name. A light and fresh yet seductively strong and self-possessed scent, the new. Its top notes are peony, lychee, freesia, its heart notes are magnolia, lily of the valley and rose, with base notes of Virginia cedar and amber. The fragrance is very versatile, it is intended for everyday use. Chloe Eau de Parfum was created by Amandine Marie and Michel Almairac.

Chloe Lisy is a fragrance presented in 2009 and created by two perfumers, Michel Almairac and Amandine Marie. The fragrance is a more powdery version of the original Chloe eau de Parfum edition, available as parfum in amount of 15 ml. Top notes feature pink peony, litchi and freesia, a heart adds magnolia, rose and lily of the valley, while a base incorporates cedar, honey and amber.

In 2009, Chloe Eau de parfum Intense was born, along with a floral bouquet of rose, includes also accords of pink pepper, sandalwood and tonka. It was presented in the same flacon s its antecedents and is decorated with a grey ribbon. .

Also in 2009, Chloe Eau de Toilette, was launched. It was created with a more luminous and airier version which awakens and delights with its notes of mandarin and sweet fruity-aquatic melon notes, the heart  blooms with freesia and rose supported with sandalwood and iris in a base. The flacon is shinier and lighter than its antecedent, decorated with a beige ribbon.

Again Chloe was presented in a new form,of Chloe, Chloe Love, was available on the market since 2010. Love is a feminine and sophisticated floral composition, described to be powdery and soft. Noses Louise Turner and Nathalie Gracia-Cetto are credited for blending notes of orange blossom, pink pepper, iris, lilac, wisteria, hyacinth, heliotrope, powdery musk, talc and rice.

The latest perfume to come out of the Design house of Chloe, welcomes the spring of 2011 with a new limited edition on the variation of Chloe Eau de Parfum fragrance from 2008. The new perfume is named Chloe Rose Edition, a delicate floral bouquet that celebrates the queen of all flowers – the rose. Fresh, spontaneous, and feminine, the composition focuses mostly on the heady bouquet of roses. This bouquet is complemented by floral notes of magnolia and lily of the valley and enhanced by the background of honeyed amber and cedar wood. The perfume comes in a refined glass bottle of soft creamy tones. The design is the same as the original, only this time decorated with a bright pink bow located on the neck of the bottle.
