Valentines’ Day came a tad bit early for me this year! My loving fiancé bought me a Roses De Chloé perfume as a pre-Valentines’ gift! I’m not really the type of person who loves using perfumes. I used to believe that a person’s natural scent is far better than any perfumes in the world. I only started using perfumes when we started dating because he was so into perfumes and I got caught along with it. You know how one’s interest can affect another after being together for some time? Well, that’s what happened to me. Since we realized that the both of us were planning to buy perfumes as Valentine’s gift for one another, we decided to exchange perfumes as a pre-Valentines gift.
He knew that the only perfume I really like is L’occitane‘s Cherry Blossom perfume, which also happens to be because he gave me a L’occitane Cherry Blossoms lotion the first time we went to Taiwan. So he brought me to a perfume store and asked me to choose which scent would suit me. I thought it would be easy at first. Boy, I was wrong! It took me an almost two hours to find one. I searched the internet for perfumes a few days before, so I had a list inside my head of which perfumes I would most probably like. But when I smelled each one of them, they were either too floral, too sweet or too strong. It was when I was about to give up when I found Roses De Chloé. I really tried to avoid the Chloé section and don’t ask why, but the salesman insisted and I eventually gave in. The smell was perfect and it was exactly what I wanted – a rose smell with an elegant scent! It wasn’t too strong, too sweet or too floral. The instant I smelled it, I knew it is the one for me. Yes, I hated Chloé for a reason and not because of their quality. But all of my reasoning evaporated into thin air.
At that time, all I could think of was, “This is it!”
And look at the bottle, it looks so adorable and sweet (like me!) with a pink ribbon around it. And pink is one of my favorite colors! Moreover, the gold plated metal with the word “Chloé” embossed in it is full of elegance. I didn’t have any second thought on this one –
