Chloé, Love Story (2014) starts off sharp and clean (soapy really) but with feminine florals in the waiting. Although the neroli and orange blossom seem to be very present eventually, there’s also a note of jasmine from Madagascar (stephanotis). And, while I have never actually smelled stephanotis before if Love Story is a good representation then I’m going to look for it again.
Love Story is a little melancholy somehow, but also almost frighteningly beautiful. I say frightening because it gives the impression of being fragile and ephemeral, although the scent has decent longevity actually…
In any case, this is not just a fling my friends. Not even close. There are no sugary sweet notes or loud florals in this fragrance. Love Story, by Chloé is all about deep, abiding romance. And, it changes slightly in the drydown to a mellow, warm whisper of musky florals and wood – like a dew drenched forest. It’s a brilliant fragrance.
And today, I’ll just be reviewing one product – Tata Harper’s Beautifying Face Oil, but it’s a good one… In the last week I’ve been exhausted more days than I’d like to count and I’ve been using this oil (dense, slightly fragranced) frequently. Although I can’t say that it necessarily does wildly fantastic things with pores, or wrinkles, or anything of that sort, I can say that it does seem to make the skin a lot softer, and somehow less tired. Hmm… I wonder how. It may be a certain dewiness? A glow? I don’t know, but it works and I may consider purchasing it in a regular bottle. It’s actually one of the less expensive products in the Tata Harper line.
Then, there’s Lady Mary. Oh dear Lady Mary. Yes, I think your grandmother was right. You have cracked a bit. Maybe (Was she always like this?). I think she might be avoiding something by being mean (aging, being alone, etc. etc.).
But Edith. Dear Edith. I hope she likes being a mom and forms a nice, close, healthy relationship with Marigold. Poor Mrs. Drewe…
Yes, there was a lot of drama on last night’s Downton Abbey. And, as I’m writing this I’m a bit too sleepy to fully dissect each delicious morsel. So, if I don’t update this post soon then suffice to say that I love, love this show again (As if there was any real threat to my loyalty. I mention it every week on this blog and watch each episode at least twice.).
Until Wednesday. 🙂
