Fragrance L’Eau de Chloé or “the declaration of freedom” of the rose by Michel Almairac
While during the 2000s the pretty rose had lost its aura due to having been used too much for purposes not always very elegant, Michel Almairac was one of the few to have given it back its prestige of yesteryear by offering it a beautiful case named Chloe Signature. The rose was blooming again and the perfumer, who fell madly in love with the beautiful thorny plant, transported us to his world filled with contrasting facets by offering us Chloé perfumes, each more wonderful than the next.
With Eau de Chloé we will still discover, four years after the very first perfume, a new facet of the flower so loved by Michel Almairac. The rose is vegetal, crunchy but also very natural, as if the perfumer had managed to take us directly to his imaginary garden… Which is, basically, almost the case thanks to the manufacturing process of Eau de Chloe.
Indeed, Michel Almairac did not use the usual rose essence process for Eau de Chloé. He replaced the absolute with rose water from distillation so that it directly integrates the base of the perfume. Thus the water naturally contained in Eau de Chloe is replaced by rose water, which gives it a much more natural content than usual. A feat in modern perfumery which is nevertheless reminiscent of the manufacture of perfumes of yesteryear.
