Welcome to The Entertaining House. We do hope you'll pour yourself a cup of tea or a glass of wine and linger for a while!

The Girl with The Pretty Perfume


As many of you know my latest addiction has been my morning Zumba class.  I try to go at least 3 times a week but am happiest when I am there 5 days a week. It's the one thing that keeps me in check both mentally and physically. I love the instructors... I love the women who dance along with me.

A couple of weeks ago I was not in my usual spot (all the way up front - I am blind without my glasses these days and need to be where I can see both the instructor and myself) and found myself standing next to a pretty girl I hadn't seen before. She was about my height, with pretty, thick blond hair pulled back into a neat ponytail. She danced well. She smelled well. In fact, she smelled incredible! Every time she came near me I inhaled the most magical scent. Red and dripping with sweat, I felt anything but pretty on that dance floor, but every time the girl with the blond ponytail came near, I couldn't help but to try to get a whiff!

At the end of class I approached The Girl with The Pretty Perfume and said that I hoped I wouldn't come across as sounding strange, but that she smelled absolutely amazing! She thanked me and told me that she was wearing Chloe perfume. We then introduced ourselves. Her name is Anna. Anna smells beautiful. All the time. Even after an hour of high impact, sweat inducing, aerobic dance!

The next couple of classes came and went and Anna smelled just as fresh, just as amazing after each class. I stood it until I could stand it no more. And then I did it. I broke down and got my own bottle!

Sephora says that Chloé captures the spirit of women and that the Chloé vision is not about one singular woman, but rather about the rich and varied personalities of all Chloé women. This fresh, smooth floral fragrance evokes sublime powdery rose. The effect is chic, comfortable, and entirely addictive.

Top notes of pink peony, freesia, and lychee embody subtle freshness. At the heart, midnotes of magnolia flower, lily of the valley, and rose rise to sublimated femininity. A base of velvety elegance comes to fruition through cedarwood, amber, and honey.

Inspired by the details in Chloé's fashion, the flacon's heavy but softly curved and grooved glass reflects femininity and strength. The plated-silver top is embossed with the Chloé mark and adorned with a hand-tied ribbon.

There's a reason why the classics are the classics and why there's staying power to the tried and true. This fresh, clean, classic scent will easily carry you through the day from morning meetings right through to your evening cocktails. 


The holidays are just around the corner, I'd add this to the top of my list!
