I sampled this a couple of weeks ago. I really liked it. I didn't have any room left to give it the skin test, but I'm going shopping for Moms and I plan to try it on my skin then. It's very lovely when you first spray it. I wasn't to sure about the dry down. I carried the strip for a while and noticed that after the dry down the cedar really takes over. This is what I didn't like about Elle. The cedar in Elle smells just like a hamster cage. It's not that bad in Chole, but that's why I need to give it the skin test. I know what you mean by Chloe giving you a sense of nostalgia in a perfume. It's new, yet it smells like a classic.
