Chloé has launched three new additions to the Atelier des Fleurs collection: Vanilla Planifolia, Papyrus and Tuberosa 1974.
Vanilla Planifolia ~ a spicy floral gourmand developed by perfumer Quentin Bisch, and inspired by the vanilla orchid.
Papyrus ~ a fresh green fragrance with dry and smoky woody accents, developed by perfumer Alexis Dadier, and inspired by a papyrus scroll decorated with hieroglyphics that his grandparents brought him from a trip to Egypt.
Tuberosa 1974 ~ a reissue of the original Chloé fragrance, introduced under Karl Lagerfeld in 1974.
Chloé Vanilla Planifolia, Papyrus and Tuberosa 1974 are available in 50 and 150 ml Eau de Parfum, and can be found at Galeries Lafayette in Paris.
Wish I could pop into Galeries Lafayette for a spritz of Tuberosa 1974! Have never smelled the original Chloe.
Ha, I will pop in with you
I had a bottle of original Chloe at some point. It was a potent floral, would be very surprised if they haven’t toned it down a bit.
“Reissue” does seem like the wrong word, because that suggests they’re relaunching as is, which is impossible for more than one reason. I’m curious to see how closely they hew to the original, which I remember vividly.
If they were going to reissue something, and were capable of doing it correctly, I wish they’d relaunch Chloe Narcisse, which was positively narcotic.
It was my word, not theirs, just to be clear. It is the word I generally use when brands bring back old fragrances.
Papyrus? You have my attention! And, yes to Tuberosa 1974, too.
I like papyrus too.
I would love to smell Tuberosa 1974 to see if it brings back memories. Too bad they are not putting it in their affordable line up.
Yes to affordable!
I love those–fluted? faceted? bottles. Not sure what that style of glass is called. I almost bought a bottle of Gucci Memoire for the bottle—with those caps on the Chloes, however, I’d have to actually like the juice.
I don’t know either, I think of them as ribbed or fluted bottles but I’m sure there’s a proper name.
