Miranda Priestly may balk at the sight of freesias (she might be close, but nobody’s perfect), but the fresh, floral scent gently lingers in Chloé’s new perfume, . The luxury label’s latest addition to its fragrance collection is a departure from its traditionally rosy, powdery, romantic scents. Instead, Nomade takes a more adventurous approach that calls to mind lush forests and a wandering spirit.
The scent is a floral cyphre, which means it starts out citrus-y before drying down into a more earthy scent, after the fragrance settles into the skin (about 30 minutes). The intense, fresh oakmoss mingles with plum notes to create a complex, pastoral scent.
The comes in a minimalist translucent bottle looks like the label’s half-moon-shaped Drew shoulder bag that was virtually everywhere in 2015. Topped with a gold cap and a blush suede ribbon, the new perfume is poised to become a favorite in anyone’s perfume wardrobe.
Ariane Labed, the Athens-born French actress (The Lobster, Assassin’s Creed) fronts the campaign, and has said the perfume is perfect for a free-spirited, adventurous woman. The label’s Parisian founder, Gaby Aghion, has said “my colors come from Egypt,” where she was born in Alexandra. Nomade evokes the traveling spirit of a woman who is always in search of liberation.
Nomade will be available at February 8 and everywhere in March.
