Losing its lustre
Chloe used to be a big hit with their Paddington bags in the 90s and now, the Paraty bags. Apart from the mini paraty which I think looks cute in bright colors, the rest of the bags don't really appeal to me though. Chloe leather is generally tough and heavy as compared to other brands with light leather (e.g Balenciaga) so if you're looking for a light bag, Chloe isn't for you. The strap of the paraty annoys me to no end as well because it isn't flexible and isn't to keep. Gets in the way most of the time. So if you're planning to buy the paraty for the convenience of the strap, please don't! It will only end up inconveniencing you. Their color palette tends to gravitate towards the neutral/mature side instead of bright colors which only come out seasonally so I find that a little boring.
Chloe also sells their famous perfume but I was never a fan of girly sweet/floral/powdery scents so I don't like it. The packaging is sweet, pink and will instantly make any dressing table look dressy and classy. It is no doubt a mainstream perfume but the reason why it became mainstream and popular is because many people actually like it so it will be relatively safe to make as a nice gift :)
Too mainstream a perfume
I first heard of Chloe when I was introduced to their line of perfumes. I noticed they used the same base notes in their perfume so each variant doesn't smell entirely too different from the others (which is a really smart way to induce recognition).
It's so obvious for me now that whenever someone wears Chloe and struts pass me, I'm immediately affirmed of the perfume brand. I love their signature scent at the beginning but am now relieved that I didn't purchase a bottle out of impulse. I mean, everyone is getting it, EVERYONE. It's becoming too mainstream a scent (if I could use it in this context), that it's no longer unique.
Girls should only have one signature scent which everyone associates them with. It wouldn't be too cool if people are starting to smell too alike, right?
