Love Chloe and our wedding anniversary

It was our 11th wedding anniversary last Friday, the 9th. I always get a vague sense of panic whenever a birthday, Christmas or an anniversary approaches in our household. After 11 years of marriage, I find it increasingly difficult to find a suitable present for my wife. In fairness, she has made it easier for me in recent years, as she loves knitting and has got into it in a big way. This means plenty of knitting-related ideas, but like with all things in life, one can go too far...

So this year I ended up buying my wife a bottle of Love Chloe. Now, perfumistas among you may thing this is a fairly boring and safe choice, but actually, I quite like Love Chloe. It reminds me a lot of the style of Chanel, with plenty of aldehydes, a slight aloofness of iris, and a buttery, almost creamy undertone that hints at smooth and supple leather. Plus, my wife loves it and has hinted for a while that it is on her radar.

Personally, I think I could have done a lot worse.


  1. Michael, happy anniversary! The fact that you bought your wife perfume is very romantic indeed. Yes, you could have done much worse - Love Chloe is...lovely. More so if it's on your wife's radar. Well done!

  2. Josephine - and who said romance is dead? ;-)

  3. Happy anniversary! Any desired perfume is a great gift. And a fact that you happen to like it too is an added bonus. I wish both of you many more happy gifts :)

  4. Undina thanks for the kind words. So far so good - my wife likes it and I'm a happy man...

  5. A belated happy anniversary!!!
