/ˈnəʊmad/ Nomade • a person who does not stay long in the same place; a wanderer.
I don’t know what it is, but I keep on falling in love with the Chloé perfumes. First there was Love Story and then there was Absolu. Since March there’s Nomade, the newest kid on the perfume block. But she’s not here to stay; Nomade embodies the free spirited woman who wanders around the planet, leaving no trace but her perfume.
When I think of a nomad, my mind immediately goes to endless deserts, camels and vibrant colours of tents and spices. However, since the Sahara is not exactly a close location to shoot in, we went to our own little sandy location: the sea. Wanna come? ;-)

/ʃiːpr(ə)/ Chypre • a certain group of perfumes that use woody, herbal and fresh citrus-like scents. Nomade can definitely be described as chypre! Just check out the combined scents in this wonderful perfume:
Like all Chloé’s, the flowery scent is central. The heart notes of Nomade are freesia, jasmine, peach and rose. They certainly give that sweet and soft touch to this perfume! The top notes are the mirabelle plum (I can never get the movie “Perfume” out of my head thanks to this fruit), bergamot, lemon and oranges. If this ain’t the fresh citrus hints they speak of in a Chypre, I don’t know what is! We close it off with oak moss, amber wood, patchouli and white musk, which are the foundations aka the base notes.
I simply adore how this perfume develops on my skin. First, you get the special top notes where I think the mirabelle comes out on top. Next, the “pink heart” comes forward with all kinds of flowers… And it ends in a more dark, moody vibe with the oak moss and white musk. For me this is not only a special perfume; it’s in the way it develops that makes me think of a free spirit. Just think deeper about it; the perfume changes so drastically from fresh to sweet to just a little dramatic. It’s as if Nomade changes direction with the winds, it’s enormously versatile. It goes very well with the whole nomad story and vision they had for this campaign and product.
