Clique by Roble Review

If you’re a Bravo fan then you’ve probably heard of chef Roble, a creative, energetic chef based in Atlanta. Since so much about food revolves around smell Roble was inspired to launch his very first perfume called Clique. I recently met Roble at a beauty event and he gave me a sample of Clique to try out.

Company Description“Finding the perfect balance to incorporate scents from some of my favorite culinary works required a lot of fine-tuning and multiple trials. It started with the idea of developing an irresistible fragrance recipe that could maintain the freshness of a citrus cocktail on top with an alluring and sexy dessert base containing notes from one of my favorite dessert creations – “French Toast Crunch”.

Clique by Roble Review

At first, Clique is overly strong, however after about ten minutes it simmers down and is bearable. Clique is a highly floral fragrance in combinations of jasmine, violet, tuberose and iris. I know that it’s supposed to have touches of French Toast Crunch and citrus in it but I simply don’t smell them because the floral scents are so strong. There is a bit of spice as in hot not cinnamon) added to the florals though so I’m wondering if that’s what they’re aiming for in this fragrance.

One of the reasons that I never review fragrances is that they are incredibly personal. I go for clean, crisp, light fragrances and am in no way a fan of florals. Floral fragrances remind me of a grandmother and Clique is a fragrance that I would never pick up on my own but I can see someone else wear. It’s safe to say that I’m not a fan but if you like floral fragrances then be sure to check Clique out.

Clique is launching in the spring of 2014. The initial line will consist of a 50 ml/1.7 Fl. Oz. Eau de Toilette (EDT) spray and, to round of the menu, two body care products: a revitalizing Shower Gelee and rich, indulgent Body Butter.

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

    Very interesting notes with the French Toast and floral blend. I am with you, not a huge fan of floral perfumes. This one sounds very interesting! Great post

    I love floral fragrances (have done, all my life) and am nowhere near being a grandmother. ;)

    I like some floral fragrances, but tend to tread on the lighter side of the spectrum. Looks like this is not a fragrance I would personally enjoy, but as you said, it’s an individual thing.

    I like some floral, but they have to be fresh and light floral scents

    Fragrances are so hard to recommend and review. What smells good on one person won’t smell the same on another. I’m glad you were honest about your feelings!

    I agree. Perfumes are so subjective. I think the best way to review them from an unbiased perspective is to try and accurately call out the scent. I do love a good floral though!

    Wow, what a weird combination of scents. I can’t imagine mixing French toast with strong florals. Florals aren’t my thing either. But I think it’s interesting that a chef developed a fragrance. unique!
