Calyx begins with a sparkling fruit and citrus blend (Clinique 2013). The honeyed mango, guava and papaya are fresh and succulent. A bright, ebullient freesia is enshrined in a bouquet of other classic floral notes that are delicate without every being prim or cloying. A warm but pleasingly sharp base adds depth and character to this watery, elegant remake of the 1987 Calyx by Prescriptives.
Top notes: grapefruit, mandarin, passion fruit, mango, guava, green leaves and papaya. Middle notes: lily of the valley, freesia, neroli, lily, rose, marigold and jasmine. Base notes: oak moss, sandalwood, orris and vetiver.
