Yay! Yayyyyy!!!!! Calyx has found a new home. Hearts sunk when this so-fresh green floral - which we think of as 'spring in a bottle' - disappeared with the Prescriptives brand. Then it popped up again somewhere else in the Lauder empire - but now, here it is at Clinique. And it ain't going anywhere.
Calyx just doesn't smell like anything else. Created by legendary 'nose' Sofia Grojsman,it opens with a great whoosh of grapefruit, before introducing the floral elements: freesia, muguet, rose, jasmine and lily. It's clean, delicious - and just so uplifting.
After it's been on the skin a while, you get little puffs of woodsiness (a bit of vetiver, sandalwood, plus oakmoss) - but Calyx's real allure is that its lush dewiness keeps it refreshing, from first spritz through till you shower and start over.
So: welcome home, Calyx. We're glad to see you back!
