The opening is a rich and smooth floral greeting: a delightful jasmine (Egyptian) in the foreground, soon joined by a lovely violet note. The latter is a rich green, the violet leaves are bright and more light-hearted than expected from a violet usually. An undertone of aldehydes adds just the rich amount of a sparkling touch.

The drydown adds a rose that is rather shy and withdrawn on me. More interested is a mimosa impression, and a transient whiff of orange blossom makes an appearance.

A bright drop of fresh beeswax develops and leads us into the base, where a heliotrope competent adds an aroma of almond croissants.

I get moderate sillage, very good projection and seven hours of longevity on my skin.

This flanker for spring evenings is of impressive quality in the first half of its development, exuding classy confidents combined with elegant youthfulness. The later part is less convincing and a bit then and anaemic at times. Clearly this flanker is much simpler, less complex and (nearly) a class below the original Calèche version, but nonetheless is has interesting creatures and is overall executed quite well. 3.25/5

A limited edition, this is a beautiful composition based on mimosa, rose, and jasmine with beeswax absolute and heliotrope. The mimosa's floral note is slightly green, lending a bit of freshness to this rather rich fragrance; the beeswax gives depth and a gently animalic touch, while the heliotrope contributes the gourmand redolence of almonds and cherry pie. It is definitely an opus of elegance and style, deep and reassuring. Ellena's genius for making a great deal of a minimal set of ingredients is amply evident here.
