I get a really strong lily of the valley, mimosa, and piney-geranium scent. If that is what you are looking for I strongly recommend it for a nice delicate floral.

I was hoping for more full bodied rose, tuberose, and leather. I was disappointed.

My husband and I had a fairly modest wedding, but we spent a lot of money on the food and the cake. This should tell you something about our values. I took a similar approach to my dress. I bought something white (more or less) off the rack at a boutique. Then I splashed out a ridiculous amount of money on a great pair of shoes. They really are gorgeous--handmade, satin uppers, with these unbelievable soles. You can really see where they were sculpted and stitched. (They still hurt after 8 hours' standing in them, but pumps will do that). When I first opened it, the smell that came out of that box was not the usual industrial leather scent I'm used to smelling in my shoes. It was sharper, cleaner, and (looking back on it) probably custom.

I recognize that leather in Kelley Caléche. It surprised me when I first caught it, because I couldn't place it. I was busy trying to smell anything resembling rose in the extrait I have, and getting caught up in the freshness of the geranium and greenery. I feel like Ellena really let himself go a little crazy here, because these aren't his usual attenuated florals. This is, actually, downright exuberant for him. Everything smells lush and complete.

And then you get the leather, the very very expensive, clean leather. It smells a little saline and slightly clammy. It also smells like it would be the palest beige, with impeccable matching tiny stitches--the insole of a satin shoe, or the lining of a handbag, everything just so--tissues, lipstick, not much else. Then the fresh geranium (a chic but also modest flower) rejoins the leather, with a breath of peppery leaves, and the whole thing seems to weave and dance as you breathe it in.

I usually like my leathers down and dirty, so I'm as surprised as anyone that this appeals to me. Ellena's updates of classical models sometimes don't move me, but this one, in this formulation, smells delightful and vivacious. The extrait strength of this is currently available for not much money, and is well worth seeking out--a nice bit of luxury leather that won't make your feet hurt.

HERMES always knows how to make a Sophisticated Feminine fragrance yet Playful and Insouciant by injecting modern touches which put a youthful spin in your step.KELLY CALECHE is an eloquent but delicate scent that compliments your femininity at any age. Graceful,Feminine,Fresh,Unpredictable,Cute, Modern,Floral and Cheerful.

An opulent and fresh scent in the first by Grapefruit is sparkling and accord with Green Notes over a Soft and Lovely floral heart comprised Rose and Tuberose and a Woody and Clean base notes due Iris and especially Leather that makes a Great urban scent and you'll be very surprised as to many compliments you'll receive.

The leather really stands out in this fragrance.the best seasons for this EDT would be SPRING/SUMMER.It is suitable for DAYTIME use.I would recommend it to any Young Ladies looking to make a change or any man who wants their lady to smell beautiful.Absolutely new innovation.


Longevity?Good on my skin.

It's hard to find really great, inoffensive, go-everywhere fragrances. The ones that become your go-to scent. Kelly Caleche has the potential, yet it ended up being too 'meh' for me. I just don't care enough to put much effort into it. It actually came across on me first as a lightly floral green tea fragrance, which was kind of nice, but it needed to go somewhere from there. As it aged I was really looking for the soft leather, but it never kicked in with any distinction. If it had it would have added that extra level of interest I was looking for. I've tried it several times over the years, so I feel comfortable in concluding it doesn't blossom to its full capacity on my skin, and when you're talking fragrances like this, they really need to be all they can be on your skin.

Well ... I'm bored. I have tried this fragrance over and over again, fpr a couple of years, and I am still bored. To me, thiis is the olfactory interpretation of "inoffensive", to be euphemistic. It is okay, fresh, clean and so on, but it is nothing special at all, I don't even find it to smell luxurious.

I am really a huge admirer of the house of Hermès in many ways, but they do sell fragrances that are nothing but average. I have the same thing with Eau de Merveilles, which I like better, but it just does not last on me. Kelly Caleche does last and is still not impressing in the least.

However, if you like the "Jardin" series, you might like this, its sort of airy character. But personally, Mr Ellena, you can do better. Quite expensive to sniff a laundry detergent.
