Calyx is back
This time last year, when Estee Lauder announced that it planned to close its Prescriptives business
at the end of 2009, perfumistas were panicking about the possible discontinuation of its star fragrace, Calyx. Lauder were quick to clarify that the fragrance would still be available, and true to its word, the scent has been re-issued.
“To me, it was the first fragrance that put nature and your imagination together,” says Sophia Chodosz Grojsman, Perfumer. “On one hand, it was based on citrus blossoms which were very intoxicating, but that green part, it was really drawn from a memory of that scent, an experience I had. And it was more than a little crazy, the way it was made. All these years later and I still meet young perfumers who tell me that Calyx is a big inspiration for the fragrances they make. I know it is. I can smell it.”
In the UK Calyx is now available at selected department stores nationwide.
