Unfortunately now discontinued. It goes for big money on ebay too. And yes this is a Sheldrake, upon release Space NK where very proud he had created for them and advertised the fact.
Opens with a blast of aldehyde which then settles into a classic feminine chypre. Melodrama does smell like a bygone classic which fragrance houses don't make anymore. Shame on the other houses more interested in pumping out celeb fragrances.
For those who love chypres you really need to hunt down Melodrama and try. The reason for its early discontinuation? The younger modern market does not realize nor understand what a classic chypre should be. Their loss.
