From fragantica.com:.Kelly Caleche, luxurious fragrance by the house of Hermes dedicated to famous Grace Kelly and leather purse Kelly Hermes, as well as to the legendary evening perfume Caleche, was introduced last year.
Kelly Caleche was developed by Jean-Claude Ellena
from charming and gentle, bitterish rhapsodies of citruses and grapefruit which blend with floral notes full of nuances, with a characteristic powdery face of iris, with gourmand, yellow mimosa and rose. The perfect signature is added by a fine leather note. The last year’s edition was dedicated to young women, ladies and the bottle was signed by designer Philippe Mouquet.
After great success with the last year’s edition, a luxurious and very interesting edition for your purse was presented. It is shaped like a silver lock, available in limited number as 7,5 ml pure perfume extract, created of reconstructed aromas of the first perfume including jasmine, mimosa, tuberose and iris with benzoin and discrete accords of leather.
The new edition Hermes Kelly Caleche L`Eau de Parfum arrives as eau de parfum. Its flacon is shaped just like the EDT version, with a small, charming lock around the neck of the bottle, which symbolically connects all three editions.
The new variant was developed by renowned perfumer Jean-Claude Ellena
, who retained a floral-leather composition.
Kelly Caleche L`Eau de Parfum includes accords of Barenia calf leather, sheep leather, rose and violet, which are wrapped in an attractive vanilla veil. The new, luxurious edition is available from February 2009, in amount of 50 and100ml EDP.
My Review? As usual, I love using images rather than words, describing the feel rather than the notes itself.
Good thing I tried it on first before purchasing. It made me transform to a leather-clad grandma.
