When I read zeynpd's review below, I was struck by the words salt, vegetal and parsley which is what I think I smelt in the opening of this fragrance (I have a manufacturers sample). I am also getting a weird sweet feeling in the dry down. Chalking it up to a skin chemistry fail, so I am not downgrading it below two lippies. Reminiscent slightly of something in Goutals Nuit de Hadrian that is not my cup of tea. Incidentally, I don't think they have notes in common other than a vegetal or fruit rind bitterness that somehow reacts with the other ingredients in a not happy way on my skin. I generally do not have a problem with mimosa, iris etc. Only the barest faintest ghost of leather. Moving on. Edit: it is starting to itch. am scrubbing this off; it is taking three thorough washings with unscented glycerine soap to remove.

I think this perfume has a lovely feminine quality to it, that is unfortunately linked forever with a masculine one. Both are really good but I wouldnt wear them together. It makes me sad. And confused.

I have been waiting a few weeks to write this review... I needed to make sure I had my mind made up about this scent. My mom first tried it at a duty free shop and I initially hated it, believing it to be too strong, leathery, and in-your-face; later that day, we went to a restaurant, and I caught a whiff of the most wonderful smell...guess what it was? sneaky, sneaky Kelly. It leaves a delicious trail behind: it can only be described as soft, womanly and sophisticated... you can seriously smell the tuberose in this. I got my own bottle and use it mostly for special occasions, but I end up giving in and using it more often (maybe twice a week, as a treat). Lasting power is amazing: spray at 8 AM, still in your clothes by 11 PM! Be warned: It's seriously addictive. I drove past the store several times over the last month, tempting myself to get a bigger stash, even though my current bottle is mostly full. But hey, at 50% off it's a pretty sweet deal, right? I finally gave in yesterday and bought the two-pack (two 50 ml bottles, $50). Hooked you say? Yes, yes indeed.

Wow, I really was not expecting to fall for this one when I ordered a sample from Luckyscent. I have been putting it on my wrist and obsessively smelling it ever since I got it. Like many mentioned, I don't get a strong leather from this, more like an interpretation of leather by Ellena. The opening is light, sparkling. After it settles a little, the iris and the leather are more present. Everything is balanced though and it doesn't smell too strongly feminine or masculine. It stays close to the skin on me but lasts a long time, albeit softly. To me this is sophisticated but not stuffy or old lady. Can wear to work or on the weekend. I am definitely going to look into swapping for or buying a full bottle.

I think this perfume is lovely and elegant yet enticing and sexy. Really feminine yet somewhat androgynous. Airy and light with a hint of sweet but then also musky and dark. It has a really amazing balance. I really love it. While I think the leather is prominent from the start to finish in this fragrance, I don't really recognize it as particularly leathery, it just blends so nicely with the florals and citrus that it becomes kind of a spicy, edgy floral. I love the subtle rose in this. It's so not typical cliche rose, it's done beautifully. I got a decant sample of this in a swap a few weeks ago and am in the process of swapping for the full size from the same person. So excited. I have only tried the EDT at this point and think the sillage and lasting power is great. I'm sure I'll try the EDP too at some point.

As a fragrance from Hermes, doesn't measure to the expectations. Just smells like your average, generic department store fragrance. I did the wrist test in the store and caused an itch on the area it was applied. It was still itchy even after hrs.

Upon the initial spray and first five minutes I get a lot of synthetic, alcoholy leather. It then goes through a phase of smelling like peppery water, but the drydown is quite nice, like spicy skin. Overall, it kind of reminds me of a barber shop. I don't mind the smell of barber shops--I just don't want to smell like one. This isn't really what I expected, and overall it's just okay, which is odd because I adore most Hermes fragrances.

I had feeling I was going to like this...and I do...a lot...so much I practically started shaking at the Nordstrom's counter. As soon as I took the top off the bottle, it seemed like JC Ellena had created a bespoke pefume for me. This smells exactly like I have always imagined my best self to! Kelly Caleche smells like me accepting a Nobel Prize on a good hair day: smart, pretty, in control and on top of the world!It's a soft floral leather, maybe a bit plasticky at the start when I sniff right at the spot I applied to, but I am happy to wait it out for ten minutes so that I can spend the rest of the day thinking I'm a Nobel laureate. It's also very, very Ellena -- although I haven't been into perfumes for long, there's an immediate similarity to Un Jardin sur le Toit (another favorite) that even I could pick out.

For being a supposed floral leather, I get absolutely no leather in Kelly Caleche at all. Sad, as leather is my favorite note. Or perhaps leather is there, but it's so scrubbed clean, sanitized, and doused with powdery florals that it might as well as not been there at all. Waited for the dry down but even then all I get is something chemical and flowery, like a blend of hand soap and floral-flavored tea. I guess Kelly's fine if you don't like leather in your leather scents. Tenacious scent though, 5 hours later and it's still going strong.
