This is a review for the soie de parfum Caleche. This scent is an oldie but goody and is definitely considered a classic, retro or vintage. It is by far my favorite aldehyde fragrance but I guess...

I've always loved Caleche. It's uber sexy vampy and daring. This is a chypre (similar but different to EL Knowing, Clinique Elixir and Lavin's Arpege). But it's more soapy and sandalwood comes...
