I have said yes to purchase again but actually it is a don't know. I am not a big perfume fan. Find most of them too strong or cloying. This caught my eye (or nose!) in Marks and Spencers new...

This is the first perfume review ever. I had to write about this perfume, because I am SO in love! I grew up in China where Calycanthus is planted in family's backyard. People have mentioned that...

Jasmine and I do not get along unfortunately in most cases, and this is no different. The slightly indolic nature of this (and other jasmine scents) does not make my brain feel good when I sniff....

after reading all these positive reviews I decided to order Calycanthus and made a huge mistake.I just got it today and tried and it just stinks like a cheap soap or body spray you would get at 99...

I love white florals, and this is a real beauty. I think a fan of Calycanthus would be a fan of Serge Lutens Un Lys and vice versa. Calycanthus is a fresh floral with soft jasmine…making it lush,...

I've never been into heavy floral perfumes (Dior Me, Dior Me Not is in my collection, but hardly ever used), but when my boy friend gave this to me as a gift I was very impressed. Very light and...

Floral, but not heavy or perfumey. I definitely get a lot of jasmine, but it's fresh rather than heady. It's not my cup of tea, but I can see this working on a floral girl. I think jasmine just...

A strangely alliterative name - Acca Kappa Calycanthus - is a magician's incantation of a fragrance. It's fresh and glorious and all that everyone here has written. Of the 50 or so samples I've...

I am not a floral lover at all but this is one beautiful fragrance. The only other floral that I could really claim to love is Antonia's Flowers Floret and the reason I love that so much is because...

This fragrance dries down to an almost exact copy of Chantecaille Le Jasmin. However, the top notes are not the same. The calycanthus starts off harsh and sharp(a bit similar to Do Son to my...

Truly a spring in the bottle type of scent. Calycanthus is a fresh, clean mix of white flowers. To me, it actually smells better than L'Artisan's most popular creation, as that one's too sharp and...

This is a gorgeous, clean floral. Very subtle but not boring. I read about the similarity to Un Lys; I like this better. Un Lys goes plasticky on me for some reason. I have a small sample of...

This is definitely similar to Un Lys(though not nearly as wonderful ::hugs Un Lys bottle:: ) and it also reminds me of Iris Nobile. Which of the three smells best is all in the nostrils of the...

I am by no means a white flower person, so I definitely approached Calycanthus with some trepidation. No worries here however. This is an incredibly lush, sweet and pure scent winning enough to...

Upon applying this to my arm this morning, I immediately forgot about it, and decided to go for a run. Upon returning from a half hour of sweating up a storm, I collapsed in my front yard, face...

I love this scent. It is spring in a bottle. It is so fresh. I smell like a garden in Europe when I wear this. And you just cant beat the price.

One of my favorite SAs at Nordstrom introduced me to this divinely blended floral fragrance. A bit like Serge Lutens Un Lys, without the baked nutmeg notes. Fresh like Annick Goutal's Honeysuckle,...

This is a simple statement of beauty, a poignant white floral with a hint of crisp green and a lingering creamy drydown on the skin. If you like Keiko Mecheri Fleur d'Osmanthus, Chanel...
