Morning has broken (the 3.0 zen version of a great classic)
I tested just a few days ago this scent which was on sale at one of my favourite drugstores of my town.
Well, when I was a little girl I remember that there was a famous perfume having the same name but I never smelled it and I haven't any memory of that vintage version.
What I recently smelled is a fresh-green and quite "zen" fragrance, light and clean like the morning dew on the grass. Pleasant, refreshing, perfect in the hottest days and particularly soft to be worn at the office or in crowded places. It's the typical morning scent to wear with a light and White cotton shirt.
But i was too curious to know how it was the original formula and here's to you the pyramid:
Top Notes- Apricot, Bergamot, Spearmint, Peach, Tagetes
Heart Notes- Cyclamen, Jasmine, Lily, Lily-of-the-valley, Melon, Rose
Base Notes -Raspberry, Moss, Musk, Cedar
The main characters of the new formula are the green notes and a soft and light Jasmine not so intoxicating but only suggested.I didn't smell the sandalwood at the base.
You can remark that many notes were different and maybe the reason of this change is in the new taste of the 3rd millenium people.
On my skin the new version isn't so longlasting and the sillage is quite weak, although a light "scent of good" remains for about an hour or two. ù
"Morning has broken" sang Cat Stevens and if you want to smell the scent of a morning in the countryside you could spray this fragrance. But it's a quite evanescent pleasure....

Tropical wave!
Calyx is a tropical, refreshing green perfume.When I spray it I get all the exotic fruits that they are listed and the dry down is something else.The base notes are coming up.A green wave, refreshing and very classy for Springtime and summer nights.Not sweet on me.
If you enjoy green and fruity perfumes this is the one.

Starts with bitter citrus (like grapefruit flesh and peel mixed together) then tropical fruit salad sprinkled with jasmine and neroli. Cute.
