Greenish Mimosa in a Perfumey Base--similar to Fashion Avenue
I have never really understood who or what Christiane Celle is all about. I picked up a sample set at a decanter a while back (before having renounced the use of unlicensed purveyors of perfume) for no better reason than that they seemed to be a niche house of enough significance to have a sample set dedicated to them. I have since learned that decanters put together n'importe quoi in their never-ending quest to live off the hard work of perfumers, siphoning their profits away by absconding with a big chunk of the wallet share of perfumistas today. But that's another story....

I later discovered that the Christiane Celle Calypso perfumes are regularly available from discounters for a fraction of the MSRP. Having tested AMBER, ROSE, and VIOLETTE and been pleased with what I sniffed, I picked up bottles of each for probably less than I paid for the original sample set. I remain mystified by this house because they really do produce good perfumes. So why are they sold for so little money? That is the question.

CALYPSO MIMOSA is another case in point. Upon donning this creation, I was reminded immediately of Bond no 9 FASHION AVENUE, the mimosa entry in that house's lineup. Like FASHION AVENUE, CALYPSO MIMOSA has a green edge to it and a perfumey quality which sets it off from, say, Demeter VINTAGE NATURALS 2009 MIMOSA. There is definitely more here than the powdery yellow mimosa which one would expect of a mimosa soliflore.

In a side-by-side comparison, I find that FASHION AVENUE is richer and more substantial than CALYPSO MIMOSA, but the latter is still very good, and it would be an excellent option for those for whom the prices of Bond no 9 perfumes are too high. CALYPSO MIMOSA is basically a somewhat quieter version of the shiny green mimosa of FASHION AVENUE. I like it, I do!
