Everything old is new again . . . Back in the Eighties, Sophia Grojsman developed Calyx, left, for Prescriptives. It was a citrusy floral that was like nothing else on the market at the time. Over-the-top fragrances, such as Obsession and Poison, were in vogue to match the equally over-the-top Eighties' fashion.
"More is more" was the mantra. So Calyx was like, excuse the pun, a breath of fresh air. Prescriptives then became strictly available online only, and access to the beloved scent was limited. Clinique, an Estee Lauder sister brand to Prescriptives, have it now and, once again, it seems so different from all the candyfloss-y scents that are so popular this decade.
Clinique Calyx, €62. The scent is exclusive to Brown Thomas from January 10, for four weeks
