Ever since I snitched this (the smallest bottle!) off my mother's perfume tray in 1968, it has been my absolute favorite scent. It is wonderfully balanced, feminine, sophisticated, natural and pure. There has, almost literally, never been a time that I have worn it that someone has not made a positive comment about it. That covers a lot of years and a lot of use! It has been with me for every special occasion in my life. If I could afford it, I would most certainly wear it every day.
As a side note; I divide/classify my perfumes by seasons (Spring/Summer/Fall/Winter scents). Calandre is one of the very few that has no boundaries regarding time of year or occasion.
THE BEST OF THE BEST---rah!!!
This has been my favorite perfume for the last 30+ years. I have gotten so many compliments from young and old men. The scent is so subtle, that I forget I have it on, so when I get a compliment, I am surprised. It has been difficult to find for the last few years, so when I did find it, I would stock up. Now that I have found it online, for reasonable prices, I do not need to stalk the perfume outlets.
Calandre was, is and will be my scent for life!!!!
I can use anothers from time and time but, I always come back to it!!!!!
It's the best of the best fragrance ever smelled. I love it!!!!
Plus I got it for an incredible price at Fragrance net., what a combination.
Absolutely the sexiest scent ever produced. Subtle and never overpowering, the scent is the most mysterious and wonderful. When others approach me they always comment on how wonderful and inoffensive my scent is. Nothing produced since can hold a candle to this perfume. I've used later iterations of Rabanne fragrances and they just cannot compete with Calandre. It should be iconic of the brand and should be more accessible. That said, I'm so grateful that you still carry it. Please never stop!
