Eau de Reglisse Liquorice by Caron Fragrance Reviews

I had to try a sample of this today in Les Senteurs, Marylebone because of the odd name. I found it very special, beautifully blended so it's not easy to detect the ingredients. In my view, when one ingredient in a perfume dominates, it's a boring failure - a bit like drinking a wine just made of one type of grape. It's very good to know that a classic perfume as lovely as this can still be created as late as 2006 and that Caron can still do the magic. I leave the analysis to others...

What a pleasant surprise! On application, it smelled a bit cologney but the drydown is delightful. Luckily, the drydown is very linear. Fresh licorice complimented by lemony greenness of verbena and a hint of ginger. Patchouli and basil are very soft-spoken. They just emphasise the deliciousness.

I am a great fan of licorice and would warmly recommend this one to those who like Lolita Lempicka but find it a bit too heavy. Or people who want to smell really lovely but not like everyone else.

I was impressed by the longevity, the edt lasts about 5h on skin, much longer on clothes. The projection is perfect: noticeable but not overpowering.

I had a 2ml sample and I think I need a bottle for next summer. Or actually, this one makes me smile even in the middle of sleet storm so I think I need a bottle now!

I'm not getting any licorice or anise from this one. It goes on as a pure lemon scent, and then dries into a strange but not unpleasant light, grapey-leather. It's likeable, but not what I expected.

A fragrance I could live without, but a nice fresh fume for those who like colognes. VERY lemony top notes - more verbena or lemongrass than actual lemon - followed by fresh ginger root and a touch of licorice. The drydown is faint and milky. It lacks the creamy heart of most Caron fragrances, but the main issue for me is lack of longevity - I like a good 8-9 hours out of a fragrance, but this is more of a 1-2 hours frag. I will be giving much of my 100ml bottle to a friend who likes Batucada, as I think this will be right up his street, and I myself might wear it in spring or summer when I want to feel fresh but can't commit to an all-day fragrance.

My dear friend Puddley sent me a sample of this fume (thanks for that :-)). Although I sense the greatness of this perfume, I'm not sure yet whether I love it or not. At first, the strong citrus smell puts me off, in fact, I hate the first minutes of it on me. After some time, it develops into a totally different perfume. This one is a true cameleon-it changes from a strong citrus into a soft, sweet and woody liquorice coffee scent. I was in fact stunned that it was the same perfume! It is beautifully done,a great piece of perfume making art. Unfortunately, I'm still reluctant to spray it on because of the first strong lemon minutes-if only I could skip these, I would definitely wear it more!

Brilliant. Ginger and licorice, fresh and invigorating, with a slice of lemon. Reminds me a little of the ginger based margaritas they serve in Bryant Park, in Manhattan: fresh lime, muddled ginger, silver tequila, ginger liqueur, anise, and shake! Serve on ice. Yum! Great in summer, but holds up in fall. This is a smart, savvy, citified fragrance that is light on the licorice, slightly boozey, but sparkling. A fresh, citrusy ginger and anise, with a little depth from a tupelo honey.

Edit: Wearing this in Fall and winter, the patchouli, musk, sandalwood and vanilla become predominate. Drydown is close to the skin, but lasts a good six hours on me. A strong vanilla that is deep, dark and natural. Reminds me of Mexican vanilla liqueur. Again, I am getting a strong boozey element. A versatile, unisex fragrance.

Like many Caron perfumes this goes through various phases, which I like in particular. The one thing I can't figure out is where the smokiness is coming from! I would guess from the licorice, but, on my skin its faint but there and adds quite a lot of depth in the drydown.

I really love the rush of freshness with the lemon verbana in the beginning, and the drydown is where I get the the licorice the very faint smokiness, and the spices. This is like 2 perfumes in one!

I don't find this to be ordinary at all, and really very unusual for a Caron in particular! This to me is a 3 season scent. Maybe even 4 to add a ray of sunshine to the winter doldrums.

This is also quite unisex. Guys could wear this without issue.

Sillage is low after the initial hour or so, but everything can't be a sillage monster right? Longevity however, is really amazing for an EDT...8+ hours.

I agree with both swirfbanderilla and action on this...
A deep liquorice , lemon verbena and patchouli on me, where the verbena and musk together is creating an almost black velvet touch with the powdery freshness.
Warm and easy to wear.
Sexy as for night but subtle as for the day .
I also sense a tender coffee note, as the one in the gorgeous Belle en Rykiel. This would have been a full bottle if it lasted longer and was deeper
Thanks P in Luxembourg for my wonderful decant !

@puddley I LOVED that Decleor fragrance as well! I've been trying to find it; I think it was called Aromessence or Aromantics. It was definitely part of their Skin Care Aromatherapy line (which is why the name just didn't stand out). But I remember the elegant frosted, bulb-shaped bottle and the orange-yellow "juice." It was one of the most glorious scents I've ever worn! I now must find some...

Brilliant...natural...stunning...and a truly unisex scent to be adorned. My wife and I wore this together in October (each a full wearing) and made love to celebrate the day we got engaged years ago. It is one of the most elegant and beautiful creations of niche quality by the uncompromising house of Caron.

From the box/tube to the bottle & cap - and most importantly what is inside...this is artistry in perfumery.

The refinement and elegance (as Lolita said) create an olfactory experience that is to be enjoyed. This is not just fragrance. Swiftbanderilla said something great here as well.

Enjoy! No rating as this is sheer beauty - and, in this case, is in both the eye and nose of the beholder. Not just a gorgeous flacon...and not meant to be understood by all. This is why I love Caron!

I recently tested Hermès Hermessence BRIN DE REGLISSE, next to which Caron EAU DE REGLISSE seems *very* light on the licorice. This composition reminds me much more of the Lolita Lempicka limited edition EAU DU DESIR. I know, I know, obscurum per obscurius...

So what's it all about? A very lemony herbal cologne with a underlying light layer of licorice in an oriental base which becomes sweeter in the drydown--must be the vanilla, though this does not smell very vanilla-y, in the end. EAU DE REGLISSE is definitely more sweet than EAU DU DESIR, which is a super-refreshing herbal-lemon cologne.

I like EAU DE REGLISSE, but for what it is, I do think that EAU DU DESIR is quite a bit better, and if I were looking for all black licorice almost all of the time (with a touch of lavender...) I'd go for BRIN DE REGLISSE.

Absolute ginger and lemon verbena paradise! Reminds me of herbal teas. Liquorice isn't very distinctive on me - nothing reminds me of LL creations here. The best scent twin might be Guepard by Guepard - the same ginger blast, not too sweet, just refreshing, cool, a little spicy day frag. Be careful when spraying - one spray too much might give you (and those around you) headaches...

You know when you first encounter something wonderful like new music or a piece of art, or, in this case, a new fragrance, and you think "I've yearned for you"? You didn't know exactly what you wanted but others had missed the mark. That's my experience with this wonderful fragrance. The anise is soft and delicious, not overpowering. In fact, with the lemon verbena notes, I think this can match cool or warm weather. Love it.

One of the best fragrances from the house of Caron!
Rich and spicy.....its character reminds me of Opium very much. Can't wait for the weather to cool down so I can start wearing it!

I know I've reviewed this already but my replacement new bottle arrived today and I have to re-iterate just HOW MUCH I LOVE this fragrance.
Truly, if you love unusual and unexpected fragrances you should really try and sample this. The thing that stuns me so much is the way it morphs from one mood to another, some might say that means it has poor sillage but I disagree.
Upon application the lemon verbena is sharp and refreshing and leads for about twenty minutes, then it begins to soften and turn gingery and warm vanilla, still retaining a little citrus edge. Many hours later just the warmth remains. It's like it is a day to night fragrance, it wakes you up with it's citrusy sparkle and relaxes you eight hours later with big vanilla hug, extraordinary!
The liquorice is really subtle and green, it smells (tastes?!) more like chewing on a stick of woody liquorice root, it's not a black processed liquorice which I feel tends be heavier. Dying to try the Hermes Brin de Reglisse for comparison but I am sure that Caron's will be the stunner of all the current liquorice scents.
The annoying thing is that Caron tends to be difficult to find in the North of England, I buy mine online. If you have the chance to try it, TRY IT!

Just lovely! I crave an old discontinued liquorice/spice 'body treatment fragrance' by Decleor, I think it was discontinued in the late 1990s. This Caron fragrance is the closest thing to it. Warm, sweet, cake shop, very ginger/vanilla on the dry down. Unusual and delightful.
Does anybody remember what on earth the Decleor fragrance was called?

The first time I tried Eau De Reglissé I was amazed by the opening. The lemon-anis (liquorice) duet is pretty fantastic, but within a few minutes it sadly turns to be a generic Eau De Cologne as millions of others. Go for Eau Sauvage or Eau de Guerlain.

Rating: 7.5/10 (for the opening)
6.5/10 (for the drydown)

The absolute beauty of this is astounding. The lemon verbena drenched top notes are truly delightful and mix wonderfully with the main star of the show - liquorice. The drydown is very close to the skin with an ever present light and woody patchouli softened further by a lovely ginger-vanilla and slight musk. This has quickly shot to the top of my list as my favourite liquorice scent.

Most certainly more masculine than feminine, but easily worn by both.

Highly recommended.

If you're going to try this i would first ask yourself a few questions: can you drink licorice tea without making a face? When leaving an Indian restaurant do you down a handful of that licorice stuff on your way out? How often do you buy licorice in general?

This is, at least to me, a difficult herb to deal with. i do like eating it, but drinking it and wearing it cause adverse reactions. this scent was a no for me; it was too irritating on my nose and I started to get a headache. i couldn't even wait it out to see what they dry down would be like.

Try before sampling, for sure.

This is just wonderful!
I had high expectations on EdR which were not disappointed.
The lemony notes are very prominent in the beginning but soon they get tamed and blend in perfectly with the other lovely ingredients like ginger and discreet vanilla. After a few minutes EdR changes to a very soft but still fresh skinscent.
Refined, sophisticated and elegant.
If you want something different that not too many people smell of this might be your choice.

Lemon verbana and patchouli are some of my favorite notes in a perfume. This was definitely a winner for me.
