Caleche Soie de Parfum Fragrance Reviews

I have just been sold what I believe to be a sealed bottle of Caleche Soie de Parfum dd. from 1994 (looked up the code on the box). Has this perfume been reformulated (being sold now), or is it discontinued if anybody knows?
The writing is in the centre of the box (not at the top).

This review is for the reformulated Caleche. It is bright, intense juice. Im not surprised to be hit with aldehydes first. Next I am very aware of soapiness, oakmoss, citrus and then a little rose. Not surprisingly it takes a while for the rose and wood notes to really appear as the soapiness is quite strong. A very classic fragrance thats perfect for formal wear. Tbh I find it a touch too much for me on the aldehydes but I will definitely use it for layering because the sillage and longevity are very good.

Caleche Soie de parfum had nothing to do with the old Caleche Eau de Parfum as I remember it. I remember my mum having a sample when I was little , it was a small yellow box with a carriage printed on it. I was mesmerized by it although I was little and Caleche was too mature for me. Back then it was an intensive potion of aldehydes , oakmoss and sunny liquid as I call the neroli. That smell is still in my head! Now that I own Soie de Parfum I can tell the difference . Hermes has toned down the oakmoss , it is still soapy and clean but without the mustiness of oakmoss or the heavy 'church feeling'. It is a lighter approach of an old classic , very well made and refined. I enjoy it having it on me during warm months , I feel refreshed and rejuvenated. A very sunny and bright take on Caleche. It has quite good duration surrounding you in an ethereal light veil.

Woody Aldehyde

Soie de Parfum is all about the woods, the soap, and the roses. The aldehyde top notes have the feeling of the smoothest, softest, whitest bar of soap. Triple milled "French" soap that was pressed into a soft oval shape, no hard corners. The soap is scented with sandalwood and sweet vetiver, the vetiver used here is so sweet that is almost smells edible. The rose that sits underneath the soapy/woody topnotes is a perfectly pink, round rose, the most prominent floral, it lives in a beautiful bed of oakmoss and sandalwood. As it dries down, the rose eventually dims a little, and a hint of rooty iris emerges, while the base is woody and strong, as it has been all along, plenty of vetiver, cedar, sandalwood, and oakmoss.

Obviously I love this, since I love woody/oakmoss perfumes. I actually think this improves on the original Caleche, with the focus of the rose, it really makes the perfume more complex overall. The base is wonderful, with verboten sandalwood, real cedar, and oakmoss (instead of woody scented iso e super dryer sheet.) I am not sure that a perfume like this would be made today, it is too risque and not 'feminine' enough, with all the woody notes. Silage is pleasant, staying power is about 6 hours.

I am basing this review off an older mini, I am not sure what the reformulation smells like.

Born in the 90s and even more vintage than the original Soie de Parfum is a creamy round Rose into a french allure of aldheydes sandalwood "lime" and moss/musk.

Like the original is good for a Grace Kelly with three children.
An overdose of class in exhibition.

This is a big perfume! It is luxurious like some of Roja Dove's creations. Gorgeous citrus, moss floral. Opens green and loud and settles into the most glorious mossy citrus woody floral. The moss note in this and Amazone almost have a smoky, dry character.

Well I have a 100 ml bottle of the stuff, blind buy based on reviews, what do I regret it, I'll pass it on to one of my cousins, they think because it is hermes it has to be good and will love me for the present. I don't like it at all, somebody made a reference to French luxury, well I live in 3 Western European country's of which one is France (where I am at the moment) I don't smell that stinker here, I even would not dare to wear it....hermes is simply overrated IMHO.
Update

I have tried it again and to my big surprise I even start to like it, must have been something with my skin ,I was a bit ill, maybe that was the reason.
Anyway no luck for a cousin...I keep it

I love Caleche since always, even if I'm not a regular wearer, BUT... EdT was made thinner and what about the opulent Soie de Parfum? I'm not sure. Something smells weird here. It's still a longlasting powerful floral plus aldeide, still ladylike, but it's somehow heavier and less airy than before.
On my skin after 1 hour it develops a slightly annoying and banging grapefruit note. I never noticed that in past years. I thought that being an inconsistent wearer maybe I didn't notice every single nuance. It can be, but I also find this note identical to the annoying "grapefruit" edge in Jour d'Hermes which is taken to an extreme in the Absolu. I despise that note and I hope it's not the new chemical for bergamot note. It's not as volatile as bergamot rather a hammering note that never fades. Here in Soie de Caleche is blended nicely more or less, but in many perfumes it gives me the acrid armpit edge.

Pure luxury. What a pleasure it is to wear this. Wear it with a potato sack and feel like a Duchess anyway. It's that old fashioned French fine soap fragrance with a modern very classy twist. The twist is in the aldehyde. It makes the whole rich and refined. This is a perfume you want to leave on your lovers pillow. He won't get you out of his mind.
