Melodrama Fragrance Reviews


I love Melodrama, yes created by Christopher Sheldrake but discontinued very quickly. It was not the type of fragrance loved by the normal SpaceNK customer it seems. Sad face from me.

It opens with a sharp blast which reminded me of Sisley Eau de Soir, but soon settles down into a classic vintage chypre. Loads of oakmoss, warm smooth and very classy.

I managed to get a back up bottle sometime back on ebay. It does appear now and then and well worth it if you love classic chypres

This perfume-art was created by the famous Christopher Sheldrake (for Brittish SPACE NK). Hard to find, and sadly discontiniued! The dramatic scent was inspired by the black & white movies of the 1930s. The notes are bergamot, orange blossom, French lavender, pink rose, heliotrope, gardenia, jasmine, oakmoss, patchouli and vetiver. Here's some very well-describing info from perfumesmellinthings blog: " Melodrama was created for Space NK, a stylish UK-based “apothecary”, by Chris Sheldrake, the perfumer responsible for many Serge Lutens’s scents. “Inspired by the allure of classic scents, Melodrama pays homage to the golden age of perfumery in the 1920s”, says Space NK, and indeed, this is a fragrance with a vintage, classic feel. This is a heady scent, but the blend is so smooth, that somehow that headiness is not overwhelming or uncomfortable. Melodrama is a good example of a scent we can expect from the Chanel-Sheldrake team. Excellently blended, high quality, handsome scent with classic ambitions."
