The citrus, with juniper berry and possibly cardamom, is initially akin to a mildly skanky grapefruit note. Underneath, one can sense the woods and a note that reminds me very much of a soft leather. I didn't like Kelly Caleche as much as my review of it would suggest. The more often I wore it, the less I liked it and eventually felt the leather + flowers just didn't work for me. But leather + citrus + cedar = perfect. And the drydown, although it retains some of the sharpness of the opening, has a nice soft musky quality that I love.
Reading other bloggers thoughts of Voyage makes me wonder if we've been smelling the same fragrance. No worries - plenty of room in this world for multiple opinions. But am I the only one who gets that Ellena has started doing a variation of the same fragrance over and over again? Not that it's a bad thing, and he does occasionally mix it up with something like Apres la Mousson, but I wonder when this particular obsession will subside.
