The mythical Greek seductress Calypso could easily conquer the hearts of men with her magnetic charms. This legendary beauty inspires the opulent fragrance, Calypso by Robert Piguet – a composition of exotic character and emotion. Lively, distinct, and unique, Calypso lingers in the memory like a haunting siren’s call. Calypso exudes romance, seduction and power while dazzling with old world charm and sophistication. Calypso has been reimagined by Aurelien Guichard to bring this classic fragrance from the Piguet archives of the 1950’s back to life.
Calypso is also an ode to the sensuality of women of the 1950’s, alluring and mysterious. All of the mischief happens behind closed doors.
Calypso is a seductive mélange of Roses, Amber and Patchouli. Vivacious Mandarin and Geranium serve as the prelude to the scent’s warm heart of crimson red Roses. Then, a blend of Turkish and Bulgarian Rose essences are laced with rich Iris and Patchouli. For a seductive finale, Amber and Suede lay an unforgettable drydown.
Top: Geranium, Mandarin
Middle: Orris Butter, Rose Centifolia, Bulgarian Rose

HOW IT WEARS
This is a powerhouse of a scent on the skin, elements of powder and floral warmth stand out. There is a buttery smoothness to Calypso when on the skin, the powdery tones is a gentle soft earthy blend of Amber and Suede. It is smooth and elegant, like wearing the most glamorous pair of suede gloves, whilst holding a bouquet of deep red roses. Calypso is strong and lasts at least 8 hours but is never overwhelming, it is the perfect blend of floral and earthy tones with a distinct vintage feel to it.
That vintage feeling Calypso creates transports you back to a time of elegance and mystery, it just whisks you away to a red carpet moment in the 1950’s. The starlet wears suede gloves, her deep red dress is reminiscent of a wonderful red rose, her lipstick a bold hue of red. She is intoxicatingly charming and breathtakingly beautiful. Calypso is her scent.
