Many of you have already heard that Estee Lauder is discontinuing the Prescriptive brand. Distribution will cease in January 2010, after which products will continue to be available on the Prescriptives website while supplies last. Prescriptives Calyx, however, is safe: it will continue in production and will be distributed under the Aramis fragrances division beginning February 1st, 2010. (via email from Estee Lauder)

Whew! Some good news on a Friday. I really adore this scent. It’s perfect for a hot (when we get those days in SF) humid summer day.
Yeah…I’d hate to see it go. And assume they’re keeping it because it still sells, & that makes me happy too.
Exactly! It’s got that nice balance of fruity green crisp freshness without the ozone (no offense to those who like ozone). It’s such an easy scent to wear though.
Definitely a fun scent. I’m glad I discovered it earlier this year. Such a pick-me-up.
Yes, it is!
I’m glad it’s not going to be dc’ed, but I’m going to have to stock up on my fave lipstick (Wisteria) and blush (Poppy) before they completely shut down. What a shame, they make some great cosmetics.
Oh dear, yes, stock up now!
Calyx and I were recently reunited after more than 15 years apart and I was pleasantly suprised at how much I still liked it. Might be the only thing I wore in the 80s that I want to revisit
Yes — and to me, it still smells perfectly “modern”.
I fell in love with Calyx the first time I wore it this summer, and just wore it a few days ago. It’s fruity and green, but not syrupy or too crisp or ozonic, and I wouldn’t change a thing. So glad it’s not going to be getting the ax. Of course, with the fragrance rights changing hands, does this also mean reformulation is likely? Also, I’ve heard this is one that doesn’t age well, so I was wondering if anyone had suggestions on what I can do to insure I’m buying a “fresh” bottle when my decant runs out? Thanks.
It isn’t changing hands…EL owned it before & they’ll still own it…just to be distributed differently.
I love Calyx in the warm weather too….but I’ve also heard that it doesn’t keep terribly well. This is one of the few fragrances that I still keep in the refrigerator. I started out with everything in the fridge….until perfume space exceeded food space……Despite the grumbles I insisted upon keeping one doorshelf for perfumes.
Big sigh of relief! Coming on the heels of the news they’re discontinuing Vanilia, it was almost too much to handle.
It really is too bad about Vanilia. I do like its replacement though!
Just now catching up. I didn’t even know Calyx was threatened, and feel somewhat like a person who finds out days after the fact that on the one day he was late for work, a grand piano dropped on the exact spot where he stands every morning waiting for the bus.
