    I can't help as such, but I think you'd be better going to Basenotes and asking there. There's always vintage stuff for sale, but if not, hopefully someone can point you in the right direction.

    I didn't receive it either, I think there's a contact us option somewhere, if you use that they manually activate for you.

    Wowsers, the issue with trying to find old timers like this that weren't huge hits that were constantly reformulated through time is that a) not many people still have any juice left and b) if they have they don't think of selling and c) if they do there is no guarantee that the juice will smell the same as it could have been sitting on the windowsill for the past 30 years.

    Smalto Francesco Smalto for men is reputed to be similar and as they are both aromatics with chamomile top notes plus they have a lot of other accords in common too and are from the same era.

    £15 here:
    Smalto by Francesco Smalto Eau De Toilette EDT Spray 50ml 1.7 oz – SoLippy

    Fancy giving it a spin and reporting back with what you think? (nb I've never used that site, use a credit card just to be sure).

    I've got a couple of places I go digging to find old scents and if this ever pops up I'll shoot you a message.

    Cheers

    Thanks, I've ordered that but to be honest I can't fully remember what the calvin was like I just know I've never smelt anything as good. I just hope the smalto arrives after reading a few reviews online
    Oh yeah and please do let me know if you see any calvin.

    The olfactory system is an amazing thing, when you think you've forgotten it remembers everything. You'll pick up whats familiar and whats different in an instant with this new fragrance, its a tip I give to a lot of people who are training their nostrils for bigger things.

    Looking forward to your thoughts.

    Well i wouldn't order anything from solippy, ordered the Smalto 8 days ago and not recieved anything. Got an email off them a couple of days ago to say my order had been moved to proccessing and thats it. Looks like a small shop when i google it so it must take quite a long time to get a bottle off the shelf, wrap it up and take it to the post office. I've had products delivered from china 3 days after i ordered

    Personally I just don't understand why some businesses do that, why bother if your not going to bother

    I've recently had cause to wonder the same myself as prompt service always guarantees repeat custom in my experience. Plus its not exactly like they have to manufacture it, just pick it up, put it in a box, stick on a stamp and off you go.

    Had another email saying they are refunding my payment as it's not in stock! Took a long time for them to realise that
