While it lasts it is a pleasant woody lavender/rosemary with a musky drydown, to bad it doesn't last for to long. the similarity with Cool Water is obvious.
Casual, this fragrance starts off with Marine and Rosemary (I can't find the lavender) and ends up Very heavy on the white musk. After drydown, it smells to me like Original Curve for men (the one in the goldish-green bottle) but on Steroids. Not a disappointment, but not very original.
It's a nice fragrance for the price. If you like the original Curve for men, I think you'll appreciate it's lesser known stronger twin hiding in this blue bottle. Longevity is about 7 hours on me-when I wish it wasn't. (Changed from a thumbs up-after wearing this several times I find it cloying and waaaay too strong. That heavy musk just doesn't go away.)

I have all 4 elixirs and am getting the latest 5th (Elixir White) within the next week. But the Elixir Blue is definitely the best one of them all: very pleasant and clean, and slightly mysterious everyday fragrance. Some stores stopped selling it but you can still grab it for $10.00 if you look hard enough. Well worth even the full price of $20.00.
Commenting on the body wash, I love the scent of this. It is kind of a cross between Cool Water and Platinum Egoiste. It layers well with Erolfa for me. Great body wash.
I love this spray! Definitely the best of the 4 colognes from the set. It's a fresh aquatic scent that absolutely smells great and lasts for a pretty long time. Recommended! It's only $10
