    Aromatics Elixir by Clinique

    I can't understand this fragrance. I can almost see why people love it, yet at the same time I can see why people dislike it.

    The opening is bitter, strong and alcoholic. To me it smelt like nail polish remover complete with hints of acetone. Not a particulary pleasant olfactory experience.

    The heart is fierce and powerful. It's like a floral explosion on your skin. I found it confusing and disturbing to say the least.

    I get the medicinal and herbaceous quality that other reviewers have described, in the drydown. It was too green and musty for my liking. In fact it was very difficult for me to identify any particular notes. Aromatics Elixir can be quite messy at times.

    I wanted to experience a rich, warming and unique fragrance, but what I received was unwelcoming and strange. I still for the life of me, can't understand this scent. Definitely not my cup of tea.
