I cracked open my bottle of Elixir recently and have so far worn it 3 times. The first was on a cold, cloudy day. The second was on a dry, hot day with a good breeze. Today I'm wearing it on a cool rainy morning with colder temps and hail predicted in the afternoon. The eucalyptus steam topnote in Elixir is a real nose-grabber - aromatic, pungent, veering very close to the medicinal. I notice subtle differences according to weather as to how I'm reacting to it. Surprisingly, the hot-dry wear was my favorite so far. I was afraid that Elixir might turn out to be too much a winter-holiday kind of cliche, but I am proving myself wrong. Today, because of the moisture in the air, I'm getting the gist of the "steam" part of this. Very enjoyable scent and much more versatile than I'd first thought.
