If it smells great on you, then you are a lucky woman. I have also smelled this 'work' on the right person and it really smells divine. So sexy, sultry and fresh - all simultaneously. With wonderful sillage and longevity. It also seems to really 'work' in the Miami warm weather, too.
On my skin (and others, as you've observed) Aromatics Elixir it is more akin to a nuclear warhead explosion - mixed with...oh, nail polish. Downright horrible, in other words.
