Iivanita the opening of this defiitely has a whiff of the resinous aspect of Aromatics Elixir, but fear not if you don't like that perfume. That association soon dies down - this is mainly a floral - not just white flowers but mainly a rose and jasmine combo. It's a big floral and not terribly unique - reminds me of some rose dominated Guerlains more than anything else - but the bitter-sweetness, warmth and luxuriousness of the base (vanilla, sandal, leather, marzipan) under the flowers is something else. Also pretty wearable, won't knock you out. It's all a question of quality and finish rather than great originality. Definitely worth sampling.
