Please welcome a new member of my perfume family – Aromatics Elixir by Clinique! 🙂
I am very happy with it 🙂 and even if it is eau de toilette, the longevity is fantastic. It does need a little bit of time to settle on my skin, while something cold and herbal (maybe it is the note of chamomile?) evaporates… But nonetheless, I love this smooth, woody, earthy perfume on me… And am very glad with this addition to the collection 🙂
I placed it in the picture together with Opium (EDP, by YSL) as they are quite similar to me.
Just a quick note to folks traveling to / near Dublin – House of Fraser store in Dundrum Town Centre (exit 13 off M50) has a very few sales items left, including Christmas gift boxes. But the ones I would recommend you to seek and grab while they’re still there are Annick Goutal and Serge Lutens perfumes. Majority – half price.
The store is discounting the older version of Serge Lutens fragrances, all 50ml, price raging between 70 – 80 euros.
From Annick Goutal range I noticed a couple of bottles from Les Absolus collection, priced at approx. 100 euros for 100 ml (down from 200 euros), also some other of her bottles, like Petite Cherie, Songes, Sables.
Anyone still on the look out for these beauties, anyone collecting, or really craving for a true niche perfume experience that you maybe couldn’t afford before? Head to Dundrum shopping centre! Once they’re gone – they’re gone!
P.S. Prices are correct at the time of writing the blog post, 18 January, 2018.
I hope you’re all enjoying this lovely time of the year, wherever you are. Days in Lithuania are very different from one another. I am used to this from living in Ireland, so nothing can surprise me anymore.. unless it is snow! 🙂 I love snow 🙂 especially when the ground is freshly covered with a nice thick layer of it.. and as you walk, you can hear it crunch underneath your feet…. 🙂 everything around then looks so peaceful and festive… ❤
Well, to be honest, I cannot even say that I am still wearing this perfume, as in just one hour or so it disappeared from my wrist as if it has never even been there…. All I got after spritzing it was a gentle, generic, sweet fruity scent.. a touch of orange and maybe some magnolia, jasmine… the next time I wanted to sniff it again – it was already gone! 😦 …maybe during a hot summer day it might reveal its magic, but summer is soooo far away that I am not even sure if I will remember to dig that sample out… personally, the original aquatic EDP version is way better… Sorry Versace, I am beginning to lose hope… 🙂
