Aromatics Elixir description

Clinique is one of the most unique fragrance lines that you will come across as you build your collection. Their range of scents is dramatic – it starts with the super-sunny Clinique Happy and ends with one of the most intensely aromatic perfumes ever made: Aromatics Elixir. Both are considered iconic perfumes, and their personalities couldn’t be more different.

For the uninitiated, Aromatics Elixir is a monster perfume. It revolves around a gargantuan oak moss note in the heart that rises like Godzilla’s towering shadow from out of the depths.

This is a good thing for people who love chypre-style or green, mossy perfumes. Aromatics Elixir has grown an enormous cult following in the 36 years since its initial launch, and “in-the-know” fans wear it loyally. There is truly nothing else like it in the entire scented world, and no true perfume lover should pass on the chance to experience it.

Aromatics Elixir opens with an understated duo of soft, subtle rose and cool chamomile. The rose petals are an ambient sketch, just a flash of floral femininity behind the chill of the chamomile. The opening lingers for only a brief moment, but without this Zen-like floral start, the powerful heart would not be able to ascend to its thunderous height.

The heart of Aromatics Elixir is the heart of mystery itself. When the rose and chamomile fade, Aromatics Elixir expands into a glorious plain of pure floral energy. Smoky sweet tornadoes of jasmine and ylang-ylang furiously spin around an emerald green obelisk overgrown with lush patches of rich, damp oak moss.

The notes are not delicate. Instead, there is a palpable weight and a force buried inside them. The jasmine and ylang-ylang rise continuously in strength as they spiral through the darkness of Aromatic Elixir’s verdant heart. You don’t wear this perfume; you are confronted by it.

The dry down arrives in near silence. Warm rays of sandalwood and flashes of spicy, herbal patchouli filter through to escort the senses away to higher ground. The smooth, creamy sweetness of sandalwood is used to wonderful effect in the base, after the heart’s floral storm passes by. The sandalwood and amber notes airily comfort your senses after the oakmoss and its pulsing aromatic intensity subsides.

Aromatics Elixir is a fragrant force of nature. And just like people who love being out in a deluge, there are those who will love it and those who won’t.

But one day, you’ll have the notion to chase after a massive, chaotic storm. And this perfume will lead you right into the mysterious, exhilarating whirl of its embrace.

This was a scent I was constantly back and forth between, not sure if I really liked it, or felt like a I should have been wearing a shawl, walking with a cane, and shopping in a Christmas store. It’s not an unpleasant scent and it is very strong, one spray will last you almost an entire day. But it does almost have a nostalgic scent of something my grandmother would have worn.

The previous reviews seems to be either Love it or Hate it. I was hopeful that I would love it and I didn't. I applied it right after opening the package. It smelled really terrible (think my Grandma's perfume from 1967 that was rancid). I had to scrub my wrist to get it off after a few seconds. Bummer.

I don't get "woody" or "incense" out of this--and if by "sophisticated" you mean "80-year-old woman in a funeral home", then yes, it's VERY "sophisticated". It's sickly sweet with a powdery smell. I was hoping it would change enough with my chemistry to smell better, but nope--I smell like a funeral home. Extremely disappointing.

This is my signature scent. Yes, it is strong at first, you only need a little, smells better after you sweat, I recommend layering it with a natural (Aveda scent) body oil first. Honestly, I hear "You always smell so good", through out history. If you can wear, Fendi, CoCo, Youth Dew this is your scent. Some say it's older, I make it Classically Unforgettable.

It's very strong and heavy with that classic old lady scent. I wore it once to work, co workers caught wiffs of it and were put off by this scent. May work for other's skin chemistry but not mine. This is the first vintage type perfume I've tried that I DIDN'T like. It smells like old flowers, cheap musky powder , and black pepper to me..

Perfumes, like fashion, change over the years. I believe that this scent came out in the 70's. It really reminds me of something that my mom would've worn when I was young. That's not to say it smells "like an old lady". It's just an older perfume. It's bold, and distinguishable, but lovely.

I was definitely intrigued by this scent and wanted to try it....my initial impression upon opening the package was not good lol. I spritzed a tiny bit on my wrists and after a few minutes, the scent was really lovely! It is not a scent for the faint of heart, but it is a complex and long lasting scent for those that enjoy a good, spicy scent. I have to say I really dislike the "old lady perfume" tag. It is obnoxious. Do all "old ladies" wear the same type of perfume?

I did not like this scent... it was too old. It's the scent that lingers after an old woman walks by. I threw it away.

I had hoped that this would smell a bit more sophisticated on me, but it really had an "old lady perfume" smell that was too sweet for me.

I worked with a lady who wore this and everyone in the office hated it - so much so that they volunteered me to ask her what she was wearing so we knew not what to buy lol. It is truly awful imo - extremely strong and old lady-ish smelling.

It's a mature scent for sure. Strong woody and musky notes. If you're not a fan of musky scents then pass on this one.

Definitely a more mature scent! A beautiful chypre with a strong herbal base, some powder, and (at least for me) a punch of ylang ylang. The best part is the dry down - it becomes soft and woodsy, and super sexy. Katie Puckrik (from YouTube) suggested wearing a spray on the small of one's back, so the fragrance gently wafts around you. I agree, that's the best way to wear it. It's intense, and such a nice change from all the gourmands (which I also love) out there.

I don't know if I got a bad batch or what, but this is probably the worst thing I have ever smelled. I had to wash it off immediately. Smelling it in the bottle, all I got was an overwhelming powdery aroma. It wasn't unpleasant, but I wasn't moved either way until I actually sprayed it on. First I was hit with a really interesting, spicy scent and was feeling pleasantly surprised...until that initial spice gave way to something that just smelled rotten. Like I'd forgotten something in the back of the drawer of my fridge. Not woody at all. I don't think I've ever had such a negative reaction to a perfume before.

NOTE: THIS SCENT IS FOR REAL GROWN WOMEN!!! I LOVE MY CLINIQUE!!!! All you young chickies who have said this smells like your momma or granny, well, you're right! This scent holds up well and is very long-lasting. Yes, it comes out strong, but the dry-down is warm, woodsy and smooth. So you young ladies can keep your Beyonce, Rihanna, Lady Gaga, JLo and all them jellybean, Jolly Rancher, cotton candy and Skittle scented perfumes lol give me my Aromatics every day !!! 😉😊😺

I LOVE CLINIQUE AROMATICS!!! This perfume IS NOT for you young chickies... this is for a REAL GROWN WOMAN!!! It has staying power and yes it is a tad strong coming out of the bottle, but the dry down is wonderfully warm and woodsy. I have received many compliments on this perfume, and yes I am a grandma and I'm not trying to smell like Jolly Ranchers, Skittles, Fruit Loops or gawd, cotton candy!!! I am a mature woman, and I will wear this scent into eternity!!! You youngins can keep your Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Rihanna, JLo and all that flowery, sweet stuff...give me my Aromatics!!!!

I've got to be the descenting voice here and say I wore this off and on since high school. It was one of my go-to perfumes when I wanted something to stand out from all the fresh/clean/fruity frags the girls around me were wearing. And, I love patchouli and this is an elegant take on it. There's florals, a touch of dark fruits but most of all this fabulous greenness that feels like wearing emerald colored velvet. It makes me worry whenever AE gets tossed in the "old lady" pile, which in and of itself is rather insensitive in my opinion since we'll all be older someday, because I'd truly panic and stockpile were it to be discontinued. But it's beautiful, has fantastic staying power and only gets better with age. My fourteen-year-old daughter loves it and often asks if she can borrow it, and it is a breath of enchanting forest air in a world of frosted pink flowers and oceanic soapy musk.

Aromatics Elixir is one of my all time favorite perfumes. Not many perfumes last 40+ years on the market, but this one has earned it's place as a classic. It's definitely not what's in vogue right now in the perfume industry...this is NOT a sweet, cute, fruity floral that all the perfumers are churning out by the hundreds these days. This is the world's best oakmoss, in my opinion. The spices and flowers are PERFECT. This is perfume that packs a punch; only 1 spray on my skin is a gracious plenty. That said, test it at home or out and about on errands, before heading to the office: This is a LOVE IT or HATE IT perfume! :) Bonus points for being affordable too! PS. Many perfume bloggers recommend letting your bottle age for several months/years, as it only gets better with age....

My mom purchased this scent in Sweden for me when I was in HS and have loved it since, whenever I wear it, I get reminded of her and it brings back so many memories. Love that I can now carry it around in my purse and don't need to worry about the large bottle.

One spray is all you need. This is a lovely, heady scent but quite bold. It has an intriguing spicy quality; very layered and unique. I am going to guess that it might be very different one person to the next. For me this is an evening fragrance and not something I'd wear every day or during the day. It's a bit more "winter" as well with a warm spicy sweetness. The name may say it all "aromatics".

"Aromatics Elixir is truly a very unique scent, unlike any other I've tried (though I am still quite new to using perfume). VERY strong opening, an intense green herbal chamomile with a lily-soap undertone that hits the back of the throat. Reminiscent of of scented bug spray, honestly. But after it mellows out a bit and the flowery-soapy smell emerges a bit more, I do find myself enjoying it (LOVE it on my clothes; I may spray it on laundry). A.E. has that 'classic' perfume smell, like the way a chic hippie aunt would smell. If you exclusively enjoy fruity/gourmand/sweet scents, this will probably not be a favorite of yours."
