Magical
I LOVE this. However, at the beginning it's a little foul. I spray it on my ankle to keep it as far away from my nose as possible. After 20 minutes it starts getting amazing and I almost feel enchanted by it. It's a compliment getter. A little goes a long way.

Not for the faint of heart
I began wearing Aromatics Elixir when it first came out. I'm usually attracted to singular floral scents like Rose, Jasmine, honeysuckle. But I'm deeply drawn to other scents too like chocolate, coffee, candy, vanilla, etc. Then there's the type of scents some may consider "masculine". When I spray Aromatics Elixir on me, I can Immediately smell the jasmine & ylang-ylang. Then the oak moss, sandalwood & patchouli come out to play & stick around. Some may feel it smells masculine, but it depends on your chemistry too. It lasts all day & night on me. I personally love it. I get many compliments. It's very strong so a little can go a long way. It's NOT an old lady scent. Sometimes a scent doesn't mix well with a person's chemistry. Some parts of a scent are predominant on one person more than others. And, if your on medications, that can affect your chemistry as well as eating spicy foods. Another reviewer suggested to mix it (or any scent you really don't like with another scent & create your own fragrance. Fragrance is about finding your personal signature scent(s). And start off with a light hand, many scents can be over powering. I love a great "men's" scent that also has Oud, Fern, leather, incense, Tonka bean, etc. I use men's fragrances & mix some with women's scents. Don't get discouraged. Fragrance is supposed to be fun.

Not for me
I did not like this scent at all and it is unbelievably strong. I sprayed it on a piece of paper to try it out. I immediately decided I didn't like it and asked my mom if she wanted it. I was sitting in her room for about 20 minutes talking and she decided she didn't want it because the smell from the paper was giving her a headache. I walked into my sister's room right after and she told me I smelled like old lady. All this from one, maybe 2 sprays on a piece of paper.

The most overpowering scent ever
I sprayed this on a Kleenex to test. I decided right away that I did not like it at all. I threw the Kleenex in the trash can about three feet away from me. About 30 minutes later i could not take it anymore and I had to take the garbage outside. It has now been a couple hours later and I feel like i can still smell it. It is so bad it's haunting me... I think I should be able to return it and get a different option for the month because this is a total waste of money.

Nooo thankyouu.
Oh my gosh! I normally like the old fashioned, "old lady" perfumes. But this is just way too harsh for me. It's so sharp, almost metallic. Reminds me of prowling at my grandparents house and finding ancient Avon perfumes. I smelled a sample at the store, and I thought it was more like spicy incense and red roses. Maybe I got confused and remembered the wrong one? But whatever the cause, this is just a big fat NO for me.

My signature fragrance until...
I'd worn Aromatics exclusively since 1992. It worked beautifully with my body chemistry so that people (both men and women) would stop me and ask what fragrance I was wearing. My dentist used to tell me I smelled like clean, fresh powder (this after having worked all day). My husband loved it, too, which was the only reason I needed to make it my signature. But, earlier this year, I opened a new bottle and immediately noticed a difference. Something had changed. I bought another bottle. When that fragrance was also different, I began to search online forums and reviews. There seemed to have been a formula change, so I called the company. A customer service rep confirmed it. The new formula does not go on, dry down, last, or smell the way the other formula did. I was so disappointed that I joined Scentbird so that I could look for another signature fragrance. And that's the only positive thing I can say about this new-fangled formula.

Agreed. Clinique, for some ungodly reason, has removed the oak moss from the formula, leaving a watered-down mess of Aromatics. I actually bought two bottles of the "old" formula on eBay, and checked with the seller to be sure that oak moss was listed in the ingredients. I can't imagine what Clinique was thinking to ruin a great perfume.....

Intense Sexy Scent
This is one of my favorite scents. I've been wearing it for years and always get compliments about it. People frequently ask what am I wearing and one friend liked it so much he bought it as a gift for his girlfriend. Warning.... this is not a fragrance for the timid. It demands attention. I also like that this perfume is long lasting; it doesn't fade away like many fragrances.

Hippy Magic
This perfume is what bohemian dreams are made of...but there’s a catch (imho.) I find that this perfume is THE most amazing layering scent. If you love deep, mysterious perfumes that turn heads and make people ask “what IS that smell?”, pair this with any other perfume you love or use it to transform the ones you don’t. I find it especially useful for transfiguring all of my Scentbird rejects into perfumes I actually adore. Being just the type of person who likes an oceanic depth to my scents, I’m often disappointed by the one dimensional-ness of so many that other people love and recommend. Aromatics Elixor is my secret to transforming each of them into exactly what I’m looking for! It smells different with each mixture but I haven’t found a single thing it doesn’t pair well with and take to the next level. My favorites so far are Versace, crystal noir and Anna Sui, la vie de boheme.

Finally!
Before i joined scentbird, several people in retail told me Ciniques Elixir was no longer available. I found this to be false information so i searched where it would be available. Lucky for me, i found my favorite grown up bohemien fragrance! With a deep floral onset turning subtle with body heat releasing slight musk and patchouli tones that lightly linger through the day. Thanks Scentbird!🐦🐥

Call all Mother Board Members
I had really high hopes for this fragrance. However, it smells reminiscent of a combination of the Mother board at your local baptist church, peppermints from the bottom of your purse, and a light whiff of nursing home. Its a very "mature" fragrance. Add to your queue at your own risk.

Only starts as a grandma scent
I actually like this perfume. I get the old lady analogy as that is the initial scent that hits you and it’s initially very strong, but after a few minutes it settles down and changes, ends up a lovey spicy scent.

Not great as a perfume
Quite over powering as a perfume, but it is outstanding as an air freshener, if you can get past the initial spray. It will cover the most horrific odors in a room with a single spray. As it settles in, it smells of baby powder, old flowers, and archaic perfume.

My Grandmother actually wore this.
This was my grandmother's go-to perfume. It is STRONG and herbal. The color of the perfume actually reminds me of the smell. It's a different take on patchouli. If you swap the hippie/earthy element of patchouli and replace it with powdery mature floral...this is the perfume you get. It's certainly not for the faint of heart and it's rather unforgettable. Not my thing, but if you love patchouli and mature florals, this is it.

This sent is not for everyone.
I love the sent of this. Reminds me of when I was a child. First initial spray is very strong. But after it airs out and dries out this sent conforms to your body chemistry. I smell a strong sent of insence and floral mix. Like I said in the title this sent is not for everyone. Some people it reminds them of an old lady or grandma smell others may not feel that way. If you like your perfume to linger and don't want to keep applying and love a woodsy sent. Aromatics Elixir by Clinique is for you. If not.... Don't try it.

I couldn't even give this fragrance stars because it was absolutely hideous. I have seen others comment on fragrances smelling like "old lady" and I never quite got it, well believe me, I GET IT NOW! I would like to find some redeeming quality about this scent and if there is one it's that it is long lasting. I sprayed the scent on my wrist and I thought it would NEVER go away. I have been a member of Scentbird for going on 2 years and have only had one other perfume that I didn't like so I believe that being said, that's pretty good odds. I plan on gifting it to someone I suppose.

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 was glad to see an old favorite on the list. That’s right I am probably older than most that subscribe here! Lol. This is a scent that doesn’t take much and it lasts all day! Currently, most scents require you to spray it on like hair spray for it to last 2 hours

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 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.

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.
