Been in love with this perfume for over 30 years! Truly! It will always be my alltime fav! Thank you Scentbird for letting me enjoy my favorites. It does an Army veteran good to know whenever I want a nice scent of my choice that Scentbird will provide it.

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 fell in love with this scent when I first noticed it on a co-worker. I was excited to try it. I felt it seemed a little strong at first. My kids said that I smelled like Grandma, but my husband said he liked it. I work in a hospital, and so far nobody has complained!

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?

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 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....

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."
