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.
