Following the classical trends of the spring, some of which I described in my Trend Watch yesterday, Clinique has released a limited edition version of their 1972 iconic fragrance Aromatics Elixir called Aromatics Elixir Perfumer’s Reserve. It has a stronger white floral accent of jasmine sambac and tuberose set against the mossy-woody structure of the fragrance.
It includes notes of bergamot, orange blossom, verbena, clary sage, jasmine sambac, rose, tuberose, patchouli, myrrh, vetiver, dark woods, labdanum, resins.
The original Aromatics Elixir includes notes of geranium, orange blossom, verbena, chamomile, clary sage, jasmine, rose, tuberose, ylang-ylang, patchouli, vetiver, oakmoss, amber, civet. It was created in 1971 by perfumer Bernard Chant.
