Most Helpful Positive Review My Favorite Perfume
I love this fragrance! It is long lasting, complex and natural smelling. It's not for everyone especially those who prefer modern, sweet, soapy, or light scents. I've been using it for over a year now. It is my signature and don't know how I once lived without it. I'd say it found me rather than me finding it. I smelt it on friend who told me it was Clinique Aromatics Elixr. At the time I was using Opium by YSL but found it too strong for daily use and not very "me". So I ran to my local Ulta and sprayed it on my arm. At first I didn't believe it was the same fragrance and was saddened. I went home without purchasing it. Then as I layed in my bed I was stunned- there was that beautifully alluring smell I sniffed on my friend. So the next day I went back and bought a bottle. I wear it everyday and get so many compliments from men and women of all ages. My advice to anyone considered Aromatics Elixr is to spray it on your skin and wait 20-30 minutes to get the full effect. I know that sounds long in today's world of instant satisfaction and perfumes that smell the same in the bottle as they do on but this is a 1970s glory. It takes time, but once you get there it's well worth the wait.
Most Helpful Critical Review Iffy
I have worn and loved this fragrance for over 20 years and have always received compliments. However, the bottle I purchased a few days ago was totally different--in a bad way-- no staying power, fades way too soon. Sensing the formula had changed, or at least that my recent purchase was different from my trusted old one, I applied the last spray from that bottle and sure enough it lasted basically all day. In all the years I've worn it, I never had to reapply..it was always a "once and done" fragrance and was worth the money . I am very disappointed in the bottle I just purchased, especially having bought the large bottle.

Anne the consumer from Akron, OH
As loyal consumer of Clinique Elixir, I'm distressed that I've purchased several bottles of fragrance and body cream but none of them smell right! I thought it was a fluke, but it's not. The formula has been changed and it's not nearly as fragrant and lovely as the original scent. Please don't fool consumers into thinking they are purchasing the same original fragrance. I've wasted quite a bit of money and have not been pleased with the product.
Really upset with change in formula
Red Rock Mom from St George Utah
I have worn this scent for over 40 years and wore it daily. This was my signature scent. It smells strong initially when it is sprayed, but settles in to a very soft clean scent. People that are allergic to perfumes never notice my perfume as smells so clean and not intense. It seems to linger on clothing which I actually love. To my dismay, I purchased the elixir in November 2019 thinking my current bottle wouldn't last much longer, but I didn't run out until June!! Opened the new package and found the scent was NOT the same at all. Went to a department store and bought a bottle and though the Display bottle was the original scent, the bottle I purchased was not. The color is not deep topaz color any more but a light citrine color. There are some pretty upset women out here that are mad that Clinique would change the formula on their original perfume. I have read comments on Clinique's website and other sites as well. I certainly hope you relay to the powers that be that this type of change is not acceptable to long time clientele that know the difference between the original scent and the scent it is today. So disappointed in Clinique!

Melody from Burlington
Very very bad smell. I really want to return it.
YennaFoo from Gilroy, CA
I was so shocked and unhappy with this product. Something is different. It was so horribly strong in all the wrong ways and would NOT wash off! It was truly nauseating, in my opinion, and I could not WAIT to return it. I alarmist think it must have been a bad batch or something because there was nothing good about it. I can not recommend this product to anyone as it is an assault on the olfactory senses!
Yes.My favorite for years.

Loyal Clinique user from Spring, Tx
I have worn this fragrance since I was in college! People often stop me to ask what I am wearing! I will say that it does smell different on everyone because it tends to interact with your own body chemistry. Also, it lingers throughout the day, which is wonderful.
Ellen from Charlotte, NC
I have worn this fragrance for about 40 years. It never disappoints and I always get compliments. So happy it's not one of those that have gone away over the years.
All time favorite

My signature scent for 35+ years
Kat from Tucson, Az.
I started using Aromatics when I was in my early 20's. I can't really smell it on myself since I've been wearing it for so many years but I get lots of compliments on my perfume. My mom and sister tried it but didn't like the way it smelled on them. They're blonde and fair skinned and I'm brunette with darker skin. I don't know if that makes a difference but whenever I smell it on someone else, they're brunette too.

Reminds me of my grandmother 🥰
ripgranny from louisville kentucky
December 22, 2006 we buried my grandmother after her long battle with a brain tumor. At her funeral visitation I kissed her cheek and she smelled just like this fragrance. The funeral home also smelled like Clinique Aromatics Elixir. Been searching for this scent ever since then.
AromaticsEagle from Aiken SC
I caught this scent on a woman passing by in a mall. I wanted to ask her but she was moving fast. I found it in a department store but didn't buy it. Forgot about it for several years then was in Ulta buying make-up three weeks ago and a woman sprayed some and I tried it. I love this scent. I used to buy Alyssa Ashley Civet oil and Ambergris oil for many years but they are no longer available in USA. This scent is as close as I can find to those sensual scents. I am very pleased with this Aromatic. It last all day, use sparingly, its powerful in my opinion. I am allergic to the aluminum in deodorants so I use this as deodorant, it works, no complaints only compliments from others.
I have been buying "Aromatics Elixir" for over 20 yrs...
Marta from Orlando, FL
I use Elixir when I go out (day time or evening). Always been complimented on how I smell.
Smell like a goddess/wood nymph
Lilly from Transplanted Southerner
This scent is a little complicated; it changes throughout the day. It smells like the way I imagine the Greek goddess Diana would smell. She was strong, independent, and talked to woodland creatures, among other things. The fragrance was reformulated when oak moss was banned, and the change was disconcerting at first. But after I got used to it, I fell back in love with Aromatics Elixer. I won't wear anything else.

Happy wearer from Nashville, Tn
I use this when I want to smell really good but I don't want to be "labeled". This fragrance is perfect for that. You're not 'old', 'young', 'dramatic', 'feisty', or the grinch...you just smell awesome.
