When it comes to perfume, it is a choice of occasion, time of day, mood, outfit, whatever. That is just it.. the “whatever” factor. Changing of a womans perfume day to day, and occasion to another is a great way to explore, wear and love different perfumes.
I love collecting different samples and trying out new perfumes. I will wear one in the morning and a different one in the evening. I even layer them mid day and love smelling different scents.
One of Cliniques best known perfumes is Happy. You can’t go wrong at any time of day with this perfume. The perfume is light, crisp, clean. So, why not try another Clinique perfume? I tried Clinique Aromatics Elixir Perfume.
Clinique Aromatics Elixir Perfume was a major no go. It was heavy, “old womany smell” (No offence to older ladies please, I hope you know what I mean by this!). The rose, jasmine, ylang ylang and vetiver scents were taken way to far and way too concentrated.
Co workers almost ran from me. 2 quick sprays on me made people turn their nose up as they spoke to me. People around me coughed. I even had one co worker to ask me to please not wear the perfume again that I had on. I had thought the same of myself. I Went into the bathroom and washed it off.
The scent is long lasting, I will give it that. Even a quick rub of my neck and wrist with soap and water only lightened the scent.
When I returned home, I threw the bottle away. That was $30 wasted. I wish I had tried it in the store first.. I Would not have bought it.
I am not exaggerating.
Maybe it is my body chemistry. Possibly I received an old bottle. I am not sure. I will not be buying (or sampling) this one again.
If you purchase this one, please test it out on your skin first. After spraying a quick half of a spray, give it 10 minutes or so to dry. Then smell it. Base your decision on it then.
My advice would be not to spray wild with this perfume all over.
I am not one to give bad or negative reviews unless it really leaves a bad impression on me.
This one did leave a bad impression, I am very sorry to say. I am giving this review 1/2 of a star. Mainly because it is long lasting.
