The Luckyscent Description:
With Elixir, Penhaligon’s look back to its illustrious past and namely to its first fragrance, a daring and exotic Hammam Bouquet. The echo of the striking and provocative classic can be heard in Elixir. Opulent, complex and mysterious, the new Penhaligon’s creation, created by renowned nose Olivia Giacobetti, is one of the most gorgeous oriental perfumes we have encountered in a long time. The fragrance opens with a veritable firework of spices: cardamom, cinnamon and mace excite the senses while eucalyptus cools them down. In the heart of the scent, the body and soul of a wearer are pampered by the darkly luxurious Turkish rose and jasmine, sweetened by orange blossom. Heat intensifies and the smoke rises as the notes of incense and woods become apparent, enriched by resins and spices. A touch of vanilla and tonka bean softens and rounds the composition, finishing it on an ornate and sensual note. Elixir blends tradition and modernity, East and West, masculine and feminine into a wonderfully unique harmony.
something about the weather, when it drops below 5 degrees I grab my hoodies and pretty much live in them, fashion be damned. As I have somehow misplaced my old favourite grey one, I'm looking into replacing it. I got a pink one from joe fresh the other day, but this Roots one has also caught my eye. I love the longer style, and it may just find its way into my closet if it stays this cold.
