it's here it's here it's finally here! What you might be asking? why Elixir from Penhaligons of course! The newest fragrance from my favourite nose, Olivia Giacobetti. I smell this at Noor a moth or so ago (when I got my Dzing! bottle) unfortunately they don't have it in yet (in a few weeks they told me) so I'll hold off on buying it until I can get it from them. But it's so lovely. Ahh! I can't wait!

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.
