Clinique’s Aromatics Elixir Celebrates 40 Years

Clinique Aromatics ElixirReleased in 1971, Aromatics Elixir was Clinique’s first fragrance and over the years this floral chypre with its dominant notes of patchouli, oakmoss and white flowers has become a perennial favourite with over 19.7 million bottles sold in the last decade alone. To celebrate this classic fragrance’s 40th anniversary, Clinique has announced the release of a limited edition collection.

The anniversary collection will consist of a 100ml Aromatics Elixir, a 25ml Perfumer’s Reserve edition and a 1.4g solid perfume necklace. While the 100ml edition will retain it’s classic notes, the Perfume’s reserve edition will offer a more modern and smoother interpretation of the original and feature notes of rose, jasmine, myrrh and patchouli, blended with orange flower absolute and peach.

According to perfumer Laurent Le Guernec, “I wanted Aromatics Elixir Perfumer’s Reserve to attest to the genius of the original, while yielding a fresh perspective. I hope that in Aromatics Elixir Perfumer’s Reserve, the woman who is addicted to the original will find a new way of experiencing her beloved Aromatics Elixir, while women who thought the original too potent will find this modern homage alluring.”
