Juicy Beginning Turns Unpleasant
My review will be partially negative and I certainly don't want to upset anyone who truly loves this perfume, but I've tried it thru hot weather, cool weather and now the much colder nights, and unfortunately, it still doesn't work for me. I'm not one to try a perfume once , say I dislike it and write a review. I realize different days=different results=different reviews. Especially if it's a negative review, I'll try to figure out why.
On me, with my chemistry, Imari ELixir turns to a dirty-smelling perfume that becomes stale and dry as an old wooden crate. The notes sounded wonderful but they didn't come together for me. The blackberry, apple and mandarin combine to give a juicy beginning that lasts a good half hour until the unsettling not pleasant sex-in-a-bottle effect begins and the juiciness of the fruits dissipates. There can be a good sensual sexiness to a perfume and there can be a skankiness. This is the latter for me.
Initial sprays are true to form of juicy blackberry and apple with a hint of rose, juicy, warm and sweet. It's delicious at this stage. On my skin, this perfume turns on me into a harsh, bitter and screechy scent that I don't enjoy wearing. It's just too dirty and dank.
I love patchouli and have worn it for years and years. I realize there are different ways to process patchouli and at times, depending on the way it's "cured", it can smell different. There is one patch that does not agree with me that smells absolutely "dirty" on me. That's where the dirtiness comes from in Imari Elixir for me. I've only noticed this effect in two other perfumes from other perfume houses. Patchouli should be sweet and green. When I read other reviewers use the term "dirty hippies patchouli" I often wonder if they are smelling a patchouli where it has been stored in a manner that gives it a dirty smell. I just wish the term wouldn't be used embracing all hippies that used patchouli as dirty creating a stereotype, because that's absolutely not true. It's how the patch is developed, not the person that's creating the dirty smell.
It may be its formulation, but this is sour and medicinal for me.
The bottle is a nice chunky glass but topped with a cheap plastic cap that screams shabby. That could have been designed with better thought.
Try before you buy.
