A different though not worst elixir
I'm wearing this one today and it fits today's winter sunday's sun perfectly.

I love original Aromatics Elixir but I wasn't disappointed by this version in anyway.

I just find this version is smoother, a bit quieter as it stays closer to skin and slightly powdery, adding up as a different though very elegant scent. Still connected to the original while distinct enough to deserve a place, it is a wonderful chypre and a very good ingredient quality one.

It is this cuter version that I go for in the privacy of my home or when I'm going to be among friends. The darker and stronger original fits better working days. Maybe the original is like a perfectly engraved heraldic detail on an armour versus the pretty and detailed embroidery work on the shirt under it which this version can be thought of as.

No improvement
I have to warn you about one thing here: This scent is not worth the hunt if you expect something very different from the original formula. You will enjoy the new edition if you're a perfume vessel collector (lovely bottle indeed), but if it is the sheer fragrance you are after I can tell you that the original formula is much better! This stuff doesn't break new ground, it comes with a slightly toned-down rose and a softer patchouli than the original. The new perfume is a warm and enigmatic scent, quite good if you don't know the original, but not really necessary.
