Yves Rocher SO ELIXIR has not really won me over, though I have a bottle to reach for, should the urge suddenly arise. It never does, to be honest, but I'm not sure why. It's not a bad fragrance, but it's not all that good, either. It's less musky than COMME UNE EVIDENCE, while still being less sweet than many modern chypre perfumes of this style, including Chanel COCO MADEMOISELLE and Van Cleef & Arpels ORIENS.

The problem, I think, is essentially vagueness. SO ELIXIR is no doubt intentionally vague, and I'm sure that the six flaring nostrils which collaborated to produce this perfume were clear about their own ideas on what this composition should be. Nonetheless, in the end, the evidently intended vagueness leaves me a bit apathetic toward SO ELIXIR.

On a good day, I rather like SO ELIXIR. On a bad day, I do not. Usually I reach for the perfumes which do not involve such a roll of the dice, unless I happen to have a bath on the horizon, which means that I'll win either way. On the occasions when SO ELIXIR has not worked on me, it's because the drydown becomes slightly stale smelling. It's not a horrible staleness, as is the case for lots of celebrity sworientals and vandalwood frags, but just moving a bit in that direction. This composition definitely lacks the clarity and precision of COCO MADEMOISELLE and ORIENS, and therein lies the basis for the significant difference in price.
