Expectation is a really weird thing. I thougth that the lid of ELIXIR should be covered with bandage because a serious danger was locked up in the bottle. I was wrong.
If Penhaligon's would have a fragrance, only one with the same name as the perfume house has, ELIXIR would deserve the name. It is so typical from them!
My first impression is a season: autumn, or even winter. Chestnut forest, woods, balms, warm yellow-red-brown leaves on the ground. It took more than one hour till I torn myself away from the picture of roasted chestnuts and arrived to the heaven of nutmeg. The whole composition is ruled by nutmeg seed, a very pleasant and comforting scent.
My soul is satisfied and preparing for winter.
Longevity - at first I also had problem with it, but I have got only a sample vial without sprayer(and longing for a full bottle).
