Elixir Eau de Toilette

  • Created in 2008, Elixir opens with eucalyptus and the harmonising hot spices of cardamom, cinnamon and mace. The heart notes massage the senses with the dark magic of Turkish rose and jasmine and a twist of orange. Heat and smoke rise from the base and incense and woods mingle with the earthy resins and spices. A touch of vanilla and the hypnotic Tonka bean complete the atmospheric dry-down. Opulent and daring, mysterious and complex, Elixir echoes Hammam Bouquet, created by William Penhaligon in 1872.

    • Elixir, The Art Of Pampering Yourself
    • by Richard Gilles
    • Elixir will give your senses a voluptuous, contemporary trip to the hamam thanks to spicy and woody notes enhanced by Turkish rose.
      Would you recommend it? : Yes

    • A Spicy, Sensuous Favourite!
    • by Ruth
    • I fell in love with the spice and warmth of elixir. I have a tendency to prefer the more woody, masculine scents and elixir fits the bill. It mellows in the day, but is strong enough at night to feel 'special'. A classic.
      Would you recommend it? : Yes

    • Elixir Eau de Toilette Review
    • by Mary
    • I love how Elixir is not too 'girly' and that it smells so exotic. It not too fancy for everyday, but also not too pedestrian for a special occasion!
      Would you recommend it? : Yes

    • Spicy, Soft And Warm
    • by anonymous
    • Elixir is aptly named, a spicy, lightly smoky blend that is mysterious and warm, but with a certain clarity from the herbal notes. It opens with cardamon, cinnamon and incense, with eucalyptus giving a much needed brightness. The floral heart adds depth, while the tonka and rosewood base give a richness to the blend. Classy, elegant and sophisticated without being old fashioned.
      Would you recommend it? : Yes

    • Elixir Eau de Toilette Review
    • by anonymous
    • Can only agree with David (June) - it's been my 'seasonal' choice since I first found it: use from Michaelmas 'til Candlemas , or even during Lent (adjust dates according to prevailing weather conditions....) then return to your usual seasonal choice for day-to-day use (last Wimbledon has seen me out of [defunct?] Raquets)
      Would you recommend it? : Yes

    • For The Children Of The Night...
    • by Kate
    • If Bram Stoker were alive today, he'd wear Elixir. It smells of vampires! Deliciously tempting, immortal, seductive, elegant, gothic, carnal. The bottle is almost sinful too with it's blood-red bow about its throat. I wear this when I need to set pulses racing.
      Would you recommend it? : Yes

    • Magic In A Bottle
    • by David
    • This is a beautifully evocative fragrance which still retains its seasonality. I can only wear it in autumn and winter and only WANT to wear it then: it conjures up dark days, gloomy nights, burning wood smoke, a bath in candlelight, Christmas spice, a visit to midnight mass. It is mystical, spiritual and intoxicating: you breathe it in like incense and it draws you into its magic. Yes, it is lugubrious, but it is also hauntingly sexy, almost profane. Dare I say it, like being seduced in a church?
      Would you recommend it? : Yes

    • Not Just For Men!
    • by Sandra
    • Don't be put off by the outdated "male fragrance / female fragrance" labelling this is a rich and exotic fragrance which gets many favourable comments whenever I wear it! For me, Elixir is my favourite Autumn in a bottle, and I would love to see more items in the collection body lotion perhaps, or hand cream.
      Would you recommend it? : Yes
