        I am a loyal Aromatics user. I smelled it for the first time when I was 20 and I have been wearing it ever since - I'll be 54 in a few months. I am a 3-time cancer survivor (breast cancer in 1997 and 2006, and skin cancer in 2014) and Aromatics Elixir has a positive effect on my overall physical and psychological well being. I did notice a slight change in my last bottle and I was very disappointed. I hope you can change back to the original formula. Aromatics Elixir is the only gift I need and I request it for Valentines Day, Mothers Day, my Birthday, my anniversary, and Christmas!

        I have used AE since the 70�s. Within that time I have purchased scores of bottles and gift sets. I always received the nicest compliments acknowledging the fragrance. It was long lasting, never overpowering and was a classic fragrance that was an integral part of my daily routine. The last few bottles I�ve noticed something wasn�t right. I kept buying - thinking I got a bad batch or, perhaps, my body chemistry had changed. Going to your website to see if I could get some insight, I see I�m not alone and it ISN�T me who has changed, but AE. Why? You had a devoted following and an amazing fragrance. Can we just chalk this up to another corporate blunder, i.e. �New Coke?� At least they had the good sense to acknowledge their customer�s comments and correct their mistake. Hopefully, Clinique will as well. If someone from corporate actually reads the feedback section, you couldn�t miss the reaction. Until then, I feel like I�m saying good bye to an old friend.

        Perfect fragrance not too overpowering

        By 

        from Johannesburg, South Africa

        Comments about Clinique Aromatics Elixir Body Wash:

        I have used this product for many years and now it has been discontinued in South Africa. I can only get it in gift packs which does not suit me, therefore I wish to buy directly from the USA.

        THIS IS THE STINKY VERSION

        By 

        from Montreal, QC

        Comments about Clinique Aromatics Elixir Body Wash:

        After having to harass customer service several times, they finally admitted that they changed the scent. However, the lady at my local Clinique counter suggested I buy the Premier version. Guess what? It smells like the Aromatics Elixir I have been using for the last 25 years. So ladies, if you liked the old version, buy Aromatics Elixir Premier and NOT this version. Hey Clinique, here's an idea, make your customers happy and put t he Aromatics Elixir Premier scent in the regular Aromatics Elixir spray bottles and get rid of that dark brown smelly version you've been trying to sell us for the last six months or so!

        Ready to purchase new bottle

        By 

        from Elk Grove, CA

        Comments about Clinique Aromatics Elixir Body Wash:

        I like many others have been using AE as my signature fragrance and get sooo many compliments on how good I smell. People can identify me when I walk into the room without seeing me. After reading these recent reviews I have decided not to purchase online. I will go to the store so I can smell it before buying. If the formula has changed I will be so disappointed as I like many others have been using AE for over 30 years

        CLINIQUE PLS RELEASE ORIG. VERSION

        By 

        from USA

        Comments about Clinique Aromatics Elixir Body Wash:

        Similar to how some other brands have a mass market "updated" version of a classic fragrance while also having a usually more potent "original" version available in select retailers or online only, CLINIQUE I ask that you do this with Aromatics. Coming from a 24 year old, I prefer the old version too.

        WHY change a good thing?

        By 

        from Chicago, IL, USA

        Comments about Clinique Aromatics Elixir Body Wash:

        For over thirty years I have been a good Clinique customer and using Aromatics Elixir as my signature fragrance. I recently purchased a new bottle and was soooooo disappointed with the change in the fragrance. I would always get compliments from strangers on my fragrance and can now understand WHY I don't receive them any longer. This new stuff stinks! How disappointing that it has changed, because that was the only fragrance that worked so well with my body chemistry. Please do your customers a HUGE FAVOR and bring the original fragrance back! Thank you!

        Very disappointed

        By 

        from Kinder, LA 70648, USA

        Comments about Clinique Aromatics Elixir Body Wash:

        It took me a very very long time to find the perfect perfume for me and I did with Aromatics. I loved it when people would pass by me and tell me how I smelled so good. For mother's day one year I received a lot of Aromatics so I haven't had to buy any in a while. I recently ran out and had read the reviews about how the scent changed and I hoped it wasn't true. Unfortunately is has changed. I'm so disappointed. I want my original Aromatics back please.

        I've been wearing Aromatics for years and routinely receive compliments from complete strangers. The perfume is not too heavy and is unique on every person.

        Aromatics Elixir perfume has changed. We all know it is now cheap and horrible. This seems to be the same wonderful scent. Thank God!!!!!!

        I so miss the old Aromatics....

        By 

        from New York City

        Comments about Clinique Aromatics Elixir Body Wash:

        I have been a loyal clinique customer since the mid 80s, and a big part of my 'spend' with Cliniique has been regular purchases of AE - large bottle for home, and always a couple of small purse-size going for handbag and office. Like many others, I used to get complimented frequently and regularly on the AE scent. Like many others have already commented, I also noticed that something was not 'quite right' about a year ago. At first, I blamed it on my body and menopause hormones. For a while I stopped wearing it. I so wanted to go back to AE, which I have - but it is not the same, and I have started searching for my new signature scent. The best way i can describe it is that it has lost the deep woody/spicy mix that was so unique and now is more reminiscent of a powdery scent - almost like Chanel 5. I am surprised, and quite disappointed, that Clinique has chosen to ignore so many comments. I guess Clinique is now very focused on going after the next gen buyers at the expense of those who have been loyal customers for decades.
