Aromatics Elixir by Clinique was my signature scent for YEARS, but I find that I reach for Tresor by Lancome more often now.😊

I think that was all of our sig scents in the seventies. 😁 But most people used way too much and nearly knocked others unconscious at times lol

Do you buy the perfume online?  If so, where?



I did purchase it in person, but I moved to a smaller retail market so I have to order it online. I have ordered from Neiman Marcus and from Nordstrom. Check their websites. They have different sizes and price points. Once I made a big mistake and ordered from a perfume website. It was not authentic. I would stay with the reputable, well-known sources.


As a child, I remember my mom sitting at her dressing table applying Shalimar to her pulse points. ❤️

Re: What is your go to eau de perfume here in the United States?

@crawford5153  My top three are always;

 

Nina Ricci, L'air du Temps

 

Dior Poison, purple bottle and

 

Chanel #5

 

I have used loads of other fragrance too. Flowerbomb is very nice. All the Jo Malone selections are wonderful. Any of them.

 

Annick Goutal, Mandragore

 

Moulton Brown, Fiery Pink Pepper

 

Guerlain, Samsara

 

L'aire du Temps came out in the 40's. I was born in the late 50's. I have worn it for every single one of the biggest milestones and accomplishments in my life. The scent is like a well worn glove to me. I always fall back to it. Can you imagine a fragrance that I discovered in my youth and I still am crazy about it? LOL. It smells like powdered carnations to me.

 

My mom had a patch of Sweet Williams as I was growing up. I loved to sit next to them and smell them. It was my happy place and intoxicating smell. L'aire du Temps brings that all back to me.Smiley Happy

DEMETER "Clover"........made in the USA, for everyday.    I also use the "classics" (Joy, Quelques Fleurs, etc., during the cooler months.)

@On ItShalimar is my favorite scent. I love it!

 

I agree 100%. I have been using this for over 40 years. I have tried other scents but I always go back to Shalimar. I agree with you I get many compliments after all these years. As a matter of fact I just got a compliment 2 weeks ago.

If I ever get out to dept stores again, I've got to try this Shalimar.  Is it still made?  

Back in the day it was EL Beautiful.  Then I would combine it with Comptoir Sud Pacifique Vanille Abricot .  An unlikely combo but it worked!  Then Light Blue.  Now it's Tom Ford's Oud Wood and Commodity's Velvet.  They are similar but if I had to choose between the two, I'd go with Commodity Velvet.

Commodity Velvet is part of the Black Collection which includes dark, moody and intense fragrances.

I love Jessica McClintock signature scent.  People actually run up to me on the street and ask me what I am wearing.  It is a light and lovely floral - true British scent.

I wore that back in the 80's and loved it! Didn't know they still made it.
