Designed to be a deeper, richer version of Pure Poison, Pure Poison Elixir
also has amber, vanilla, almond, and cocoa bean. Elixir was just a chemical mess on me. I worry about materials degradation and fragrance evaporation with those balloon atomizers.

I like this version better than the original Pure Poison, it is richer, sweeter, less gardenia and more amber and cacao. The gardenia in the original is just too much for me, overall I do like it, but whenever I wear it I wish the gardenia wasn't so overwhelmingly powerful. This elixir version grants that wish, the gardenia is still there but it is quieter, more muted by the other notes. I find this scent perfect for spring and summer.

The sillage of both the original and the elixir version is quite good, as is the longevity. I Sprayed the tiniest amount this morning around 8AM before work and it is still going strong in the evening when I get home.

My one issue with this perfume is the sprayer, the bottle itself is gorgeous, but the atomizer does not work very well. On top of that I can't leave the atomizer on it, I have to constantly replace it after I use with the screw cap it also comes with, otherwise it evaporates way too quick. The presentation of the atomizer is beautiful, it's a wonderful idea, but unfortunately it does not work in practice...

As with Pure Poison, the main player here is the jasmine. A LOT of heady, gorgeous jasmine. I get jasmine, vanilla, a hint of cacao, and some bergamot, with a hint of sandalwood in the drydown. It is Pure Poison, on steroids. I felt it was much stronger--in fact, a bit too strong for me. It did give me a headache with just a little bit on. It was not an unpleasant smell, so I didn't consider it a 'scrubber', but it was just TOO MUCH.
For some people who are wanting that oomph from their Pure Poison, this is definitely the ticket. Sadly, it is very hard to find, and while the atomizer is adorable, it can't be stored with the atomizer on, due to evaporation. Worth the money if you love jasmine, or if Pure Poison is your favorite. :)
