This has been a favorite of mine for decades! If the scent has changed, it hasn't been noticeable or offensive to me.. or to my sweetheart of 48 years. He still sits up and sniffs the air when I walk into a room, looking at me with those adorable goo goo eyes! I always layer my fragrances, and I wish Clinique would bring back their body powder in The aromatics elixir fragrance. Truly, use sparingly, as a little goes a nice long way.
