Min New York was having a sale, so I ordered a bottle of Penhaligon's Elixir. Unfortunately, I got an email a day later, saying they coudn't ship it. I called the store, and was told that it was out of stock, and that they were no longer going to be carrying Penhaligon's. As I could substitute something else for the Elixir, I asked for Amaranthine, which I do really like, and it was available. My bottle just arrived today. Although I do really like Amaranthine, it may be a bit too feminine for me to pull off, so I may give it to someone for Christmas. I have almost a month to decide.
I must say, I am not nuts about Penhaligon's packaging, with those bows n all.
After a two-month wait, my bottle has finally come! It was on backorder forever. I was just getting ready to plunk down another $300, as the 30 ml bottle was in stock. But then, I got home and there was a note on my door that a package had been delivered.
I'm kind of afraid to open it, since there is talk of reformulation. I was able to find my teensy sample from a few years back, so I should be able to compare the two. Hope it's as good as I remember. Fortunately, I didn't break the $300 threshold in buying this, as I got a 20% discount! If I had gone beyond $300, there pretty much would be no turning back.
