Scent of a Songstress
Written by Sarah A. Freiseis
International singer Shakira channels an exoticness often associated
with her own personal image for the new fragrance Elixir. This
scent captures a worldly influence, having been inspired by a Moroccan
sandscape at sunset. A sensual story of femininity unfolds as the opening
notes of Neroli flower and white pepper provides freshness. The flavor is enriched
with a floral heart of freesia and peony infused by ‘apricot skin’
accord. A little heat is added when elements of benzoin and sugar cane, mixed
with white cedar wood, musk and warm amber combine to create the bottom note.
Elixir by Shakira is available for purchase at Kohl's and Sears retailers at price
points of $29 - $36 USD, depending on size.
