In June 2012, the popular singer Shakira presents a new scent called Elixir. The fragrance is inspired by her most sensual, exotic movements. Elixir is a "powerful blend of all her dreams that will take you on a journey into a hypnotic world wrapped in desire and Shakira’s most powerful femininity."

The composition of Elixir fragrance opens with fresh and bright orange blossom and a touch of exotic and spicy accords of black pepper, leading to the heart where intense floral notes mesh. Freesia and peony dominate the heart, with juicy and velvety peach to add a fruity flavor. The base notes are sweet and balsamic with styrax, brown sugar, white cedar and musk. A warm tone in the base is provided by amber, which gives the impression of a second skin and affects the stronger attraction.

The bottle of the new fragrance is created in the spirit of old times, inspired by ancient elixir bottles. Its design combines East and West, delicate and powerful. Just like Shakira herself, Elixir was created to overcome the culture of the epoch, and highlight its timeless and multi-ethnic nature. The outer packaging vividly describes Shakira’s  steps and passions.

The design of the outer package is signed by the artist from Colombia,  Catalina Estrada, who shows an artistic vision of Shakira’s femininity and romantic side. Her artistic drawings resulted in an explosion of shapes, colors and details that lead us into an imaginative and magical world of the new fragrance by popular Shakira.

The range of the collection includes 50 and 80 ml Eau de Toilette, with spray deodorant in 150 ml. If you want to experiment, find the bird of paradise that has escaped and is hiding somewhere in the website of Shakira , When found, apply the exotic and magical powers of the new fragrance Elixir by Shakira and win a bracelet, a dress worn by Shakira or a perfume with Shakira's autograph!

Sorry, I kind of hate the flacon! It's proportions are simply not right, the neck is too long compared to the bottom, don't like it.


At last... A perfume by celebrity that is not floral or sweet or even oriental! This is a total unique! For someone as exotic as her. And the bottle looks so vintage. I just fell in love... Divine!


I just adore her:I really can't say anything bad about her to be honest.I wasn't a HUGE fan of her first 2 scents but the notes in this sound wonderful-pretty bottle too.


Judging by her last two fragrances and how pretty I think she is, I'd buy it blind. The bottle doesn't appear to be one I'd display, kinda J'adore-ish, but one never knows!


Nice Notes, very exotic - I'd love to try this.
I also LOVE her skirt: Its beautiful. Its also a nice commercial: something different from the usual sexed-up advertisements. Way to go Shakira! :)
