"How does one describe femininity?

It's fullness. Radiance.
An undulating vibe, a fluid smile.
It's light.
It's what makes a woman. The sum of her infinite parts.
Her limitless emotions. It's fireflies and clouds.
Shade and light. Sun and scent.
It is obvious and unmistakable:
it's a perfume.

Yves Rocher introduces its new fragrance dedicated to a successful, self – conscious, mature and sophisticated woman. Nectar of flowers, woods, fruits and balms, So Elixir shouts femininity in its ‘plenitude and radiance, like an intense vibration, like liquid laughter’…

The gently curved bottle comes in a package revealing the white floral accord

So Elixir 1

So Elixir is composed by three famous noses. This composition is concentrated on the notes of white flowers laid upon a woody base. It includes aromas of bergamot, Damask rose, jasmine, incense extract, patchouli essence and Tonka bean.

To summarize, Marie Salamagne proposed the main idea of a white floral accord faceted by patchouli in order to create a "spark" between the two ingredients

Olivier Cresp worked on the structure and volume of the main accord bringing verticality to the perfume

And Jacques Cavallier wanted to add luminosity by working on fresh and inviting top notes.

top note
Bergamot, Frankincense

middle note
Sambac, Jasmine, Damask Rose

base note
Patchouli, Atlas Cedar, Tonka Bean

The goal for the perfume was to capture ultra femininity.

So Elixir is available as 50 ml EDP (and 30 ml in Europe only), along with 200 ml body milk and 200 ml perfumed shower and bath gel.

New : Eau de toilette, An elixir of femininity
So Elixir 2

A new transparent light emanates from SO ELIXIR Eau de Toilette. A fresh and radiant breeze of femininity reveals your sensuality on a warm summer day. A more radiant freshness, a more delicate floral heart than the Eau de Parfum.

Created by three exceptional perfumers at Firmenich, Marie Salamagne, Olivier Cresp and Jacques Cavalier

A fresh and audacious start with the Bergamot and Pink Berry essences

A more delicate light emanates from the floral heart made up of Rose and Sambac Jasmine essences

Both the Patchouli essence and the Tonka bean absolute, which are inseparable from SO ELIXIR’s signature, find a clearer and slightly less gourmand balance than in the Eau de Parfum.

Feminine and sensual, the new SO ELIXIR Eau de Toilette is perfect for the first days of spring.
