Add a few saffron threads and some Spanish pimento (better than paprika).
And a splash of cognac or brandy.
Garnish with bacon. When you make it yourself it's sautéing the veggies in bacon fat which adds flavor. Simmer with fresh thyme as well which will add freshness.

A trick that we use is adding a can of minced clams drained, we use a little bit of cream or half and half in the soup, tabasco, bacon bits and top with a pat of butter delicious!
( if your soup is too thick thin with a bit of water .)
