Description

With the richest, smoothest, creamiest, most intense fragrances coming from white flowers; not highly coloured ones. The patchouli in White Patchouli is kept rather sleek, proper and clean, but it has a ruling position as the name implies. There is a medicinal quality in the opening of this fragance that makes it very interesting, like it belongs to an old fashioned pharmacist or herbalist´s shop. It is also very floral, in this odd, aseptic way, and, I agree, kind of mushroomy. Peppery, bitter, dry zest, dry undergrowth, turpentine-like notes fuse together with luminous flowers (peony and a burning jasmine) on a bed of honeyed tobacco and a patchouli, that may be hard to recognise on this garments. My former review was all about my hatred towards this perfume but now,after more than a year,I'm growing a love for patchouli,not in all cases,but at least I don't hate it anymore when it's well done,so suddenly in the middle of night I remembered my long time forgotten bottle of white patchouli and decided to give it another sniff I bought a 5ml decant of this just to test it out since i don't usually do patchouli centered scents very often. I just ran out of my beloved Orchid Soleil and since i can't be bothered selling a kidney to replace it right now id instead give this quirky little number a try since its slightly more affordable and not yet discontinued.

Well, it's, to me, actually more of a rose centered fragrance. With a slightly bitter base giving it that chypre feeling.White patchouli is a year round fragrance,better for mild weather since it can be overwhelming in heat For any content that you submit, you grant Space NK a perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free, transferable right and license to use, copy, modify, delete in its entirety, adapt, publish, translate, create derivative works from and/or sell and/or distribute such content and/or incorporate such content into any form, medium or technology throughout the world without compensation to you.

Then add the fact that I swoon over Coromandel (=very prominent, sharp patchouli) and then, somebody reviewed it as clean, sexy, very Prada like - a once upon a time staple in my collection (Prada Amber: patchouli & amber based). As soon as I sprayed it,I could see why I disliked it,that very sharp opening of bergamot and coriander,while fleshy patchouli and floral sharpness was easy to detect through it.still I'm not fond of the opening part and it smells somehow like cheap-smelling handmade perfume oils which were popular in past where I live,but... This is quality, refined and sophisticated. I'm just not sure it's me. It's 75% spicy, and 25% white florals IMO. It stung my nostrils and the first time made me almost gag, so strong it was (and mind you, I am not afraid of huge florals, that I frequently wear, let me name Quelques Fleurs, Joy, Jardins de Bagatelle, all very prominent). Yes,there is a but here.a huge but...but drydown which doesn't force me wait for a long time,is something I happen to love now!it smells heavenly and I find it one of the most artistically done patchouli scents I have ever had pleasure of smelling

Latest Comments

I posted a question about patchouli fragrances in the consulting thread relatively soon, tested some of the recommendations there and found the great Taklamakan. Since White Patchouli, probably by chance, was not recommended to me, he was still out of my mind. I did not enjoy much. it is really about skin chemistry, so you must test it before buying; on the good side, it had a tremendous lasting power - on my skin-eating perfume - so dab a tiny bit as it will last forever. And I'm not sure about it... The patch isn't HUGE or hippie/sweaty it's just spicy. This is very masculine IMO. Or else it's def a NIGHT scent on the right woman-- either a cute hippie girl or a very powerful, sexy confident business woman... lol. (I'm never THAT serious when I say who should wear a perfume. Anyone and everyone should wear exactly what they enjoy!)
