Reviews of White Patchouli


A perfectly balance between tradition and modernity is one of the best characteristics in TOM FORD fragrances in my mind.Regardless this EDP is not as Special&Seductive as BLACK ORCHID but for me this chypre floral is still both Strong and Wildly Alluring but not in a decadent way. Fresh,Chic,Subtle, Sensuous,Captivating,Exotic and Laudable.

It opens with fresh and dizzy by bergamot cool peony,elegant rose and jasmine reminiscent an imaginary bouquet of fresh flowers while the base gains sensuality and warmth from Patchouli and evoking memories of Hot Parties because it makes a unexpectedly intimate impression and it is also impressive when you are alone.

BLACK ORCHID dry down has more depth and seduction than this.WHITE PATCHOULI is perfect in the rainy is not absolutely feminine and i highly recommend this EDP for a Self Confident character who don't afraid of competition above all everybody who likes Patchouli scent and also A must have for those who likes all the types of perfumes.


Longevity?+6 hours on my skin.

Itís definitely a patchouli, but itís patchouli that's ashamed to announce itself as such, instead stylized under a series of lens flares and glimmering white lights. It has a draped, gauzy feel thatís a tad powdery, and it creates an olfactory image of cream and tan textures and fabrics. Thereís a touch of rose peeking through, but barely enough to be identified as such. The overall feel is sort of a hazy, soft-focus, and dreamy kind of scent, but itís a bit let down by a miserable department store precooked bases. All in all, a polite balsamic thing over a textbook synth-sandalwood base. Unambitious in all possible ways, but a solid enough offering for someone wanting a light, non-Woodstock patch.

White Patchouli is decadent. This fragrance just makes my senses go wild. Patchouli is my second favorite scent, the first is vetiver. This fragrance combines the patchouli with white flowers but in a way that is not to girly. It smells elegant and sophisticated. I think it should be classified as unisex. I wear it now and then and when I do, the compliments just keep coming.

This smells heartwarmingly close in composition to Strange Invisible Perfume's captivating Lyric Rain, but doesn't exude the same weary melancholy. It is a spicy, very natural patchouli supported by a touch of bright bergamot and a soft tea rose heart. There is also a spicy melange of an accord that comes off as 'white pepper potpourri.' An excellent and simple spiced white floral with decent longevity and quality ingredients.

Sharp white flowers and spicey patchouli

The patchouli isn't center stage. White flowers, sharp amber and spices balance out the earthy patchouli. There is a citrus floral sharpness here that I like.

Jasmine Patchouli HoneyRose

Serendipity! The best way to discover fragrances.

I went to the local Sephora to test another Tom Ford "women's" fragrance, Black Orchid. All that I had read about it suggested it might be a nice masculine summer scent. NO! All I got was overpowering Gardenia, the most feminine of all notes to my nose...but that's another story.

Right next to it was this beautiful bottle of White Patchouli. Not wanting to waste my trip, I spritzed a bit on both wrists...heavenly! Like ascending through the clouds to the gates of heaven. A lost scent from the Garden of Eden?

If only the promise of that opening had been kept all the way through the drydown. I imagined a rich, chocolaty, resinous drydown. Instead, it turned to...glue? Yes, that's it. Glue. Tragic, really. This was one that I wanted to love, but it is a shallow beauty.

Opening: Patchouli and Jasmine, two of my favorites. The patchouli is a relatively clean version, and the jasmine is subtle. There are some honey accords as well.

Middle: Patchouli, Jasmine, and...ROSE! Not the synthetic, freeze-dried "rose" of Black Oud, but a solitary yellow rose next to a still pond. I

Dry Down: Glue.

Projection and and Longevity are both very good.

Pros: wonderful opening notes
Cons: gluey drydown"
