    Simply a great and well balanced (averagely dry) earthy patchouli with some cedar in the mix in order to keep on plain the earthy opacity and with a slightly boozy/eliotropic amber plus a white sandalwood in order to lay down a bed of soft (moderate) sweetness and comforting powder. A touch of white florals gives an ethereal vibe to the composition and hints of citrus (a touch of bergamot) set the right amount of classicism. The smell is fairly earthy-angular in the right way, aristocratic, spicy, never aggressive and finally (slightly) talky. Really an high quality patchouli on the side of the decadent Patchouli Noir Il Profvmo, Etro Patchouly, the great Patchouly Indonesiano by Farmacia S.s Annunziata, Mazzolari and the other famous patchoulies around.

    All natural not fooled around Patchouli
    it does not have the oily greasy synthetic
    feel in most patchouli perfumes it's dry
    and comfortable to your skin i just like
    the way the Sandalwood opens strongly it mixes beautifully with the patchouli dries warmly with amber with milky note of benzoin and dries to an powder nuances of vanilla, Labdanum sweetish
    in smell ends this fragrance with the patches of musk.

    this is my favorite scent from the patchouli series not oily nor synthetic
    just comfortable to wear.

    Reminscence Paris' patchouli soliflore is pretty much the gold standard of patchouli perfumes. The raw earthiness of the patchouli note is present but balanced by a hint of amber and a touch of sandalwood. It's certainly sweeter with less of the dirt/soil aroma of say, Farmacia SS Anunziata's Patchouly Indonesiano (my favorite patchouli) but far less sweet then the almost vanillic Patchouli Leaves (Montale). There's a radiant quality to Reminscence by which one can simultaneously detect different facets of the patchouli note at the same time. For a little more ooomph (sillage, longevity, etc.) try the eau de parfum "Elixir" version.

    Not that I should have to say this, but if you don't love patchouli you should probably avoid this perfume. Thumbs up.

    Patchouli with rum! That's what came to mind the first second i sprayed it on a kleenex tissue.Another kleenex waisted?Not at all!The whole patchouli theme is supported with a fine, elegant candy/rum-like thing which to me creates a very feminine and even kind of sexy combination.I guess if you are one of these southern,mediterranian or arabic types this will suit you so very well.Once again what makes it really good is simplicity and "everything in the right place"-style.


    But wait till you try their Elixir de Patchouli!

    Reminiscence Patchouli is the ultimate hippie patchouli scent crafted into a perfectly useable fragrance. The patchouli is very potent but of extremely high quality. This is the strongest patchouli of any I've tried and one spray judiciously applied over several spots is certainly enough juice to give you a powerful presence. The description states it is blended with cedar, sandalwood, tonka bean and amber and you do feel more than smell a slight sweet background to the patchouli that is more noticeable on the drydown than initially. The cedar pumps up the intensity a bit and sandalwood softens the mid notes. There is also a very green grassy note that weaves into the patchouli odor that may in fact be one of the types of patchouli used but it definitely has a raw grassy green patchouli feel. Other ultra strong patch fragrances often leave hard edges and sharp corners as part of the raw patchouli experience (Etro or SMN) but this fragrance has a very smoothe transition from beginning to end. A fine creation. Reminiscence is bold but ethereal and will undoubtedly be a holy grail fragrance for the devoted patchouli fan. In my opinion this is equal to Mazzolari Patchouli or Fragrancia Annunziata's Patchouly Indonesiano for pure patchouli perfection.

    This is a very sweet ambery mix. Very masculine, so I share this with my husband. Closer to hippie patchoulis that any other I have smelt, but for me this is a good thing, although I know some would find this offputting. I like this as I cannot detect any vanilla, which seems to be included in lots of patchouli fragrances, and for me makes them sickly. I like to think of Jim Morrison wearing this in the desert, however this is just pure fantasy!!
