This is a rough, intense version of patchouli. It broods and simmers in dark earthiness. I donít detect a trace of sweetness Ė it is close to pure patchouli as far as I can tell. Frankly, I donít know why anyone would want to wear this. It is brutal and controlling with its sharp acrid feel and with its uncompromising linearity. I kind of admire its audacity, and I guess this might be appreciated by a true patchouli lover, because it is formidable. But itís too potent for me.
