    Hindu Grass is in my opinion the most "natural in perception" Nasomatto's issue. The fragrance opens with a blast of aromatic spices-herbs (coriander-clary sage-anise-artemisia??), may be hints of bergamot too, all immediately joined by a sort of almost liturgical prickly "dust" (pepper-a touch of frankincense too?) and by a sheer earthy patchouli. The atmosphere is by soon raucous, untamed, darkly spicy (dry spices) and rooty-earthy (yet barely medicinal). I detect a vague Etro Vetiver's type of "realism" but in this case the standout element is an indie-resinous hippie cedary patchouli "of the forest". This opening is anyway compelling, I detect hints of barely medicinal resins (may be minimal aoud and birch tar-cypress resin) joined with a dry tobacco presence and probably untemed vetiver. The tobacco seems fragrant and plain for a while in the central stage. The patchouli is dominant, the aroma elicits a sort of exotic Etro's vibe (also the sharp Etro's Patchouly jumps more than vaguely on mind indeed) and it unfolds a sort of wild untamed (somehow realistic) earthiness finally soothed by hints of amber-cocoa and woody resins. I guess a secret rose insertion enriches the trail since I suppose sometimes to feel it on skin lingering as a ghost all around. I detect the cocoa yet in the central stage but it is along the dry down that the previous element starts merging with patchouli in order to develop an heavenly smooth chocolatey (dark chocolate-realistic "cacao"-like) patchouli vibe. Another fragrance jumping more than vaguely on mind is L'Artisan Al Oudh and I suppose several animalic patterns could finally be "operating" in the penetrating smooth (but still averagely dry) dark patchouli trail. Probably the best Nasomatto experiment. Great longevity and projection.

    The opening is quite pleasant and nice: patchouli, rose, oak moss, a floral accord, a slight citrus/balsamic feel and also a nice tea/osmanthus note on ambers. Perhaps the whole citrus-balsamic-tea may be due to yuzu, which kind of comprises it all. To be honest all feels quite a bit synthetic, with that peculiar transparent "emptiness" of aromachemicals, but we can forgive that: in fact, at the same time it manages to stay decently vivid and nice, with a pleasant white musks-velvety note and a slightly sticky but sensual roundness, which is kind of interesting. It then turns on an amber-caramel base with tobacco leaves, a mentholated breeze and tea notes, and so it evolves, progressively refreshing and drying, finally settling on a green-balsamic drydown. Longevity is close to skin, but decent. Overall it's... good? Cute? A bit nicer than decent? Surely this smells nice and safe, but on the other side, also too much unoffensive and a bit dull, with absolutely no features that can justify the insane and completely unworthy price tag. Patchouli fans: this may be worth a try, but if you are really into patchouli, there's tons of better ones around.

    This has been my favorite fragrance since I first wore it. It is a beautiful patchouli, soft and warm. Yes, I get the green notes but they are not sharp as too many are for my taste. On me, the initial sharpness fades quickly leaving a just dirty enough patchouli balanced with a warm sweetness.

    The only complaint is the lack of longevity for the price. If my pockets were deeper, I would wear it daily and reapply. Sadly, it is a treat I reserve for the occasional wearing

    Tobacco patchouli

    Not to be confused with La Via del Profumo's Hindu Kush, Hindu Grass is a surprisingly light extrait of patchouli with green and floral nuances including tobacco. The scent is indeed lovely and the tone pitch-perfect, up to the hour mark when the grassy notes run out of steam and all you have left is a lonely patchouli.

    Pros: Gorgeous first hour
    Cons: Shortlived"

    extrait

    Hindu Grass is designed perfectly for the extrait concentration. It's based on a camphorous, thick patchouli. The patchouli is manipulated to have a very strong presence close to the skin but not leave much of a wake. There's not a doubt in the world that this is a patchouli perfume, but it is very well edited. Potent, but not overbearing. Unmistakeable, but not without subtlety. This is exactly where the extrait concentration is killer. Itís a personal message and you must be close enough to look the wearer in the eye to understand her true intent. It's camphorous without smelling like mothballs. It's cool and soil-like without seeming dirty.

    A brilliant modulation of the classic hippie patch. It reads like the hippie chick returning to the fold and going straight. She's seen Paris, and the country club set knows it.

    Heaven in a bottle

    This is the best fragrance I have ever smelt and I have owned all the best. It comes off so perfectly fresh, green, clean with gorgeous patchouli and a perfect cocoa note. This is a 2 to 3 hour frag. If thats all you need you can do no better... the compliments arent casual, they react as if they tripped over somthing, suprised with a straight forward...you smell great.... I am a huge Amouage fan and own a couple of nassomattos...never thought about trying hindu grass..when I smelled it ar scent bar I was amazed....get a sample you will not be disappointed..dont getva sample and you are simply missing out on one of the most under the radar, underrated scents...

    Pros: scent, compliments
    Cons: longevity"
