Reviews of Noir Patchouli

Patchouli is here in spades, and the quality is nice enough. But: this is so dated, and must have been done a million times before in women's perfurmery. Yes, it's much more feminine than not. Not sure I see the point; certainly little for me.

Very mature smell. Spicy, peppery and soapy. There's nothing sweet or fresh here...definitely from another long gone era.

Smells like a very clean, well-dressed principal or teacher in his 60's.

An excellent and effortless representation of patchouli. The star note is deftly matched to light/cool spices, giving the whole affair a lovely "chilled" vibe: damp and pure patchouli, shimmering cool spice, and a green-ish mossy leather undercurrent.

A great alternative to vintage Givenchy Gentleman, albeit an expensive one. The overall tone is cool and a bit more sleek, but it's a pretty close cousin overall.

Ok. I am the first thumbs down? Really? Ok. I get lipstick and a slightly stinky powdery note. Turns into a rather floral scent. I get a soapy vibe about an hour in. This is in no way a unisex fragrance. IMO this is a women's fragrance from start to finish. I swear my grandmother wore something that smelled like this. Be warned.... Try before you buy.

Upon first spritz, just for a moment or two, I thought "wait... is this mislabeled?!"
Until.... there's the patchouli. And a dirty patchouli it is. Not unlike the smell of opening a fresh bag of potting soil: love it. It walks a strange line of grandma-ness, and in fact, my maternal grandmother wore something that this really resembles.
There's the hint of almost-lemony coriander alright, but the combination of notes forms something almost peachlike, slightly fruity, a little bit floral.
As it dries, I like it more, with the fruitiness mellowing out, and the patchouli and leather taking a humble center stage. By the long drydown, theres a spiciness alongside the sweet, dirty vanilla, patchouli, and leather.
This one relies on suggestions: the patchouli is undoubtedly the star across the board, but the rest of the time, the accompanying notes
transition seamlessly.
I would agree with this being unisex, but I find it starts out slightly more feminine, and becomes less so by the drydown.

Patchouli displayed alongside different companions. It gives of a dusty, aged, feeling and especially so in the opening. Reminiscent of vintage bottles you can find stuffed away at your elders' place. Fun to experience the progression from coriander spicyness into carnal rose into a really musky ending, with pathcouli as your guide. Slightly skanky.

The dry down is my favorite part of this, and it lasts surprisingly long. I can still smell it on my skin 10 hours after application. To me this could do without the skanky vibe, but it's still one of the most interesting and qualitative patchouli scents I've experienced.
