    This is actually called "Vrai Patchouli" ("Real Patchouli" in French) on the bottle. They're not kidding, because that's exactly what this is: patchouli straight up. Because there is no amber or vanilla to sweeten this up and water it down, it smells very dry and woody, not heavy. Basically this smells like raw patchouli oil cut with a lot of perfumer's alcohol, so you can spray it on yourself without dying.

    If you prefer oriental patchoulis like those by Mazzolari, Bois 1920 or Montale, you might not like this. There's no sweetness at all in Melvita's offering, and it's not a sillage machine like those heavy syrupy patchoulis. Melvita has created a simple and discreet patchouli for people who aren't afraid of patchouli's inherent earthiness. My only complaint is its extreme simplicity, which makes it a little dull.

    Though listed here as a feminine, due to its stark dryness I think this smells more like a masculine scent than a feminine. However, women should not hesitate to check this out. The price sure can't be beat.

    MY RATING: 7.5 /10
