I love Patchouli so I was hoping for great things here... sadly not. It certainly stays true to a real patchouli that I remember from the 70's. It has the right sort of harsh note, but this one is softened by fruity smells, and I'm not a fan of smelling like a fruit salad. My skin isn't picking up on the florals much. I would have liked some more woodsy tones to balance the fruits. It is zany which I would expect from Lacroix, but a wear with indifference on me.
Very nice indeed; marketed as a feminine scent but feels entirely unisex; well achieved patchouli with fruity notes that take you back to the 90`s. Perfect for men who like Gentleman by Givenchy, not as powerful but more intimate and closer to the skin. Longevity is about 6 hours on my skin for a couple of sprays.
Hurrah, another wonderful patchouli. This has fruity notes so not as dark and brooding as some patch frags, but still lovely. Light enough to wear in the daylight hours unlike some sticky, thick gluey patchouli frags. ( Yum) Interestingly, in the UK this is not selling well at all; as most people buying on the high street abhor patchouli, therefore I picked up 2 bottles for a third of the price that I bought my original bottle. look out for discontinuing??? Lasts approx 6 hours on my skin. I cannot detect any vanilla, which IMHO is a good thing. I dislike vanilla in anything other than desserts. Thumbs up on this as I can finally wear patchouli to work without too many complaints!!!
