Reviews of Patchouli Nobile

I find this to be a very nice, well blended and natural smelling patchouli fragrance. Longevity is decent and projection is pretty good, but not overly loud or heavy. I just recently acquired a bottle as a blind buy and couldn't be happier. I think it is very good value for money and my wife likes to wear it as well and it smells great on her.

A very nicely blended patchouli. A classic gentleman's patchouli. Very classy. Powerful yet not in your face. My favourite patchouli and surely one of my favourite ever fragrances.

After getting Javanese Patchouli (JP) this is nice to compare it to. The difference is the wood is more upfront, whereas JP is more wet and earthy. Where they are the same is how wearable they are and can be used in workplaces giving a sophisticated air to the wearer. After awhile the cedar planks blend into the patchouli. The amber and tonka give it a little bit of sweetness but not that much. This is a great Patchouli fragrance even though prefer JP.

Patchouli Nobile is my favorite patchouli fragrance. It is very well blended and the patchouli is sweet and earthy at the same time. When it dries down it turns woody and I feel elegant and sophisticated. The patchouli is there throughout the day and it lasts a long time on me. I also get a LOT of compliments when I wear it.

Another high quality, Italian-made patchouli which to my own embarrassment I didn't really appreciate fully until I wore it many times. Rather discreet for the often unruly patchouli, and perfect for a late October day, with its reminiscences of hay, woods, and barn. Manages to smell completely natural, which is a feat in itself these days in the contrived and synthetic world of perfumery.

This scent stands out from other patchouli-centric scents, not by virtue of some conspicuous originality, but just by the fact that it’s a damn good patchouli fragrance.

It opens with an earthy patchouli tallied by a labdanum that’s sweetened by trace amounts of maltol. It’s rich and substantive, coming across as both boozy and balsamic but with a refined edge to keep it from going too Woodstock. Within thirty minutes, it becomes deliciously dank and the earthy quality is cranked up into a way that nods toward vintage chypres while hitting some melancholic forest floor strides.

As contemplative as it is crabby, Patchouli Nobile is darker, moody take on the genre. It flagrantly merges poignancy with refinement, and the result is a scent that’s tense yet transitional. While the volume is civilized, nobody would doubt that you’re wearing a patchouli fragrance, so an affinity for the note is essential. This is a remarkable, highly resinous patchouli that deserves more credit than it gets.
