(top notes) orange, neroli, jasmine and amber; (mid-notes) patchouli, nougat and vanilla; (basenotes)sandalwood and vetiver.
A delicious patchouli you can really sink your teeth into!
Woodsy, dirty, dark, sweet and chewy. I love it.

I just got this wonderful gem in the mail today at work. Wow!! this is the best patchouli fragrance ever made. I sprayed some on my wrist and it delights my senses. All my co-workers were asking me what it was with just ONE spray. It is very, very strong so 1-2 sprays should be enough. The patchouli with the vanilla and nougat make this fragrance the perfect gourmand. This is a fragrance Stevie Nicks would have laying around in the "Gypsy" video. It reminds me of that.
I bought this blind ... as it is impossible to find anywhere. For those of you who are fans of rich, dark, and sweet fragrances ... here she is. I usually shy away from such frags but for some reason love this. It starts off a bit strong as you would expect from an eau de parfum, but soon mellows into a lush rich patchouli/chocolate/vanilla mix. Sillage is fair, but it has nice lasting power (about 6 hours on me). As most others alluded to, this is not your hippy-ish patchouli but rather a rich, smooth, well constructed fragrance that you won't smell on every other Joe passing by. Interestingly enough, the other fragrance that sort of reminds me of this take on patchouli is Jacomo Rouge (albeit a bit brighter out of the gate). I found a 'tester' of this for around $21 online ... how can you beat that? Well worth the investment.
Very good take on patchouli mix for the price. I get a flavor of Muglar's AMen minus the tar notes, though Molinard's Patchouli Intense does focus heavy on the patchouli aspect of this fragrance. I have to admit helps cut down on the scent becoming overly sweet like AMen. Puzzles me why Molinard did not market this as unisex it's very masculine by today's standards of what is on the market for men and feel most women would shy away as finding this too masculine.
A Dark Sweet Patchouli Scent
A sweet dark chocolate like liquor with patchouli is what I'm mainly picking up. It is rich and gourmondish and smells very nice if you like dark sweet scents. Underneath this is a dose of sandalwood supporting the star of the show notes.
I get about seven hours longevity and projection is pretty good.
