Reviews of Mon Patchouly

Essentially a nice patchouli perfume with a slug of those incredibly basic men's designer "grape drink" topnotes on top. Calling it jasmine is generous and potentially misleading: this is a patchouli designed to appeal to fans of mass market men's scents.

That being said, it works. I was REALLY ready to pan this, but somehow the blending is just perfect, and the fruity topnotes combine with the dry, grassy, herbal patchouli in a way that creates a comforting familiarity while also amplifying its complicated undertones. The whole thing dries down to a jammy, musky chocolate that I enjoyed way more than expected.

I usually hate expensive scents that use familiar designer topnotes to dumb themselves down, but this is a rare win - thumbs up!

I have to agree with others, Lot of Jasmine, not much Patchouli. There is a sharpness here, but where is the Pathouli?

Cloying opening, a slap of aldehydes and powdery jasmin notes, with a dense, metallic, milky feel and a balsamic touch (that kind of plastic, ozonic balsamic mood as in Fahrenheit 32). I do not get the patchouli at all, a get a tiny bit of oak moss – clean, plain, synthetic - on jasmin, which is perhaps the most prominent note. After a while the metallic fades and evolves into a more soapy note, still cloying but at least a bit more powdery and tolerable. Overall it's fairly poor, unpleasant and confused, with an everlasting persistence and an uselessly misleading name.

I was so full of expectation for this fragrance after having read the positive reviews of eminent Basenoters, I was sure I would have enjoyed it at first sniff. Smooth jasmine and patchouli, what’s there not to love?!
I was very disappointed discovering that Mr Monegal’s Patchouly was turning out to be… the richer, heavier sister of L’Artisan Parfumeur Fleur De Liane!
White flowers high on lactones on an almost imperceptible patchouli, jarring with an insistent metallic, (sour) milky note that lasts forever and to which I must be hypersensitive as it prevents me to perceive much else. The development is negligible and, where the olfactory sagacity and irony typical of Bertrand Duchaufour compositions save FdL from being fastidious, the linearity and gravity of this fragrance condemn it to be a real scrubber for me!

Do not be misled by the name for this is not about patchouli as it is about a perfectly unisex floral, the blending so immaculate it's hard to tell where the jasmine ends and patchouli begins. Call it 'jasminouli' or 'patchmine' or whatever, it smells really nice. Unfortunately the linearity of it all gets old fast and reminds me somewhat of elevator music. It tunes me out.

A very sophisticated scent, I like the amber but I keep smelling powder. The jasmine adds a nice contrast. I don't get patchouli much...it's fleeting.
