Reviews of Moonlight Patchouli

The perfume of the dandy.
A poetic extravaganza between male taunting, lyricism and virginal lust: a soft velvet of shy roses on an alcoholic body of patchouli, surrounded by the capricious attraction of chocolate. Simply, the perfume of the dandy: I see a decadent room full of melancholic feminine memories. And still, there is no poetry here, there is poetic grace. The perfume of an appearance of sensuality, a refined and greedy joy that combines the elegance of the iris and a subtle powder of rose, under the humble purpose of creating a simple game of carefree eroticism.
This is a musical divertimento, typical of other times: the brilliance and sadness of an easy rhythm, full of nervous and childlike beauty.

Great on my skin. A saturnine vintage rosey-chocolatey patchouli enveloped by a powdery cloud nuanced by iris, cocoa, rose, hay, a tad of saffrony frankincense and suede. Decrepit antiquarians and dodgy workshops comes ideally on mind in their secret dusty intrigues. Van Cleef&Arpels Moonlight Patchouli is like a less gassy and more pretty leathery sort of Tom Ford Noir de Noir (a scent as Histoires de Parfums Rosam jumps partially on mind as well for several of its characteristics). Cocoa, powdery iris and talky amber are almost edible and surely visceral (and animalic/erotic) in a baroquely decadent way. Talky iris masters top and central stages while a rose, complementing soft chocolatey leather, dominates the final suedish "tail". An intrigant take on leather-patchouli with a rosey richly decadent background.
