    Nombril Immense by Etat Libre d'Orange

    This big belly button is a sweet take on patchouli reminiscent of Parfumerie Generale's Intigrant Patchouli, but with the volume turned down by about 50%. The patchouli is citrus-sweetened and lasts a long time - through the heart - without much development. The base releases some of the sweetness, seemingly because opoponax balances out the sweetness of the citrus and ambrette. I personally enjoy earthier takes on patchouli, and within the ELO line Je Suis un Homme contains a dirtier patchouli/leather accord that I enjoy much more.

    Still, this is a fine composition and but for Intigrant Patchouli this would be a very unique patchouli fragrance. Totally unisex and long lasting, Nombril Immense is worthy of sampling by patchouli fans.
