    Patchouli fragances; favorite ones anyone?

    Hello! I recently had posted a thread relating to tobacco fragrances and wondered if I could explore in Patchouli as well. Would you guys know of any niche fragrances that cover this? I hear L'Artisan produces a rather nice one and so does Histoire Parfums.

    Patchovly by profumum roma is great if you're a fan of patchouli. Also patchouli 24 by le labo is good too a lil too unisex for my tastes

    Murdocks Patchouli is a wonderful scent.

    The patchouli in this is very earthy,light and low key, it never overwhelms but is subtlely blended amongst other notes but is still the spicy heart of the fragrance.


    I can pick up some florals in the midnotes mixing with the earthy spicy patchouli which is probably what is giving the scent that freshness in the opening. In the basenotes you can smell the earthy patchouli on a light bed of Frankincense and I have to say it smells really nice .

    HdP Noir Patchouli is very nice, it has a Smokey minty touch with a little suede. It does have a floral accord that becomes more apparent during drydown, so be aware of that.

    Coromandel is a super smooth patchouli with powdered white chocolate, beautiful stuff.

    L'Instant du Guerlain L'Eau Extreme had a nice patchouli note paired with citrus and cocoa, also very nice.

    Borneo 1834 has more of a dank jungle floor patchouli blended with dark chocolate. Dark and moody and very good.

    Good Suggestions above and I'm sure there will be more great ones coming too.

    1) Mistral Patchouli; Atelier Cologne

    2) Patchouli Leaves; Montale

    3) Borneo 1834; Serge Lutens

    4) Purple Patchouli; Tom Ford

    5) Intrigant Patchouli; Parfumerie Generale

    I actually prefer many of the vintage designers for this particular note, but if it must be niche then Patchouli by Micallef is a good one.

    Reminiscence's Patchouli trio are very good. Straightforward patchouli.

    For a more refined take I prefer Imperial Patchouli - Dior

    Good shout

    I like Intrigant and Patchouli Patch. Have a soft spot for the Molinard also (Intense).

    Imaginary Authors - Bull's Blood is an interesting patchouli fragrance from a fairly new indie/niche house. Worth checking out!

    I have to tread lightly with this note, but Parfumerie Generale's L'Ombre Fauve and Olfactive Studio's Chambre Noire both get it right for me.

    Dior's Patchouli Imperial may not be niche, but La Collection Couturier Parfumeur is not stocked at stores (except in the Dior boutique in Las Vegas here in the US). Searxh out a sniff.

    In addition to what others have already said, I'd recommend Nombril Immense by Etat Libre d'Orange.

    Also, a big +1 to L'Ombre Fauve

    I enjoy both Chanel Coromandel (white chocolate is right...a decadent, sweet gourmand patchouli) & L'Artisan Parfumeur Patchouli Patch (pure raw patchouli experience - quite nice but not for the faint of heart IMO.)
