I love patchouli and like it best in scents that highlight it as the named player. The problem is that my skin seems to eat patchouli "solinote" frags alive. I almost thought I was becoming anosmic to it until I got an observer to confirm that after 10-plus sprays of Keiko Meicheri's Patchoulissime, all they could smell was a trace of patchouli. I guess it's not a bad thing, to have patchouli morph to a warm natural skin scent - I certainly haven't had anything but compliments on it. Do I just need a stronger patch scent? I don't expect something like L'Artisan Patchouli Patch to be loud and proud after a few hours, but even the Reminiscence does this on me.
I have to re-sample the Mazzolari Patchouli - I remember it was dry (to my liking). How about Montale Patchouli Leaves? I hear that's strong and lasting enough to clear out a subway platform at commute hour.
Thanks as always for your input.
