Need a patchouli fragrance.
Do you know any frag that has a strong patchouli note ?
I already have Pi NEO, and it has patchouli from Indonesia. Also lasts for 8 hours.
Yes, I love Givenchy. I am planning on buying all Givenchy scents.
More patchouli frags !
I'll 2nd GG, if you can get the vintage formulation you'll also have a nice animalic beast on your hands. Patchouli by Réminiscence has to be my favorite, it can be found at beautyhabit.com

Can you buy PURE 100% patchouli oil ?
How much does it cost in USD ?
It doesn't cost much.
You may also want to try Patchouly by Profumum.
I haven't sampled this myself but I've heard good things about it
I thought this costs a fortune.
For example, No.1 by Clive Christian is 3300 USD or so, right ?

Borneo 1834 and CdG Patchouli are the ones that I love. I own the first. the second is too expensive and too strong for a FB.
Molinard - Patchouli
It is cheap (+/- $20 for a 3.4 bottle) and lasts all day...
I love patchouli myself...

There was a thread about Etro's Patchouli just the other day. I really like the stuff. It's a slightly more tidy, refined patchouli--earthy but also with herbal and hay notes.

Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

One of my favorite notes, but easy to get bored with it if it remains one-dimensional. My favorites are patchouli blends where it dominates, but there's a lot more going on (and you get to know the complex characteristics of patchouli in different forms, doses, and pairings):
Davidoff Zino and Guerlain Heritage (patch with florals and oriental woods), Patou Sublime (patch with florals and sandalwood), Artisan Voleur de Roses (patch and rose), and Lutens Borneo 1834 (patch with dark cocoa and camphor). For a lighter approach, Balmain de Balmain.
I haven't tried Chanel Coromandel, but that is their meditation on patchouli.
I offer you perfume,

You perfume perfume.

Montale Patchouli Leaves
L'Eau Neuve by Lubin is a beautifully made fragrance that's heavy on patchouli.
Rare, vintage, and niche off-site sales.
Big list of niche splits.
For me a work of fiction exists only insofar as it affords me what I shall bluntly call aesthetic bliss, that is a sense of being somehow, somewhere, connected with other states of being where art (curiosity, tenderness, kindness, ecstasy) is the norm. - Vladimir Nabokov
I just sampled Reminiscense Patchouli pour Homme and, yes this stuff is GOOD. Very dry chocolatey with a touch of aniseed to make it a little cooler.
Molinard: Patchouli. By Killian: Straight to Heaven
+1 for Santa Maria Novella Patchouli
It has that odd comfort of browsing through an occult shop on a rainy day.
Mazzolari Lui & Chanel Coromandel have been my patchouli fixes for the last year or so after a much needed 30 odd year break from the pure oil floating round in the 70s
Lui by Mazzolari
I tested a one ml sample and the patch caught in the back of my throat and choked me.
Very earthy, strong pathchouli in this one. Check it in directory.

Mazzolari's Patcholi (not to be confused with the previously mentioned Lui).
Mazzolari's Patchouli and Lui - both are great and the latter is very animalic!
Givenchy´s Gentleman - preferably vintage
Nicolai's Patchouli Homme - it´s more a rose-scent and very dandy-like but I love it!
L'Artisan Patchouli Patch is nice, but Montale's Patchouli Leaves is my favorite.
As cpk said, Reminiscence Patchouli pour Homme is nice, as well, although the femme version is even better, heavier on the patchouli.
