    Default I love patchouli ! Any suggestions ?

    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.

    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 ?

    Google it.
    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.

    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.

    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,
    More for its pleasure than for yours;

    L'Eau Neuve by Lubin is a beautifully made fragrance that's heavy on patchouli.
    Rare, vintage, and niche off-site sales.
    Splits: O'driu, La Via del Profumo/AbdesSalaam Attar, Nasomatto, Chanel Les Exclusifs, Profumi del Forte, Mona di Orio, Kurkdjian, Slumberhouse.
    New atomizer and decanting supplies for sale.

    Pi NEO is not known for its patchouli so I'm wondering if patchouli is really what you're after.
    But if it is, I'll second petrucijc's rec. on Histoires de Parfums Noir Patchouli. It's one of the more easily wearable patchouli frags IMO.

    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.

    Pricey though.

    Mazzolari's Patcholi (not to be confused with the previously mentioned Lui).

  28. #28

    Default Re: I love patchouli ! Any suggestions ?

    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.

    Pure patchouli oil can be bought dirt cheap, and it's so powerful you can use just a little bit and smell strongly of the stuff.

    Something my mother did for years was to put a few drops of patchouli on the inside pocket of some item of newly-washed laundry before it went into the drier. That way ALL our clothes smelled of patchouli.

    There are legions of patchouli fragrances on the market, but if you just want patchouli, patchouli essential oil is as pure a patchouli as you can get and is widely available. The only reason to pay more is if you want something more complex i.e. other ingredients.

    There's already enough good recommendations in this thread, but I will add that I agree w/ fly777 - this weekend I smelled Nightscape by Ulrich Lang and it's very nice and patchouli prominent. Extremely linear, but it smells solid through and through.

    Wow, you guys really covered the bases. Nearly everything I was thinking was mentioned.

    You may want to try a couple of the Smell Bent scents - Hungry Hungry Hippe (patch and chocolate and such) and Hippy Holidaze (patch with citrus/clementine type thing) if you're looking for a cool new take on super strong patchouli oils.
    I'm a colognosaurus. Rawr!

    I agree with the recommendation of Hungry Hungry Hippies, but only if you're serious about smelling like patchouli and pot brownies. It's a really strong, dark, oily concoction, but if patch and chocolate is your thing, this one takes no prisoners. I haven't smelled the other one mentioned. For more conventional patch fans, I'd say Givenchy Gentleman is a great and timeless choice.

    Arwen, you have a great list there - have you tried L'Heure Defendue from the Cartier les Heures line yet? Bitter cacao, patch, cashmeran - sort of a luxe 1834, quite arresting stuff.
