    Default Dry dusty masculine patchouli ?

    with the addition of coffee / cocoa is cool too, but not a must.

    I have Borneo 1834 on the way

    Already tried Coromandel which is too fem for me.

    anything else?

    Borneo is a good call for a more complex composition with cocoa.
    A couple other possibilities: Etro Patchouli, which is a very dry patch that highlights the herbal and dry grassy facets. And L'Artisan's Patchouli Patch is another dry one but it has an immortelle note--that really interesting floral fenugreek/brown sugar note. Both are really well done.

    When I read the words "masculine patchouli", the one that comes up is Mazzolari Lui

    Lui is great stuff, and masculine for sure; seemed quite sweet to my nose, though.

    Profumum Patchouly and Farmacia S.S. Annunziata Patchouli Indonesiano are two excellent patches, but you REALLY have to like patchouli to like these two. They're both as dry as Borneo, if one defines dry as the opposite of sweet. Both are frightfully expensive, though, and neither have the cocoa note that's so distinctive in Borneo. Available from Luckyscent.

    p.s. Good choice on Borneo!

    How about 1740 Marquis de Sade? The name certainly fits the bill, but this is a surprisingly enjoyable scent.

    Top: bergamot and davana sensualis

    Middle: patchouli, coriander and cardamom

    Base: cedar, elemi, leather and labdanum

    If you have Borneo 1834 on the way, I say just enjoy that! It's everything that you could want in a dry dusty masculine patchouli.

    Dry dusty and masculine sounds like Habit Rouge to me, but I'm not sure about the patchouli.

    Molinari also has a bit of the chocolate note you desire, and it's a great value (read: dirt cheap). Definitely worth a try.

    Lorenzo Villoresi Patchouli is both masculine and bone dry. Given how you've described what you're looking for, I think you really should sample this one. I have to disagree with the recommendation of Patchouli Patch. I find that one leans towards the feminine side of the unisex spectrum, at least on me.

    Nightscape by Ulrich Lang is a very dusty dry patchouli but it is just as much about the sheer musk in the drydown too. It's a patchouli/light musk scent. Very dry and kind of dusty. M/MInk by Byredo is very dry and inky but with a beautiful dry patchouli note. To describe it by comparison: M/MInk is to Patchouli fragrance, what Encre Noire is to Vetiver fragrance.

    I've recently enjoyed Liz Zorn's Massive Patchouli..kinda reminds me a little of Tauer's LDM, altho a little more patch prominent. Really good stuff.
