    Default Best patchouli based, or single note fragrance?

    I'm looking to sample some patchouli based fragrances. I'd like the patchouli to be dominating the entire length of the fragrance, though I don't mind if a few other scents are blended in there as well.

    I'd like some opinions on what to start sampling.

    Thanks in advance!

    Givenchy Gentlemen opens with leather and then is totally dominated by Patchouli and at the basenotes you get a little bit of muskyness kicking in. It is my favorite patchouli scent and well worth trying if you are looking into Patchouli scents.

    Default Re: Best patchouli based, or single note fragrance?

    These are four really fantastic patchouli fragrances. They are all pretty pure to patchouli. Samples can be had from Luckyscent on all except Villoresi which is sampled from Perfumed Court.

    Ulrich Lang Nightscape - cool, gentle and the easiest to wear. Not a single note patch but who cares when it's this good.
    Lorenzo Villoresi Patchouli - cold, earthy, nicely blended patchouli that stays on the cold side throughout.
    Serge Lutens Borneo 1834 - dark chocolate patchouli - very potent through the first hours but sublime after drydown.
    Profumum Patchouly - pure but delicately blended brew of patchouli oils - potent and perfect.

    nobody has mentioned 'giorgio' yet - spicy patchouli bomb. excellent masculine scent for a low price, very pronounced but still delicate, great on longevity and projection. for me one of the budget priced masterworks - check out if scented monkey is still selling these testers on e.bay. i think i got a 4oz for $17-18 including shipping with 'best offer' option.
    hope this helps.

    Mapletop; You should probably do a search on this forum for patchouli - you will find hundreds of threads on patchouli and thousands of suggestions. A thread just went through a couple days ago on patchouli.

    For warm weather patchouli you can not beat Ulrich Lang Nightscape.

    For some very good and kind of pure patchouli you can not go wrong with: Profumum Patchouly, Borneo 1834, Mazzolari Patchouli, Villoresi Patchouli, Patchouli Patch, Micallef Patchouli.

    They're all good patchoulis. Perhaps coromandel , patchouli by lorenzo villoresi followed by Borneo 1834 being my favorites because they are earthier than the there which are a bit on the green leafy side of the plant.

    "The beginning of freedom is the realization that you are not the "thinker." The moment you start watching the thinker, a higher level of consciousness becomes activated. You then begin to realize that there is a vast realm of intelligence beyond thought, that thought is only a tiny aspect of that intelligence. You also realize that all the things that truly matter - beauty, love, creativity, joy, inner peace - arise from beyond the mind.

    You begin to awaken"

    I second or third or fourth,,,, the Mazzolari Patchouli. It is my favorite. You might want to try the Il Profumo Patchouli Noir, it is quite raw patchouli and I find that the dry down seems to finish with the patchouli and sweet pipe tobacco kind of like Tobacco Vanille.

    Patchouli and amber:

    Patchouli Leaves by Montale

    Trebor's post sums it up well. Sample all of the above, and you may consider yourself a veritable scholar of patchouli. I would only add Givenchy Gentleman and Jalaine Patchouli to Trebor's excellent listing. The latter is incredibly rich, reminiscent of vintage Tabu in some aspects. Also be forewarned that Profumum is heartbreakingly expensive.

    Be sure to try Coromandel and Borneo 1834 side by side as an interesting experiment. (Read Luca Turin's reviews of these fragrances to understand why).

    Of all listed, my favorites would have to be Profumum and Farmacia S.S. Annunziata - both available in 0.7ml samples at Luckyscent.

    Good luck on your quest; you have a lot of patch loving company here on Basenotes.

    Dawn Spencer Hurwitz Vintage Patchouly is my favorite , with a tobacco-labdanum drydown that is earthy and powdery .

    Patchouil Pure by Fresh Index is great ! memoir Liquide has a patchouli that I like though not very long lasting ....don't know the name .
    Rose d' Homme by Rosine starts rosey but goes to a great patchouli . LOVE LOVE LOVE Montale Patchouli Leaves !
    Nobile 1942 Patchouli Nobile is more amber than patch , and I get no patchouli from L'Artisan Patch .

    I think what you are looking for is a real 100% Patchouli scent like ETRO Patchouli. The other alternative for blending would be to buy the essential patchouli oil and start blending with this as a base.

    I like the subdued earthy patchouli note on Narciso Rodríguez for him; very nice

    And for a more prominent patchouli scent, I will pick Borneo 1834; simply patchoulastic
