This is my desert-island patchouly. The opening is really harsh, very camphorous. But then...after about half an hour I get the most beautiful patchouly I have ever smelled. Besides patchouly I can smell a very gentle hint of carnation. Maybe it's my skin chemistry. When my husband wears it, it stays much longer camphorous and nearly no carnations at all. Patchouly Indonesiano of Farmacia is my heaven. Sometimes I spritz a little Ambre 114, or Ambre Extreme on it and it works. Longevity is very good too.
