My nose does not perceive many similarities between 1697 and Straight to Heaven. I like them both, but I would never qualify Straight to Heaven as a gourmand. To me it is very dry, while 1697 smells a bit fruity. Like warm wine with spices. I don't wear Straight to Heaven often, but I think it can be enjoyed in all weathers. I find 1697 a bit overpowering on a warm day.
Lately I have been fascinated with patchouli. I don't know why...
It is interesting to me how different patchouli smells in Straight to Heaven, compared to Coromandel, Borneo, and the new Patchouli Imperial. I guess the patchouli note plays well with other elements that result in different accords, as opposed to notes like vetiver, that always smell the same.
Wiki article I linked to earlier has an excellent exposition of all the main elements and how they work - Wikipedia is like the girl with the curl on forehead . . . and in this particular instance it's very very good.
I like many of the by Kilian perfumes, but I don't think people should take offense if you don't like them. With so many perfumes in the market and so many classic masterpieces, it is impossible to like everything. In my opinion, likes and dislikes are very personal and should be respected.

I have not tried Patchouly Rosso yet. Have you tried the new Dior Patchouli Imperial? You may like it.
I am not familiar with the "hype" over StH.
