Dior Patchouli Imperial
I am looking for a patchouli centered fragrance that is creamy or sweet and very good longevity/Projection, and suited for men. Also Niche.....Thanks..
Dior Patchouli Imperial
Mazzolari Patchouly by Mazzolari.
Either Aventus (lovely patchouli and vanilla) or maybe even Sycomore (though not sweet at all, it's got a very creamy wood/hazelnut dry-down).
There is Bois 1920 Real Patchouly and then there are all the other patch frags. It is the most refined and intoxicating patchouliI have ever tried. Absolutely gorgeous without the sweaty skank but with all the intoxicating booziness.
Oh Real Patchouly is nice......the amber and Patchouli combo is soothing but did not last long on my skin....you think it is because of it's strength being EDT?

I have to try [Coromandel] out again......what I felt when smelling it was a new realm for Patchouly....greatly a step forward into the game....I prefer more traditional patchouli smells....BTW, is it an EDT?

Try L'Artisan Patchouli Patch
Two suggestions to be added to the above great suggestions,
1. Patchouli Imperiale - Dior exclusive.
2. Psychedelique - Jovoy (very close too Sege Lutens - Borneo 1834)
This can be very cheap! Diesel Plus Plus has it all..
EDIT: Didn't read 'niche'
unico grande amore.
Not a fan of the patchouli note, but I really like Coromandel.
Coromandel is the smoothest I can think of. A little drier perhaps Lutens Borneo 1836.
Montale Patchouli Leaves
Another for Chanel Coromandel. Maybe not out-and-out creamy, but definitely a white-chocolate-like take on patchouli. Definitely sweet, and amazingly classy.
If you want a great quality patchouli which is perfect for everyday's wear, give a chance to Von Eusersdorff Classic Patchouli. It opens incredibly earthy to turn in the drydown into a smooth and soothing concoction of woody-patch and resinous amber. Not overly sweet, well balanced, incredibly comfortable and warm. A big winner!
Another option is Cozè by Parfumerie Generale. A cocoa-patch combo with woody-green nouances. Slightly gourmandic yet not too youthful.

This is not a niche fragrance by any means but give Patchouli by Molinard a try. It reminds me of Coromandel for less than 1/10 th the price and a must try for patchouli lovers.
For a sweet, simple, warm and cozy patchouli, I'd recommend L'Artisan Patchouli Patch. If you want it with a twist, try their Voleur de Roses, which is basically Patchouli Patch with a lovely rose grafted on top. My favourite dirty patchouli however is Serge Lutens Borneo 1834... Warm earthy patchouli with cocoa. Yummy, masculine and not too sweet.
If you want a more elegant and distinguished patchouli, I've recently been enchanted by Histoires de Parfums Noir Patchouli. The only patchouli I've tried that you can wear with a suit rather than pyjamas...
