    Default Patchouli 24 edp vs Perfume Oil

    Has anyone smelled both versions of Le Labo's Patchouli 24? What are--if any--the differences between the two? I'm a little concerned about the safflower oil used in the perfume oil.

    Thanks

    Curious as to what the concern is. Are you allergic to safflower oil?

    No, I'm not. Sometimes, these oil bases give a perfume an undesirable cooking oil off-note.

    Patchouli 24 edp IMO.

    I have not tried their perfume oil base, but I have tried their massage/bath oil, and it has no off notes, quite rich and long lasting. (Interesting that they now have also the body cream for patch 24-they didn't last year)

    I prefer the perfume oils. I tested the EDP. It does not seem to give as much power and smokiness. Ditto for the other fragrances--they somehow seem weaker. I prefer the perfume oils in the Le Labo scents for this reason.

    I suggest you sample the oils and see which you prefer.

    A few days after my post I went to Le Labo, and I prefer the edp (at least for Parchouli 24). To me, the perfume oil lacks the edp's wonderful green brine note.
