Thread: 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.
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.
