    Cool I just blind bought Patchuli Imperial...

    Sure hope I like it... Have been wanting a patchouli scent and based on the reviews I think I will. Hard to get so it is coming from the Dior Boutique in Las Vegas.

    Congrat's on your purchase, I like Patchouli based scents. Update the thread with your thoughts when you receive it and good luck on the blind buy.

    I certainly will! One more day. Just got Jubilation XXV a couple of days ago. Must be on a buying spree.

    You will like it. It's a wonderful scent and I'm glad I own it.

    Excellent fragrance! I love patchouli and this is a new staple in my collection. I love it along with Chanel Coromandel, they are both beauties. Guerlain Heritage is great too.

    I wasn't crazy about it. Although it is a respectable Patch fragrance. It was way too simple and conservative for me.

    There are a few Patch Frags on LuckyScents that you should sample. I forget the names of the houses but they were interesting.

    FYI, I just had that same store send me a bunch of samples from this line (I ordered Amber Nuit, Mitzah, and Bois D'Argent), so, in the future, you might not need to buy blind. I hope this purchase works out for you, though!

    I used to love strong damp patchoulis like Patchouli from Reminiscence. But now not so much.

    I do love Patchouli Imperial though.

    One of the most regal, posh and high end patchouli perfumes I've ever smelled.

    for swap/sale:

    Now it is my SOTD! Am i crazy or does this share some notes, maybe the patchouli, with L'instant Extreme?

    It's on the truck and I will get this today. I know it is a simpler fragrance. That's ok. I have complex fragrances and something simple is good. Conservative? That's good. I axore challenging fragrances and something a bit conservative will be a welcome addition.

    CAN'T WAIT!

    It just came and I sprayed myself! First thoughts are that there is a touch of citrus and a sweeter almost powdery patchouli. Definately patchouli but not the gagging scent from hippies and sandlewood is apparent to my nose too. I swear there is honey in this but it is not listed. Reviews on Fragrantica seem to think this is a cool weather and night scent. I disagree. This one seems fresher and would be suitable for warmer months and day wear. Just some first impressins after 15 minutes of wear. Not my usual style, but I was searching for something different for my collection and have found it. Can't wait to figure this one out.

    Maybe has some sweet amber in it? I swear it shares something with the Ambre Sultan i wore yesterday.
