    Default Patchouli that is green or citrus and NOT sweet/gourmand or incense/spice

    I'm looking for recommendations for a patchouli fragrance that is not sweet, gourmand, or incense/spice. I enjoy herbal, green, and citrus notes, and I'd like the patchouli to be prominent. In general, I enjoy more "simple" fragrances with fewer notes. I have tried Atelier Mistral Patchouli and enjoyed the anise in that.

    Thanks so much!

    Thank you for all the suggestions. I am in the U.S. and cannot find a sample of Patchouly Boheme anywhere, but will try the other ones.

    I have been wearing Atelier Mistral Patchouli a lot and it is very lovely. The patchouli/anise accord is interesting, and it dries down very feminine, IMO.

    Well, I wouldn't say that Bornéo is NOT sweet/gourmand!!

    A rather simple, herbaceous patch is Lorenzo Villoresi Patchouli. If you like the pairing with roses, Voleur de Roses by L'Artisan can be nice.

    Atelier Mistral Patchouli +1 . It's available in the U.S. It is a very unusual patchouli, without any sweet notes I could feel, and definitely with a touch of green.

    Montale Patchouli Leaves definitely has a lot of green facets to it.

    Another must-try is Histoires de Parfums' Noir Patchouli.

    Patchouli pour homme by Parfums de Nicolai is more on the citric-acidic side rather than the earthy and incensy one.
