    Default Question about Patrick by Fragrances of Ireland

    My interest in this fragrance has been piqued not only by sympathetic reviews in here, but by the sparce list of notes, among which are three of my favourites, fern, pine and patchouli. Add to that it won't break the bank...

    I just want to know if this is available in the USA ?

    Of course, your thoughts about this fragrance would also be welcome.

    Thx.

    You can find it at most Irish gift stores. They're in every major American city.

    I'm sure you already googled and know it's currently unavailable on Amazon (where I got mine), but if you can't find it in a store...

    Its a wonderful example of a fougere and it sits right next to my bottle of Houbigant Fougere Royale. Both are excellent. Its just Patrick costs about 5 times less to buy. I wouldn’t hesitate to tell folks to buy this one blind.

    Clean, green with just a pinch of salt-filled air reminiscent of Ireland’s coast...

    It actually smells quite a bit like Irish Spring soap.

    As an aside, this smells closer to vintage Paco Rabbane PH than the current atrocity that is now Paco Rabbane PH.
    I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.

    very nice, thanks. Does anyone here actually successfully receive international orders of fragrances?

    If so, could you perhaps discreetly PM me some general tips on how to go about it ?

    My friend in Ireland has posted me a bottle of Patrick, I am just worried it won't get here....with all the rules now.

    It sounds lovely, yes. I love fern.

    I really am praying my friend's bottle gets here. He packed it well, deep inside bubble wrap, but I get a sinking feeling every time something is posted to me here.

    I got that impression also when I tried it.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    That entirely depends on Nicaraguan customs and the Nicaraguan postal service.
