Let’s face it: Patchouli can be maddening to describe because it smells like nothing else in the world but patchouli. Yes, it’s earthy and rich, but those adjectives fail to conjure up the hypnotic, evocative qualities that make patchouli so distinctive. Luckily, if we simply state the obvious ? Patchouli Nobile is a patchouli scent ? we have a good place to begin because we all know that deep, highly recognizable note. The question is, is it a good patchouli scent?
Happily, the answer is yes. In fact, it’s not just a good patchouli scent, it’s a great one: It seduces without resorting to brute force, it has a caressing amber-tinged sweetness that nestles into the loamy richness of clean earth and smooth wood and it retains the dry freshness of its opening of incense and pepper. It is both elegantly refined and devastatingly sexy. The patchouli is absolutely present, but it’s not overpowering, and the layers of sandalwood, oak moss, amber and tonka add a luxurious, velvety quality that makes this superbly wearable. It goes without saying that if you are already a fan of patchouli, you need to try this, but we feel that this cozy and alluring scent has the potential to win new converts to the patchouli cult, as well. Outstanding.
