You might already know that I love L’Artisan Parfumeur. As a brand, I think they really push the boundaries with their notes and their fragrances are so different from anything else out there.
As you would expect, thanks to the name, this fragrance is big on the patchouli so it has some obvious earthy tones. I think there is a similarity to Fou D’Absinthe.
There is a roundness and a sweetness to it but it is the patchouli that you can smell from the first spritz, all the way through to the dry down.
L’Artisan Parfumeur Patchouli Patch Key Notes
What They Say
“Patchouli Patch is an Haute Bohemian interpretation of one of L’Artisan Parfumeur’s original fragrances from 1978…During the 18th and 19th century, silk traders from China packed their silk cloth with dried patchouli leaves to protect them. An exceptional quality of patchouli essential oil is used in this perfume. The floral earthiness of patchouli is enhanced by vetiver, cedar and sandalwood: the dry down is a reminder of patchouli’s long and smoky past.“
