One of the most important ingredients available to a perfumer, patchouli was used historically by silk and cashmere traders to perfume precious textiles for their wealthy European customers. This practice popularized the scent, spreading the woody, leafy, naturally powerful aroma across the globe.
Essence de Patchouli uses natural Patchouli essential oil, harmonized in the heart by the richness and the sensuality of rose and geranium, and made sophisticated in the base by an oriental/woody touch through the blend of labdanum absolute, vanilla, iris, cashmeran and precious woods. The result is a sophisticated chypre/oriental blend; it is rich, warm, and dry, but also breathtakingly soft.
