It reminds me of an older fragrance. Gucci or possibly a mainstream fragrance? I'm very much reminded of something from the 1970s but I just can't put my name on it. On my skin, the rose is less apparent with patchouli front & center but when I smell my sleeve the rose was definately there. While I like the scent ok, I find it too strong for daily wear. I wish the rose and patchouli was muted a bit &/or there was a bit of fresh note added to cut the cloying aspect of this fragrance. Good staying power and sillage even if sparingly applied.
