I adore this fragrance. It's the nicest patchouli fragrance I ever smelled. I am also a big fan of Les Nereides Patchouli Antique. I love Gothic I more.

A pleasant patchouli/vanilla oil that smells somewhat "chocolaty" and is unpleasantly overpriced and over-hyped about. Voleur de Roses smells patchy and gothic, this smells like a sweet girly girl with ponytails and a bar of chocolate candy in her hand --and NOT Gothic. If you have your heart set on an oil with a Gothic feel to it try Rehina Harris frankincense oil. NEXT!!

At first I thought paschat was so right on the money with this one - it's a very expensive Dragonflyblue oil... She totally is right, but for me, Gothic I has its pros over DFB. DFB oils have become headache inducing to me, and thank goodness Gothic I doesn't do that. In the beginning it's insanely patchouli, which is actually not a bad thing, even for this patchouli avoider - it lends a mystery to this otherwise vanilla heavy scent. That patchouli blast then dies away to welcome a rich, vanilla incense, and I then understand the raves I've heard from friends who just dig this scent. I'm so wearing this to church. Too expensive for what it is, though, and I'd never plop down the money for a full size, but I'll hang on to my sample and wear it when I feel like being a troublesome choir girl.

Surprised by such negative reviews here. While this one is pretty expensive, itís also a lovely, warm, rich, Oriental vanilla with incredible lasting power. A dab on the back of a wrist lasts me well past 7 hours and then some. Sometimes a strong patchouli gives me difficulty, but this one is blended beautifully and gives the fragrance just enough backbone without being over-powering. Mostly I smell a sweet vanilla with amber/patchouli undertones and a good dose of sweet wood and benzoin. Heavenly!

Just read the reviews here. I'm going to be odd man out. I really love Gothic 1. I adore complex scents - especially woods, incense, spice, but sometimes I simply crave something sweet...like wanting a fudge brownie on occasion, but not daily. This is one of my fragrance equivalents to a fudge brownie. It's an incredibly sultry, rich, sweet vanilla intensified with patchouli and woods. It layers gorgeously with other fragrances, softening all sharp edges. It's in the same vein as Des Filles a la Vanille's Vanille, but much longer lasting and deeper. And, umm..yes, Debra, as astonishing as it is, and despite not having anywhere near unlimited funds, I did fork over for the quarter ounce (not the half ounce)....perhaps I should go have my IQ retested? Nah...I'll just have a brownie and layer something w/ Gothic 1. :-)

Decent perfume oil with a predominant patchouli note which, like paschat mentions, creates a chocolately effect on the skin. Pleasant, but why so expensive?
