This reminds this old hippie chick of the head shops of the sixties with the patchouli incense, only minus the smoke and funk. It is sweet and wonderful, and heady and psychedelic. It smells like the finest most heavenly patchouli to me although others describe it as an orchid accord with a bit of leather and violet. I disagree. It is wonderful, hedonistic, lazy, hippie trippie patchouli …Read more

The heart blends Noir Leather and a signature Patchouli Accord with exotic spices, supported by the intense depth of Amber, Patchouli, Peru Balsam and …Read more
