I get liquorice, camphor and raisins for the first ten minutes. Heart is patchouli, bitter cocoa, cardamom and wood. This is simply gorgeous. The comparisons with Angel are understandable due to that predominant patchouli, but Borneo whispers while Angel shouts. If I ever find this in that beautiful limited edition bottle that would probably be the tipping point for me to purchase.

Patchouli and chocolate, but not sweet chocolate. Bitter, dark chocolate. Wet earth, leaves, ancient trees in a dark forest. All these come to mind with Borneo.

This is not for the faint hearted! This has a darkness and earthiness to it that I have never smelled in a fragrance before. After a while I can detect a leather note, but no matter how hard I try, I can't detect any of …

Borneo is a patchouli masterpiece. It is as if Angel traded in her glitter lip gloss and clear platform heels for a deep burgundy lipstick and velvet smoking slippers. It is a smooth, dark, polished and sophisticated scent. And dry, dry, dry! No sugar or berries here, and no one will confuse you with dessert, even though it does contain cocoa.

As a side-note, no other perfume has …

Here's a link to a great review of the EDP. I dont think I could put it any better.

I was hoping to get more cocoa and amber from this, but I only get a hint of cocoa for the first 30 seconds on my skin, and then this quickly settles into all patchouli all the time. It's a sweet, earthy, almost honeyed smelling patchouli. And it's way too simple for me. After a while, it's a bit like patchouli and a whiff of lavender-y men's cologne (?).
I've …

Notes: patchouli, white flowers, cardamom, galbanum, french labdanum and cacao.

The first blast is dark chocolate and patchouli, as if I was smelling an exotic dark chocolate bar. On me the chocolate is the headnote, vanishing soon to leave me with the patchouli and the spices. I am sure the white flowers, albeit undetectable, do their part in creating a well-rounded, balanced scent. I …

This is a huge patchouli blast! I understand patchouli leaves were used to keep away moths - this could clear a county of moths! And the chocolate note does not work for me either, it is too stale and musty to be pleasant.
I always appreciate the craftsmanship that goes into Lutens work but this one is just not for me.

No edible chocolate here but dry, dark and bitter cocoa powder. I get more coffee, tobacco and patchouli than cocoa. It does smell like two clashing fragrances worn together and is intoxicating from a distance, but a little confusing up close. I think it is rather different from Angel and A*Men. I normally enjoy masculine scents, but I do find this a little too much for my own use. As with most …Read more
