I expected this to be something of a shocker, but it was less rough than my husband's beloved patchouli oil. The beginning was a pleasant light patchouli (similar to Patchouli Patch, maybe a bit...

Borneo 1834 reminds me strongly of Fifi Chachnil after a night at the bar. The tobacco note in Fifi has already been smoked (in a room hazy with incense) in Borneo. I find the patchouli intensely...

Borneo 1834 wasn't really a fragrance I expected to like ... until I tried the wax sample. It was gorgeous, and I quickly bought a small decant of the juice. When I first put proper Borneo 1834...

This is the nicest, warmest, most wearable patchouli I have ever smelled. Nevertheless, I think I would like it better on a man. In fact, if a man wore that, I would probably have to bite him. It...

I had avoided Borneo like the plaque for the last year or so. *I can't wear patchouli*...I was convinced! The favorite MUA patchoulis left me either nauseated or with a headache. Jalaine...
