Patchouli by Reminiscence
Patchouli's opening is an earthy patch....slightly moist and immediately followed by a wood accord dominated by cedar. It's a very good accord and only patchouli lovers will appreciate it. This is not for folks who prefer their patchouli to be submissive and/or buried underneath a multitude of other notes. This is out front and in your face. I dig it....but then again.....I love patchouli.
This isn't a fragrance with obvious transitions. I get the opening accord ,then it slowly and smoothly transforms into a softer patchouli with a sheer, musky amber. It's uncomplicated and yet an excellent scent. One doesn't really need a lot of movement as long as the present accords are well executed. All of Reminiscence's patch renditions have in common a different, but terrific drydown to their credit. This one is no exception.
Big thumbs up from Aromi for Reminiscence and all their patchouli's.
