CDG Luxe Patchouli

Allow me to thank my fellow blogger Sug for sending me Luxe Patchouli  along with numerous other goodies recently. I had been meaning to get around to this one and was excited to see it in the sample package.

No sooner it hit my skin, I got confused and thought....." Is this Sables"? I had to look at the vial again to make sure. I was immediately hit with Immortelle and the good ole maple syrup note. Either Immortelle is a very dominating note or it's simply implemented in a strong fashion here remains a mystery to me.

I make no claims on being intimate with fenugreek, but I do know it's similar in aroma to Immortelle. Both have that syrupy aura bordering on slightly burnt and wispy smoke. As I waited on other notes to make a transitionary appearance, I decided to look up the accords:

Pepper, Fenugreek, Lovage, Oak, Opoponax, Patchouli, Cedar, Vanilla, Vetiver.

This is what comprises Luxe Patchouli, yet after 30 minutes, I'm still getting nothing but syrup. Even after 45 minutes, I get no other note and the totality of the scent combined with the price point has me scratching my head. Is this an April Fools joke or could this possibly be by design? I have no answers......nor do I have more time to use on Luxe Patchouli waiting for it to turn into a butterfly. I shall move on to bigger and (quite easily) better things.

  1. Whoops! Sorry that one didn't work out for you.

    Immortelle does have a tendency to take over things, it's true, even when dealing with a heavy-weight like patch!

  2. No worries bro !!! I truly am grateful for the opportunity to have sampled it ! It's good, but not for me. I guess I like my patch on the rocks with a hint of sweet.
