Bois 1920 Real Patchouli
Many fragrances that I like use a combination of amber and vanilla and they differ in note proportion, but the deft use in Real Patchouli is a truly pleasing one. Bois opens with minimal citrus and then gets right to it with a sweet woody patchouli.
This isn't over-the-top Cheech and Chong patch. It doesn't even matter if Bois used a high end patchouli or not. This is extremely well blended and the tenacity of the patchouli is commensurate with the sandal and van-amber. They are ( to me) in perfect balance and just loud enough to satisfy the longevity a scent in this price range calls for. This is a badass patch for either gender.
