Profumum Patchouly

This is only the 2nd fragrance I have sampled from Profumum. The 1st was the original version of Santalum ( dark, oily) and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Patchouly is as well made as Santalum and that is to be expected from a house that implements a price point of $2.40 per ml.

Profumum Patchouly is a heady brew of earthy patchouly and amber in the opening accord. The amber is deep and not of the sweet variety. It's a very good, resinous amber and compliments the earthiness perfectly.

The accords are very uncomplicated and after a short wait, a subtle smoke arrives and augments the dynamic duo. The incense is a nice addition and the triumvirate it produces is really all this fragrance needs. Sometimes keeping something simple results in a superior creation. Profumum succeeds with Patchouly in every way. The drydown is a smoky, amber patch accord that utilizes a very subtle wood to finish off a terrific release.

Now.....if they can only get the prices down a notch and release these creations in 30 & 50ml versions, I'd be the proud owner of numerous scents by this house. As it stands, the creations are excellent, but a bit too pricey for my blood.
