The True Sophistication of Patchouli Fragrances
Firstly, we’re here to dispel the myth that patchouli fragrances are the kind of earthy scents you’ll smell on drug rugs, danky bars or on your aunty that goes to Bali four times a year. In fact, it never started out as a hippy-dippy thing. Patchouli fragrances dates back as early to 1323 BC where the Egyptian pharaoh Tutankhamun was reported to be buried in 40 litres of it.

Secondly, we’re here to talk about how patchouli fragrances have made a comeback, no thanks to its earthy and warm profile that is both rich and deep.

Here, nine patchouli fragrances that has the herb as its heart or as a mainstay ingredient.

Acqua Di Parma Colonia Pura: With crisp citrus notes and lighter petit grain accents on the top, Colonia Pura radiates the modern masculinity of patchouli and cedarwood on dry down.



Chanel Les Exclusifs de Chanel Coromandel:  Inspired by Mademoiselle Chanel’s penchant for coromandel screens that lined the walls of her Parisian apartments, intense amber notes of patchouli peeks through to reflect her enchantment of the oriental.
