Incredible natural patch fragrance
I love this exquisite patch fragrance, more than any other patch fragrance I can think of at the moment. It just smells so natural, the patch is very intense. It's mixed with a sweet orange note in the top, which gives it a clean and fresh feeling, as well as some sweeter notes, perhaps a touch of creamy vanilla. It's earthy but also very Oriental in style. Enigmatic. Sensual. Addictive.

Musky patchouli
Bohemian Spice is basically a nice, “raw” spiced patchouli with woody and camphoraceous notes, among which a vetiver note which emerges soon providing its signature sort of zesty-salty woody rootiness, quite astringent too here. The peculiarity of Bohemian Spice if compared to many other patchouli scents lies in my opinion in its texture, which isn’t dark, earthy or “thick” as many patchouli fragrances tend to be; on the contrary it’s rather bright, much dry and woody, with a palette of nuances reminding me of many Oriental fougères of the past mostly for the camphoraceous-vanillic base notes, which smell a bit like a sort of civilised, tamed-down castoreum, and a “masculine” floral accord providing a subtle barbershop feel. A licorice whiff comes and goes, I guess due to patchouli. All rather dusty and dry as I said. Shortly a patchouli-vetiver blend vaguely musky and really natural, with a nostalgic heart. My opinion on this scent is that it’s undoubtedly nice to wear, well made, effortlessly elegant and also a tad more creative than most of other patchouli scents – a sort of more “dry”, spicy, pleasantly outdated and thin rewriting of this theme. Nice!

True To Its Name...
Bohemian Spice opens with a dull orange-laced nutmeg clove and ginger spice melange. As the composition moves to its early heart the progression remains linear as the early spice deepens, now adding a very natural smelling radiant incense-laced cedar and sandalwood woody duo to the mix with the dull orange remaining in support. During the late dry-down the woods disappear and the spice begins to dissipate as a prominent patchouli base note takes control through the finish, softened by slightly powdery vanilla. Projection is average to above average and longevity very good at 9-10 hours on skin.

When I first applied Bohemian Spice on skin the composition reminded me immediately of fine orange spice tea. Probably the nutmeg, clove and dull orange are the key culprits, but whatever the drivers may be, the scent while more "old school" classic in structure than innovative is entirely believable to its name, natural smelling and sublime. The woody incense in the mid-section adds a new layer to the composition that blends with the orange spice perfectly; and patchouli from the base gently peeps into the heart, first acting as wonderful support before providing an excellent finish, coupling with the gentle powdery sheen of the vanilla. Considering this is an all-natural composition, the relatively good performance metrics also deserve mention. The bottom line is the $250 per 30ml Bohemian Spice is a relatively linear composition that provides a more old-fashioned classic structure lacking innovation, but the composition smells incredible, earning an "excellent" rating of 4 stars out of 5. At over $8 per ml it is hard to justify Bohemian Spice's relatively high price tag, but there is no denying the superb ingredient quality for those looking for a more "old school" composition made of all-naturals created by a nose that knows what they are doing.

Strong incense-amber with patchouli everywhere. In the beginning, you can perceive the orange in the background but it disappears quickly.
