Van Nelle - the smoke does it
Recently I visited my Düsseldorf-based perfumery Beauty Affair again. There Mr. Hardcastle had set up and presented the purple Molinard fragrances as well as the three new additions Gingembre, Citrus Noir and Thé Basilic on an extra table for new releases and offers separately. Sure - with this colour it was a real eye-catcher for me. I had already commented on Thé Basilic in detail recently, but I think that another of the lighter series, I am fond of the gingembre, should probably be discussed in spring.

Currently, I was particularly attracted to vanilla patchouli, a combination that aroused my great interest, because soft, sweet and gourmand stands in excellent contrast to herbaceous, tart and earthy - depending on which type of lip flower was processed.

You could have thought of that a long time ago or more often, but you won't find so many fragrances with these two main characters, although it sounds more exciting than Rose & Oud or Lemon & Orange.

However, Vanille Patchouli is a little different than initially thought. Vanilla is quickly identified, though not as exemplarily smooth as comparable in Guerlain perfumes, but at least pleasantly cuddly.

But instead of patchouli, you hear a smoky note that comes from mixing smoking cherry wood logs with scorched tobacco. In between, Benzoin sparks very tentatively and tries to mediate, but the desired contrast remains.

To finish, the components remain, but in a more reserved, softer form, whereby one could somehow miss the patchouli, but on the other hand it looks no less uninteresting in this way. Towards the end I feel a little bit olfactorically reminded of these little vanilla dragées, which is definitely positive for me personally.

So if you want to enrich your vanilla fragrance collection with a less sweet but smoky-patchouli-like creation, but for whom tobacco vanilla is already too common and/or too expensive, you can add it to your watch list. Especially since Molinard, especially as an eau de parfum, truly demands absolutely fair prices and offers good value for money.

Vanilla woods
I waited with excitement for this vanilla bottling, because just now in the Advent season I am sniffing through all the vanilla scents.
This time a complete success. Vanilla meets dark patchouli, framed by sandalwoods that nestle endlessly in this composition.
It feels soft, velvety and balsamic in this fragrance I feel infinitely safe, warmly covered and can enjoy the coming cool winter days with it.
Quite discreetly I can smell something smoky.
Nevertheless, vanilla remains the main player and that is also my demand for a vanilla fragrance.

I find the flacon successful and stylishly beautiful.

Yin and Yang
How could anyone come up with the idea of combining two such opposites as vanilla and patchouli in such an impressive creation? I was very curious: two fragrances with such different, very dominant personalities coming together here: What can I expect?

The creamy, white and warm feminine vanilla, which is so appealing to the senses, and patchouli: moist, earthy and occasionally a little dirty.
These two should coexist in "Vanilla Patchouli" by Molinard, perhaps even form a unity?

To anticipate this: These two, very distinct fragrance notes really do manage it: they enter into a very remarkable relationship.

Vanilla, the goddess of fragrances, following in Aphrodite's footsteps, full of warmth and sensuality, opulent, sometimes pompous and even exuberant, transgressive, yet always generously embracing, brings benzoin - resinous and smoky - and musk in its slightly animalistic cuddliness into this extraordinary composition, as if it were the best man These "weapons of the woman" have been skillfully dosed; thus vanilla, surrounded by pleasant resinous veils of smoke and in a rich musky cuddly jacket, appears at the altar of the fragrance artist who is responsible for this interesting fragrance marriage.
Lady Vanilla - attention-grabbing, caressing the senses, extremely warm, soft and cuddly: a voluptuous fragrance with a very enticing, tantalizing personality.
A delight for the nose alone in search of something pompous that might tempt a little in the everyday/winter gray, leading away from the right path.
(After all, people need a bit of variety!)
Lover Patchouli, in a golden-brown robe with gold flowing through it, is in no way inferior to his sweetheart.
Its rather masculine, earthy, slightly damp aura is enhanced by the creamy animalic quality of sandalwood; not too dirty here, but still quite original, rooted to the soil and already very sexy!
In "Vanilla Patchouli", the exotic femininity of vanilla and patchouli meet in dark splendor as a down-to-earth counterpart.
Creamy white with a light smoky veil and dark brown with gold inclusions;
Woman and man;
Light and dark:
Ying and Yan;
A creation of two dominant, self-sufficient fragrance notes in extremely suitable accompaniment become a harmonious whole here, whereby first a delimitation of light and dark, then later a cross-border union of the feminine and masculine fragrance approaches is skillfully achieved.
Two equal fragrance partners coexist in an astonishingly balanced way; there is no battle for supremacy:
"Vanilla Patchouli" manages to spread subtle eroticism:
Whether creamy white or dark brown - whichever way the senses turn: They are always captured, captivated and abducted!
Where to? Who knows ...

With this fragrance-intensive creation that is not overly long-lasting, but with a fragrance development that is very touching to the senses and emotions during phases of varying richness, I can't help but think of Goethe's Privy Councillor and I will leave the closing words to him (with two verses from his poem about the gingko tree):

"Is it a living being,
that separates into itself,
there are two that choose each other,
that they are known as one.

To answer such questions
i probably found the right sense:
Do you not feel in my songs,
that I am one and double?"

Relaxing, warm vanilla with patchouli
Very intense (at least in the first 30 - 60 minutes), warm, round fragrance. More calming than uplifting. Ideal for evenings in the winter/Christmas season.

It doesn't seem particularly complex to me. I mainly smell the vanilla and patchouli. Above all, I find the fragrance very sweet.

Very intense on the skin for the first hour. After about four hours, I didn't really notice it any more - but it could also be that I've become nose-blind.

Vanille Patchouli, nothing more, nothing less
Vanilla and Patchouli are two of my favorite notes, so it's no surprise I like this. I don't think you can hate this if you love these two notes.
But of course, not all vanillas and patchoulis smell the same. In this case vanilla is sweet and slightly creamy, but it has a natural vanilla bean scent and doesn't come across as cloying. The patch is dry and very earthy without crossing the line to dirty. Together they make a warm and powdery impression with undertones of dark chocolate and even coffee. As the scent dried down, it gets a slightly smokey aspect. Vanilla is the longest lasting note here, it will cling to the skin even after everything else has vanished.

This is a relatively simple scent that doesn't blow me away, but does exactly what it is supposed to do. It reminds me of the base notes of many other fragrances, so it's nothing innovative, but I imagine it would make a great layering tool to add some warmth and depth to other perfumes. And, of course, it also smells good on its own.

To me this scent is simple and lovely. It's vanilla-forward with a softer patchouli undertone, perfectly balanced.
