Plays in the patchouli major league!
Similar to animal nuances; patchouli certainly does not like everyone.
And when the two come together, it rushes in the box...
I've always found patchouli in all possible gradations to be great - except for the patchouli perfume that you clapped on your poncho or band hoodie by the litre when you were completely grunge. But this has as little to do with real (or good) patch as Madonna has to do with a first-class actress.
What is beyond question is that you have to have a certain affinity with patchouli to enjoy Pachulí Kozha.
Even though this changes significantly in the course of the fragrance, PK is anything but cuddly patchouli for the time being.
Earthy he is. And dirty.
Wet. And greasy Wrapped in smoke and cabbage.
Shortly after spraying it on, it inevitably reminds me of Tobacco Oud Intense (the "fruit" note completely excluded).
I do not take chamomile (thank God?) at all. But I do notice a herbaceous-herbal note, which, mixed with frankincense, develops into real clouds of smoke.
A little cough drop also resonates, which makes the whole thing look a little "schnapsig" in between.
Cold, acrid clouds of smoke, which are contained by the earthy, moist patchouli;
where: rather kept in check than contained...
Even though PK cannot be compared to any other (patch) fragrance I know of, nuances appear again and again in the course of the fragrance, which remind me to some extent of other fragrances.
At the beginning it is the Tobacco Oud Intense - association, but the herbaceous-smoky note reminds me of Sandor 70's. This is also due to the fact that Pachulí Kozha also has something animal-horse-like about it. The darkest leather further enhances the impression However, I feel the fragrance is miles away from being called animalistic, as well as from being unwearable. Earthy and spicy it is already quite good.
The honey only really comes through on my skin in the absolute drydown. Wild, bittersweet honey. Makes everything a bit smoother and rounds off the fragrance completely. Plays on my skin however no carrying role
Unfortunately, in my opinion, many patch scents do not manage to put the patchouli in the right light or to play around.
I have already tested 100 felt, but despite my love for patchouli, abet possesses perhaps 4 "patchouli fragrances" Apparently citric notes are taken with pleasure, which then completely smear the patchouli. Or else patchouli in the form of a slap on it, which then again somehow reminds of black nail polish.
Pachulí Kozha does (for me) everything right Patchouli plays the leading role and the supporting actors also shine.
And they smoke and suck cough drops.
