An Otherworldly Beauty
A very rare patchouli, probably my favorite so far. It's authentic in a way that it captures the medicinal aspect of patchouli with its opening, but then it becomes light and almost ethereal when sniffs of mint and musk strike in. What I love the most about it is definitely from its middle phase till its last minute. Perfectly balanced that it evokes the feeling of standing in awe to a grand scroll of landscape ink painting. It definitely gives off a glance of the windy wildness, but meanwhile the musty moss and soil make it super grounded and soothing. It's not that intrusive as a patchouli if you're concerned about that, even though it lasts +8 hours on my skin. I wear it on a daily basis and my friends always compliment me. I bought it in Rome and now it's almost an olfactory marker of Rome for me.
