"Patchouli | Réminiscence" is a lovely, Patchouli based fragrance of which some say that it is a good Patch 'for reference', but I'm not sure if I agree on that. Maybe Patchouli BlancPatchouli Blanc comes more close to 'natural patchouli'. Both are very budget friendly nowadays.

When I was a child, Patchouli was very much in fashion (think hippies, 'make love not war' and all that - Oh those were the days Smile!) and that Patchouli smelled different than many Patchouli based perfumes of today. The more earthy, dark and gothic vibes in Patchouli based perfumes often come from other notes with which it is blended. For reference, to find out what Patchouli as a note smells like, you may try a Patchouli-oil from shops that sell the 'more natural' oils maybe.

"Patchouli | Réminiscence" is certainly unisex, earthy, a bit dark and gothic, but is also more 'perfume-y' and even more vintage than the sixties and seventies to my nose (and thus I like it more than just 'plain' Patchouli).

Hope this helps Smile

I LOVE me some patchouli. I love the way it's sweet, woody and dirty all at once. It reminds me a lot of dark chocolate, especially those with a high cacao percentage.

With that in mind, I love anything that highlights those qualities. Angel (Eau de Parfum)Angel Eau de Parfum is an absolute classic, as is TempoTempo . I'm also a big fan of L'Instant de Guerlain pour Homme (Eau de Toilette)L'Instant de Guerlain pour Homme Eau de Toilette - that chocolate-patchouli accord is to die for.

My favorite is Patchouli Intense / Patchouli Homme (Eau de Parfum)Patchouli Intense Eau de Parfum . One of the positives is that it lacks that hippie patchouli vibe.
