    What interesting patchoulis! Especially the one by Le Labo as you describe it. I’d like to try that one. And the one by L’Artisan. I’m going to wear patchouli today. I have Molinard’s and Patchouli Intense by Parfums Nicolaï (both sent by a friend), and I have Bourbon French’s straight patchouli edc, which should have mellowed a bit in.the bottle by now. I’m not sure what else, I’ll have to have a dig through the samples. I’m not exactly the deep and dark type, but this day seems to call for it. Love your reviews, as always.

    • Thanks. I don’t wear patchouli all the time by any means either, but on certain days it is perfect. I like the Nicolai one too, actually (and like you, definitely like it mellowed in the bottle.)

  2. The only one I have out of your list is the Santa Maria Novella.

    Posted this comment in the old post, so I might as well copy it here. .

    Neil, how about Coromandel? I am not a big fan of patchouli (or a fan at all, I guess) but I think Coromandel is sublime. Also,the new Mugler – Angel Muse is lovely,I’m not an Angel fan but I loved this one. The drydown reminds me of Coromandel. I guess the smooth patchouli/chocolate combo…

  4. I know you don’t agree, N., but I still love FM Monsieur as a favourite patch. I think the name is unfortunate, because I find it genderless — indeed, more to my (feminine) tastes than the relatively “masculine” Portrait of a Lady. Go figger.
