Best patchouli not patchouli
My first Aaron Terence Hughes fragrance. The best introduction to his vast collection.
With patchouli noir Aaron will cement himself as a genius formulator. Patchouli noir is patchouli heavy balanced by chocolate, dry wood which really helps tame the dewy nature of patchouli. Some leather, smoke and clove. My gosh this fragrance leaves me speechless. It is dark but as brooding as Aaron describes it. Definitely very elegant. Usually patchouli is opulent when pair with some rose or oud, or lots of chocolate but this has no oud or rose.

Radiant Patch
Now that I have had the pleasure of testing some of Aaron's fragrances, I am coming to the conclusion that there are two categories of fragrances in his collection.

The loud, deliberately provocative ones, like Slut, Filth, Boss Bitch, etc. - created for clubs and extroverted moments.

And the calm, delicate, embracing, flattering scents, such as Arabica, Zeus, Rose or Violet Delirium.

In exactly the second category I so see Patchouli Noir. A full-bodied start with fresh soil immediately sets the direction here. At the same time, the fragrance is as authentic as it embraces. The patch is aromatic and full of love.

Yes, warmth. And after a good 10 minutes it loses its moist and earthy nuance and opens up to the sweeter components, like tonka and amber. Here, however, the patch steers against it like a sponge and takes away the otherwise over-present sweetness from both accords.

Anyone who has often had "chocolate" fragrances under their nose, could notice here and there how useful patchouli can be in creating this nuance.

Aaron has found his own way to avoid a very voluminous lavender and create the impression of dry, unsweetened organic cocoa. It is rather the hint of cocoa that makes this fragrance so special. Which blooms calmly yet confidently on the skin.

Aaron also masters the quiet tones with bravura.
And therefore they shine all the more.
