First, I'd like state I did not purchase the perfume from the official ATH site due to the exorbitant shipping, but a reputable fragrance site stateside. I received this perfume with great anticipation after reading the reviews and watching fragrance reviews on YouTube - reviews read like an award ceremony as reviewers easily dispatched star after star, a 10/10. As a Patch lover, the fragrance description intrigued me... "dark, mysterious, patchouli, chocolate," and with an "impressive 20% concentration." Nothing could be further from the truth. At first spray upon opening the fragrance, I thought this must be fake... no one could even try to pass this for patchouli. The juice I received was packaged as described, but smelled like glorified Windex... not even Patchouli Windex, just straight chemicals which thankfully evaporated soon after application. The site's service agent assured me the fragrance is "handmade and has recently been reformulated by Aaron Terence Hughes himself." If true and the perfume I received was truly from the house of ATH , my confidence in the perfumer has been greatly shaken, and this will be the first and last testing of his line. I seldom write reviews especially if my words could be interpreted as negative, but my experience with Patchouli Noir by ATH has been so disappointing I felt sharing could help someone else. If my experience was due to purchasing a counterfeit, I extend an apology to ATH. That's my two cents for what's worth. Regards!
