Bohemian Spice is basically a nice, “raw” spiced patchouli with woody and camphoraceous notes, among which a vetiver note which emerges soon providing its signature sort of zesty-salty woody rootiness, quite astringent too here. The peculiarity of Bohemian Spice if compared to many other patchouli scents lies in my opinion in its texture, which isn’t dark, earthy or “thick” as many patchouli fragrances tend to be; on the contrary it’s rather bright, much dry and woody, with a palette of nuances reminding me of many Oriental fougères of the past mostly for the camphoraceous-vanillic base notes, which smell a bit like a sort of civilised, tamed-down castoreum, and a “masculine” floral accord providing a subtle barbershop feel. A licorice whiff comes and goes, I guess due to patchouli. All rather dusty and dry as I said. Shortly a patchouli-vetiver blend vaguely musky and really natural, with a nostalgic heart. My opinion on this scent is that it’s undoubtedly nice to wear, well made, effortlessly elegant and also a tad more creative than most of other patchouli scents – a sort of more “dry”, spicy, pleasantly outdated and thin rewriting of this theme. Nice!
