Patchouli scent with "aardvark" effect
I'm notorious with good patchouli scents for not being able to stick my little trunk in deep enough.
If I find one with that heavy golden brown aroma, I want to sink into it.
Some fragrances have already seduced me in recent years, others were really just "nice" or but terrible!
My various comments lay about it yes testimony!

"Patchouli d'Orient" by Durance en Provence is a creation from the category "at it's best!" - tested and not let go again! My little nose pulls it even now again and again in the direction where the small bottling is.
Because here patchouli is really dark, moist and earthy-dirty!
Right at the beginning there is a "scent-cowl" to roll in: oh, would I be an aardvark!
Cleverly, the actually quite ordinary kitchen spices clove and nutmeg were added.
Here it shows once again: the "fragrance ingredients" do not always have to come from far away to form a great fragrance chord. "d'Oriente" there and back!
Dark green and earthy brown appears vetiver and this makes the combination rounder and even deeper. Cleverly dosed warm, sensual vanilla puts the well-scented "grungy package" into snuggle mode - not heavenly here, but wonderfully earthy-dirty!
Did I mention that this whole fragrance beauty of a very special kind is stored on a bed of amber?
Thus, "Patchouli d'Oriente" is a golden-brown, languidly meandering stream of fragrance, which increasingly spreads and deepens, with the radiant amber fuzz particularly prominent.

"Patchouli d'Oriente" is an exceptional fragrance for a truffle pig nose like me.
If it were up to me, I'd start raving about it again right now and get all wrapped up in it; but I won't put anyone through that!

Full-bodied and long-lasting is this "dark fragrance power" and I can only conclude with:

"Patchouli friends, off to Provence!"

Beautiful soft patchouli in natural dress
I think Durance en Provence has managed a really nice patch here. For my part, I smell only patchouli, which is exquisitely supported by its accompanying notes. Rum adds spice without dragging an alcohol trail behind it, vanilla, amber and the "balsamic notes" add cream and softness. Nothing scratchy here. Not that I wouldn't like a little scratchiness on the patch, but this one isn't.

The durability with up to 6 hours I find really good for a natural fragrance (according to the manufacturer, 95% of the ingredients are of natural origin). The sillage is probably also nature fragrance-typical rather restrained. Only in the first half hour, I can really send consciousness.

Who prefers to wear more natural fragrances and likes patchouli, should "Patchouli d'Orient" times test
