More pepper than patchouli
What i see as Esteban Patchouli is not a classical earthy and dirty patchouli of dark gourmand nuances. In fact, if it wasn't called patchouli i wouldn't have thought about the note, mainly because what i get for a considerable time on my skin is blast of peppers, more pink than black one, which makes the peppery impression goes more in the sweet and salty direction than the incensed one. After the peppers in notice the iris giving its aroma, very dry and earthy, but different from the earthy patchouli aroma. After that, the scent finishes in a quite indistinct base, sweet and woody but which doesn't remind of anything in particular, specially patchouli. It's lovely if you like peppers, of course, but i have trouble seing it as a patchouli scent.
