Scent 6.0/10
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.

Be Careful What You Ask For!
You asked for patchouli, and Esteban PATCHOULI delivers! This is a big, voluptuous, va-voom patchouli fragrance with huge sillage and fantastic staying power. In fact, it's all so outspoken that I probably would not wear this in a public setting...

Here are the notes according to the house's website (confirming the above):

Lead notes: black pepper, pink peppercorns
Heart notes: white rose, iris, violet leaves
Base notes: patchouli, labdanum

The pepper is quite light, thankfully, and patchouli really is the star of the show. Not too dark, but not quite clean, and not at all sweet, this is a floralized patchouli with lots of depth and big billowy presence. Recommended for all and only patchouli fanatics!
