Will, fine boy, you go with me ...
For months I searched in vain for a fragrance that would really bring out one of my favorites, Patchouli, the way I love it.
Patchouli finds its equivalent in my emotional world in the tiger's eye, this golden-brown quartz with the almost silky sheen.
So I see Patchouli in broad light and dark brown and golden streams flowing, wafting, meandering through the most different fragrance creations.
How disappointed I was by my previous search, I have documented here yes; whom or what I also tested: "They should not come together ..."
At the moment I have settled in a little in the world of "Histoires de Parfums"; there I feel comfortable and met here "Noir Patchouli"!
Not exactly hopeful, I sprayed and squealed with surprise: "That's him! Finally!"
It's a patchouli smell from my heart and it's flying towards him. At a pace that would break any lap record in Formula 1.
Already at the beginning a dark, almost erotic fragrance intensity spreads: cardamom and coriander - generously embraced by patchouli! The senses awaken; vibrate with expectation!
Also the generous heart is determined by the golden brown patchouli - beautiful!
I notice a not too small pinch of pepper (it bizzelt a little in the nose: a sure sign!).
The aroma of juniper berries is strong enough to take its place in this powerful sound of aromas.
Delicate floral scents cavort on the edge of these spicy, creamy fragrance melanges; they bring small light points into this now deep brown magic!
Patchouli needs moist soil to unfold its full potential; it is not a scent for dust and dryness.
Gérald Ghislain, the storyteller of "Histoires de Parfums", paid tribute to him here:
"Noir Patchouli" gets deeper and more mysterious and enticing.
I follow him fascinated and already sensually placed in golden brown chains.
Vetiver's dark green soil is enriched with moss (possibly even oakmoss?) and musk.
Everything, very generously dosed, fits together harmoniously, almost magically to this Patchouli pleasure.
In order to leave the "damp forest ground" and honour the glowing light, a pleasant leather nuance and enticing vanilla - heavy, cream-coloured and creamy - were added as a finale to the existing scent symphony.
Patchouli full: full-bodied, earthy, of deep dark sensuality - more than just subtle eroticism!
A spicy, almost black living magic, which surrounds me for many hours fragrantly and assures me again and again that we both - "Noir Patchouli" and I - belong together!
This scented guy invites me to a pleasant lolling, to a satisfied purring ...
(And psst!; he doesn't leave many (scent)-wishes open!)
If I have already taken the title of this commentary from Goethe's "Erlkönig", then I will quite simply conclude with the words of the Privy Councillor:
"I love you; I'm tempted by your beautiful figure..."
(everyone knows the rest anyway!)
There is no doubt that this filling will stay with me until the last bit of aroma has evaporated.
It's just a pity that this is the last of the historical fragrances that have been introduced here.
