Van Nelle - the smoke does it
Recently I visited my Düsseldorf-based perfumery Beauty Affair again. There Mr. Hardcastle had set up and presented the purple Molinard fragrances as well as the three new additions Gingembre, Citrus Noir and Thé Basilic on an extra table for new releases and offers separately. Sure - with this colour it was a real eye-catcher for me. I had already commented on Thé Basilic in detail recently, but I think that another of the lighter series, I am fond of the gingembre, should probably be discussed in spring.

Currently, I was particularly attracted to vanilla patchouli, a combination that aroused my great interest, because soft, sweet and gourmand stands in excellent contrast to herbaceous, tart and earthy - depending on which type of lip flower was processed.

You could have thought of that a long time ago or more often, but you won't find so many fragrances with these two main characters, although it sounds more exciting than Rose & Oud or Lemon & Orange.

However, Vanille Patchouli is a little different than initially thought. Vanilla is quickly identified, though not as exemplarily smooth as comparable in Guerlain perfumes, but at least pleasantly cuddly.

But instead of patchouli, you hear a smoky note that comes from mixing smoking cherry wood logs with scorched tobacco. In between, Benzoin sparks very tentatively and tries to mediate, but the desired contrast remains.

To finish, the components remain, but in a more reserved, softer form, whereby one could somehow miss the patchouli, but on the other hand it looks no less uninteresting in this way. Towards the end I feel a little bit olfactorically reminded of these little vanilla dragées, which is definitely positive for me personally.

So if you want to enrich your vanilla fragrance collection with a less sweet but smoky-patchouli-like creation, but for whom tobacco vanilla is already too common and/or too expensive, you can add it to your watch list. Especially since Molinard, especially as an eau de parfum, truly demands absolutely fair prices and offers good value for money.

Loads of earthy patchouli with sweet vanilla. OMG! This is so good! It's probably the gourmand fragrance I prefer!
