Cambios en la fragancia
Tuve una muestra en 2015 y me gustó, olía a patchouli de calidad y la vainilla lo endulzaba un poco, compre la botella y no me decepcionó, aunque no era el mismo aroma que la muestra, nota de salida patchouli muy fuerte para luego "endulzarse" aunque ese aroma a bourbon en el secado posterior, no lo tenía, duración buena aunque no extrema como sería sello distintivo de Montale, me imagino que en un principio sí. Compre otro frasco a finales de 2016 sin acabarse el primero y... oh, sorpresa! Este olía a patchouli más mohoso el aroma a "vainilla" "chocolate" no lo detecto por ningún sitio y una duración pésima, ha perdido el encanto que tenía por lo menos en mi caso particular, es curioso siempre que se cambia es a peor, excepto el precio, ese si cambia, es a mayor, decir también que tengo Patchouly de Profumum Roma, y se nota que los ingredientes son de mucha mejor calidad, son 200 € pero prefiero pagar más y estar satistecho, bye bye Montale...

Heavy Patchouli
One of the best patchouli based scents that i have ever tried.

Opening is raw and earthy and takes a while to settle down.

Then join the vanilla and make it creamy and sweeter - thats the moment it remembers me of Coromandel.

Projection is huge and also the sillage and lasting power (over 12hs).

amber patch
The earthy aspect of patchouli, and the warm stone-scent aspects of cistus labdanum are the thread that joins these two key players in Patchouli Leaves. Sweetness isn’t hidden, but certainly isn’t pushed to the front. I find the patch that is there exactly the viscous, hippy patch that I was looking for. But it’s perfectly matched by amber, vanilla, and musk, which might make it sound candy sweet, but it isn't. They serve to add a rounded, cushioned feel. The whole fragrance reads like patchouli on a stack of pillows.

Patchouli Leaves
What prevents me to loving this
is the heavy amount of amber as the opener the amber had a bit of an curdled
smell but that my only compaint.
of course you've got patchouli but it drowns in a wet saturated sea of oils
but want makes it dry is the Labdanum
with the deep fiery smokey scent plays
a part of this fragrance and the animalistic spots of Musk and the
drydown of vanilla.

(Rich) Hippies Rejoice!
Montale PATCHOULI LEAVES offers a lot of dark oily hippie patchouli in a luscious labdanum-amber base with just a touch of sweetness. Wearing this perfume is like wearing an old worn-out sweater that feels cozy and comfortable and even cuddly but is not something that I'd want to don in public. It seems somehow too personal and too suggestive for anywhere but home.

I cannot help chuckling at the reviewer (at another site) who said that this would be great--were it not for the patchouli! I realize that some people do have a patchouli problem, but I think that the name in this case is a sufficent red flag... Recommended for patchouli lovers and hippies, this perfume has excellent longevity and smells totally groovy!
