extrait
Hindu Grass is designed perfectly for the extrait concentration. It's based on a camphorous, thick patchouli.  The patchouli is manipulated to have a very strong presence close to the skin but not leave much of a wake.  There's not a doubt in the world that this is a patchouli perfume, but it is very well edited.  Potent, but not overbearing.  Unmistakeable, but not without subtlety.  This is exactly where the extrait concentration is killer.  It’s a personal message and you must be close enough to look the wearer in the eye to understand her true intent. It's camphorous without smelling like mothballs. It's cool and soil-like without seeming dirty.  

A brilliant modulation of the classic hippie patch.  It reads like the hippie chick returning to the fold and going straight.  She's seen Paris, and the country club set knows it.

Short-lived fleeting herbal smoke.
Hindu Grass is a beautifully constructed but short-lived herbal patchouli scent.

Hindu Grass can open your mind,it can sweep away the disturbing thoughts,it can fill you up with peace and stillness.This perfume has a meditative aura,the mild earthy smoke calming and wakes up the senses.

In this mild blend the notes seamlessly mixed together,this down to earth patchouli accented with the melancholic spiced tobacco haze.They just perfectly merges together with the uplifting minty green shades.This warm herbal haze settles into a gentle green- amber shadow what is absolutely stunning to my nose.My biggest disappointment, this strange beauty has no lasting power,neither projection on me.:(I could be part of this miracle only just two short hours:( I wish I had more power of this essence!

With every inhale of Hindu Grass,you can soaked yourself with the Earth's vibrations,excluded the noisy outside world for a moment.

What a pity for being so ephemeral!:(

Dichotomous delight
If you want an "intellectual" scent, love patchouli & want a change of direction from the normal oriental & chypre blends in which it usually appears then it is worth tracking down Hindu Grass.

HG is both sun-warmed & slate-cold, sharp & cosy, luminous yet grounded. Intruiging, verdant, arid, elegant & totally unisex.

HG opens with an almost nutty dryness & a distinct lack of sugar - all parched terracotta tiles & dusty hay fields. It's a quirky opener that hooks you in from the start.

This lasts but a minute or two when a high, thin sweet note appears along with a naturalistic almost zesty greeness. Imagine crushing bitter-sweet leaves & in your hands - the dry & oily kind with a touch of lime peel....no sign of lush, wet greens here.

As it warms to the skin the bitter, fragrant leaves unfurl & the perfume develops into a two-tiered affair. It conjurs up an intimate olfactory trip around a plant's anatomy.

Rooted in at the base is an earthy & grounded patchouli with a touch of sweet, cosy tobacco - ochre in colour with the silky dryness of powdered terracotta clay.

Floating high above is the canopy of the scent - shimmering like a dry heat-haze. A luminous, thin floral mirage hovers above a lively, bitter-green. HG is deceptively bold in character & volume despite the natural feel & weightlessness. For such a delicate "plant" it has a lot of voice when it blooms.

The perfumey-character that develops threatens to take-over at times, but never reaches the anticipated headache-inducing, hi-jack phase. It is like meeting a very large tiger only to find its growl is more like a kitten's purr. Delightfully, relievingly unexpected.

HG is not a try-hard scent but it is an oddity which is just suprising enough to give your olfactorary system a work-out. It sharpens your senses without becoming insulting & troublesome - HG is a good-natured, naturalistic scent - and ultimately remains very wearable.

The lasting power is pretty good & the projection is suprisingly bold. A wonderful dichotomous scent. Maybe not best in show, but certainly worth a silver-gilt.
