My brother in law adores patchouli, and my sister would like to buy him a perfume for Christmas. She’s not into perfume, and I’m not much of a fan of patchouli, so I’m hoping for recommendations here from people who are. Any suggestions? Budget is up to around £200. Thank you!
Of course taste for perfume is very personal. So it is hard to find a good match. Still, here’s a few suggestions. Hope it helps
Patchouli Intense Eau de Parfum from a niche house that has received great praise. It’s masculine and has a unique, complex scent. My personal favorite at the moment.
Maybe more unisex than masculine, but very well known and with great ratings across the boards is Coromandel Eau de Parfum
For a more affordable and classic gentleman style: Héritage Eau de Toilette
From a more fashionable brand (although patchouli is always a bit dusty) Patchouli Absolu
good luck with finding a nice gift!
Thank you. That's really helpful. What I think I'll suggest to my sister is that she gets samples of some 'likely suspects' including your suggestions, and lets her husband experiment and make his own choice with her. I know that's what I'd want if someone was planning a perfume gift for me (if only!).
That is a great idea, very thoughtful. I would prefer it that way too. Good luck!
