Mazzolari's Patchouli

While beginning with a rather pungent patchouli attack, Mazzolari's is actually surprisingly a round, soft patchouli. There is very little in the way of evolution, so don't expect a cast of character to participate in what would be a rather epic journey (most patchoulis last literally forever). Benzoin is perhaps the most noticeable element to join in patchouli's wine-like, fermented-berry qualities. Labdanum further adds to its resinous, honeyed notes. Rich, smooth, linear and strangely comforting, this patchouli is sure to satisfy the craving yet without raising any suspicion that you're trying to mask a certain habit. Amber makes it sweet and warm as could ever be, truly rounding off the dry, bitter and earthy-dusty notes that patchouli often times has. And honey renders it almost edible, resulting in a patchouli single-note that is luxurious, majestic patchouli at its best.

Notes: Patchouli, Benzoin, Labdanum, Amber, Honey.
