Patchouli E.O (45% Patchoulol)

Adam Michael has this to say “This patchouli essential oil is sourced from the Indonesian province of Aceh, located at the northern end of Sumatra. Produced by steam distilling the leaves, light yellow in colour, of a pourable viscosity and containing 45% patchoulol which is also known as patchouli alcohol and of which is highly prized, being largely responsible for the heart of patchouli oils. The aroma is a refined balance of fresh, humus and cocoa mild notes and this material will find much use in modern floral, chypre, ambery and woody oriental notes. Highly recommended.”

David Ruskin has this to say “This is very clean, and of good quality. There is none of the “cold lamb fat” note found in poorer grades of patchouli. Indeed there is very little top note at all. It is like patchouli oil French, that was always so much more expensive than “ordinary” patchouli, and so much better. Over time, there is little change, and not much weakening of odour strength. I really like this.”
