Adam Michael has this to say “Patchouli is a material I became aware of when I took charge of Hermitage over 10 years ago and it was instant love. What always fascinated me was how this aroma held my attention, how I would struggle to find any keywords to describe this material and instead found myself talking about feelings, about scenarios and atmospheres I had lived and how this material somehow captured the essence of that moment. Now as I write on 5/3/16 I once more find myself in patchouli heaven as this natural isolate of patchoulol obtained from patchouli fractions is nothing short of utterly exquisite.
The opening notes are heavenly warm musk and incense infused oriental, with a gorgeous fruity floral finish of wine like qualities. In the heart I am dazzled by a splashing of refreshing water mist, mouth-watering fruits, ambergris softness and complimented with rich Oriental character along with water rose floral dewiness that is absolutely breath taking. The base notes are vetivert refined earthy, ambergris, balsamic, incense and again rich Oriental.
Used for injecting aged vintage patchouli qualities into other lesser patchouli materials, for building dusty effects, improving earthy notes, adding ethereal floral quality to top notes, improving gourmand accords, especially those that are cocoa rich, adding warmth to fruit berry notes and for building Oriental incense rich bases. The colour is pale yellow of a pourable viscosity and this material has excellent fixative value.”
Extracted from patchouli essential oil.

It is a warm, slightly sweet Patchouli fragrance. To me patchoulol N.I. is much more attractive than patchouli. The good notes of patchouli are preserved and the strong, pungent patchouli notes are missing.

Patchouli… so distinct and overpowering. Compared to essential oil this natural isolate is more medicinal, sweeter (but not sweet per se, but gently akin to sweet smelling plastic materials). More like the forest’s air and less like its decaying floor – it is still earthy, but less harsh as the essential oil. Scent of the essential oil and its overwhelming fullness makes me slightly nauseous, this isolate is kinder, fresher and cleaner, more dewy and less messy. There is something about Patchouli that reminds me of chewing gum, not a scent, it’s more like a texture and it is less pronounced in this natural isolate than in the essential oil. Patchouli lovers will love this one, for sure.

Rich musky patchouli with some leathery vibes at the background but i also get some mossy green/earthy almost vetiver dusty atmosphere..a truly oriental beauty..
