With Moonlight Patchouli, the perfumer Sonia Constant had the challenging brief of uncovering a new, unexplored facet of the incomparable fragrance of patchouli, one of the world’s best known and loved aromatics. And by Jove, we think she’s got it!
Opulent yet discreet at the same time, this gorgeous scent unfolds as a clutch of aromatic patchouli leaves, earthy and green, wrapped in a subtle floral cloak of Bulgarian rose otto and Florentine iris. The florals create a cloud of white, powdery suede delicacy that softens and sweetens the patchouli, and the patchouli contributes a sturdy earthiness to the florals – a match made in heaven. And in the middle of this delicious white cloud floats an eerie fruit note that when combined with the patchouli smells like chocolate sprinkled with orange peels and dried apricot. Moonlight Patchouli is a sensuous, suede-like, white chocolate patchouli fragrance with a fruit dimension that just might prove to be the baby bear’s porridge of patchouli.
