If you love the smell of Patchouli you will be captivated by this aged version! We currently offer two types of Patchouli essential oil, a 5 year that is aging beautifully, and this Patchouli Dark (Vintage 2006) gracefully aged.
Although both possess the unique and unmistakable Patchouli aroma, the aged version has no rough edges and is highly suited for luxury perfumery. Patchouli lovers will adore the extraordinarily longer lingering aroma that is creamy smooth with a somewhat floral fruity bouquet. When used as a base note one should still exercise frugality because Patchouli of any age can easily overpower a blend.
Aged Patchouli essential oil develops a rich and luxurious aroma the older it gets. One could say much like fine wine that improves with age. To make a comparison, young patchouli is "Haight-Ashbury" while aged patchouli is suave "New York 5th Avenue" or the "Champs-Élysées in Paris".
