Patchouli is a plant that grows in Indonesia, China and India. During the Middle Ages, its leaves were used by precious cloth traders to protect the fabrics they were importing from insects during long ship voyages into Europe. Its smell was immediately associated with the preciousness of the objects it was protecting. Nowadays, patchouli is one of the most used oils in the world of perfumeries. Its woody and undergrowth smell, with a hint of bitter chocolate is an excellent background ingredient.

About Alyssa Ashley

Having acquired Maison Houbigant in the 1960s, artist Enrico Donati dedicated a line of fragrances to his daughter, Alyssa (nicknamed Ashley), birthing an icon of the swinging '60s with its notorious Musk! Over 50 years later, Musk still flourishes, while Alyssa Ashley remains a joyful ode to freedom and creativity.
