Patchouli Nosy Be
This variant is currently sold out
On the island of Nosy Be, just off the west coast of Madagascar, is where you will find a rare and exquisite variety of patchouli, like no other. The island of Nosy Be is famous for its production of high-quality materials used for perfume due to its agreeable climate and abundantly mineral-rich soil. Traditionally, patchouli could not be grown on Nosy Be because the sunlight and heat would dry the leaves of their precious oil. Through extensive work and mastery of craft, a small crop of patchouli was able to be nurtured under the shade of other foliage, and the results are truly breath-taking: Rich, warm and enveloping, and what can only be Patchouli Nosy Be.
Notes from the Playground
Patchouli is an extremely common ingredient in perfumery, but you’ll have never smelt it like this! The Nosy Be Patchouli is unlike any other patchouli, its deeper and a little more bitter, with a dark-chocolate-like smell. Starting fresh with a cool touch of lemon that’s immediately followed by a playful spicy note of pink pepper (shinus molle). Over time the spices fade, and Patchouli Nosy Be incredibly smooth and elegant with a touch of sweetness with the additions of vanilla, amber and musk. This is a fragrance that’s fantastic for year-round daily wear or for adding a unique twist to an old favourite.
