When I first smelled this scent my first thoughts were "Want it. Now!!!" This is very strange for me because I am admittedly not a fan of patchouli at all, and patchouli comprises the base of this scent. It's a complex scent and I'm in absolute love with it!
The best way I can describe is patchouli transformed. While these is no doubt patchouli fans will adore this scent, it's quite likely that people that don't typically like it will as well. The labdanum and tonka absolute at the heart of this fragrance mellow the patchouli, and the grapefruit oil brightens it considerably. Patchouli is the earth component and grapefruit is the sky component. Labdanum and tonka absolute lie at the horizon where earth and sky meet. This scent is a divine masterpiece!
The notes of this fragrance are patchouli oil, labdanum resinoid, tonka absolute, grapefruit oil, and tiny hint of anise. Compare to Lush® brand Rentless™
