I am so torn on this one. It is absolutely glorious, delicious, and evocative and one of the best scents I've ever tried for the few hours, but then the patchouli emerges with gusto on the long term dry down. I say long term because it was a few hours before it showed up so strong. I'm not a fan of patchouli, as it goes dank dirty hippie on my skin and I could still smell the patch the next morning (immediate scrub required). I keep trying scents with patch, hoping it will grow on me, but it never does unless it's very well hidden. But....if YOU like patchouli, this is a MUST TRY. It really is an incredible scent.
