Parfums de Nicolaï introduced their new masculine fragrance called Patchouli Homme yesterday. You can read an earlier teaser about the cologne here.
Patchouli Homme is based on a patchouli-rose accord and is launched with the tag line "Roses for men, why not!". As perfumer Patricia de Nicolaï said,
"Patchouli oil is a raw material of great importance in the perfumer's palette. It plays as first violin in the orchestra. Patchouli has many facets. There is always more to discover its damp, wet, mossy, dry, almost dusty earthiness. It evokes power and depth." ...
The fragrance centers on patchouli which is dubbed the "cornerstone" of the composition. The note is blended with frankincense and sandalwood from Mysore. The opening rests on lavender, Turkish rose and geranium Bourbon. A spicy facet evolves thanks to bay oil and cinnamon oil. "Beginning with an orange flavour, a deep leather note establishes its masculinity. Wrapped in amber and vanilla, this fragrance stimulates your senses as soon as you uncork the flask: a pure folly!"
Patchouli Homme is exclusively available through the Parfums-de-Nicolaï boutiques in 50 ml and 100 ml sizes. The 100 ml Eau de Toilette is priced at 87 €.
