I love it. But I've only smelled it once. And it might have been mixed with something, because it wasn't this "strong heavy smell" that everyone on this thread seems to be talking about...

You know, you are correct in the sides of Patchouli. I have been selling oils for years, and I have heard either one side or the other. Personally, I think it is too strong, but I have had some of my better sales with those who like it. I personally would not wear it, but if someone asks for it, I would not hesitate to get it for my clients.

i looooove patchouli. i like to put a dab of patchouli on and then spray something flowery on top, like LuxuryTravel mentioned. i also like to use the Kiss My Face Peacefule Patchouli deoderant. it's got a nice subtle scent. i love it! patchouli is also my favorite type of incense.

I used to like it but now it has a bad association for me. It is too strong.

I've always wondered, is Patchouli really that intense a scent, or do these ppl just smother it on that thick?

Either way, every time I've smelled Patchouli(usually someone sitting next to me in a crowded theater), I've felt nauseous due to it's intensity, also due to the fact that everytime I've smelt it, it's accompanied by intense B.O.

So intense Patchouli + intense B.O. = barf

Love! (When it's not mixed with B.O., of course!)

You might be right, chocobo. I think "hippies" tend to wear it and I it does smell like most people bathe in it. Give me New West. smile

I like patchouli, but mixed with something like vanilla, frankincense, or sandalwood.

It is best, in my opinion, when mixed with vanilla and frankincense. 5 drops of each in my fragrance oil burner and I am happy as a clam.

Hmmmm......wait......how do we know clams are happy?

Patchouli does have a "dirt" quality---it smells like wild, earthy exotic sex! I like it with vanilla and amber and almond, or under a spicy oriental like Obsession or Halston.

I absolutely love Patchouli and when I buy it from Whole foods I put a few drops in my shampoo bottle so that my hair smells like Patchouli or put a few drops in my bath water. smile
