One of the main elements of classic perfumery is quintessential Patchouli, a very precious extract with unique characteristics. Patchouli is a perennial herbaceous plant whose leaves are dried and fermented to extract the amber-coloured essential oil. Pogostemon Cablin—this is its botanical name—grows wild, at between 900 and 1800 metres above sea level in South-East Asia. Patchouli became popular at the end of the 1960s thanks to the hippy movement, and was the scent of India evoking a fascination with oriental culture. It became the symbol of a bohemian lifestyle, wafting into the most exclusive parties of the Film and Music world. It was the first unisex perfume in modern history, which we now glorify with this artistic creation: Woodstock Patchouli. The essence opens up decisively and evocatively, echoing strong hints of Red Patchouli embraced by the persuasiveness of Jasmine Sambac and Date, emphasised in turn by the strength of Rum and Plum. The heart of the creation picks up the thread of the fragrance, opening with the strength of precious Indian Patchouli together with the aromatic contrast of Nutmeg and Oman Incense, underpinned by Virginia Cedar. This sumptuous celebration of hippy culture has solid foundations represented by powerful Malaysian Patchouli, mellowed by Vanilla Berries from Madagascar and emphasised by the magical aphrodisiac drop from the Terenzi library, composed of Musk and Ambergris. Woodstock Patchouli is the emblem of the Bohemian spirit that lives in those who are audacious!
