Ten sophisticated, earthy and musky perfumes containing patchouli05.09.2022
Patchouli fragrances tend to be part of the musky, floral, and woody fragrance families.
The earthy and slightly sweet notes of this plant are easily recognizable in perfumes when it is present in high concentrations. Because of its depth, this plant is often used as a base and middle note in many top perfumes for women, such as Lancome’s La Vie Est Belle, Gucci Guilty, Chanel No. Creed Aventus For Her, 5, and Creed Est Belle for Women.
Geza Schoen, creator of Escentric Molecules, explains that patchouli is a unique natural that has been extracted from the patchouli leaves. It has a cool, almost aloof woodiness. Its moody beauty is what I love about it. Contrary to 99% of perfume ingredients it is associated with a specific period, the sixties and seventh centuries, and that bohemian spirits.” Patchouli is a common scent in many men’s colognes. It often reminds us of loved ones and family.
“Patchouli is a woody note but it also has depths of green and spice that give it interesting effects,” says Ruth Mastenbroek. The patchouli plant is closely related to other aromatic plants such as lavender and sage. This makes it a versatile ingredient. Patchouli is known for its ability to balance and ground moods, as well as being calming and relaxing.
10 BEAUTIFUL PATCHOULI PERFUMES, CHOSEN BY THE BEAUTY EXPERTS
1. SANA JARDIN EAU DE PARFUM CELESTIAL PAATCHOULI SANA JARDIN
Overall, best perfume with patchouli
It is difficult to choose the best perfume because each one is subjective. Celestial Patchouli is a standout, because it is simply beautiful. For a sophisticated and elegant scent, Patchouli is surrounded with rose, cedarwood and a little cinnamon.
Our beauty editor loved the fragrance so much that she immediately bought it for her holiday. Sana Jardin’s social and sustainable credentials are also worth mentioning. It allows its floral harvesters to make additional income by selling products made of the waste created during fragrance creation.
2. INITIO PARFUMS PRIVES REHAB EXTRAIT DE PERFUME
Luxury perfume made with patchouli
Rehab is a divine blend of patchouli and creamy musk with hints of vanilla sweetness. It promises an “ecstatic return of the pleasure of perfume” and it delivers. It is warm, musky and woody. And most importantly, it’s completely unique.
It is definitely the most expensive round-up item, although this may be due to its Extrait De Parfum. These have higher concentrations than Eau De Toilette and Eau De Parfum, so they last longer on the skin. We were still able smell it the next morning. If you’re wondering which perfume lasts the longest, here’s your answer. This is a luxurious perfume if you are looking for something extra special. This is a bold, beautiful statement scent.
3. ZARA FLEUR DE PATCHOULI EDP
Best affordable perfume made with patchouli
The eight scents Zara by Jo Malone CBE created to prove that cheerful and cheap fragrances don’t have to be cheerful and cheap are these delightful patchouli fragrances.
Fleur de Patchouli is a sweet, but not sickly, scent that reminds us of summertime spent outside and sun-soaked festivals. Although it is lighter than most perfumes, this scent lasts a long time. It’s a great everyday spritzer and is affordable for most budgets.
4. JO LOVES CEDAR AND COBALT PATCHOULI
Best fresh perfume with patchouli
This relative new fragrance from Jo Malone CBE may be familiar to you if you are a fan of her perfumes. If not, we recommend you to look into it.
Cobalt Patchouli & Cedar opens with a wonderful crispness and freshness upon first spraying. This is due to Jo’s favourite notes, grapefruit and vetiver. The comforting combination of patchouli, cedar and cedar gradually fades away while still maintaining a fresh and clean scent. It is evident that this scent was inspired by optimism and the possibilities of blue skies. However, it can be used anytime for a quick mood lift.
5. ESCENTRIC MOLECULES MOLECULES 01+ PATCHOULI EAU DE TOILETTE
Best perfume for layering
Popular fan favorites include the simple comfort of Woody Escentric Molecules 01, which is known for its straightforward comfort. However, this new twist adds patchouli to the mix – which has two distinct qualities. Schoen says that Patchouli Coeur is the largest chunk. This patchouli oil fraction has had its camphor-like top notes stripped out. It creates a lighter, more sophisticated scent profile.
“I also added a patchouli oil, from Indonesia, to give it a little more of a top note.” Molecule + Patchouli is all about balance. A little bit of the borneol/camphor top note gives it a lift. Our verdict? This is a great option if you want to put patchouli front and center in a pleasant and affordable fragrance.
6. AESOP ROZU EAU DE PARFUM
Best unisex fragrance with patchouli
Technically, any perfume is an unisex fragrance. However, there are perfumes that work better with this label. Aesop’s Rozu, a fragrance that evokes “the whole life cycle of a rose,” is a sensual, floral, spicy and slightly smoky scent.
It has a woody base that pairs patchouli with myrrh and vetiver, and it lasts for hours. It’s fine to wear at any time of the year, but this is a great addition to your perfume collection as we move towards winter.
7. RUTH MASTENBROEK SIGNATURE EAU DE PARFUM
Best niche perfume made with patchouli
Signature by Ruth Mastenbroek, a beautiful and upbeat option that celebrates patchouli’s earthy elegance with a supporting cast floral and woody notes, is an excellent choice. Mastenbroek says, “I wanted to conjure up the feeling of meandering though a forest on an Autumn day, with the crunch and wet leaves, soil, and moss underfoot.”
Patchouli is unique because it adds warmth, texture, depth, and light to the dish. Bergamot and rose also bring light and freshness. These are the sun shining through the trees. Signature is complete with a spicy pink pepper. It surprises the senses from the first spray. We think that the best patchouli perfumes are complemented by citrus and florals that are more elegant, but we have yet to find one this beautiful.
8. JO MALONE LONDON ENGLISH EAR & FREESIA COLOGNE
Best fruity perfume made with patchouli
For those who love fruity perfumes, this is a well-recognized classic. It has a fruity scent with a touch of patchouli added to add a little more depth. Although it is a cologne, it is definitely lighter than many Jo Malone perfumes. However, we love the way it combines the freshness of a pear with floral and woody notes for a balanced scent.
It’s a popular product, but it doesn’t make it a bad thing. We view that as a sign of its greatness. It’s also available in this fluted bottle for a limited time. This is a modern twist on the Jo Malone London design.
9. COCHINE VANILLE & TABACO NOIR EAU DE PARFUM
Best vanilla perfume with patchouli
The timeless combination of vanilla and tobacco is an iconic fragrance combination. With its bittersweet sweetness, perfume lovers all over the world love it. Versatile patchouli is often used as a complementary note in top vanilla perfumes.
Cochine’s Vanille Tabac Noir by Cochine is a deliciously warming fragrance that makes for a great evening spritz. The patchouli works in harmony with cedar and tonka and spicy cardamom, making it a complex and beautiful scent. Although it’s bold, it is a wonderful scent that lasts all day.
10. CONFESSIONS OF A REBEL MORNING EAU DE PARFUM
Freshest perfume made with patchouli
The name of this perfume is up to you, but we will let you know that it is incredibly fresh. Patchouli opens with the fresh, clean scents of lemon and vanilla. Geranium and tonka beans follow.
Although it may be a bit too masculine for some, it has a sweetness and brand notes that make it a popular choice among both men and women. It would be great layered with floral or rose fragrances to sweeten it. It’s addictive, and people will be eager to find out what your scent is.
