Profumum Roma Patchouly Eau de Parfum is for individuals who love a darker, earthier patchouli with cocoa powder that softens and sweetens because the amber and sandalwood make stronger over the years. The drydown was once most commonly patchouli-amber with darker, extra resinous sweetness and a slightly of spice. The notes are:
best notes: patchouli
middle notes: amber
base notes: sandalwood
It opened with spiced amber and patchouli the place the patchouli got here to the leading edge and left it calmly spiced, earthy, and chocolaty–a dismal, quite sour chocolate. Patchouly shifted from being kind of camphorous over the following hour, nevertheless it was once all the time extra paying homage to unsweetened cocoa. It misplaced a few of its camphorous high quality after an hour because the amber bolstered by way of a couple of levels, however the darkish patchouli remained the celebrity.
Sandalwood crept in after 3 hours of wear and tear, simply slightly in my vary of detection, so the composition endured to be earthy cocoa with amber and sandalwood filling within the background. There was once little development till the drydown, the place the amber intensified in opposition to the patchouli, warming it and including a bit spice and sweeter undertones however retained an even quantity of earthiness even because the hours wore on.
For checking out, I used part of a 1ml pattern vial dabbed to the bottom and topside of my wrist space on my left arm. I used an unscented moisturizer previous to making use of the fragrance as this may be my swatching arm (aka, extremely parched at any given second) as I discovered fragrance didn’t dangle smartly right here differently.
It lasted for 5 hours till it was once a skin-scent and about 8 hours earlier than it was once relatively tricky to hit upon on my pores and skin. The sillage and projection have been reasonable with the sillage shedding quicker than the projection inside the first hour of wear and tear.
Soliflores, like Patchouly, are very good for fragrance schooling on how positive notes play out, and this was once one I used to be keen to take a look at. In comparison to one thing like Jovoy Psychedelique, I discovered this to have a more potent cocoa issue that toned down the loamier qualities of the darker patchouli notice. If Profumum Roma wasn’t extremely dear, this will surely be top on my record of patchouli scents to shop for, however I’d like to check extra from their catalog earlier than committing!
