I think I must be a latter-day hippie because I love patchouli!
I don't really know how it started, but I bought a rose and patchouli perfume a few years ago and I think that was the start of my obsession.
Patchouli is a plant of the mint family.
It grows in tropical climes.
Oil is distilled from the leaves of the plant.
Its essence has been used for centuries as a perfume.
Some describe its scent as pungent, mossy and musty.
It is the smell of the 60's?
Patchouli is a great partner for other scents, rose as I mentioned above and there are a few more here that I have personally experienced.
A couple of soaps from three of my favorite soap makers -
|lime and patchouli soap from new earth soaps|
|patchouli lemengrass soap from inner earth soaps|
|orange bloosom and patchouli handwash from kussen|
Kussen also has some patchouli shampoo which I might have to try.
And I found these divine candles made by a local team.
