Olfactory Family: WOODY ORIENTAL
Cinnamon, Bay St-Thomas
Vanilla, Cistus, Incense
‘This wood is a fabulous raw material’ said Patricia de Nicolaï. ‘In a chord, its role is similar to that of a viola in an orchestra – the instrument that leads all the others’. The patchouli is surrounded by an oriental background trimmed with incense and spices. But it avoids lapsing into ordinariness, with its combination of lavender and pelargonium contrasting with the dark wood.
