Acqua di Colonia Patchouli is characterized by top notes of geranium and bergamot. The middle welcomes the protagonist, patchouli, accompanied by jasmine. The base notes include patchouli again, with sandalwood and musk. The oriental woody notes evoke the lands of origin of this plant: in traditional Asian medicine, patchouli is an element that can positively influence the balance of body and psyche, completing the olfactory landscape of these places.

Un patchouli incredibile

Il patchouli è il mio profumo preferito. Lo porto da anni, ho appena scoperto il profumo “patchouli” dell’ Officina di Santa Maria Novella ed è proprio il migliore fra tutti i patchouli che ho avuto! Un pure sogno olfattivo!

My absolute favorite

The entire patchouli line is wonderful. Love the way the patchouli and jasmine support each other in the middle notes. Scent is not overwhelming and long-lasting. I wear it every day.

Love it

Love this fragrance that is verry long lasting

best patchouli

This is the closest one can get to a pure patchouli essential oil but without the oily texture. I consider it more masculine but can work very well for women too in a dark, musky way. I never run out of this stuff

Samuel Hunt
The Ne Plus Ultra of Patchouli!

I adore patchouli, but have lamented its association with the kinds of one-note, overwhelming, and cheap "hippy" oils one finds fumigating college dorms. By contrast, Santa Maria Novella's patchouli is elegant, earthy, and warm.
This is the only patchouli that I have ever worn that people will stop and ask me about. It is patchouli the way it is meant to be worn.
There is nothing synthetic-smelling or cloying about this gorgeous fragrance. It is sublime in every way.
