Pierre Guillaume Paris – PG08 – Intrigant Patchouli
Family: Animalic, patchouli, chypre
This is the seventies in a bottle – tie-die patchouli, flowers, ginger, sandalwood, and the animal funk of unwashed underwear after three days in a tent at Woodstock. If you’re looking for a groovy, almost vintage-style patchouli chypre, then look no further. Stunning stuff on a boy or a girl.
WHAT IT SMELLS LIKE
Dark, dank patchouli – the genuine, 1970’s earthy stuff – is given a powdery, retro edge by benzoin resin. Sandalwood and musk in the base add a certain intimate furriness, like the tender underbelly of your favourite cat. Ginger, civet, and musk lend a suggestive, animalic edge to the patchouli-musk mixture, making it a perfect choice for those among us who prefer their chypres with a huge dose of sensuality. Dense, lush, and dirty in a vintage way, this is one animalic patchouli chypre to keep you warm during the cold winter months. A modern classic, we say.
