It definitely smelled like pachouli. It wasn't a scent that I personally care for, but I'm sure some people would like it.
Molinard Patchouli Eau de Parfum
This scent is heavy and thick. It reminds me of either my grandfather's after shave or some incense from the 70's. I truly can't imagine being stuck in an elevator with someone wearing this. On the plus side, it doesn't wash off easily so if you like the scent you will get a lot of bang for your buck.
If you LIKE patchouli
I don't understand these negative reviews! Why would you purchase patchouli if you don't like the fragrance? It's a very distinctive smell that almost everyone is familiar with- you like it or you don't. But, it seems disingenuous to write a negative review when it is exactly what it's supposed to be! I love it. Hope we get stuck in a long elevator ride together one day!
Really nice scent, heavy for summer
I think this scent is better for fall or winter rather than a summer scent. But I do like the scent.
Not for me
I did not like the smell of this perfume at all! It sounded like it would be perfect, but I found it very off putting.
