Birchbox Breakdown

Long before the advent of peace signs and flower children, patchouli served as a key component in the making of Chinese incense. This fragrance harkens back to that mystical beginning, pairing the woodsy scent of patchouli with coriander, vanilla, and leather to bring out its various layers. The resulting aroma is a far cry from flower power: Imagine an English explorer’s very first whiff of the port in Old Shanghai.

How to Use

Spritz sparingly onto pulse points, like your wrists and neck. As your parents found in their heydey, patchouli is rather potent, so start small and work up to your desired strength.

Alcohol Denat., Parfum (fragrance), Aqua (water), Alpha Isomethylionone, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Alpha Hexyl Cinnamaldehyde, Citronellol, Linalool, Geraniol, Coumarin, Hydroxycitronella, Cinnamyl Alcohol, Benzyl Salicylate, Limonene, Benzyl Benzoate, Eugenol

Very interesting scent

I like this scent, but I don't think it suits me personally. It's very strong at first, but softens a little over time. Patchouli is definitely the strongest aspect.
