There are only about ten fragrances I think I could wear for the rest of my life, and Patiala is one of them. The more I wear it, the more I love it. The aldehydes are the star of the show, and even though they're listed as top notes, I can smell them through the entire wear. I rarely wear this on its own—I usually spray this first and then will layer PDM's Meliora or BDK's Pas Ce Soir, and they really take those fragrances to the next level. When layered, the aldehydes in Patiala lend a clean/soapy quality to other fragrances, which I really love.
