Brand Christian Dior
Potent and sensual, Patchouli is an essential House of Dior ingredient that took up its place at the beginning of the New Look revolution in 1947.
Full of elegance, François Demachy's composition, Patchouli Impérial, is a celebration of this legendary oriental ingredient with notes as sultry as they are sophisticated. "Patchouli is a major note, the most animal of all the plant notes. It is refined, revealing unprecedented elegance."
This review has nothing to do with my transaction with Scent Split, which was great. Now to the fragrance: There’s not much going on with this one. If you enjoy that plasticity note that seems to be in a lot of Dior’s these days and patchouli, you might like this. It’s not a big dose of patchouli, just a bit, with a lot of that yucky plastic smell. Not for me!
Perfume longevity and sillage was rather weak on my skin.
