Patchouli Leaves by Montale is an Amber Woody fragrance for women and men. Patchouli Leaves was launched in 2006. The nose behind this fragrance is Pierre Montale. Beautiful Patchouli Leaves macerated for two years in the trunk of an Oak Tree combined with Vanilla, Amber, and White Musk on a base of Cystus Ladaniferus from Tibet.
Patchouli Leaves opens on my skin with a spicy, slightly smoky, mellow rich warmth that floods over me like the deepest, smoothest wave of brown-gold-red lava. It’s quickly infused by rich Bourbon vanilla, boozy aged cognac, and a distinctly toffee’d nuttiness. It smells like pralines, vanilla, and toffee’d woods, flecked lightly by a smoky incense. Deep down in its depths lurks a balsamic, ambered resin with a faintly leathered element. The labdanum amber isn’t detectable in its own right, and you never think, “oh, amber,” but the dark, chewy note runs like a deep vein through the base, giving off a toffee, nutty aroma that amplifies the same characteristics in the patchouli.
Montale Patchouli Leaves by Montale Perfume. Montale Patchouli Leaves is a warm, balsamic woody scent for women released in 2006 by the brand Montale. The main scent note for this perfume is a very pure patchouli, which takes the starring role more than it does in other perfumes. Its heady fragrance brings to mind the bush it is harvested from, which originated in tropical regions in Asia. It also includes the mellower scents of amber and vanilla, which balance out the spicy patchouli with their creamy notes. The base is musk and labdanum, which add an animalic and resinous aroma. The heavy sillage makes this a scent to spray lightly, so it does not overpower the senses.
