Rooted in the tropics of Madagascar, our PATCHOULI will take you on a journey to NOSY BE (an island off the west coast of Madagascar), also known as the “Scented Island”, due to the intense aroma of ylang ylang flowers that fills the air.
PATCHOULI NOSY BE is the perfect balance between tradition and revolution.
The process that led to the creation of this new and unique quality of patchouly is a long and laborious journey: NOSY BE PATCHOULI grows in the shade of ylang ylang trees, protecting it from direct sunlight, thus being able to grow despite the hostile climate. Growing in a different environment than the traditional one, this patchouli has developed unique olfactory properties, losing the classic camphor aroma and emphasizing nuances of bitter cocoa and sandalwood. The PATCHOULI of NOSY BE is a demanding plant, and the inhabitants of NOSE BY master its secrets.
The perfume is a perfect composition of floral and woody notes structured in great harmony to create this aromatic dream.
PATCHOULI NOSY BE has unique and natural characteristics and is enriched with spicy and exceptional notes, while the woody notes enhance the nuances of bitter cocoa and the background is completed by laudanum and vanilla.
The essential oil of patchouly is extracted by distillation from the dried stems and leaves of the plant. Patchouly is credited with aphrodisiac properties.
