Tom Ford's White PatchouliWednesday, November 19, 2008
I have to admit that it took a couple of days for this scent to grow on me, but I do like it. This woodsy floral is intended to be a companion to his previously released Black Orchid. Of the two scents I prefer the White Patchouli.
While based largely on patchouli, I have to say that this fragrance is a much more chic than the typical patchouli scent. The balance of the white florals against the patchouli is truly what keeps me from feeling like a walking incense burner when I'm wearing this fragrance.
While the most dominant note in this scent is definitely Patchouli, it does become a bit more subdued with time. Within about 30 minutes or so the Patchouli fades a bit into the background, allowing a bit more Jasmine and Peony. The balance of the two is definitely a subtle scent that I love wearing everyday to work!
Top Notes: Bergamot, White Peony, Coriander
Middle Notes: Rose Absolute, Night Blooming Jasmine, Ambrette Seed
Base Notes: Patchouli Orpur, Blonde Woods, Incense
