Aromatic - Woody Oriental Notes
I have been using this Patchouli for many years as it was top of the top patchouli's. I always use the big bottle. In 2023 SMN introduced a new bottle and in my opinion it was a bad decision. The old bottles were more elegant, whereas the new ones have stickers which fade and get destroyed very easily. A plus is the new atomizer as the old ones sometimes leaked. However, the old ones sprayed more liquid in one push - I used to buy a bottle once per 3 months and now I do it once every 6 months. This is probably not too good for the SMN so why have they done it? And last but not least - once the bollte changed, I beleive the smell also changed - in my opinion it is not the same fragrance as it used to be, or at least I feel a difference. Maybe there were some legal regulations which imposed changes in content of these perfumes or else it was a poor business decision. Nevertheless it is still very long lasting. All in all I still use this fragrance and I like it very much!
J'achète ce patchouli depuis des années en provenance de l'officine Santa Maria Novella. Cette fois ci j'ai commandé le petit flacon de 50ml pour le glisser dans mon sac.
Je constate cependant avec surprise que le parfum qui se dégage du flacon n'est pas le même que celui auquel je suis habituée. C'est à dire celui du flacon de 100ml.
D'où mon interrogation est ce le même ???
It's the Ferrari of patchoulis. The best.
Il patchouli è il mio profumo preferito. Lo porto da anni, ho appena scoperto il profumo “patchouli” dell’ Officina di Santa Maria Novella ed è proprio il migliore fra tutti i patchouli che ho avuto! Un pure sogno olfattivo!
