Patchouli Fragrance Oil
Choose a Variant

Generally associated with the flower child era of the 1960s, Patchouli is making a comeback! This fragrance oil begins with rich spice notes of ginger, cinnamon, and clove that give way to a strong core of patchouli with traces of jasmine. Warm, woody base notes of oud, amber, and even more patchouli add to this earthy, nostalgic scent.

Create high-end candles, melts, and reed diffusers with this sophisticated blend of cedarwood, clove, and patchouli essential oils. Lightly scented soaps, scrubs and lotions give off a timeless scent all year long. While exquisite on its own, patchouli is a favorite for blending with other fragrances by adding a rich base note. Patchouli is an upscale free spirited fragrance that works beautifully in modern settings.

This fragrance is infused with natural essential oils, including patchouli, clove, and cedarwood.

Blends well with: Saffron Cedarwood, Amber Noir, Lavender, Rose Petals, Seaside Plumeria

Alternative branding ideas: Woodstock, Flower Child

Revising my first impression Review

So originally the out of the bottle scent threw me for a spiral and I didn’t understand how the scent I was thinking of was this smell.

I know to never judge a scent purely by the bottle scent but at the time I just thought it was so far off it was impossible.

I STAND CORRECTED. I still made a candle last night and test burned it this morning, it was JUST what I was looking for. I did over react because I’ve had a lot of people asking for and waiting for this scent, and now that I have test burned it I think they’ll all be very happy. GIVE IT A CHANCE.

Change of heart

I gave this scent a bad review before, but having received a bottle of Dark Patchouli EO from another wholesaler, this scent is exactly the same! If this smells just like the EO, it's a great product. I will buy more.

Flat Soda

I was hyped, reading the other reviews, but when my 16oz bottle came, it just smelled like flat Coca Cola. Luckily I had a small amount of Moon Lake Musk to mix with this Patchouli, so that I could make a custom blend for my handmade soaps for a local Psychic Festival. I have so much of this, and many of my customers have asked for Patchouli, but I'll have to mix it with something else to use it.

Please Keep This Fragrance

I always enjoy this fragrance. It fills a large room no problem. It's earthy, minty and spicy all in one. I love it! Got a big compliment when someone walked in the house. They really liked it.

I don't know what real Patchouli supposed to smell like but from all the review I've read and the sample I have from another company. It should be wonderful and I'd love to try it. I love all of the FOs I ordered from Candle science so far so I jump in with the 16oz. I received it today and it definitely don't smell like any of the review descriptions. It smells like vitamin B-Complex, if you ever take it you'll know what I'm talking about. Very strong Chemical/Medicine/Hospital type smell. I don't know if I got the bad one or not but definitely not a fan.

Smells Really Nice

I will totally buy this again. I'm into complex scents in the 'musky', 'earthy', and 'herbal' categories. Candle Science's "Patchouli" oil has a nice strong scent throw. It smells a little like "Library" to me, but with a touch of coolness, like a hint of fresh mint leaf. I diffused this oil in the house and had no complaints at all. I truly enjoyed it.
