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

This one is good

I have never been much for patchouli but this one grew on me. I liked it once I had it out of the bottle and in a candle. I did blend it with another scent to tone it down some which may be why I now enjoy it. The throw is good and it is my best seller. I will continue to buy this one.

Sweet and Earthy

I've never been a fan of patchouli, but this has turned me around and is quickly becoming a favorite with my customers! I found it a little strong in the bottle, but in candle form it softens and has a sweetness that is so soothing! I use GB 464 and 1oz FO per lb is a perfect ratio. Bot CT and HT carry nicely.
Love, love, love!

Love but discolors wax

LOVE this patchouli oil - I blend it with a few other FO's, but unfortunately have had some retailers complain that it discolors the soy wax yellow after it has been on the shelf for awhile. I think it is connected to light heat oxidization/exposure, but even the label on the bottle has turned yellow. Has anyone else had this same issue? It's the only oil I can point to thats causing it... unfortunately I will have to reformulate due to product being returned because of the discoloration.

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.
