about / pachooli /
The name, scent and history.
Moist dark earthy basement, balsamic and herbaceous with a minty woody undertone
The name / pachooli / comes from the old Tamil words ‘patchai’ meaning ‘green’ and ‘ellai’ meaning ‘leaf’. The highest quality oil is obtained from only 3-4 top pairs of mature tree leaves, where the highest concentration of the purest oil is found. An intricate process of drying and turning prevents rapid fermentation and after following a precise method the leaves release their intense aroma. Only a small number of distilleries are specialized in producing this highly refined extract, which finds its use in haute perfumery.
Ingredients: Crushed patchouli flower petals blended in a mixture of sandalwood and sweet almond oil.
