Nishane Istanbul Patchuli Kozha is a patchouli perfume for those who aren’t sure quite sure patchouli perfumes are their thing. I have a confession to make: I am not a patchouli person. Oh, I like it well enough when it is blended into other perfumes, where its parched soil aroma attenuates other, richer notes. Patchouli is a blend par excellence: it brings out the richness in tobacco, make incense smokier, and chocolate and coffee more gourmand. But when that loamy, dried leaf note takes the spotlight, it tends to leave me interested but unmoved. Until I came across Nishane Pachuli Kozha, the patchouli that changed patches for me forever. Nishane Istanbul Patchuli Kohza is a unicorn: an earthy, luscious, bittersweet chocolate confection with rich dollops of honey and ylang. There’s such a thing as voluptuous patchouli. Unlike the earthy, dry leaf quality of many patchouli perfumes, Patchuli Kohza's patch is plumped up by sensual ylang-ylang and honey, which gives it a full-bodied quality one doesn't usually find in patchouli dominant fragrances. The composition veers just this side of gourmand, but a judicious pinch of black pepper keeps it from overt sweetness.
