Due to its strong impact on the sillage and tenacity of a fragrance, patchouli is a major player in natural perfumery. Our Double distilled patchouli essential oil is a true stand out for perfumes, high in patchouli camphor or patchoulol. The intensely pleasing, sweet musky, slightly spicy and herbaceous aroma of our Double Distilled Patchouli can last on a scent test strip for days, if not weeks, maintaining an alluring sweetness throughout!
To produce our unique Double Distilled patchouli, handpicked leaves are left to dry for three days and then stacked into packs to finish curing before the initial distillation process. During redistillation, a small portion of the Patchouli oil is isolated and removed. This results in a lighter colored patchouli without any aromatic heaviness or overwhelming edges.
One of the most elegant fixatives in perfumery. Patchouli's fixative quality is utilized to extend the presence of lighter citrus and floral notes in many perfume compositions. A popular ingredient in chypre and fougere in addition to woody and powdery perfumes. Patchouli blends wonderfully with other base notes like vetiver, sandalwood, labdanum, vanilla, oakmoss, cedarwood and more.
While Patchouli is employed in Aromatherapy to assist in relaxation and relieving stress, this Double Distilled patchouli oil really shines in perfumery applications.
