REVIEW: Jalaine Patchouli
Notes: Tunisian patchouli, amber, three types of musk, vanilla
Pros: A patchouli for patchouli-haters. Rich, musky, and sweet with an incredible Indian sandalwood-like note echoing throughout.
Cons: The price. I nearly had a coronary when I realized how much I'd have to fork out. And honestly, I'd like a bit more raunchiness.
Bottleworthy? For the price, no way. I think I can go to the flea market and buy my own oils so I can make my own Jalaine Patchouli. BUT, take a look at that bottle!
Where can I buy it? 6ml perfume oil $150; 5ml refil perfume oil $90 Luckyscent.com
The Bottom line: A beautiful perfume oil for someone looking for a delicious vanilla, musk and amber scent with a hint of patchouli. The price is quite high, so this would make a luxurious gift for....well, for me! But I couldn't see paying the money for this. I'm really just encouraged to try and emulate it.
Rating (out of 10): Packaging 8, Scent 7, Price 3 = 6
I'm encouraged to mix my own oils and make my own scent. Any advice?
