I've gotten fantastic longevity. I've had this on for over eight hours and I'm no oversprayer by a long shot. It's close wearing at this point but I don't have to sniff around to find it, either. I'm so impressed. Expensive indeed but absolutely worth it.
You have started my new year off right! I'm definitely going to need to buy more Rose Boheme. It's the most surprising sample I've had in a very long time. I had no idea natural perfumery could be so polished and expensive-smelling. The aged patchouli is the sort that just about tricks my nose into smelling oakmoss. I can't believe the far drydown; I'd swear I've been wearing a chypre all day instead of that spicy, woody, velvety rose. Has all the glam and depth of the best 80's rose chypres but more modern and wearable. I don't want to wash it off! Yikes, now I'm terrified to try Aftelier-but you know I will!
Just wanted to let you know, I'm wearing Rose Boheme right now and it's yowza! What a gorgeous rose note. Yes, dirty but not too much for me and I have a perfume bud who is also certain to love this. Thank you!!
Well, I came here to see if I had any nice patchouli recs for you but found you already know and/or own the best of them! Beautiful collection you have. Maybe you tried L'Artisan Voleur de Roses already; if not, don't let the rose in the title keep you away. It's a great, masculine patch. And if you ever get the chance, do try Piguet's Visa. More femme but so, so great that it's worth knowing. Anyway, enjoyed our conversation very much and yes, very appreciative for a less expensive take on Coco Mad to try! Thanks again!
