As the temperature falls, the fragrance industry loves to push spicier scents. This is because they convey a warm feeling that makes you feel good. But I say, not so fast. Either summer is extending itself, fall is delaying its beginning or there’s something to this global warming thing. In this instance you need something that compliments this in-between weather. Something equal parts crisp as it is warm and fuzzy, that my friends would be Fresh’s Patchouli Pure.
I discovered this great find a few weeks ago while browsing around Union Square on a lazy Sunday afternoon. My lady and I stumbled into Fresh and all hell broke lose. (If you go by there, ask for Jacob and he’ll take good care of you) What I like about Patchouli Pure is that it possesses a vibrancy you usually find in summer scents but it warms nicely on your skin. Top notes, middle notes, and bottom notes aside, it possess a woody texture for all you “can you recommend something woody” types. However, this modern interpretation presents another masculine scent that doesn’t beat you over the head in a “mustang” kind of way. I’m just glad they bought it back after its two year hiatus. Maybe one day soon, they’ll reintroduce my all time favorite, Sandalwood Vert.
