The craze for patchouli started in the ’60s along with the hippie movement, but the strong essence has been used in fragrances for centuries. Native to Asia and since cultivated in tropical regions, patchouli is derived from a bushy herb of the mint family.
Part of the patchouli problem from the Flower Power era was that hippies wore synthetic formulations of the oil, resulting in an even more pungent smell. But when concocted correctly, patchouli is an earthy, spicy, woodsy note that pairs most beautifully with violet. It also has the reputation as an aphrodisiac believed to stimulate the senses and awaken sexual energy.
