Patchouli At Fraterworks
Patchouli is a specialty product for Fraterworks being something of an infactuation of our founder Jamie Frater. Over the years we have compared the myriad patchouli offerings within each of the key types from the major global suppliers; we have picked the very best for sale here. We trust these products so much that we use them exclusively in our bases and fragrances.
The mark of a quality patchouli is a sweetness which remains until there is no perception of the oil left. Contrary to popular belief, a fine patchouli oil should not smell dirty or wet but rather like earth freshly turned on a warm day. Patchouli leaves that are scalded and matured before distillation produce oils that are free from harsh notes and never smell muddy. One of the yardsticks we use to measure the quality of patchouli is the amount of patchouli alcohol (PA). Our range runs from 32% (dark aged) to 50% in our sublime molcular distilled product.
