    This sublime signature dark patchouli oil from Payan Bertrand replaces our previous offering.

    This dark patchouli is a full bodied oil with all the good and none of the bad that can be associated with patchouli oils. It has the most refined and sheer dry down we have ever experienced in an iron distilled patchouli. It is consistently good from top to bottom and for that reason it is our own go-to patchouli oil.

    Despite patchouli being an earthy material, the less dirty the dry down the higher the prestige. This dark oil has a wonderfully smooth quality that lasts. We tested dark patchouli oils from all the major suppliers in France and Indonesia and even many artisanal manufacturers to offer you the very best dark patchouli. And every year we re-test to ensure we are keeping up with the latest qualities coming from those suppliers.

    Patchouli is steam distilled using stainless steel or iron distilling units. Oil produced in a stainless steel vat is called “light” and it is the colour of pale straw. The classic iron distilled oil is dark (deep gold through orange to dark brown). The odour profile between the products is similar but the dark oil has a more complex and rich dry down.

    Origin: Aceh, Indonesia
    Part: Leaves

    Appearance: Dark straw liquid
    Longevity: Lasts > 400 hours on a smelling strip

    General Information

    Like most suppliers and makers of quality raw materials for fragrances, we do not filter many of our products. This ensures that no odiferous matter is lost prior to use but can result in the appearance of small particles or slight clouding.

    All alcoholic fragrances should be macerated for up to a month and then chilled in a moderate freezer overnight before being filtered fine. This will remove all cloudiness or detritus and is the industry norm.

    It instantly made me want to go and make a patchouli focused perfume. A little smokey, earthy, rich, dark, aromatic - everything you want in a patchouli oil. I'm using it to replace patchouli absolute currently as the one I prefer to use is very expensive. I plan on buying a second bottle to age - it doesn't need it but I'm curious to see how it will be in 5-10 years time...
