I wish I had read the reviews before I purchased this. I've been working with patchouli for a while, but this was the first time I've purchased it from Brambleberry. This just doesn't smell like patchouli at all to me, and it sounds like I'm not alone. It has a wood smell, like cedar sort of, that's just not what I'm looking for. This is the only thing I've purchased from Brambleberry that I've been disappointed with, so those are pretty good odds, but patchouli scented soap is in demand from my customers so I'll be purchasing my patchouli elsewhere from now on.
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Melinda! I'm sorry you were disappointed in this fragrance. We love the Patchouli Fragrance Oil and find it to be as true to the essential oil as possible! If you're looking for a true patchouli you may want to try the Patchouli Essential Oil. For a patchouli blend you may like Ginger Patchouli Fragrance Oil or Flower Child Fragrance Oil.
First let ke say that everything i have ever gotten from you all has not disappointed me, until now.
I just received my patchouli Fragrance oil.
I am really bumbed. I want to send it back.
I can't put this in my soap. It won't smell. I havent used it as I just got it....what can I do?
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Fallon! I'm sorry you were disappointed in this fragrance. We love the true scent of our Patchouli Fragrance Oil and find it to hold up well in cold process soap when used at the slightly higher usage rate of 0.9 oz per pound of soap. I would give it a try! Many people are also just not a fan of a straight Patchouli scent. You may like it better blended with Grapefruit Lily Fragrance Oil, Vanilla Bean Fragrance Oil, or Basmati Rice Fragrance Oil.
I am not a huge patchouli fan-but I mix this with a honey fragrance oil and love it. It is my favorite bar scent right now! I personally do not care for the smokey patchouli f/o.
this patchouli smells like watered down black coffee. Horrible!
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Ana! I'm sorry you found this scent to smell like horrible watered down coffee. We love our Patchouli Fragrance Oil and find it to be as true to the essential oil as possible! If you're looking for a true patchouli you may want to try the Patchouli Essential Oil. For a patchouli blend you may just love our Ginger Patchouli Fragrance Oil or Flower Child Fragrance Oil.
I too don't Iike leaving bad reviews but this FO is horrible!
Waste of money., no where near does it smell like Patchouli,at times we d get a little whiff of Patchouli waaaay out there a glimpse and then the smokey burnt blah scent gets in your face.
I never tried the old version as I use EO s for my products., but this was for a workshop I was teaching EO vs FO. It was a good teaching tool but that's it.
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi there! I'm sorry you didn't like this fragrance and didn't find it to smell of patchouli. We love the alluring, musky smell of our Patchouli Fragrance Oil.
