Etro - Patchouly
Even Aphrodite, the goddess of love, could not help but fall in love with Adonis.
After all, whoever saw him was so mesmerized and enthralled by his beauty that no further word could pass between their lips. And according to myth patchouly has the same effect.
It captures the senses, releases tension, trust and love flows through us. It is perceived by others, but also ourselves as being compelling and alluring.
Patchouly is a commitment; it is incredibly endearing and fascinating and illuminates everything around us. Whoever wears this sensual and powerful fragrance not only pleases others but also one’s self.
It emphasizes a personality that exudes irrepressible joie de vivre, the desire to be happy and make others happy, to admire one self and to be admired. Without being intimidated by the sea of emotions that this scent can evoke.
"The kindling of passion, my just be a question of a single moment. Whether it only blazes for a moment or slowly burns for a lifetime depends on the quality of the wood from which the person is made." Honoré de Balzac.
