No ingredient used in perfumery is as equally loved and despised as patchouli.

Michelle Krell Kydd, a trained "nose" in fragrance and flavors and editor of the blog Glass Petal Smoke, invites you to bring your nose and an open mind to smell some patchouli varietals and vintages, as well as a curated selection of patchouli-inspired perfumes.
