All About Patchouli

When talking fragrances, the word “patchouli” has a negative connotation. People tend to associate it with hippie culture, because it was commonly worn in the 1960s and 1970s by people associated with the Hare Krishna movement. They tended to wear cheap, poorly made synthetic formulations that detracted from the pleasant natural scent of patchouli.

Patchouli is an herb that’s a part of the mint family. The herb has delicate, pink-tinted white flowers with aromatic leaves. Patchouli oil has a rich and herbaceous scent with a hint of mint and a woodsy undertone. Like a fine wine, patchouli oil gets better with age. Well aged patchouli oil has a more full scent with a fruit-like nuance.

Patchouli oil is used in a number of luxury fragrances available from The Fragrance Group. One of our favorite examples of this is the Tiziana Terenzi Gold Rose Oudh Extrait de Parfum. This fine fragrance has middle notes of patchouli, as well as rose and black pepper. It is rounded out with notes of bergamot, fir, ember, sandalwood, musk, amber, and honey. The result is an earthy, charming, and mysterious scent.

Tips for Buying Quality Fragrances Online

Counterfeit designer items are far from uncommon. In fact, eBay estimates that up to 10% of perfumes and toiletries in the market place are fake. Fake perfumes are not only a waste of money, they can be dangerous. Illegally manufactured perfumes have, on occasion, caused skin rashes. The reasoning behind this is that counterfeit products don’t have to adhere to the strict safety substantiation requirements enforced by the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act.

There are ways to avoid buying a fake perfume. Generally, if a deal on a designer fragrance looks too good to be true, it probably is. If the price of a perfume seems suspiciously cheap, don’t buy it. Frequently, when someone is selling a knock-off fragrance, they claim that they are reselling it. If this is the case, get a good look at the product photos and product description to be sure it matches that of the actual designer fragrance. Also, be sure to look up reviews of the seller.

When buying a fragrance online, it’s important that you purchase from a reputable source. The Fragrance Group, for example, is a committed team of industry professionals who are well known and have decades of experience in the U.S. retail industry.

Tiziana Terenzi Fragrances

Tiziana Terenzi is fairly new to the fragrance game, with its earliest edition entering the market in 2012. Although the brand is a newcomer, the Terenzi family has been a part of the fragrance world for decades. Cereria Terenzi was established in 1968. At that time, Cereria Terenzi was primarily known for scented candles, but eventually expanded into perfumes.

The Fragrance Group currently carries four Tiziana Terenzi fragrances from the Extrait de Parfum series. The fragrances are inspired by fire, each representing a different aspect of fire’s beauty. Gold Rose Oudh, for example, symbolizes fire in a desert camp. Its spicy and sensual notes of bergamot, ember, and sand evoke the mysterious charm of a night in the wilderness. Ecstasy by Tiziana Terenzi has base notes of ancient wood and is designed to reflect the fire of the soul. White Fire has top notes of fresh ice and oxygen and perfectly captures the essence of a fire burning on the snowy ground. XIX March is inspired by La Focarina di S. Giuseppe, a tradition in which a bonfire is built to welcome the spring. The scent is fresh and intense.
