Patchoulight by Hermetica, Patchoulight is a 2018 unisex chypre floral fragrance with a decadent center that combines patchouli, iris and sandalwood.
The result is a heart filled with smoky, woody, starchy, milky and earthy tones. But its rich sensual experience doesn’t end here. These notes are complemented by redberry essence that’s tart and sweet in equal doses. Rose brings in fragrant powdery tones, while citronellol adds waxy and rose-like facets. Violet’s airy and woody aroma pairs well with Ambrox’s sweet, ambery and lightly resinous tones.
Founded in 2018, Hermetica is the creation of perfumers John and Clara Molloy. The Irish and French husband-wife team shared a vision of producing clean, natural and hydrating scents with a scientific approach by using fragrance molecules and botanicals. Its 19 fragrances also feature paraben- and cruelty-free formulas. Standouts include Greenlion, Darkoud, Sandalsun and its base fragrance, Source1. French perfumer Philippe Paparella-Paris has designed several of the brand’s scents.
