Why do men hate patchouli oil so much?
I have the whole patchouli collection of soap and lotion and men just seem to naturally hate it. To the degree that they wrinkle their nose and comment on it, recognising it...

I love it but don´t want to offend the guys I work with.

Why is this scent so offensive to guys.

PS-I AM a real hippie heart and soul.

Overpowering any natural scent. Was used to cover the smell of weed in the old days. But, the law started cueing in on it and it began to cause "strip search city" if they even got a wiff of that smell. A lot of us "freaks" began to run like hell if we caught a wiff of it too!

It´s a bit heavy and headachy. Ever tried Ma Griffe by Carven? Light and citrusy.

Everybody´s different...genetically. Some people might detect notes of vinegar mixed in with florals, mildew and fresh earth with patchouli, others might smell ash and florals, and others might only smell a floral earthy aroma.

On a morning from a Bogart movie
In a country where they turn back time
You go strolling through the crowd like Peter Lorre
Contemplating a crime
She comes out of the sun in a silk dress running
Like a watercolour in the rain
Don´t bother asking for explanations
She´ll just tell you that she came
In the year of the cat

She doesn´t give you time for questions
As she locks up your arm in hers
And you follow ´till your sense of which direction
Completely disappears
By the blue tiled walls near the market stalls
There´s a hidden door she leads you to
These days, she says, I feel my life
Just like a river running through
The year of the cat

Well, she looks at you so cooly
And her eyes shine like the moon in the sea
She comes in incense and patchouli
So you take her, to find what´s waiting inside
The year of the cat

Well, morning comes and you´re still with her
And the bus and the tourists are gone
And you´ve thrown away the choice and lost your ticket
So you have to stay on
But the drum-beat strains of the night remain
In the rhythm of the new-born day
You know sometime you´re bound to leave her
But for now you´re going to stay
In the year of the cat

I believe that is my all-time favorite song. Thanks for the reminder. I, btw, am a man and I love patchouli. Many steamy-low, streaming-high memories of a few beautiful ladies and all the fragrances.

Depends on the variety. Some kinds do smell like dirt. Others have a nice scent. Really, it depends on the person wearing it and how well their body chemistry brings out the undertones.

What 2:47 said.

Patchouli smells different on different people depending on the chemistry. On the wrong person worn too strong or the wrong blend it can be atrocious but on the right person it can be very sexy.

I have a blend with vanilla in it and it is toned down. The vanilla really smooths and enhances the earthy tones. It smells sultry.

Re: Why do men hate patchouli oil so much?
Its a love it or hate it deal

it is about ´degree´ as its a potent fragrance

only a drop or two!!! it goes a long long way

and not in the workplace too heavy. use caution

my best friends, a married couple both love the stuff and have a complete shower line: soap, oil, lotion. They bathe together and drench in it and say it makes their boudoir smell heavenly

they say having and wearing the same smell really enhances their lovemaking. hmmmmm!

well its worth a try

trick is finding a mate that likes the same smell

I...I...I...I had...I had immense plans. I was on the threshold of great things. And what you´ve hacked here to the ground like a tree is not the end of it. No, you´ve also shaken the seeds from that tree. And I will take root in you. I will sprout. I will be nourished by your violence. Nothing. Nothing. To look into the abyss without drawing away is everything. The highest...The highest of honors. To approach the horizon of endurable anguish and to pass it, you must have eyes without eyelids, for if you blink once you will incinerate.

Agree. I usually take a swig or two of the boy´s beer before bed so we smell and taste the same.

Re: Why do men hate patchouli oil so much?
Its very earthy and grounding ..
and yes use all scents spareingly it should accent not overpower your natural scent..
As a male I like Myrrh as a base for scents its a little more uplifting ..
If your a female try something more like Rose , Lavender or Jasmine they are much more sensual..

Re: Why do men hate patchouli oil so much?
To me, patchouli is one of the most offensive odors I´ve ever smelled. I rank it with noxious dog farts and the body odor of an unbathed 300 lb behemoth.
The reason I find it so disgusting is because it´s unavoidable ... when someone is wearing it, the smell is like a tidal wave that washes over you, not to mention that it just isn´t an attractive "scent" if one could be so generous to call something that foul a scent at all. When someone wears it the first thing that comes to mind is that they are filthy and feebly using it as a mask to cover the unwashed odors of their dirty body. If I´m somewhere like an airplane and the person sitting next to me farts, I´d probably thank god that it was only a fart. At least that goes away, patchouli lingers like a dark raincloud.

Because it STINKS! Smells like mold & dirt.

It´s aggressive, too...it goes 10 feet ahead of & behind the wearer, assaulting people´s noses.

Dump the soaps and crap...

Stick to the straight essential oil...Make sure there are no additives...Less is always more with patchouli...A 2 gram bottle should last 10 years...It does not blend with every body...Those that it blends well with are usually nymphs and satyrs though... ;-)

Re: Why do men hate patchouli oil so much?
I love it also, but not all patchouli oil smells good. There used to be a shop on The Ave in Seattle that had maybe 10 different kinds, and only one smelled good to me.
It is overpowering though. I get unscented soap to melt down and scent and then pout into molds. For 4 bars of soap I usually use about 10-15 drops of patchouli and the same amount of clove or cinnamon oil. That way you only get a faint hint of patchouli, and not enough to make people choke when they´re near you.
