This fragrance is deep, mysterious and addictive. Personally, I think that's true even if you're not a patchouli fan. I say that because I wasn't a fan before I sampled this fragrance. However, if you are a patchouli lover, you will really enjoy this fragrance. To add to the mysterious feel, the color design is prismatic. It's as if you're seeing a rainbow on the darkest of nights. This is also an activated charcoal soap. I can't make any claims about activated charcoal, but I invite you to do a search for its benefits online.
