  Patchouli Dark
Pogostemon patchouli, Conventionally farmed in Sumatra


Christi is our patchouli lover.. she smelled this sample, and said "we HAVE to offer this."   Another Patchouli? we already have two. (I am not a Patchouli fan.) But then I smelled this beauty from Sumatra. And it's deep...dark...mysterious.  Not sweet, but sultry.  yes. there's mysteries here.

We label it "Patchouli, Dark" not for the color,  as you can see it is a lovely light amber, but for the aroma.  It is the deepest base note of all of our Patchouli oils, deep and dark, aromatically.  I know the source, and we are offering it before I have the test results.  When the testing is done, the price will go up to match our Indonesian and Indian oils.  If you want to order this Sumatran oil at a lower price, act now.  Christi finds it exotic, dark, and mysterious.  An excellent Patchouli to explore. 


SHELF LIFE: Approximately 5 to 8 years after you open the bottle.  Storing in the dark, refrigerated, and decanting half full bottles into smaller, full bottles will extend shelf life. (This is the official estimate.  Experience shows that with proper storage it could be much longer.)

Batch #: SU-58749

  • 5 Dark indeed!

    Posted by Tiffany from Virginia on 06/19/2018 Verified Purchase

    I’m not usually a huge patchouli fan, but I like it enough that when I read the description of this variety, I decided I should try it out.

    I’m glad I did! Marge’s description is spot on. This patchouli is deep and would make a great addition to a man’s cologne blend!

  • 5 The patchouli to beat

    Posted by Charlie from Florida on 06/23/2018 Verified Purchase

    After using Marge’s Indian patchouli for a year or so, and sampling all the others I can safely say,"This is the one." The perfect base note for blending, or wearing it alone if you like an intense patchouli like i do. It blends great with almost everything I’ve tried. My favorite so far is how it plays with Jasmine sambac. Perhaps something about the dark and mysterious energy that surrounds the both of them.
