I was born in the 80’s, so this doesn’t give me the memories of Woodstock like it might for others. I’m not too familiar with the scent of Patchouli, so I can’t say how spot-on this scent is. However, I can say that it’s a soothing, warm, almost-vanilla scent. For what it’s worth, I don’t particularly like to fill my house with vanilla/dessert scents, but this isn’t cloyingly sweet like vanilla, the Amber lends more of a deep, calming earthy scent. I’d consider it to be a unisex scent. Try it!
