What Is Patchouli?
So, before we place all of our focus on perfumes that contain patchouli, I think it is important we know what patchouli is. Patchouli is a plant which comes from the Lamiaceae family. This plant grows to be around 75 centimeters tall and is accompanied by small pale pink flowers. The Lamiaceae family of plants is sometimes also referred to as the Mint or Dead Nettle family. If perfumes that smell like patchouli are so popular, you may be wondering what this plant smells like. If you think of earthy and musky scents, patchouli falls under this category. In addition to it’s earthy and musky smell, patchouli also has a strong essence of sweetness to back it up. Patchouli is a very versatile plant, therefore is used in a variety of products.
How Is Patchouli Harvested?
Before you head to the store and purchase perfumes with patchouli in them, let’s take a moment to learn about how patchouli is harvested from the wild. What is used in the perfumes we purchase is the natural oil from this special plant. This oil can be found in the leaves of the patchouli plant. This plant is harvested for its leaves. When it comes time to replant patchouli, a cutting from a pre-existing plant is reused and placed back into the soil. It takes around 6 months for a patchouli plant to be ready for harvest once again.
