Potent and sensual, Patchouli is an essential House of Dior ingredient that took up its place at the beginning of the New Look revolution in 1947.
Full of elegance, François Demachy's composition, Patchouli Impérial, is a celebration of this legendary oriental ingredient with notes as sultry as they are sophisticated. "Patchouli is a major note, the most animal of all the plant notes. It is refined, revealing unprecedented elegance."

The precious woods note is derived from wood essences, including vetiver, cedar, patchouli and sandalwood. The perfumer combines these with synthetic substances to intensify specific facets. The precious woods note therefore varies depending on the dominant woody ingredient.
