According to Patricia de Nicolaï ‘This wood is a fabulous raw material. In a chord, its role is similar to that of a viola in an orchestra – the instrument that leads all the others’. The patchouli is surrounded by an oriental background trimmed with incense and spices. But it avoids lapsing into ordinariness, with its combination of lavender and pelargonium contrasting with the dark wood.
