Abstract

The essential oils of patchouli and vetiver, although they differ markedly in their odour and chemical characteristics, share one very important common attribute, namely that they are among the most important naturally-occurring 'base' materials used in the perfumery industry. Although not often used as dominant sources of fragrance in their own right, they are very widely used to give a solid foundation and lasting character to a fragrance, whether it is to be used in a high-class perfume or in cheaper products such as toilet soaps, cosmetic lotions, deodorants and so forth. Both oils have distinctive odour characteristics, among which 'woody'-type notes predominate; neither has yet been, nor seems likely to be, reproduced accurately from synthetic aroma chemical formulations.
