Hey there Romantic_Rebel.
Patchouli and Ylang-Ylang are both essential oils ... I'm allergic to most manufactured perfumes they make me headachy and nauseas.
Because essential oils are so consentrated you literally need 1 drop of each to dab on your pulse / neck / wherever you would normally dab perfume.
Patchouli is a very earthy scent and Ylang-Ylang is very sweet ... when you use both together they create the perfect balance.
For special occasions I will add a drop of Neroli (orange blossom oil) it is a gorgeous combination (but Neroli is a very expensive oil ... that's
why I only add it on special occasions).
Put them on the shopping list you won't regret it ... I've used this combination as my signaure scent for years and people actually recognize me by
that scent (when I send cards / letters etc).
