In the bottle, no surprise, Patchouli. Once I put it on, no surprise, patchouli. As it was drying however... ugh, dirty hippie. Absolute using-patchouli-to-"mask"-body-odor. Gross. But after a little while that faded to a patchouli and vanilla scent that's quite nice. Albeit with a tinge of something that some people would call spice, some earth, some BO. It's entirely subjective of course. But in its final phase I quite like it. Was it worth what I spent (ebay), no. But I will keep it... And I will wear it... Because of what I spent on it!!
