The smell doesn't bother me but if someone is using it like cologne or a perfume that would be a little much.
As is the scent just reminds me of "Dead Parking Lot"

Not really into the oils, but I love Jenny's patchouli/clove soap.

patchouli soap is an idea i can get behind if it encourages those who use patchouli as an excuse not to bathe to start doing so

Funny Thread. Ummm iono, i never really used oils for lik cologne or anything, but id imagine a drop wud do. Ive never gone on an extended tour, jus local stuff, so ima regualar bathman. I dont really understand why someone wook or not travelin on the road could not freshen up a weee bit. Ive showered with a hose many a time, also a thorough bird bath could do the trick. =-) There are also showers sometimes as rest stops. Allll good options.

Peace N Love

P.S. Well get there fast n thn we'll take it slooow

I always enjoyed the smell of clove cigarettes in the hall because it was the only thing strong enough to block out the patchouli! No, seriously, it smells like mold.I have always felt that there is no substitute for regular bathing with soap, and I can't relate to this au-naturel ethos where body smell is considered good. Try going to Europe sometime. It makes you really glad to be an American with the daily shower standard. I think they only use it because everyone else does. What's wrong with lavender or even rose essential oil?

I love Patchouli. I've personally never used it as a substitute for bathing, i just like a little on my wrists ~ it is very strong .
Smells are a stronger stimulant to the memory part of the brain than any of the other senses & for me, the smell of patchouli is a ticket back to the summer of '79 when it all began.
I think it smells better the longer it stays on fabrics. I like it as a base for other scents as well. I wish I could remember the name of the patchouli incense that I buy, it's the best incense ever - doesn't smell like smoke, just the essential oils. It'll come to me eventually...probably right after I sign off

The 'daily shower' standard is not American. In most of Asia everyone even the poorest people bathe more than once a day. I have seen people in the slums of Kolkata going to the local 'tank' (pond) or city water hose every morning at sunrise and in the afternoon for bathing. They are also way cleaner than Americans or Europeans in their 'toilet' habits. (not going to go into details here...but it makes what we do with paper seem really gross.) Anyway this is off the subject...

I think Patchouli is okay by itself but nicest when mixed with other oils. It's nice that it smells like a Deadshow. But using this or any other excuse to spread all this racist-y hate stuff about people termed 'wookies' is really repulsive and against what the whole Dead scene was like. That 'W-word' did not exist then. But now it is a way that certain showgoers can write off other showgoers because of some way they may appear at first glance. What the hell?? I am as grossed out as anyone by those puppies and prefer to avoid people who smell bad, but to create an entire stereotype made out of these mostly arbitrary attributes? Why???? This judge-y crap does not belong at Dead shows. It makes me sad every time I read it. It didn't used to be like this. Phil said recently (paraphrasing) that magic is available to us at every moment if we are open to it. So why spread this prejudice and hate? People should not have to go into a show-experience with these kinds of negative preconceptions that we created and have propagated. I would start a topic about this alone but I don't want to give this horrid word and concept more attention.

It is great to be clean to dance, for yourself and for others around you.

I love patchuloi, I like it better on a clean body because you only need very little and it enhances your body's natural scents. It's quite the afrodisiac for my hubby and me....especially when HE wears it. humina humina humina...
