Rich | Patchouli | Rockstar
Patchouli has long had an affiliation with Rock and Roll, rebellion and freedom. Sticky Fingers takes that sentiment and modernises it with materials that weren’t available in the freewheeling sixties and revolutionary seventies.
Named after the classic Rolling Stones album, it’s based around a fractional distillation of patchouli which removes unwanted elements from the natural oil. Sticky Fingers has all the pleasurable, rich, woody aspects of patchouli without the musty, earthiness. This material is layered with some boozy tobacco and leather, as well as Francesca’s signature iris butter, which gives a depth and textural element. A touch of heliotrope brings an almond like, creamy, nuttiness, and works so well with the other ingredients. Rock and Roll chic!
If you’re familiar with Francesca’s fragrances, you will know that a little goes a long way. This one is a touch lighter than her others, so you can comfortably spray 3-5 times.
