The New Patchouli
Patchouli still has a hippie association, but it's the word, not the actual scent, that makes people think of the '60s. Patchouli is a complicated, multifaceted note -- almost a perfume in itself -- and it's one of the most important common denominators in classic French perfumery. ...Miss Dior is based around the note.

Miss Dior Perfume

In the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, almost all perfumes were florals. Like real flowers, there's a huge range, and they're prone to intermarrying with other families, which is why you'll hear about "floral greens" and "florientals."

If you like Fracas ...then try... Dior Miss Dior - The fragrance that, in 1947, launched Christian Dior as a perfume house as well. It is subtle and greenish.

(Van Gelder, Lindsy. "All in the Family." Allure Oct. 2011: 263)
