I like patchouli - in my hippy days I wore it as a perfume. Indeed, I carried on using it as a personal scent for many years. I liked its oily, musky, sweet scent. This does sort of have that patchouli quality, but its fairly soft, and is more herbal than oily. I've enjoyed the Sandesh incense I have tried so far, but this one has disappointed me a little - I guess I was expecting too much. In fairness this is a decent enough scent, if a little gentle, and would have a use for subtly introducing a sensual mood into a room.
