I bought Oregon Soap Patchouli soap in a bar maybe a couple of years ago and it smelled so wonderful that I kept it intact for the fragrance, instead of using it as soap. I wanted to reproduce that fragrance in MORE bars and so I recently ordered it as a brick. However, the marvelous fragrance of the bar is not evident in the brick. In fact, the brick has very little Patchouli fragrance and for the cost (and the long-term presence, given the size of the brick), it is a great disappointment. I put the bar, which I still have and which has retained its fragrance for several years, next to the brick for "smell comparison" and the difference is unmistakable. I sought out the Oregon Soap brand, having bought it on Amazon that first time, and bought it directly from Oregon Soap's website, but the rather extravagant purchase (for me) is one I regret. A large, almost zero-fragrance, brick sits as a reminder to me of a regretted, expensive purchase.
