Harvest: All Year
Sulawesi: Current Sulawesi patchouli oil prices have gone up by 30% and are predicted to continue to show an upward trend in coming weeks. This proves that we have been very exhaustive with our product analysis, as stated in our March 2017 market report. Shifting of the predominant patchouli source from East Sulawesi to Central Sulawesi has slowed down supplies significantly. Anticipation of the new harvest will help improve the supply situation.
Sumatra: Current Sumatra patchouli oil prices are stable, as is the supply. Material from Sumatra remains a relatively superior product compared to patchouli oil from Sulawesi. The demand for the Sumatra product flourishes in the market for certain quality requirements, namely a higher patchouli alcohol content, more mature / better olfactory properties.
However, the increase in the Sulawesi patchouli price has brought it almost on a par with the Sumatra price. If the upward trend remains steady, it may generate new customers for Sumatra material.
