Here's what other people are saying about Lui...
I tried this years ago and recently purchased looking for a sort of angry macho patchouly. It is that- kind of. The start is a bit challenging- a few minutes of a kind of barnyard like animalic aspect. But in fairly short order it morphs into a musk/amber/patchouly combo that is not unpleasant at all. Sort of dignified and almost, but not quite, sweet. Lasts a long time. As I get know it, I like it more. Little wafts of the scent come up all day.

I am enjoying this so much. At first, thought I was going to have my hopes dashed. But it has stayed with me long, and morphed in interesting ways. I agree with what was said about it becoming "almost" gourmand. As it fades a bit it is "tasty" I think. But I still don't want to place it too distinctly in any one catogry--leathery? kinda. Smoky? not really. Woody? yes, but not after it parties on your skin for a while. If the notes sound good to you try it. Very well crafted.

Cowboy In A Bottle? Leather Daddy In A Bottle? This one’s barely contained by mere bottles in any case -- a gorgeously rough-edged patchouli-leather with a animalistic, slightly tarry vetiver plonk at some moments and a disarmingly pleasant hum (ambergris?) at others. (You know you’re in bold territory when sandalwood is the most femme note in the batch.) A witty and enjoyable riff on what it means to be a “masculine fragrance,” even if the name does telegraph the joke.

Apprehensive about trying new things, but this was a great buy I must say. Nice earthy tone, a notes of sandalwood. Nice, only had the bottle for 4 days now and already order another to replace it when I run out!!!!

Very much a true patchouli with good staying power. Smells very very much like Dior Imperial Patchouli.

Mazzolari Lui is truly mind-blowing. Two spritzes MAX to the mid-section is all you need to enjoy this heady, deep, hypnotizing italian brew. Pure masculine power and erotisism in a bottle

When lightly applied this really shines as a dark, smoldering Patchouli based scent. The Patchouli takes twists and turns and finally gives way to a wonderful Ambergris base. Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful - though apply it lightly or you won't like it.

For some reason when I put it on, my skin turned it into a Patchouli dump - "Eau d'Headshop" - and was rather strong as well. Unfortunately the Patchouli stayed strong the entire time until - finally - a reach ambery base was revealed underneath a thick blanket of Patchouli. I cannot wear this since on my skin it really is about one note - Patchouli - to the exclusion of all else until 12 hours later. I wanted to like this, but I suppose on my skin it doesn't play well. I love Patchouli - just can't justify liking something that could be approximated on my skin with a dab of Patchouli essential oil.

Agree with Joe F's comments, apart form AG- Sables. They both are miles apart on my skin. I've worn this a few times now and it puts most men's fragrances in the shade. I'm going to buy another when i'm half way through this one, to make sure I don't run out!

Oh, sorry, forgot one thing; the only problem with this, if it is a problem at all, IMHO, is that when Lui dries down, it is not unlike Sables by Annick Goutal. They don't start out alike, but in the dry down there's quite a bit of similarity. If you have that, you might not want this. But if not, Lui would be a great choice.

Lui is a magnificent strong (at first) fragrance that might seem to be initially overpowering, but it mellows into something like a gourmande fragrance of almost indescribable beauty. I say "almost" because no one category would do this fragrance justice. The first thing I noticed was an unusaul note of something that reminded me of the kind of machine oil that you might experience in a somewhat dirty workshop-- rags and all; or maybe a painters studio. It morphs into a beautiful, rich, scent that works best in a casual context, or an evening formal context that is less than entirely conventional. It is anti-establishment; it is not what you expect; and could have been the fragrance of Picasso.

Way too many new fragrances are samey, dull and unremarkable. Glad I found this. Deep, powerful but refined. Great evening scent. Get a sample, you'll realise it's worth the price-tag. I've always loved patchouli but it goes sweet on me. This time it didn't. As Borat would say..... Nice, I like!!

Lui is one scent that has elicited more positive comments than any other in my wardrobe. As has been stated, it lasts for hours, and the drydown is just so very nice. I can't think of any other scent that compares. Wonderfully masculine, yet comforting and should be be in every man's repetoire of fragrances.

A powerful, heady scent that lingers on the skin for hours. A little definitely goes a long way!
