    East meets West, before the oud craze

    This is as much about minty lavender as the headline notes, which makes it fresher than you might expect; quite clean and a little soapy. It's relatively light and dry for an oriental, making it wearable in warm weather. It stays close to skin but longevity is good. An ideal office-safe slightly exotic choice.

    The C&S bottles have unusual sprayers, giving a short, sharp burst, of low volume. 8 sprays last 8 hours. A total pleasure from start to finish and, unlike many a niche incense, a very easy wear.

    Pros: Versatile
    Cons: May not meet outlandish expectations based on the name and box imagery"

    There is an unfussy style of singing often adopted by singers with plain voices that is referred to as 'artless'. It allows the audience to overlook their rather limited gift and concentrate on the song itself. Doesn't always work.
    C&S seem to adopt this approach to this pretty unadorned frankincense and myrrh (well, it *did* say that on the tin, I will concede) combo. There's citrus and herbs to keep it light and counter the warmth of the two main players, and there's cedar which gives a medicine chest vibe, but all in all this is too close to essential oil territory for me to take seriously as perfume. Others may enjoy its naturalness.

    I was quite unprepared for the menthol/detergent attack to my senses on the opening, I have not smelled anything like this before in a cologne. I can see what they were trying to do as I have smelled real Frankincense & Myrrh incense resin before. And I can smell a little of that in this though done much lighter.

    Unless you re tune your olfactory senses and have a base line for what the real stuff smells like this will come across like a sweet smelling cleaning detergent. I luckily can get past that association to get the Frankincense And Myrrh experience with this scent. But only just.

    A bit dull citrus and woods scent with a background of incense. The opening is a short-lived citrus that is not overpowering or strong. The incense notes and woods take over, but again are oh so subtle. Overall, just a basic citrus/woods/incense fragrance that is both weak and has poor longevity. Much better stuff out there.

    The first time I saw Frankincense and Myrrh laying on a perfume shop shelf I expected a dark, bold and meditative composition a-là Avignon, but then I tested it...

    The main ingredients mentioned in the fragrance name are concocted to a classic musky/citrus cologne with a result that while is not particularly outstanding is still pretty enjoyable and pleasant. If you're looking for your first frankincense/myrrh composition there're many better options out there, but considering this was originally rleased in 1984 and it's still one of the few citrus-frankincense-myrrh combo on the market, it definitely deserves a good rating. Very Nice.

    An enjoyable, disarmingly simple cologne that combines frankincense and myrrh with citrus notes (lemon, orange) and additional woods (cedar, and supposedly sandalwood). The myrrh is most prominent, and in combination with the lemon assumes a vetiver-like character that is not too far away from Guerlain's classic Vetiver. The drydown is one of lavender and liquorice and leaves one in no doubt that, despite the liturgical associations of the name, this is an aromatic fougère, plain and simple.
