The Raising of Lazarus
Rembrandt 1630-32
29th October, 2016

An bold and classic incense fragrance that is extremely rich yet classy and elegant invokes feelings of religious mysticism.smoky,bitter-sweet, warm and dry dark and interesting.the incense note is rounded by elemi,myrrh,labdanum resisns and oilbanum.peppery elemi is for lightly citrusy top notes,patchouli for the earthy woodiness,cedar for the dry,labdanum and myrrh to stretch out its warmer,balsamic wafts into soft vanilla.in this perfume incense is king and other notes are definitely subservient.it falls into the European, catholic/ greek orthodox category scent.a gorgeous masterpiece for a mysterious character in cold evenings.


Sillage?Nice.

Longevity?About 6 hours on my skin.

This is clean pure Frankincense. I own Frankincense essential oil and this is identical. A Wonderful fragrance which does smell of old churches and incense. So far this is linear and with only fair projection/silage.

Future Jason:

Neutral may be a gift. This starts with some of the more boring patchouli elements of the more boring versions of patchouli that you've smelled.

Then, quite frankly, it almost disappears. So... it's Etro, without the projection. Don't know if that's good or bad.

Nevermind. You just reread your review of Etro Patchouly. It's bad.

It has potential. Perhaps as something layered with something else? But maybe you're just remembering that the last dozen of your reviews have been neutral, and maybe you're trying to convince the Basenotes world that you're not a total hater. Just remember that you're too lazy to really care about that too long.

Kyoto is so much better. But don't tell anyone else. You can keep it secret and be "the cool one" who smells "good."

The patina on the frankincense burner, the unwashed vestment.

A concept fragrance, it transports you, I'm speaking to an other me, I feel very superstitious all of the sudden.

I had entered a cathedral within my home town whilst wearing this, the experience was simply...special. I had captured everything, every sense possible.

Camomile is a definite note, I do detect cedar and oak moss, frankincense is without a doubt the top note.

Conviction, you better believe it!

I had to chuckle about 20 minutes into the drydown of Avignon, because it smells exactly like the dry cracked church pews of my youth, permeated with decades of incense and the smell of old prayerbooks and hymnals. I love it! And I also understand why some people would not appreciate it, in the absence of a similar personal history. It does smell musty, dusty, etc. Avignon is an experience, and the evocation of ages past - it is exactly what it purports to be, and I think it's wonderful.
