Reviews of parfums*PARFUMS Series 3 Incense: Zagorsk

I tried this as part of a Perfumed Court Russian sample pack. It genuinely smells like an old church in the winter time, with incense that is strangely 'cold'. I can't imagine actually wearing it, but if you're into the concept of fragrance as signifier of time and place, it has Orthodox church written all over it (It makes me want to re-watch Goldeneye).

I was positive I would love this scent before I ever smelled it-almost blind bought a bottle. Pepper with coniferous woods and light incense (and some violet). Sadly, after 20 minutes this dries down to laundry detergent. No matter how much I try to envision the forest imagery, I can't get past the laundry detergent association.

Encens Flamboyent totally outclasses Zagorsk for the winter woods and incense scent.

Exactly the same as Cacharel Pour Homme, Loewe 7 and Bang ( Marc Jacobs ) mayby a little bit " colder " but it' s the same range. Very bad available in the Netherlands, were I live. I prefer Loewe 7 the longlivety is much better.

Zagorsk is one of the more distinctive offerings in the Comme des Garcons incense line. Along with the expected spices and frankincense, Zagorsk features an intense pine sap note that smells at once bright, stark, and chilly. When I think about it, Zagorsk is the “coldest” incense fragrance I’ve experienced. Dzongkha and Avignon may share its austerity, but their smoke lends each a warmth entirely lacking in Zagorsk.

If Zagorsk’s stony, frigid incense appeals to you, then you’re in luck, since this is a staunchly linear fragrance that pumps out its heart accord steadily for hours. Zagorsk projects moderately from the skin, and doesn’t leave huge clouds of sillage behind it, both traits that make it a versatile wear for men or women. After a few wearings and some reflection, I’ve found Zagorsk distinguished offering in a crowded field, and would recommended a sample to anyone seeking a unique twist on the incense theme.

It's interesting that nobody mentioned it, but for me this is older yet calmer brother of "Tom Ford Grey Vetiver".
This one opens up very close to "Grey Vetiver" with that carrot scum smell right after taking out the juice plus soft woods and resins and some smoky incense.
It's semi fresh, semi sweet, mossy carrot scum smell that there are some woodsy notes and some smoky notes to give it a nice kick.
It's linear and as time goes by it gets smoother yet a little more smoky and resinous.
Projection is average and longevity is only 3-4 hours on my skin which isn't that great.
Very good and classy natural smell but I've smelled this before and sadly didn't last that much.

Another win among the Incense Series, although not my personal favourite. An eugenol overdose of balsamic, green, pungent and spicy notes: the freezing, pagan counterpart of the monolithic, Catholic liturgic gloominess of Avignon. Basically halfway between that and the most notable green CdG's - Sugi and Hinoki for instance. Great projection with a sillage shorter than expected.
