    Incense shouldn't smell like sandy tobacco.

    After sampling this, I bought myself a bottle. This stuff is absolutely what I've been looking for. Strong frankincense and the orange blossom complements nicely. Very smoky and woody as mentioned in other reviews. Lasts forever (at least on me), particularly if sprayed on clothing. Yes, it's expensive but it should last a while. I'm not sure this will be a warm weather fragrance as it's quite powerful but for fall/winter wear, it's the best. Smells fantastic- a very enthusiastic thumbs up

    Olibanum by Profumum - Upon application, one is treated to a medicinally resinous myrrh, at once cooling and green, but sharply sour, with a slightly moist, mushroom-like mustiness. And, a somewhat dark, orange blossom infuses its sweet fruity, earthy and indolic aspects. This dank, green melange meanders to the middle, where a pure olibanum, reminiscent of an infusing frankincense during the celebration of a High Mass, envelops the bitter greenness with its alluring splendor. A faint, rustic tabacco undercurrent, like a freshly-opened pack of cigarettes, drifts in and out. Transitioning to the comforting base, a smooth and creamy sandalwood lifts the frankincense, while a slightly terpene, conifer nuance presents. A sublime drydown ensues. An exalted scent to be sure, this masculine composition is an all-season fragrance, with average projection and good longevity.

    I agree with the reviewers that this is a unisex comfort frankincense scent that rides close to the skin. Perhaps SirSlarty put it best when he described it as 'heady' and 'a fragrance for an introvert'.

    Well, you might wear it while praying or going to Mass in a Catholic or Eastern Orthodox Church.
    You might also get away with it at a High Anglican service, though it would have been a dicey thing during the reign of James the First.
    (Forget Cromwell, you'd have been burnt at the stake)

    I was prepared not to like this, since I'm a sucker, or a snob (or both) for pure Frankincense E.O. of which there are still many good ones at a reasonable price, even if doomsayers predict that frankincense will soon become as endangered and as outrageously expensive as Mysore Sandalwood, but while the opening is not as as sharp as an E.O., This smooth blend is really magnificent.

    Honestly, if I keep wearing this I might have to renounce all allegiance to the forces of evil--or at least to 'dramatic " scents.

    I do wish the longevity would be longer, though.

    I am a guy but I think a woman could wear this as well. It opens strong sharp and green .
    Like the leaf of the orange plant rather than the fruit. Then it dries down to a sophisticated woody incense. but on the way there, the refined smokiness and the opening citrus notes actually seem to trade places several times . longevity seems to be good. I'm a fragrance rookie but in my opinion this is a masterpiece.

    This is a real alternative to seminal scents like Avignon or Incense Extreme. Olibanum is great if you like smoky incense based fragrances but it's quite different form the well known antagonist scents of the same family. Together with the usual liturgic vibe Profumum introduced a sealing wax effect that make Olibanum irresistible. While the opening is still quite severe and chilling, the drydown turns dry-and-warm, meditative and comfortable. A terrific woody-green option. Highly recommended!
