    A pungent, green and balsamic incense scent, quite close to Sugi by Comme des Garçons except for the incense – which however is not that prominent in Gincense - or a less mystical and more "organic" Kyoto by the same house. It also has a quite strong insecticide feel (I guess due to a remarkable dose of citronellol) but is nice the same if you try not to think about that. The green notes are fresh and vibrant, with a load of pepper and a pungent hint of what seems juniper to me, all quite dynamic and realistic. Not the most original around, but pleasant enough, and probably good against insects too. For something similar but (far) more interesting, mature, sophisticated, go Comme des Garçons.

    5,5-6/10

    Gincense plays the game of contrasts combining in its recipe several elements hardly associable. It opens (in an utterly compelling way) with a really humid, mineral, slightly camphor veined, partially culinary, herbal/rooty (i feel a sort of rosemary/oregano/orris root/juniper berries feel) and slightly fizzy rush of aromatic herbs, splashing spices (probably ginger, artemisia, may be fennel and laurel together give out this effect) and undistinguished floral leaves. The latter project in the central phase a more herbal/rooty than properly floral effect, together with something slightly medicinal almost disinfectant in perception may be produced by the yet emerging frankincense in its interaction with spices infusion and rising marine notes. The herbal/lymphatic marine vibe is anyway really dominant in the central far less interesting phase. I start indeed to detect a salty vegetal diffused temperament which is probably the main theme of the experimental aroma as flanked by a liquid incensey "dust" which gradually fades and leaves the stage to a salty/marine (oregano "flavoured") faint woodiness (olibanum veined) anything but dense or sacramental. In this phase the aroma is slightly linear and less interesting for sure. A decent experimental marine concoction with a good duration and a medium sillage.
