Those in the UK who like incense should check this out -- it is great!
It starts with a green lime blast, then quickly develops a peppery and resinous quality. The incense is very good, with a hint of conifer and considerable herbal aspects from the lavender and marjoram. The scent is very dry and quite satisfying. The longevity is good for a natural scent (no synthetics). I recommend this highly.
Great combo of frankincense and lavender. Brings out the camphoric and resinous qualities of each. Very, very dry. Wears well. Not a complex scent, stays parked in that zone and hey, nothing wrong with that.

Thanks so much, monkeybars. I want this to be a living forum, not just a dusty ol' archive.
I upgraded my BN review to 5 stars -- the scent is that good.
Green lime and bergamot with spicy pepper. Followed by very dry lavender and a complex, aromatic frankincense, with a herbal note in the background. The dry-down is grassy and woody. The scent gives off a resinous vibe throughout. DRY! And really well done. Very satisfying.
I need a mood-uplift and this will do it. Bring the green coniferous goodness.
Mission accomplished: mood lifted. Peppery spice, resinous lavender, dusky marjoram, bright-coniferous frankincense and dark-languid myrrh. Well blended, dry, satisfying, an ideal scent for me.
