Comme des Garcon Series 3 Incense: Jaisalmer

  1. odysseusm
    Pimento berries, cardamom, cinnamon, incense, guiac wood, ebony, amber, benzoin.

    Very dry, austere spices are a good accompaniment for the incense. The overall effect is a shimmering cool from the incense against a dry warmth. The wood tones are exotic and compelling. No sweetness here. Substantial but not heavy. A woody-incense. The amber is very restrained, and the benzoin gives intensity to the overall fragrance. I think this is quite distinctive.
    No conifers but the incense is well done.

    A very woody, dry incense scent. Delightful!
    I also have a candle in this scent and it smells marvellous. Because the candle doesn't have alcohol, it has a richer, rounder version of the scent.

    And no one need fear the cinnamon. It is not detectable as a distinct element -- it is well blended into the dry, woody-spice melange.

    I continue to enjoy both the scent and the candle. The candle has a superb "cold throw" -- meaning that it exudes a noticeable scent even when not lit. Jaisalmer is a dry, woody incense scent. The spices are of an austere, peppery kind rather than a luxurious kind. That style appeals to me. I have most of the CdG Incense line and enjoy them.

    Time to revisit this austere and peppery incense scent.

    This is a lovely, classy scent. Dry, resinous woods, smoky incense, and the earthy tang of large black peppercorns. Very satisfying to wear.
