    Re: Seeking an incense fragrance

    My favorite incense fragrance is Profvmvm Olibanum.

    Still can't bring myself to spring for a bottle tho...my 5ml decant will last me a good while as a little goes a long way.

    I recently ordered 2 bottles of Gph1 from overstock.com (listing showed brown juice)and they sent me Gucci by Gucci Pour Homme. They gave me my money back of course but yeah Gph1 is becoming harder...

    IMO, Dior Homme Sport's reformulation was a success.
