Ok, so it seems like everywhere we turn these days, people in the fragrance world are talking about incense. I'm relying on my friends here at basenotes to help me with something... I went through a phase of Nag Champa loving in my early/mid twenties and loved Nag Champa by Satya Sai Baba (the blue box with white lettering) and their spinoff, superhit... which is definitely a super hit... sweet and delicious. But when I smell it in fragrances I often think of black pepper and burning wood. Am I missing something or is it that I need to rethink my idea of what incense should smell like? From Armani's Bois d'Incense to Silver Factory to Avignon, the note I think might be incense reminds me of pepper... any thoughts, ideas, insights would be welcome.
