This fragrance really surprised me. It does not smell to me like incense (despite its name). And it is not heavy (despite being a dark brown oil that stains the skin). Instead, it is warm and comfortable with a little bit of spicy feel. It does not smell like anything else I've tested, but if I had to put it in a ballpark, I might say it shares some elements with Costes and others with Egoiste. It is also one the nicest fragrances I've tested. Except I have been in shops that smell like this. I just can't remember which ones. So, in some ways, it makes me think "room fragrance." But it is so nice, I might forgive that. OTOH, at $125 for 15ml, it does not end up high on my list. Still, it was a pleasant surprise in the long string of samples I've been testing.
