    Default Sweet incense frags?

    This is one of those scent regions i've never delved into, and I know they have to exist. I feel like I've found a lot of scents in both the sweet and incense categories that I rather like, but not one that really sticks out. Maybe a mixture of both is what I never knew I wanted. Suggestions please?

    Note: I do not like M7 at ALL. I'm after something more like Dior Addict or the original womens' Prada. But for men of course.

    I think ST Dupont Signature fits the bill. It is a warm oriental with a prominent incense note. It is getting harder to find though...

    If you want a sweet incense.. try Bois D'Argent by Christian Dior.. it's basically a buttery, honey coated take on incense.... very smooth, very non offensive, and by many basenoters standards.. "brilliant"... I owned it and was not really a huge fan, but maybe it would be more to your tastes... maybe you can locate a decant or a bottle somewhere..

    hope this helps..

    CDG Insense series is great. Especially Kyoto and Avginon. Here is another vote for Passage D'Enfer. Its absolutely great.

    Body Kouros might be for you. I didn't like it, but it seems to be popular around here.

    And a top frag in every way -- totally unique!

    Worth mentioning that it is very spicy, as well as fruity/incensy. The fruit is rather different from your standard citrus in that lychee takes centre stage in the topnotes. There is also saffron.... Scenteur7 (Perfume Critic Marlen) has done a brilliant review of this somewhere, but I can't find it right now unfortunately.

    I second Gucci Envy and Avignon (although Avignon isn't really sweet... it's just straight incense).

    Body Kouros is a good contender, but I don't get much incense out of it- certainly not as much as Kouros. But it is a good scent, and I'd buy it again.

    I actually have a sample of Tea for Two that I like a lot, but I don't know if I'd pay for a whole bottle of anything at that price. I think I have an Envy sample, maybe I ought to break that, because I totally forgot about it. I sniffed Body Kouros on my wrist long ago and don't remember much about it except that I thought it was pretty darm good. I'm definitely going back to that one.

    I'm interested in that Dior...Bois D'Argent. Where can I find it? Tell me more! Thanks for everything so far!
