    Default Shanghaijava Encens Mystic = CdG Avignon!

    Well, I just got this in the post today and I'm amazed. I paid 11.50 (about 18 or 19 dollars I think) and I can't believe what a bargain it is. The quality of this stuff is amazing.
    Just realised I should probably clarify, what I've got here is a perfume solid by a house called Crazylibellule and the Poppies. It's from their Shanghaijava range, and it's called Encens Mystic. It smells exactly like CdG Avignon minus the topnotes. It's got a really church incense type of smell, but what I'm most amazed about is the "stone" accord in the scent, just like Avignon's evocation of a cathedral. It has a beautifully done frankincense note that lasts throughout and a base of what smells like camomile, along with a faint whiff of smoke. Absolutely amazing quality, I tried it on a wrist about 5 hours ago and can still smell it. No more trawling the internet looking for Avignon for me, I've found a replacement that smells exactly like the Avignon drydown at a fraction of the price! Anyone else tried this one? Or any of the others in the range? I think most are geared towards women, but this is definitely a unisex scent.

    This scent piqued my interest, so I went looking for it. Amazon.com says:

    "top notes of clove, cedar;
    heart notes of incense, myrrh and benzoin
    base notes of musk, patchouli, vanilla"


    That sounds pretty good. Thanks for the heads up, Liam.


    Oh, amazon sells 5g of perfume solid for $16.00.

    Thumbs up Re: Shanghaijava Encens Mystic = CdG Avignon!

    Yes, I bought two of the Shanghaijava Encens Mystic solids. Very nice churchy incense with a cedar accord. There is a small similarity to Avignon but Mystic's vanilla is more prominate and Avignon has more smoke. Mystic is a very good buy!
