    Try Azzaro Visit or Gucci PH. Easy to find and cheap, like a good woman!

    Someone already said it, but just to emphasize... Gucci Pour Homme is what you're looking for.
    Lately I've been wearing:
    Windsor, Bois de Santal, Original Santal, Elixir, Douro, Endymion, Reflection, Arcus, Marwah

    Passage d'Enfer: the incense in a church at Easter, warm.
    Messe de Minuit: the incense you could smell lingering in an empty church, cold.

    Both beautiful but different in the feeling they evoke.

    Gucci Pour Homme is more cedary/woody than incensy - I dont think it would satisfy your incense craving.

    Maybe if it was a church made from cedar logs and didnt use incense but just the all natural smell of its surroundings.

    gucci ph no... it's wood, as in plywood! nice smell but not incense.

    is that kamali one people talk about easier to get than cdg? Have never smelled it but they say it's heavy duty on the incense.

    etro and artisan are not going to be any easier to get than cdg (pay attention to what the poster is asking for, kids!)

    Try looking for some frankinesce oil from some hippie-dippie head shop/natural foods emporium to get the actual churchy note in a rich form that should make you pretty happy I would think.

    Etro's Messe de Minuit and L'Artisan's Passage d'Enfer can be easy bought here, only the Incense series from CdG is completely unavailable in the shops (as far as I know) in the Netherlands.
    Of course I have no idea if it is also easy to get for the poster.

    I find Gucci Pour Homme to be loaded with incense. Give it a try. I live in a city with churches on every corner and all of them burning something that smells suspiciously like Gucci PH.

    However, I love Heeley's Cardinal. Pure incense (like Avignon but less gothic).

    I detect incense in Tam Dao, but it is more Buddhist Temple than Catholic Church. Diptyque has a limited number of online sources here in the U.S. I'm not sure about Chile though.

    I also get a lot of incense from Gucci Envy, but only for a while (top-/mid- notes?)

    Good luck in your search.

    I have the Norma Kamali "Incense" and this one takes the cake. I layer it with her perfume annd it works very well together. This incense reminds me being inside a Roman Catholic church during high mass when they burn tons and tons of incense.

    Gucci Rush has a stong incense note in it, which always reminds me of church, whereas Gucci Pour Homme reminds me more of a sawmill.

    I've never come across a "high mass where they burn tons of incense". Could you please explain what occasion this relates to?

    Incense down here is mainly burned at funerals.

    In a regular Catholic mass, one candle is burned on each side of the altar ( right and left side ). There are three candles on each side. During a high mass, all the candles are burned during the celebration. Usually, Midnight mass @ Christmas is "High Mass", or other important dates. There are also usually more than one priest celebrating the mass during a high mass.. INcense plays a very important role during High Mass as the priest walks around the altar with the incense at least three times. The priest also walks in the church's aisle with an incense. It's a ritual.

    Here in Mexico, they burn incense every time they have communion. So, frankincense is wafting through town several times a day! I just visited the cathedral a couple of hours ago and my guest was choking on the clouds of incense smoke...but I love it!

    Did anyone mention Heeley's Cardinal? Did I already mention it? It's fantastic. I also love Avignon and I think I am going to order another bottle. I gave away my first bottle and wish that I hadn't.

    Shocked to see Gucci ph being denied it's churchy incense status. For me this brought back memories of attending catholic masses. But yeah, the wood benches of that church are also in Gucci ph

    I'd say Gucci ph is the best bet (remember, it's supposed to be an easy to find designer scent).

    Hi Marco there is nothing in my opinion that comes as close to cdg's Avignon for authentic church incense well european church incense anyway except maybe etro's messe di minuit and that's probably easier to obtain than Avignon though not by much .
    Norma kamali's incense is not easy to come by and in my opinion as i once owned and swapped it away is that it is copal with big boots on,i've said it before this one is the one to use if you want to go off into a hut somewhere and find your spirit animal well made strong as the rivalry between Newport and Cardiff but not for me and very expensive to boot.
