    CdG Incese Series is a must smell collection. CdG 2Man if avignon is too strong for you.
    Tumulte. The best... wait, the only good designer Incese. IT also shows how some cedar scents can emulate incense.
    Timbuktu
    PAssage d'enfer (spelling?)

    Miller et Bertaux #2 Spiritus/land is a rich, seductive and feel good scent. I have been wearing it non stop since I bought it a week ago. This is therapy in a bottle.

    I'll second the votes for CDG Incense line (Ouarzazate is my favorite), Miller & Bertaux Spiritus/Land, and C&S Frankincense and Myrrh.
    Frederic Malle -- Bois D'Orage (aka French Lover)
    Armani Prive -- Bos D'Encens
    Villoresi -- Incensi
    If you can get it from Italy, I Profumi di Firenze does a very nice Incenso

    And finally, a marvellous scent by the artisan perfumer, Ayala Moriel, "Bois D'Hiver" which has great frankincense.notes. MMMM green/dark.

    Andy Warhol Silver Factory from Bond no.9 uses Incense in a non 'churchy, gothic' kind of way.

    I like it; just wish it had better longevity on my skin.

    Tumulte IMHO -- is all cedar with really faint incense. Reminds me of Le Boise.

    I should add two Etro fragrances here. Messe de minuit, very churchy like, gothic, unique, not-for-everybody, and the delicate, airy Shaal Nur (citrus-rose-spices and incense, among other things).

    Yves Saint Laurent Nu, in the edp version, is another favorite of mine: big floral notes, pepper and metallic incense. Lasts forever.

    A lot of great recommendations above, although personally I do not smell incense in French Lover, Pomegranate Noir, Por Lui or Ambre Sultan.

    Three scents that have not yet been mentioned are:

    Rush for Men by Gucci
    Serge Noir by Serge Lutens
    Encens et Lavande by Serge Lutens

    Hmm, I get plenty of frankincense in Pomegranate Noir and French Lover. I'm with you, though, on Ambre Sultan - none whatsoever.

    Well, just to be picky but the term "amber" refers to tree resins often used as incense.

    "Amber comes from resin formed by various conifer trees. Resins contain aromatic chemicals called terpenes which make them volatile, or flammable. Burning amber or copal as incense has been done for thousands of years." from: http://www.uky.edu/AS/Geology/webdog...e/science.html

    So, technically, Ambre Sultan smells a lot like spices and....(wait for it) incense!

    In (French) perfumery incense usually means olibanum.

    And another votes for Creed's Angelique Encens, shame it's only available in 250 ml bottles It's just a bit too much
    But once you get locked into a serious perfume collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.
