    Visit by Azzaro
    Jako by Lagerfeld
    Calvin Klein Man
    Tumulte by Christian Lacroix (never smelled it but it's supposed to be comparable with CdG's Kyoto)
    CdG 2 Man (well...speak o' the devil)

    There are others but that's all I got right now

    The rest of the CdG range - Kyoto, Zagorsk etc.
    Encens Flamboyant - Goutal (recommend this - a bit of a sleeper)
    Bois d'Encens - Armani Prive (similar to the Goutal in my book but drier)
    Amouage Jubilation XXV (some call it an incense - it's a lot more than that)

    Messe de Minuit (spelling?) - Etro ( have read about this but not tried it).

    Messe de Minuit is unique in my experience. Visit is a nice wood/incense/spice blend. Most of the others are way too dry/woody for me. Michael for Men has a clear incense note, as do many frags, but it is not dominant.

    Heeley Cardinal, of course!

    I sampled an incense frgrance at Takashimaya on 5th Ave NYC yesterday, but the name escapes me now. I was quite similar to Avignon and Carndinal.

    It reminds me of those stones that are burnt in the fireplace of a Japanese restaurant while you sit up against the old wooden benches, mixed with the incense they burn faintly in the backdrop.

    Thought it was worth a mention even though it isn't incense dominant.

    Lagerfeld Photo is another one.

    It's a parfum, so it's quite potent. I actually wore it today but I was at home. I usually only wear it with one spray on a snowy day.

    I wish my skin chemistry could have accommodated NK Incense - quite demure on my skin and only lasted about 6 hours.

    Default Re: Some incense fragrances..??

    Norma Kamali is the ultimate. It's just a different incense (more copal) but no labdanum to me...
    So it depends on what type of incense one is looking for.
    I also love:
    Azzaro Visit
    C&S No. 88
    CdG Jaisalmer

    There's also incense in Cacharel's Neo.

    I'm sure there are others that I can't think of right now.

    The rest of the CdG series, L'Artisan Pd'E, and Heeley are either too literal or too cold and damp to my nose (as far as the treatment of the incense). I wasn't able to appreciate them as much. I always like a bit of warmth in there with spices or woods.

    Eau d'Italie's Paestum Rose is great on men or women and gets a Chandler Burr five star rating.

    Luten's Encens & Lavande is a beauty that lasts and lasts.
