    Default Honeyed incense frag recs?

    I've been sampling the CdG incense series and they're lovely, but now I got a hankering for an incense that's a little honeyed-resinous-sweet. Not tooth-ache sweet, but that deep, dark honey with smoke.

    Can anyone rec me something?

    Cologne pour le Soir by Maison Francis Kurkdjian is exactly that. A honeyed, dark frankincense. So weird that I see this thread the same day I tried it.

    Amouage Jubilation XXV or Tauer L'air du desert marocain both have these traits, and I also get it from L'Artisan Mechant Loup.

    Chergui was the first scent that came to my mind. (wearing it for the third day in a row...)

    Well dark,smokey honey.. you can get that from By Kilian's Back to Black..if you want to spend the money,of course ! On me, it starts off too sweet (no tooth-aching, but,sweet enough), but then it gets really smokey- dark-nice...

    BPAL's Hand of Glory, O, or Inez. Magie Noir is also a heady oriental with honey notes.
