    lol this thread should be titled "Avignon, the best incense cologne" as far as I'm concerned.

    For what it's worth, I feel it's necessary to mention that Around Midnight, by Mark Buxton (the creator of Avignon) smells like a perfected version of Avignon. Granted, it was after all, released after Avignon.

    Around Midnight smells like a more rounded, more wearable and more sensual version of Avignon. Whereas Avignon is stark, dry and a bit too sharp, Around Midnight pulls all the right moves, and smells mysterious, austere and yet still wearable.

    Avignon, naturally. Kyoto is also nice. All the CdG series entries are stellar. (I might be beating a dead horse around here with that comment, but it's well-deserved, no?)

    Also, Gucci PH was a good call above. Didn't think of that one. CL Tumulte is a good choice too, despite no incense. Does Envy have any incense in it or am I just thinking it did?

    Really liked Passage D'Enfer in the warmer spring/summer months. Maybe the best non-CdG choice for incense.

    Yeah, just go with anything from CdG. Start with Avignon. It's been spelled out here. Again.

    Glad to see some love for the underrated gem, Signature pour Homme by ST Dupont. Boozy, inky incense - it caught me by surprise. +3 on this.

    These days, the most direct approach is not always the most budget-friendly, but in this case it so is!

    If you're curious about how this scent will "do" on your skin, or if you totally know you love it, but are temporarily or perpetually funding-challenged, olibanum essential oil can be obtained for a very modest sum...

    Avignon by CdG , perfect incense , followed closely by Bois d'Encens which is slightly lighter and fresher . both fantastic fragrances !!

    Actually, the original Aramis may not have "incense" officially listed as a basenote, but it definitely has a smoky, inside-of-a-church flavour to it.

    Whoops I forgot to mention Andy Warhol Silver Factory by Bond no. 9. It smells like Indian temple incense with a touch of castoreum and vanilla. I don't know what the deal is with the name.... it smells nothing like anything I would ever associate with Andy Warhol.
