    I like Avignon and Kyoto, but I feel that they are pretty straightforward incense scents. For me, my favorite would be Idole.

    I'm not a big fan of incense, if it's strong and dominant there's a very high chance I won't like it.

    My favorite one would be: Body Kouros.

    Looking at the different answers, and very (extremely) different frags recommended, I will try to explain my point of view regarding INCENSE.
    I believe there is a semantic problem when we speak about incense, as we understand incense in two different ways:

    a: Incensy frags thar remind us of the oriental incense sticks burning, which has an array of different smells or feelings (from Nag Champa, to Sandalwood and patchouli sticks including traditional oriental resins such as myrrh)...these I call "generic incense" as the are evocative of these big category of various smells. I believe many frags replicate this effect: Kouros, Habit Rouge (vintage), Body Kouros, M7, Egoiste. This is very subjective and as wide as the different available incense sticks.

    b: Frags containing a dominant (or at least very noticeable) note of frankincnese, the Boswellia sacra (or serrata o carterii) resin. This are most known as church or meditative incenses and when used solely are very austere and sometimes lemony-smoky. In this category there are also lots of good examples (specially in niche perfumery), but my personal favourite are:
    Etro´s Messe de Minuit
    Cdg Avignon, Zagorsk and Jaisalmer
    Olivier Durbano´s Black Tourmaline and Rock Crystal
    Miller et Bertaux #2 Spiritus / Land
    L´Artisan Parfumeur Passage d´Enfer
    Annick Goutal Encens Flamboyant
    Heely Cardinal.

    cheers

    Another vote for L'ADDM

    For an unusual use of an incense note, Diptyque's sadly discontinued L'Eau Trois, deserves mention. This had a great medicinal opening that featured myrrh. Pity that, like most Diptyque's, L'ET disappeared on me very quickly. I didn't buy a bottle then it went off the market.

    I can certainly see all the love for avignon. I love it too but always thought kyoto was more wearable and natural smelling. Avignon is hard core incense at it's best. Smells like its straight from a temple or monastery. I forgot to include another high quality incense, Encens et Lavende.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads
