    with the exception of Jaisalmer which is a nice tiger-balm oriented fragrance, I find all the rest to be outstanding. My favorite is by all means Avignon.

    My favourites are Avignon and Zagorsk, the others are very good too. Kyoto always smelled like the most feminine of the series to me, Jaisalmer is the spiciest and least incense-ish, and Quarzazate was the least familiar smelling and most challenging.

    owned all of them (currently own avignon, ouarzazate & jaisalmer) but i have to go against the trend and say that kyoto is my least favourite, partly because of a slightly sweet, damp/wet rag aspect to it, but also because i already own cdg monocle hinoki and christian lacroix tumulte which are very similar and superior to kyoto.
    my favourite is avignon - catholic church, followed by zagorsk - greek orthodox church (& very austere).

    Kyoto. I bought a full bottle of Avignon but hardly ever wear it - although it's great. It's just too catholic. Kyoto is probably the best.

    I'm thinking of blind buying Avignon in the morning.

    Speaking as a lapsed Catholic I don't find Avignon all that churchified. Lots of Provencal rosemary in there. I do like it though. I have all of them except Jaisalmer. Zagorsk is my favourite.

    I recently tried Exultat by Maria Candida Gentile; now that I DO find very churchy. It is quite lovely, more subtle than Avignon. And more complicated. I recommend it to any incense fan, it is one of the best.

    Make that another +1. I posted this morning that I could layer Jaisalmer with anything. It's fairly sweet and mild.
    In a world where 6 million people are added each month, every landscape matters.

    I didn't get much out of the "uplifting" Jaisalmer and the "serious" Zagorsk. Frankly, it's the lack of longevity that disturbs me. I'm not to dismiss a fragrance quickly because it is light or so, but in case of Zagorsk I just have no time to enjoy it - it's vanished without a whimper (as a lover of all things Russian I have to say: what a pity). I should try Avignon soon, because it has a good reputation on basenotes. Dammit, I even may get my nose adjusted to the conception of this line.

    That's the spirit; listening to Rachmaninoff's All-night-vigil while being drenched in Zagorsk...

    Ausliebezumduft stock it. I also got samples of Barry Lyndon and Sideris but haven't had a chance to test those properly.
