    I recently tried l'artisan parfumeur's Timbuktu and it has a wonderful incense note. I didn't get along with the dry-down though

    +1 for original Kouros. I get strong incense in the dry down.

    Michael Kors has it in the first 2 hours. One man Show has it in the drydown. (OMS's incense note is actually more like the smell of ashes in the aftermath of a raging forest fire lol, far from your Rochas Man)

    Basically incense is made from the different varieties of fragrance like rose, champa, jasmine and many others. So its really difficult to distinguish between them and if you want to know more check out Moksh Agarbatti

    I agree with both of these options.

    Would recommend CdG Blue Encens too, but weak in performance

    Try UNUM by Lavs although it doesn't project much. Sahara Noir, Kyoto, Avignon, CDG MAN 2, Jub XXV are also great, but my favorite is Bois D'Encens.

    Personally, I don't smell much real incense in Rochas Man, maybe a vague suggestion of it. As far as stolen compliments it happened once when I was wearing Ormonde Man when a friend of mine said that the woman who just passed him smelled great, only to understand 10 minutes afterwards that it is actually me that smells like this. Go figure now.

    For an older fragrance: Furyo - Jacques Bogart has a notable "nag champa" vibe to me...along with plenty of civet, spices, and other fantastic stuff.

    For a spankin new fragrance: Monsieur. - Frederic Malle is loaded with frankincense...which I guess counts as incense? They burn it in church at least.

    There are surely tons of others, but these are two that I've worn recently.
