    Gucci Rush for Men is my go-to for smoky incense. But it's bone dry, not sweet at all. And discontinued, too. Still, if you like smoky incense, you should check it out. It's one of my favorite fragrances for clubbing, and other wild nights on the town.

    I had a sample from almost 2 years ago. It had The Perfumed Court label on it. They don't stock it anymore and it's nearly impossible to find now. It comes close to CDG 3 to give you an idea, maybe 60% but it's still really different. Better use of notes. Transparent, heavy white smoke with a rose/sandalwood sweetness. It's one of those atmospheric scents.

    Thanks for the recommendations. Jubilation XXV is not smokey enough. I'm looking for the smokiness of Vetiver 46/CDG 2 Man. It has to be a incense/frankincense based scent with a small hint of warm fruity sweetness.

    Another one to consider is Al Oudh. To me it is quite smoky - it literally smells like aoud smoke - but also sweetened with rose and spices. The smoke here has a velvety quality to it, unlike the more ashy smoke of Memoir Man or Serge Noire.

    I want to say Serge Lutens Fumerie Turque but I'm afraid it may be slightly too sweet for you. The sweetness on me is more of a resinous sweetness and is very satisfying mixed with the smokey elements. I think it's worth a try though.

    notes: currants, white honey, candied Turkish rose, Egyptian jasmine, smoked leather, beeswax, Balkan tobacco, Peru balsam, patchouli, tonka bean, styrax, juniper, and vanilla.

    I feel like I should suggest Nasomatto Black Afgano, because I'm wearing it right now. Very strong, smoky, slightly sweet incense with a ton of staying power.

    You could also try Serena Franco's "Incense Noir," a rather gothic and deep incense with 'just a touch of sweetness.' I love it and layer it with Wazamba (sweeter) or Encens Flamboyant. She is the "Ava" in ava-luxe.com perfumes. There are definite smoky notes in it, but still it has more than just charred wood or ashes. If you wanted something TOTALLY ashen, try Profumum's horrible "Fumidus," which is absolutely the worst of it's type. Maybe not as bad as Secretions Magnifique though.
