    Default Cloves and Incense Fragrances

    I recently purchased Musc Ravageur and was completely knocked out by it. Its stunning(IMHO). Could you recommend to me a fragrance that has both a clove accord and incense. I guess Im trying to "kick it up a notch" now that Ive found Ravageur. Thanks again for your help Rex

    Loewe7 smells to clove and incense, but also slightly floral.

    Kouros. The clove-jasmine bomb leads you to honeyed incense.

    If you don't mind to cross the aisle, black cashmere from donna karan is a great clove-incense fragrance.

    I can't recommend it, because I did not care for it personally, but Comme des Garcons eponymous frag is essentially Clove + Incense.
    Looking for Hermessence Ambre Narguile and for TFPB Moss Breches (50ml bottle), willing to pay in cashdollars. PM me!

    CDG White is a nice one if the original is too "intense".

    I don't think White is so cloveish and incensy, it seems more like spices in general with a cedar incense a la dzonghka. Plus it has also a big green rose and fruity opening.

    How bold are you when you cross the aisle? Try some older Nuit de Noel in cologne or "lotion" concentration.

    Nuit de Noel is delicious in fact. I do get a cloveish mossy incense aroma on me. It has a winter feel i think, that warms you when the weather is cold

    L'eau Dyptique is a straight up clove behemoth! Incense-y cloves and not much else...if memory serves.

    If you want a true hit of cloves then GFT Bay Rum Cologne wont go a miss.

    Incense wise, I really like CdG Hinoki and Bond no 9 Silver Factory.
    For good, anatomic reasons, scent fosters memory more readily than any other sense.

    For a strong clove fragrance, I suggest Estee Lauder's Spellbound.

    For exactly what you're asking for, something with big hits of both clove and incense, the go-to is probably Jo Malone's Pomegranate Noir. Also, most of the CDG red series incorporates both clove and incense, with Sequoia mixing them with wood (it's probably the most popular choice) and my favorite Harissa mixing them with sweet cinnamon.

    Definitely Comme des Garcons Eau de Parfum. Be careful: This stuff is very strong.

    Poivre, Caron. All Clove and some incense in the base.

    Opopanax, a fragrant resin used as incense, is one of the base notes in Spellbound.
