    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

    For "hardcore" smokey stuff:
    Lonestar memories (Tauer)
    Patchouli 24 (Le (Labo)
    These are however uncompromising, almost chemical fires with little orange.

    For smoother stuff, in addition to the previous suggestions, you can also try
    Timbuktu or Dzongka (Artisan Parfumeur)
    Jubilation XXV (Amouage), which is wonderful for incense, but has no smoke.

    Hermes Elixir des Merveilles. It's sort of an upside down fragrance because I get the woods and incense first, then the orange kicks in strong after about 15 minutes (citrus is usually a top note). Big orange, notable incense, and the orange lasts and lasts. Probably exactly what you're looking for!

    Another vote for Orange Star - it has both orange and incense in abudance and somehow manages to be both bright and dark.

    Messe de Minuit is an orangey incense if I recall.

    While Baume du Doge does indeed have orange and incense, it's very sweet all the way through and unfortunately not dark or smoky at all. I wish it was, because I too am looking for a 'dark orange' scent as such.

    I don't know of a good dark smoky orange incense. The closest I've found is with lemon in Memoir Man. Dark, smoky, lemony frankincense and woods.

    Another thought: it's not really all that dark or smoky, but it is an incensey orange - L'Anarchiste by Caron.

    I hope you will try Mona di Orio-Nuit Noir. It has an orange liqueur & dark leather combination I think would be perfect for your craving.

    Anne Pliska has the burnt orange you require - no incense though.

    I don't see my fave here... Narcisse Noir. It opens with african orange flower, has orange in the midphase, and dries down to a luscious sandalwood/vetiver finish. Vintage is best. Parfum only, no EDP or EDT. If you sample have a kleenex handy; you'll want to cry at how beautiful it is.

    Baykat and Kumqat:

    I'm hijacking the conversation here. Never smelled it, old or reformulated. LT give thumbs way down to the reformulated version, while exalting the old. But from your posts it seems the new is still worth smelling, if not bottle worthy. What's your opinion?

    My enthusiasm, like Baykat's, is for the original old formula. I was fortunate to find a bottle and it has an amazing incense with mild & mellow civit although it is really more about the orange blossom than orange fruit, IMO, it is still gloriously dark & moody. I have never had the most recent version. I would like to try the parfum though. I don't think I'd mess around with the EDT to start.

    Here are a few more than do have both oranges (sometimes bitter orange) and incense among other notes, most fall under the floral-oriental category:

    Lauder's Cinnabar
    Caron's Pour une Femme
    Daphne Guiness' Daphne

    others that have a dark aura mostly on the basenotes but are of some quality:

    Michael Kors' Michael Kors EDT
    Tolu by Ormonde Jayne


    this last one is a wonderfuly dark ambery orange flower and incense scent.

    cheers and have fun
