    This series really interest me. The perfumes inspired by religious seem mysterious. I want to try it.

    As a Buddhist, I find Kyoto interests me the most. It seems serene like a scent for meditation to find inner peace.

    Avignon and Zagorsk are my favorites, although I wish Zagorsk had better longevity on me. Kyoto definitely has a meditative quality to it that I really like. It is definitely worth trying them all.

    Avignon
    is my favorite, followed by Kyoto.

    I like Jaisalmer a lot, I don't get the greatest longevity though.

    Zagorsk
    is probably my least favorite, something sour about it.


    I'm not sure if I've ever tried
    Ouarzazate.

    Kyoto. Bought it when it first appeared because I was a fan of Rei Kawabuko and I used to love temple hopping in Kyoto. I think it it a great abstract evocation of a winter late afternoon at Kyomizu.

    Avignon is probably going to go down as the 'reference incense' for this whole genre though, don't you think? Talk about starting a movement in perfumery.

    On second thoughts that is probably a dumb thing to say given that burning incense a couple of thousand years ago kicked off the idea of 'par fumes' / 'through smoke' but you know what I mean

    It's even more ironic that a decade or so after releasing the Incense series, designed to evoke temple incense, that CdG should finally release incense sticks to replicate the perfumes (quite nicely, I should add).

    I like Avignon, Kyoto and Ouarzazate. I have the latter most but will definitely get the former.
    Ouarzazate is very spicy. I think the spice amount is on par with the incense amount. Which in a way is good but also not so good because Avignon for example has more or feels like it has more incense in it.

    I went with Kyoto. Pretty accurate depiction of what the graveyards smell like here too.

    Hmm interesting that Kyoto is in front of Avignon I was under the impression that Avignon was the clear favourite.

    Personally I struggle to love these. Somehow they're just not "incensy" enough. I rather prefer Shanaan or Incense Extreme.

    I think my favourite of the CdG's is Zagorsk actually but I haven't tried Ouarzazate yet.

    After years of wearing them off and on and not realizing why it was I didn't wear them more often, I figured out that it was the massive amount of bluntly presented ISO E Super in all of the Incense Series that always ended up annoying the hell out of me after a couple of hours. I prefer them as ambient scents rather than actual fragrances, and I still love the smell of Avignon even though I rarely wear it anymore.

    And for what it's worth, the ISO E Super in the Incense Series is still done a lot better than it is in something like Encre Noire which smells good enough but grates like few others can.
