    Honestly, all of them are excellent. For smokey I would suggest memoir or jub and Epic woman to add.

    Nothing is smokier than Memoir.

    But I feel Jubilation XXV is the best fragrance among those.

    All of them sounds about right.
    In my opinion Honour Man seems to be the only fragrance in Amouage line that completely revolves around the frankincense.
    It provides all of its facets embellished with other notes. This reminds me that I need to sample it more.

    Not the smokiest though. I think memoir and epic would be your best bet for that.

    All of them are great fragrances and you can't go wrong with either, but Memoir Man comes to mind when I think smokey, incense.

    Jubilation is indeed pretty good but Honor Man is very versatile, which is why it ranks higher on my wanted-list. It's not the one with the biggest wow-effect but it's ranks as one of my top-choices for business/more serious-settings. I'm not sure what recurring role Jubilation could fill in my wardrobe. Pretty much the same with Epic, the heavy handed brother of Honor Man. Memoir Man fascinated me for quite some time but I realized that I don't like the late drydown of it - the non-sandalwoody woody notes become a bit plasticy on me at some point.

    I don't perceive Honor Man as smokey or incence-dominant, btw.. When I think of those notes, I think of CdG's Incence-series.

    As long as you don't expect something really smoky You can't go wrong with any of them.

    Memoir is the smokiest and ashiest of the bunch, and is surprisingly versatile. Epic Man is also quite versatile but is more woody/incense with a heavy dose of spice (lots of nutmeg!). Jubilation XXV is excellent but, imo, overrated, and not versatile at all, unless you actually happen to be Arabic royalty, in which case it would make for good daily wear.

    I'd pick Memoir Man. JXXV has too much going on, turns syruppy at times. Not as versatile. U shd also give Epic Man a sniff.

    I Agree with SculptureOf Soul - I own all of them, if I would go for versatility Epic Man would be the winner.

    Memoir Man.
    The description on the sample box is quite dramatic (Still beautiful):
    Resonating the fragments of a memoir, this woody and leather fougere fragrance is inspired by the sombre mood of an existential journey. Both alluring and philosophical, this fragrance defies conventions and moves beyond sense and reason.
    The creator of this magnifisent scent is a beautiful lady named Karine Vinchon.

    Out of the ones listed I like Jubilation XXV most but haven't smelt Honour Man. However for me their best smokey fragrance is Interlude Man.

    If you want incense then Jub XXV. Memoir and Epic Man are also definitely worth a sniff, but not nearly as incensey as Jub XXV.

    MM is the smokiest and my second fav. I prefer JXXV the most and Epic third.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?
