    Default Your picks for the best use of Frankincense...?

    What are your picks for the best Frankincense perfumes out there? (I imagine Amouage will get plenty of mentions here :P)

    It's a note I'm becoming more and more fascinated by atm and I think it's often a favourite note among chaps, so I just wondered what the discerning chaps of BN would recommend.

    Never got any incense in Tuscan Leather. I am jealous....

    I recommend CdG 2 Man, which just happens to be my frag of the day. It's like a creamy incense on my skin. SO nice
