    interlude is a good incense-pathouli combo its a bit thick though, otherwise epic man (but oud here is the main player)

    Vintage Tribute Attar had a big smoky Frankincense accord.

    Like Jack said VINTAGE Tribute...the new stuff smells like barbequed spareribs and smoke. They ruined it. $630 for 30ml - save your money

    I think the Frankincense in Memoir Man is the most singular unadorned rendition of the note after the first hour or so Wormwood, Absinthe et al fall away. It's loud and clear.

    Epic Man seems to be more about medicinal Oud, Interlude Man is a mix of spice and Opoponax etc. Opus VI is also a nice frankincense accord but Amber seems to balance, if not overtake it as the main player. Tribute seems more complex - aromatic, tobacco-ish etc. in character, it pales against Memoir Man.

    Opus IV - with the best longevity on me. A great oriental scent that is nonetheless balanced and not too sweet. My No1 Amouage.

    Wow opinions are all over the place, I will avoid their attars at all costs because they have severe batch differences from what I have read. So if its a battle between Interlude, Epic and Memoir who wins the incense battle

    If you are thinking about frankincense (ie the pure, lemony, Arabian incense), then it's Jubilation XXV, a radiant, clean, lemony incense.

    Agree with Cacio. Jubilation XXV.

    Not including the Attars, I think Memoir Man has the most clearly distinguishable incense note. Jubilation XXV is my favorite Amouage, but is not what I would consider an incense fragrance. Epic Man also has a very strong incense note, but it is more blended with the other notes (oud, pepper, etc.), which makes it something more than just an incense fragrance. Other Amouage fragrances have incense notes, but it seems to play a secondary role in those. Therefore, I would consider Memoir Man the only true incense fragrance of the non-Attar Amouage fragrances.
    Seasonal favorites:

    1. Creed - Pure White Cologne
    2. Creed - Aventus
    3. Tom Ford - Grey Vetiver
    4.
    by Kilian - Straight to Heaven
    5. Clive Christian - 1872
    6. Montale - Aoud Legacy
    7. Xerjoff - Nio
    8. Neela Vermeire - Bombay Bling
    9. The Different Company - De Bachmakov
    10. Chanel - Allure Homme Edition Blanche

    I think in their own individual way at different points Memoir man and Jubilation XXV.

    I'll add another vote for Memoir Man as having the most unadorned incense. Jubilation XXV and Interlude Man have very obvious incense, but there's a lot of other stuff going on in each of them.

    Yes, these two. I think in JXXV the frankincense is more blended into the composition, whereas in Memoir there is more separation of the two dominant notes, almost as if the frankincense is layered neatly on top of the amber. Both are great fragrances but I think JXXV is just better overall.
