    Default If you were restricted to one incense fragrance...

    So, I know there was a thread about "your favorite incense," but I was wondering what one incense fragrance you would choose if you could only have one in your wardrobe? Consider versatility, scent, projection, longevity, etc.

    If we are talking about any scent that has incense as an included note then Portrait of a Lady. If we are talking incense is the focus, then Incense Oud.

    Probably Avignon by CdG or Around Midnight by Mark Buxton (both were created by Mark Buxton and smell really similar).

    I like that they're so transportive - they really smell like a church at night, with candles and incense burning. They also last pretty long and they're pretty unique smelling.

    I've got similar questions as well, and have just created a thread about this topic;

    I've had a bottle of Avignon for several years that I use on occasion, but I feel I need to be a bit "heavy handed" with it to get any longevity...and it ends up fading within a few hours to almost nothing. Montale's Full Incense seems to be a bit more "rounded" and pleasant to me, and seemingly lasts all day (which I love).

    And not directed towards you, but I fail to see M7 as an incense fragrance. As a longtime owner/user of M7, it smells of cherries and synthetic oud to me, not incense.

    If i could squeeze more longevity out of CdG's Kyoto, or Olivier Durbano's Black Tourmaline I'd probably re-purchase both. Unfortunately both faded into skin-scents after an hour or so. I love the smokiness of both.

    Actually, Avignon was created by Bertrand Duchaufour, of Timbuktu, Kyoto, and Jubilation XXV fame, but I can understand why you would have though it was Buxton!

    Hmm, I stand corrected. I could swear I've seen it marked as Mark Buxton throughout different websites. I guess I was wrong, but it smells so similar to Avignon that I couldn't see it being created by anyone else. I suppose Bertrand Duchaufour makes sense though!
