    Question Candle recommendations - incense, smoke and burned wood

    What candles, other than the obvious Comme des Garcons and Heeley candles, are similar to Cardinal, Avignon, Kyoto, Zagorsk and Patchouli 24, and contain notes of incense, smoke and burned wood?

    All these notes together? Patch 24 is quite different from the others...

    In Dyptique, there are some that have some of these aspects. Feu de bois for woods, Oliban for incense, for instance. Their christmas series also are in the region. For instance, this year they had a oud ambre, last year (but probably they're not around anymore) they had an epinette (pine wood, like Zagorsk). The John Galliano has some leather, which goes in the general direction of wood smoke-patch 24.

    For an effect similar to patch 24 (but different), I'm also thinking to Parfums de Nicolai Vetiver de Java, which pairs a bitter vetiver with smokey leather.

    + 1 Feu de Bois for the wood smoke with incense (a Mexican guest of mine once said that it reminded her of the smell of churches in Mexico!).

    Then Myrrhe, also by Diptyque, shares many nuances with Avignon.

    Feu de Bois has a heavenly aroma. Highly recommend it.
