    Default The ultimate incense war

    Apart from Comme de Garcon's range of incenses, which incense do you highly rate? I love Liturgie des Heures and like Montale's Fill Incense. Which do you like?

    I really like Incense Oud but unfortunately the longetivity I get from it is maybe 2-3 hours.. really disappointed because it's the only By Kilian that I've ever had longetivity problems with, and probably my second favourite in terms of smell next to Straight to Heaven.

    +2 for Montale Full Incense
    +2 for Heeley Cardinal

    Also, Tauer Incense Extreme -- not for the faint of heart!

    And L'Artisan's Timbuktu and Dzonghkha, both of which have incense playing a significant part.

    I enjoy Mark Buxton's mb03 very much.
    It's my go to when I'm craving a church themed incense fragrance.

    If you want a unique incense, Wazamba from Parfum d'Empire is a must try.
    It's another of my favorites.

    Armani Bois D'Encens. Stark. Austere. Beautiful.

    I love Wazamba, it's awesome, but the one that wins it for me is Bond no 9 Silver Factory...man do I love the stuff, I'm sure that no one will agree with me on this one but I really like it. I've been on an incense kick for about 5 months now and I'm looking for more so keep the comments coming.

    Norma Kamali Incense is a name I keep hearing. I've never come across this brand before. I suppose this is one of the joys of fragrance collecting! There's always something you haven't tried.
