    Default which incense based fragrances get the most compliments from women?

    My wife hates almost every incense fragrance I have ,which makes me wonder do women like incense fragrances at all and if so which ones?

    Could it be that your wife just doesn't like incense fragrances? Which has she disliked so far?
    What sorts of fragrance does she like? - maybe someone could suggest something if there were more info. on her preferences.

    True, maybe that note or accord just doesn't agree with her. You said almost every incense fragrance. Which one of yours with incense does she like?

    There are a lot of incense fragrances that I own and LOVE. But, very few do I get compliments on. However, my wife sometimes does really like Avignon on me.

    But if you are looking for a big hit with the ladies, incense does not generally seem to be the way to go.

    Maybe you need something that combines incense and florals, or incense and spice, or all of the aforementioned. Could be that a straight-ahead frankincense type perfume is too sharp or sour for her.

    l personally adore incense fragrances, but they may simply not be to your wife's taste.

    l would recommend trying lncense Pure by Sonoma Scent Studio, lncense Extreme by Tauer, & Sahara Noir by Tom Ford.

    For a floral incense, try Amouage Ubar.

    It looks as though hednic gave you a good suggestion (at least I would guess so, don't know the frag he mentioned). And I like teardrop's mention of Ubar, I admire that one, too. I have Incense Pure by SSS, and Avignon, but at times they are too austere. I have layered Incense Pure with Rose Volupte and have been rewarded with a sublime incense rose fragrance. Maybe layering is an option for you.
