    Try Molto Missoni. Although it's been discontinued it's still reasonably priced online. It's classed as female, but is actually unisex, if not leaning more in the masculine direction....

    Avignon is incense in a bottle and it's longevity is quite good, especially for a CdG scent.

    I have only smelled Avignon and Fortis. If you want a beautiful churchy incense buy the Avignon. If you want a beautiful, dark, saffrony, spicy incense then get the Fortis. Fortis is very high on my wish list.

    Incense Rose is my favorite. I know its technically classified as a ladies fragrance but it wears so well on men imo. I own it and love it.

    If you are referring to the Tauer scent, it's listed as unisex at Luckyscent and in the BN directory.
    Not sure why it's listed as a women's scent on Fragrantica.
    Either way, it works for men and women. A great incense fragrance!

    Thanks all!
    Among the recommendations, I really like Bois d’Encens and Incense Oud. But they are too pricey..
    I also liked Incense Rose and Jubilation XXV very much, so I might go for them. Anyways, Avignon should do the job as some of you recommended. Also, I like the price.
    I will try Sahara Noir when I get back from vacation!

    From your list, Avignon. You can also check Casbah by Piguet - one of the best for me. And also Encens Flamboyant by Annick Goutal. And of course, the rest of CdG line, they're all worth a try, especially Kyoto and Zagorsk!

    (where's the incense in Fortis?)

    Eau des Baux and. Cardinal are both great. I really like Endymion for a strong incense note that is not pure Catholic mass/Buddhist temple visit. Zagorsk reminds me too much of actually being in Zagorsk, which is not pleasant from an olfactory point of view.

    I would try Tauer's Incense Extreme too.
    It's a great "fresh" incense that is wearable year-round.

    Amouage, Interlude Man. If you want to explore incense scents, Amouage is a superb house to sample from, and Parfums Raffy sells 2.5ml carded samples at great prices. Highly recommended!

    If you like Avignon, you should try Cardinal by Heeley. It's very similar, but it's a bit brighter and has a more citrus at the top. I find the performance to be outstanding, and it's by far my most complimented fragrance.

    Default Re: Recommend me an INCENSE scent

    Avignon, Cardinal, Incense Extreme, Encens Famboyant and Incense Oud are probably my top 5.
