    Have tried all three and prefer Interlude over the other two.

    Epic Man for me. But Sahara Noir’s not far behind.

    Interlude
    Sahara Noir
    Epic

    ...and in that order. They’re all classic and should be sampled.

    Sahara Noir is a top 5 fragrance for me... Always enjoy wearing it, especially around Christmas.

    Depends on the criteria.
    Best for authentic incense? Sahara.
    Most versatile/easiest to wear? Epic.
    For originality/uniqueness? Interlude

    Different types of perfume, and I agree with Rum's assessment. I wear Interlude the most.

    I can try only interlude and epic. Sahara will can be a blind buy. I love incense churchy.

    You won’t regret a Sahara Noir blind buy if you love churchy incense. It’s soooo good.

    It’s the nicest incense-centric scent that I’ve ever smelled, and I’ve sampled over a dozen. I think that this and Timbuktu represent Duchaufour’s finest work.

    I didn't much care for Sahara Noir at all when I purchased it, got rid of it a few weeks later
    Something like Ambre Sultan or even Tobacco Oud is more up my alley
    You'd be better off with one of those, or Amber Absolute, if you can find it
    The incense blends in all of those is much better, IMHO anyway

    It’s funny for me to read these three grouped together because Epic Man on me isn’t much of an incense fragrance, or at least what I perceive as incense. To me it is more of a lighter, cooling, handsome scent I like to wear after getting out of the shower. Yet the other two definitely come off as incense and I would personally rank them as equals!

    You are quite right but this is not strictly the full picture.
    Epic came out in 2009 not long after which I bought a bottle. It was a nuclear/beast-mode strength scent. So much that two sprays could choke a room out. And yes it was incense-heavy along with peppers, spices, florals and other notes.
    It got reformulated post 2014 or 15 I think and that's when the scent went downhill very fast. A lot of the incense and spice-cabinet opening went. The whole scent was smoothed out following on from this and hence why I would agree with your above comments.

    Oh, that’s quite sad actually :/ I do enjoy what it is now, but would love to have experienced the “spice cabinet” incense version!
