Reviews of Incense Extrême

Insofar as I perceive anything much at all it is a very light, "thin" odour. I am reminded somewhat of the Givaudan specialty Cetonal, which is classed as in the orris spectrum, and perhaps Cantryl (Symrise) which has a thuja wood-like note. The fragrance does however improve with time, giving an attractive dry, orris-cedar-ambergris basenote.

The first surprise I got out of this scent is a walloping ambergris, which is not something I usually associate with incense-based fragrances. Therefore, it comes across as very dry and somewhat salty. If I were to describe a setting for you to associate with this, it would be the ruins of an old church overlooking the Sicilian coast. The salty air of the sea, the old, dried-out and sun-bleached wood, and wisps of incense that have been infused into the church over hundreds of years.

After a bit of time, the ambergris dies down and the incense takes more of a center stage. This is a fragrance that you could wear any time of the year, even the summer, as it is so dry -- almost desiccated -- that it manages to dodge the cloying factor that many incense-based fragrances have. This is certainly one of the lighter and more airy incense fragrances that I have tried. Sillage is relatively weak on this and it stays mostly as a skin scent. Longevity is good. I wouldn't call this incense "extreme" at all. In fact, I find it to be rather restrained, which is why it's a novel take on the incense genre. It's about as clean and light an incense as you'll find.

Personally, this is isn't something I would wear on the regular. It's extremely well-done and enjoyable, but more so as a bit of a novelty to me than something I would want to have on for long stretches of time. But that's just my opinion and your mileage may certainly vary. It's a thumbs-up from me, as this is an extremely well-crafted scent; just not my particular cup of tea.

The name says it all. Multi-layered, has great depth. Coriander & petitgrain are perfect. Exotic incense and orris wood are perfect, too. Authentic smelling ambergris with its seaside, oceanic feel.

Remains a true incense fragrance throughout it's time on my skin. Long-lasting, too!

Probably the best incense fragrance I have tried thus far. Personally not a fan of the biblical type incense. This is very refreshing. It's a fresh take on incense. Some very nicely blended iris and woods in the background. However, I'm still not an incense convert.

A really beautiful incense fragrance. Not a heavy, smoky scent - I find it light and airy. There's not much development over time but that's fine by me :)
Imagine you've sought refuge from the midday sun in an old church beside the sea. The cool stone interior, the wooden pews. Just lovely.

After a brief blast of petitgrain the incense which it is named after arrives without delay - no procrastination in this Tauer. The petitgrain blends in with the incense and adds a crisp component to it; this gives the incense an unusual twist and this later continues with the addition of a somewhat underwhelming ambergris that supplies a slightly salty component to the whole mix.

As far as the incense itself is concerned, it is a rich but actually not heavy version; and is has hints of myrrhe added at times. I get not really any significant smokiness, but later on whiffs of balsamic undertones are evident that are displaying an only minimally medicinal character on me. A warming winter incense.

Later in the base a synthetically inclined sandalwood appears and the incense gradually fades out.

The sillage is moderate, the projection all right, and I get eight hours of longevity.

This is a solidly made incense with creative touches that is not very intensive and never really a strong incense scent. On the other hand, its comparably restrained character would make it suitable for the office on colder days, which other incense fragrances often are not. Not brilliant but not without its merits. 3/5.
