Reviews of Copal Azur

I adore this perfume. It's one of the best incense perfumes that I know of. Luminous, bright opening with very crisp and clean incense! Good stuff!

First is a blast of Vick's Vapo-Rub. It then soften's into a quite beautiful incense symphony. More complex than my other incense faves " Cardinal" and "Bois d'Encens". A touch of patchouli interweaves and a most remarkably true camphorous Cardamom dances center stage and then stands back to a canvas of softened Myrrh and Blue Orchid. A dryness that brushes with LADDM.
It is here where it shares a moments exploration similar to Chanel's No. 18.
The "Ozonic" for me emerges later. It strikes me as masterful in composition and very wearable.
If you listen carefully, you can recognize the same structure in Oud Shamash. Bertrand Duchaufour

Wishlist definitely!!!

It smells like a bathroom cleaner, but a really good one. This is an incense fragrance that opens with a bang — a “blue” flame kind of effect carved from a snappy combo of aldehydes that gives it a feel not too far removed from one of those “blue” CdGs. From start to finish, it’s clean — like OCD clean — which seems odd against incense, but it does work somehow. What bothers me about it, though, is the slight herbal tinge that seems sage-like — a note that I’m jut not a fan of. Even though I don’t think this is something I’d wear by choice, I am impressed by how daring the approach is. I must admit, though, that it’s a very poor performer; all the good parts are gone within 20 minutes, and what’s left an insipid shadow of what came prior. If I were to sum it up in a just few words, I’d say it smells like someone just mopped the floor of a church with some top-shelf bleach.

When I originally heard the news of Copal Azul, I immediately thought about a cold / bright incense….well, this is not. At least not completely.

It opens with a sparkling and extremely clean incense note joined by a subtle ozonic accord. In this phase it vaguely brings to mind of other similarly themed incenses such as Liquide Imaginaires Sancti, Heeley's Cardinal and, to a lesser extent, Andrea Maack Craft or even Comme Des Garcons Blue Encens. This phase doesn't last long though and the fragrance morphes pretty quickly into a competent, if not completely deja-vu, sweet ambery incense middle-phase and drydown which are both comforting and boring at the same time.

Not bad after all. It's absolutely pleasant and well done but, in my opinion, also redundant and kind of formulaic too.

Is Copal Azur the unusual incense fragrance you want to wear in summer, or a cold weather incense that works by putting you in mind of summer? Yes.

Straight off the nozzle I get aquatic and salt notes, together with a lotion+incense accord, a zingy/salty accord and a floral note that I cannot identify (and which is not listed among the official notes). To be sure, there is a calone note to start, but that passes rather quickly.

In the heart phase, the scent is dominated by a frankincense and myrrhe accord which is dry, zingy, slightly sweet and completely unique; with pop! added by a just right application of cardamom. And, I swear there is a floral note in there that I can't put my finger on.

Although classed as an Oriental (and it does have its oriental aspects), Copal Azure is office friendly without the overly viscous notes one associates with that group. Length is very good.

Copal Azure is a warm weather, almost beachy incense. Cool idea!! It could be great in summer. But even now, in cold, prematurely cold winter weather, it is snappy, rich, dry, interesting, nearly weightless--and fun.
