    Default Desperately Seeking: Incense with Green Notes

    Hey everyone. I'm on a quest and hopefully you all can help me with your expertise! I'm looking for a fragrance with a focus on incense and green notes. Preferably long-lasting, with moderate sillage, and, if possible, not niche/discontinued/too hard to get.

    If you know of anything like that and care to share, I really appreciate it! Have a good one

    P.S.: If you know something that contains incense and green notes but those aren't necessarily the key players or the main focus, that's still very helpful as well!

    Smoke by Luxodor is what you are after.

    Loewe 7 and its flankers are worth a try also.

    How green do you want it to be? Reve d'Ossian is a good bright incense with a pine top note, very well done.

    A few scents come to mind:

    AdP Colonia Mirra - might not have a lot of greens but certainly comes across as green in the opening
    Diptyque L'Eau Trois - a very under-rated incense scent with a lot of the greens coming from fresh herbs
    Tom Ford Vert d'Encens - I suppose this must be the obvious choice given the name

    'Arso' by Profumum Roma, which is somewhat similar to the discontinued 'Vert d'Encens' by Tom Ford.

    Jardin sur le Nil by Hermes, second Zagorsk and Timbuktu.

    I'd say Casbah by Robert Piguet. My favorite incense blend along with EO Black and Nankun Kodo. Green, dark, deep, clean and narcotic. Playful and meditative. A masterwork and quite versatile. A bit musty in the late drydown.

    Of course, Casbah! Have to agree with the above.

    Also agree with Zagorsk as long as you appreciate a cool piney/fir accord as green.

    No mentioning of CdG Kyoto yet, so I‘ll add this to the list. Miller Harris‘ La Fumee also feels a little green to me, although the notes don‘t really hint at it.

    I don’t understand.It is so vast that surpasses all understanding.Understanding is always limited.But not understanding can have no boundaries.I feel like I'm much more complete when I don't understand.Not understanding,like I say,is a gift.Not understanding,but not as a simple-minded.The good thing is to be intelligent and not understand.It's a strange blessing, like having craziness without being crazy.It is a meek disinterest,it is a stupid sweetness.

    Many great recommendations already, also adding Van Cleef & Arpels PH and Knize Forest.

    Zagorsk.

    while not strictly incense scents maybe things like French Lover/Bois d’Orage and Hinoki (or for a similar scent with more incense Hwyl) could also hit the spot.

    Despite them being some of my all time favorite scents, personally I’d have to disagree on Kyoto and Epic Man because I don’t find them to be at all green. YMMV.

    Jardin Sur le Nil is interesting. There’s definitely a subtle incense note in the drydown, and the green is from green mango rather than the usual suspects when green notes are mentioned. The green mango note smells just like the aroma of a freshly torn leaf from a mango tree.
    1. No, never blind buy (I do, but do as I say, not as I do. I'm taking no responsibility for your fragrance gambling).
    2. Get them both. You're a Basenoter and you know you're going to end up purchasing them both eventually.
    3. Yes, it has been reformulated.
    4. Looking for a signature scent? You've come to the wrong place.
