I wanted to love this one, I really did. I'm a long time devotee of Timbuktu by the same house and the reviews I read of this fragrance made it sound like it would be the perfect match for me. I...

Love! I still have half of my 3.4oz bottle from a decade ago. That was my "incense period", when I bought & wore four Comme des Garcons Series #3 Incenses, Passage d'Enfer, Etro Messe di Minuit &...

Passage d'Enfer smells more like redemption than sin to me (in lieu of the darker, more ominous overtones its name suggests), but it's a lovely juxtaposition. It takes on a calming (albeit...

Leave it to Olivia Giacobetti to create a frankincense fragrance that's light and airy, so unlike the heavy incenses you commonly find. I get the cool dank stone of an ancient building; fresh water...

The frankincense and lily in Passage d'Enfer are an intriguing play on the themes of dark and light. The feel of this is dry, dry, dry - all woods and incense (dark), cooled by a breath of lily...

Notes: lily, aloe wood, frankincense, benzoin and white musk.   This fragrance opens with a grey, smoky melange comprised of frankincense and wood. The lily is not detectable per se, but is...

white lily, frankincense, aloe, white musk With such notes it was hard not to sample. One if the few of its kind without rose and woodiness and I love that. It actually makes for a more unique...

Unlike most L'Artisans, this lasts a very long time on me, and I have enjoyed every minute. It is light at first, mostly just cedar, and becomes stronger as the incense warms up; later I can smell...

Incense and soap! It is a weird combination but somehow it (almost) works. It is surprisingly light and can be definitely worn during the day, although I am not sure if it is a winter or summer...

I joined MUA to find my signature scent--a concept I've always loved, even though one hears the term "fragrance wardrobe" more often these days. I also asked my husband for input, since I really...

Lovely airy incense. I smell a bit of white soap, too. This is the fragrance I wear when I'm wrung up in knots and need to calm down. It works beautifully.

Success! A cozy soft, woodsy incense- very wearable. Stays very close to the skin; wish it had a bit more sillage and lasting power! Definitely need to carry a sample or decant with you to reapply...

It really is special fragrance- it smells of incense in a very realistic way. Maybe for some people too much realistic. It's dark, mysterious- person who caries it can't be just ordinary. In my...

This is light and almost airy in spite of incense note (which is very subtle, so doesn't add any heaviness). A cold (but not sharp), non-offensive, discreet fragrance which reminds me of light blue...

I tried this one with my L'Artisan samples recently. I did not get a lot on incense that others mention. Rather, I smelled pine in the opening notes. In fact, this scent was among my SO's favorite...
