I am beyond thrilled to have finally found this. For longer than I care to remember I've been madly in love with Bois d'Encens but the price tag makes my eyes water. I've been receiving notifications about that frag from eBay for actual years and even there the price seldom falls below $150 for a half empty bottle.. but here, finally, I have found a fragrance that scratches the …Read more

Lovely!!!!!! For me, this hits the perfect mark for a natural non aquatic non grassy green smell mixed with a less dense spicy incense. For me, the chamomile, offering its soothing nonabrasive floral softness, fresh natural lavender (nothing powdery here) and cinnamon predominate with a very clean pine note as well that is not too aftershavey or too much like a car air freshner. More fresh and …Read more

LOVE it! My signature perfume and get compliments all the time. I like the others in the series, but this is by far my fave. Would love to see it in a body lotion and candle as well.

I'm a Greek Orthodox and though not a Church goer at all I can tell this fragrance doesn't smell like a church. It's clean, crispy inscence as in aromatherapy and not resinous church inscense plus beeswax candles as in church smell. I was looking for a dark and solemn fragrance to touch my inner Goth but this is definitely not the one. Plus there's no staying power on me. I …Read more

Avignon is my favorite by far of my four CdG Incenses (Series #3) -- and I own 4 of the 5 in this series: 1. Avignon (delicious & mild, slightly sweet), 2. Zagorsk (deep foresty, piney & wood-smokey), 3. Ouarzazate (more warmly woody than incense-y IMHO), Kyoto (*very* cedary). I never bought Jaisalmer (dry & sort of herby-woody IIRC). I like them all -- in the order listed …Read more

As per olfactory obsessed.com, notes are: chamomile, cistus oil, else I, incense, vanilla, patchouli, pal islander, ambrette.

Famously worn by morrissey, the lyricist of the Smiths.

Avignon came across my radar when I read about it in Chandler Burrs book re the making of Sarah Jessica Parker's fragrance Lovely.

It is wonderful, citrus, smokey, resinous wood …

The go-to scent for when I drink red wine in the dark while Sisters of Mercy plays in the background. Amazing. One lippie off because I can't get it from any domestic retailer, online or brick-and-mortar, and luckyscent's shipping fee is forty freaking dollars.

There is a god and his name is Bertrand Duchaufour.

Avignon is just that incredible. I have been looking everywhere, so long, for my holy grail, and it turns out this is the one. (There is ONLY one.)

It's liquid Mass but WAY less expensive than going to church, and the guilt from spending so much money on a fragrance is absolved with just a few Hail Marys! …

Avignon strikes me as predominantly piney-resinous with an ethereal whisper of camomile. It captures some of that stone/earth chilliness that Messe de Minuit is so famous for but without being so relentlessly dank and mouldy. The pine aspect is quite dominate to my nose and brings to mind the dark green branches of evergreens swaying in a cool mountain breeze. The church insence accords give it …Read more
