Hope you guys don’t mind, but it seems of late I’ve been on one-note kicks (see last week’s rainy-day ambers post). This week, I’m on to incense-based fragrances. There really is something so peaceful and meditative about them, don’t you think?
I’ve wandered around all weekend with a variety of scents wafting up and down my arms. Let’s see: Armani Prive Bois d’Encens (one of my faves); CdG’s Avignon; By Kilian’s Incense Oud; Memoire Liquide’s Encens; Cartier L’Heure 12 (Le Mysterieuse), YSL’s Nu, and Le Labo’s Vanille 44 (I know, lots of vanilla, but enough incense on my skin to count). I’ve tried the others in the CdG Incense series and like them but didn’t feel like getting samples of them again to try, as Avignon was floating my boat just fine.
I know I need to try Norma Kamali’s Incense, Matthew Williamson’s and others, so I’d love to hear from you about your favorites.
