    Help me smell like a church.

    I notice with a lot of incense focused fragrances, especially when traditional liturgical notes like frankincense, myrrh, and benzoin are involved, tend to be compared to whether or not they just smell like a Catholic church or if they've risen above such comparisons. While I can completely...

    Thoughts as of 2022 on the mysterious chemistry of Frankincense

    Frankincense is one of the oldest smells of mankind. Yet despite that, the source of the actual smell of frankincense is still poorly understood. Over the years, I have been gathering research , coming up with theories, continually trying to better hone my understanding of where this smell...

    Decadent Frankincense

    Sometimes you stumble upon a "grail" fragrance without meaning to, and so it is with me and Zegna Passion - a booze-soaked, saffron-infused frankincense that is the definition of cozy decadence. The tragedy is that it's discontinued and prices are fairly high. What sort of opulent...

    What does Frankincense smell like?

    Asking "What does Frankincense smell like?" might seem strange to ask from someone who has burned tons of frankincense. Formerly all I could say was "Frankincense smells like frankincense" which describes absolutely nothing to someone who has never experienced the aroma. After pondering on the...

    A 'Small' Success with Rose and Frankincense

    Hi Group - After a disasterous start, I made a simple blend of oils and tinctures that was actually nice smelling! I have just started in DIY for scent, and made the mistake of putting too many things together in my first try. This time I kept it simple: 1 part Rose Absolute 2 parts...

    Looking for something spicey, woodsey, peppery

    Hi! It seems like I'm somewhat of an oddball when it comes to male fragrances. Whenever I shop for a new cologne, it seems that everything on the market these days is sweet and citrus smelling, or reeks of vanilla. Personally I like things that are earthy, spicey, woodsy, musky. My favorite...
