What ingredients are used to give fragrances a smoky note?
Just my thought exactly. Non of the frankincense materials I have or have tested smelled smokey (including the actual gum). But then again I have seen frankincense materials in online shops that were described as having smokey aspects (I think the resinoid from IFF belonged to them?). So maybe there are varieties that show facets of smoke. But I never had them under my nose so far.Incense gum is more resinous, citric, piney and dusty than smoky - at least until it's burnt. Does it give a smoky odour profile on its own? I'm not sure.
Sounds nice. Do you know of any fragrances which use it to a noticeable degree? (Designer preferably)
