A fantastic incense scent
Thanks to @Marieposa I was able to test Copal Azur. This fragrance is a revelation! It is - with the exception of the pure essential oil especially the Hogari incense (Boswellia sacra) from Oman - the best incense fragrance I have ever smelled. But from the beginning.

Initially, I smell especially the maritime and ozonic notes. Even then, the scent is a delight. After a few minutes, however, the incense hits full force. And what an incense! I've only ever known this scent from an attar with high quality genuine Hogari incense (alternatively Hojari), for many the best incense in the world. It doesn't smell smoky as you might think of incense, but fresh, slightly citrusy and slightly minty. Incidentally, this is how it smells and tastes when carefully smoked, if you dare to eat it as a raw material, which you can do without hesitation, at least in the case of the green Hogari. I am therefore very sure that genuine hogari incense is used here. The scent is unmistakable. Who likes rather smoky incense, I recommend to test times Boswellia papyrifera from Ethiopia or Boswellia neglecta, bestals raw material for smoking.

And this distinctive aroma remains throughout the entire, quite good shelf life of the fragrance. Later join still a little the earthy or earth oil-like notes of patchouli us myrrh to it, but in each case very discreetly. The other notes remain inconspicuous, but what makes nothing at all, because you can enjoy the almost unadulterated incense.

Copal Azur has the potential to become one of my favorite fragrances, and will also move in with me in the foreseeable future because of its amazingly affordable price.

Aedes de Venustas Copal Azur
Short Review When you open and read the notes of this perfume, the first thing you notice is the incense in all three phases of the scent. I picked up the bottle because it was immediately special to me.

It opens with notes of ozone and gives me a strong smoky note. The smell immediately took me to another dimension, a cold island in spring or fall, standing on a rocky shore while strong waves lapped the same shore.
This is not a playful scent for summer, nor is it a concatenation that has the task of evoking emotion in another person. I think of this scent as a calming cloud for the wearer.
Then mild resins come on stage with incense. Frankincense is not at all churchy and does not have that character. The further it goes towards the base, the warmer the scent is, probably because of the base containing amber, tonka and myrrh - I don't recognize these notes individually. What annoys me about it is the aura, which could be bigger.
The longevity is up to 8-10 hours. I see it in a woman the same as in a man.

Chapel Sunday scent
Spicy, mineral incense with a hint of salt air. Intense resinous. A bit too loud, but a special mixture of notes from very different spheres: Resins and aquatic were combined here. An ethereally fresh scent (salt, ozone, maritime) is mixed with oriental notes, but these remain spicy (cardamom, patch, tonka) and do not immediately conjure up the whole divan. Rather a chapel on a cliff surrounded by spicy herbs. And of course three times incense, if you want to believe the pyramid of scents, and my nose does. Nothing is sweet here, by the way, the myrrh combines freshness and sacral smoke and stands above the fragrance. And clearly and all day long. An oddity, a composition that smells new and is familiar. Not for daily, more like a chapel sunday scent.

Tropical incense
Copal Azur by Aedes De Venustas and created by Bertrand Duchaufour is a new and fascinating take on the incense genre. Bertrand Duchaufour has created many memorable incense perfumes including Aedes's own eponymous scent and the famous Avignon by Commes des Garcon.Here he creates a new genre.I'd call it "Tropical Incense" or "Oceanic Incense".

Too often these days are the launches of perfumes accompanied by marketing drivel and florid descriptions that rarely live up to the hype.Descriptions of exotic locales, rituals and rare ingredients fall flat as the reality is far different from the promised journey.Copal Azur is one of the few perfumes I've found that indeed does take you on the promised journey and what a journey it is.

Designed to recall the juxtaposition of the scared Mayan incense Copal,the lush oceanic locale of Tulum,and the verdant Mayan jungle,Copal Azur starts with a powerful blast of incense apparently constructed from 3 different extractions of Frankincense as Copal itself is not used as a perfumery ingredient.The opening is eye- wateringly strong.Behind the incense lurks a marine like ozonic note but don't worry aquatic phobes there's no Calone like note here.Because of that the incense has less of a Catholic or liturgical feel. It's more of a dry/bitter green ozonic note,almost chlorine like with a salty element.It has an airy and crisp feeling like staring into the depths of a deep blue cenote.Since cenotes usually occur at a fresh and salt water interface this makes perfect olfactory sense.Think of it as a salty fresh note,maybe Floralzone?.

After a few minutes a tropical note begins to creep in.This is the note of the Mayan jungle.It is the scent of a distant jungle rot with a spicy sweet green accent provided by the Cardamom.Bertrand Duchaufour used a similar note in his excellent Aurore Nomade for The Different Company.In Aurore Nomade the floral element was turned up and accented with rum and spices.Here it's much drier and airier.It'se the distant humid veneer of the jungle made drier by the incense and ozonic notes.At this point Copal Azur really does provide a remarkable realistic feeling of being on the beach in Tulum surrounded by a cloud of burning copal resin.As the perfume reaches it's middle stages it becomes slightly sweeter as the notes of Tonka bean and Amber make an entrance. The amber is meant to represent the fire that burns the sacred Copal. That sweetness is tempered by the patchouli and the Myrrh and the resinous smell of the Copal still swirls like a sweet smoke holding everything together.As Copal Azur dries down the notes meld seamlessly into each other into a resinous salty/fresh tropical blur.With a polite sillage and excellent longevity this is a must try for incense lovers and those that enjoy fresh tropical salty scents.It'sew and daring take on incense.I truly enjoyed the journey.Bravo Bertrand Duchaufour and Aedes De Venustas!

Not an everyday summer fragrance, with fruity, salty sea notes, and a hint of incense. Projection is moderate but it lasts all day long.
