Calling All Angels opens with moderately sweet honeyed cinnamon and deep clove spice-laced woody incense. As the composition moves through its middle the spice deepens with the honey slowly vacating the composition taking a good deal of the early sweetness with it as the woody incense smolders. During the late dry-down the incense recedes considerably, revealing a mild powdery just slightly sweet vanilla, tonka bean and amber base hiding beneath it. Projection is average, as is longevity at about 8 hours on skin.

Calling All Angels has been described as a heavily sweet gourmand by some, but I confess I don't see it that way. For one, while the composition does have some sweetness, it is far from super-sweet to this reviewer's nose. On the contrary, the sweetness is kept well in check, with the honey and vanilla providing just the right amount of balance to the stark woody incense. Like all the other April Aromatics releases the composition is again rather minimalist and linear lacking any top notes to speak of, though there is more going on here than the other three I have tried so far. The blending of the high quality ingredients is superbly done and transitions are handled quite well on the whole. I can definitely see this appealing to woody incense fans that want a bit of a different spin on the genre without straying too far afield. The bottom line is the $225 per 30ml bottle Calling All Angels successfully blends a touch of sweetness with a very natural smelling deep woody incense and fine spice earning a "very good" to "excellent" 3.5 to 4 stars out of 5 rating. Recommended, but other fabulous options like Incense Oud by By Kilian can be had for similar sums and many others for a lot less.

I would love to try this one very much. It sounds very intruiging and I love every single ingredient used, together it must smell divine.

Callling all Angels is just rewarded (together with Aether Arts' John Frum) best in Artisan category of The Art and Olfaction Awards 2014. 

Congratulations Tanja, I'm sure lots of rewards will follow.
