Feminine Incense
I like the mix of citrus and sweet spice in this fragrance and since I'm partial to elemi, to say nothing of labdanum, this works for me. It's a fresher, more accessible incense than most I own and for me leans toward the feminine side, if with sophistication. Very pleasant and very wearable for a variety of occasions.

Smoky dullness
... and another dull, synthetic, vaguely “fizzy” incense with the usual base nuances of “pencil sharpener” cedar wood, here contrasted by spices and a sort of citrus-candied note (elemi). A bit ambery and vanillic, with a pleasant undertone of musky-soapy notes which provide a decent sort of “dusty” mood, a bit moldy too (ambroxan, I guess), enhanced by the slightly “rotten” sweetishness of some nuances of elemi. Then pepper, ginger, nutmeg. Basically, think of some (neo)classic woody-spicy scents like Cacharel pour l’Homme or Envy Men, rewritten with a prominent synthetic incense note to fit the current requirements of fashion (back then). In my opinion: uncreative, plastic, overpriced, still decently pleasant albeit in the least interesting meaning ever.

Bois d'Encens Eau Fraiche
Lately, I've found myself roused by Byredo Parfums, but Encens Chembur smells to me like a sheer, zesty impression of Armani Bois d'Encens. For all of the obvious reasons. Incense confined by citrus notes and a faint smoke of burning resins. Perhaps I'm not partial to citrus, but this line has much more to offer.

light incense, quite bright due to lemon, not a dark one. I don't get this "temple feeling" at all.
