Houston, We Have A Problem...
Encens Epice opens with an odd synthetic smelling resin resembling a cross between sugar sweetened patchouli and rose with mild to moderate vague spice support. Moving to the early heart, the synthetic smelling resin and vague spice remain, joining with vague light woods and low quality frankincense with a faint artificial smelling tobacco undertone. During the late dry-down the composition mellows to bare boned cedar-like semi-vague woods through the finish. Projection is average and longevity well below average at 4-5 hours on skin.

Long time readers of my reviews may have noticed I have fewer "pans" than "raves" in my review history. This is because I primarily sample compositions I expect will appeal to my tastes. Well, every once in a while even with my self-imposed screening I come across duds like Encens Epice, which is a disgusting smelling composition in just about every way imaginable. The open is near unbearable as the resins smell completely artificial and cheap. I liken the accord to mixing benzoin sweetness with completely fake smelling rose and patchouli, with balsamic vinegar added in to the mix. Coupling with that hideous odd smelling mixture are supporting vague spices. I can't really pick out individual spice standouts, but honestly when things smell this bad does it really matter? The tobacco support is very faint and wholly unbelievable. Capping this dismal failure off is a very poor smelling low quality "frankincense," if you want to call it that. The only saving grace for this thing resides in the late dry-down, as the base vague cedar-like woody accord while far from remarkable does smell decent and is a marked improvement from the earlier nose torture. One last area of interest is the performance of Encens Epice is well below par. That may be a positive, however, if your desire is to scrub the composition off tout de suite as I did. The bottom line is the $115 per 100ml Encens Epice is a gargantuan embarrassing failure from its anonymous perfumer, earning it a "poor" to "very poor" 1 to 1.5 stars out of 5 and a huge avoid recommendation.
