Hydrogen Bomb of Smell
by far the strongest fragrance i've ever smelt. top notes are: fire, and brimstone. more like a proof of concept than something you'd actually put on your skin.

Hugely Expensive Colossus
When I heard that Norma Kamali had only two bottles left at the eye-opening price of $1500 apiece, I considered buying one. Then I came to my senses. Would I actually wear this divine monster? Nope. I'd just periodically haul it out when, for instance, I'd lost a loved pair or earrings -- or faith in life. This incense will restore anything. It smells like the earth must have on its first day when the hand of God reached down into that clay and made the first man. I don't think anything will ever exceed the smell of Norma Kamali's incense. Can't wear it, though. It's too full of all that's mighty. Me, I'm a gal who wants to smell like the stuff of dreams made real, not the most glorious dragon.

The legend stands up to scrutiny
Finally I get to wear this legend. Long have I only read about it. It is exactly what it says on the bottle in brut force. To bury your head in a huge bowl of mixed incense, with incense burning around you but no smokiness. Pure resins with an alcoholic twist. The Myrhh announcing it's presence before handing over the ropes to the frankincense . There is labdanum here but it isn't sweet. If you sat right next to the bowls in a Thai wat, then you would be somewhere near this. This is an extremely accurate and faithful representation. It feels like incense that has been magnified. As for wearing it as a perfume however, it is only for the incense addicts. It calms after about half an hour to become bearable, but is an uncompromising incense beast before that. This is the sort of thing the Nasomatto and Slumberhouse hard-hitting fiends are after.
