Absolutely gorgeous frankincense fragrance. It does justice to the B. serrata essential oil, which is the variety I believe he said he used. The fragrance is sharp and woody, makes me feel like I'm in the mountains, in a vast forest of blonde woods and craggy rocks, and the sun is shining so bright it blinds me. In my mind it smells like ancient Sparta. My only "complaint" is that the name should really refer more specifically to frankincense, as "incense" as a general term makes me think of a head shop. This is not smoky at all, and there is no sweetness whatsoever. I think the orris in here helps to smooth things out, so that the frankincense isn't even more sharp than it could be. This stuff is amazing. There is nothing about it I would want to change, so it's a 10/10 for me.
