I’m loving these little things. The price is wonderful and I really love the blends by this adorable French company. And they are portable. I love a fragrance pick me up in the middle of the day. It really brings the glamour back into my boring life. If you love incense or that forever gone but wonderful GAP Om, then you will flip out for this little stick. Crazylibellule and the Poppies Encens Mystic from the Shanghaijava collection is wonderful. It wears for hours and closely to the skin creating a very intimate fragrance. It is very woodsy and spicy with notes of cedar and cloves. Cedar smells so beautiful on the skin during winter months. I really smell the spicy cedar and all the “incense”. If you call “incense” a note then this is it. It has that benzoin warmth with patchouli and spices. It just smells like “incense”. Not smoky though. Just like the resin and the scent. This is not as sweet as Demeter Incense, this is way more spicy and cedary. I love it this time of year. No need to mix or layer with anything else. It is already mixed to perfection. It’s spicy and earthy but too refined to be too hippie-ish or head shop-ish.

The stick is waxy but that doesn’t bother me. So far I haven’t had any massive chucks of wax on my pulse points or anything. I don’t blend with my fingertips either but I guess if the waxy feeling bothered me then I would do that. This is sold at b-glowing.com. I will definitely repurchase when the time comes.
