Hearthflame and Incense

Recommended Posts

Crackling almond wood and the deep sweet smoke of burgundy pitch, Austrian amber resin, black copal, and frankincense.

 

This is just beautiful. 

 

It starts off very green and pine-y (burgundy pitch = spruce) and then as it starts to dry down and melt into my skin, hints of smokiness come out and I start to get whiffs of woodsmoke and incense. Not sweet incense, pure and resin-y, with just a hint of smoke.  

You know how when you burn pure resin incense you smell the resin more than the smoke?  This is absolutely that, and the little bit of smoke I get fades throughout the dry down.  

It’s a very clean, cool, resinous incense, and it makes me think of a tiny church in the middle of a pine forest in the dead of winter.

Sweet smoky incense, touches of pine, wood and almond. It's mainly a woods + incense blend. Medium throw and wear length.

To me, this was the same acrid beginning as Midnight Bonfire. Unfortunately, it gives me a headache and doesn't make it worth the drydown to the nice resiny wood at the end. I really wanted to love this one but it didn't love me back.

I expected to love this one, given my penchant for smoky woods, but it doesn't quite work for me.

 

I get lots of a smoky, conifer tar-like note that reminds me of birch tar in its weight and smokiness, but is otherwise different. I loved the smoke of Midnight Bonfire and First Lash, but this smells different to me, more tar-like, and it's not connecting with me.

 

Woodsy, tarry smoke. Possibly it will settle down with more time but, right now, I'm relieved to not crave yet another bottle of tree smoke. 😂
