Church incense. Yup. That's what you get. Good throw and wear length.

Nothing too unexpected here. It's the lab's frank note plus the airy, floral ozone from Becoming Thunder, et al. They combine into something commercial/generic like dryer sheets. Fresh linen maybe. The drydown is all frank.

This is the perfect scent to try after testing Non-Compliant. After you've been deemed NC, it is time to confess and get CLEAN.

 

The Catholic features clean ozone over some frankincense. I generally prefer my resins to be sweetened by something, and thus, am not typically drawn toward church-y scents, but this is nice. I agree with supreme_c0rt's description of this ozone, which does kind of have like a fresh linen aspect to it after it has been on the skin for a while. As the ozone softens, the frankincense gains strength, but doesn't overtake the ozone on me: it ends up being a pretty evenly balanced mixture of both.

 

I don't need a bottle of this, but I like it more than I thought I would. I think I'd wear this when I am wanting a different sort of clean scent, or perhaps before bedtime.

The Catholic is straight Nag Champa incense on me, which I personally love.  I'm all about the fragrance of Nag Champa, but I can't burn it because I get all snotty and sneezy when I do, so I'm happy to find a perfect replication of the scent in perfume form. 

 

I'll probably invest in a bottle and experiment with layering some different notes so that I'm not wafting pothead vibes when in the company of the general public (still frowned upon in my geopolitical region, 🖕🖕🖕 Kansas!). Cuz, yeah...I totally feel like a walking headshop today. 

 

ETA: I just tested my lab-fresh bottle, and I can definitely smell the ozone, whereas I didn't really get that note from the Ajevie decant I initially tested.  It seems that the ozone dissipates with a little aging.
