The niche perfume market has lots of incense themed perfumes to choose from. After a while I grew tired of these because it felt like so many of them were redundant. (At that time I had found Etro Messe de Minuit and was satisfied). I know that this genre continues to attract people because of nostalgia. Many of us have associations with “church” incense. Out of the genre of “spiritual” incense, I think April Aromatics Calling All Angels is one of the best.
If you are an incense lover, you will want to try this one. Calling All Angels opens as a singing choir of ancient resins. It’s a peppery incense with citrus-y resins. After the brightness fades, I’m left with the smoke from burning resins. It’s a softer more diffused incense resin. The dry-down is a soft yet resinous honeyed-amber incense.
I’ve tried a lot of incense-centric perfumes and I really do believe this is one of the best.
Notes listed include incense, labdanum, tonka, vanilla, benzoin, elemi, frankincense, amber, honey, precious woods, oponax, and rose otto. PERFUMER – Tanja Boching
Give Calling All Angels a try if you like incense perfumes. Or if you like perfumes like Sonoma Scent Studio Incense Pure, Comme de Garcons Incense Avignon, HEELEY Cardinal, Montale Full Incense and/or Olivier Durbano Citrine. Calling All Angels is marketed as natural but one doesn’t have to be a fan of naturals to enjoy this perfume.
Calling All Angels has average projection and above average longevity. This is outstanding for a natural perfume.
The 1 oz EDP retails for €169 at April Aromatics. A discovery set is also available for purchase. Yes, I admit that the price is off-putting. But, I can’t deny that it is a really good fragrance.
Victoria’s Final EauPINION – Authentic incense. Like I said, I’ve tried many and I think this is one of the best.
