How? I Apply the Fragrance

3 to 5 sprays

When to wear: anytime as long as your into incense. Incense for me is usually evenings reading or something like that Anubis Notes Suede, jasmine, pink lotus, immortelle, olibanum, myrrh and saffron. FRAGRANCE Very awesome top A little saffronic leather. Some floral I can see going into the Egyptian Tombs into this. Very manly in the desert kind of way. Heat brought out a smoke probably birch tar and fragrance went incensy after that. Very incense dry down. I like it it’s a dry crisp incense accord. A nice floral off the top. If your into resins this one would be worth checking out. I like the touch of florals wish they were a little stronger. As far as incense scent there are so many to compete with out there. Hyde by Hiram Green is my current favorite. If this were on sale I could see going for it, but at this price level I already have this one in my collection not much new to bring to the table. I don’t want to take away from the scent. It’s nice I like it, I think it just needs that good old fashioned house accord to separate it from the pack and make me want an incense from Papillon.

  1. Papillon is a great house, I feel they're still underrated. I love Anubis, but have never considered it an incense fragrance. Dryad and Salome are also fab!

    1. I have been burning a lot of myrrh recently that with other resins kinda mixing that in with an incense scent and the olibanum adds to it. It's not a bad thing at all I just think there are a ton of fragrances out there doing this at more competitive prices. Definitely incense to me with those resins. To be fair the fragrance was created 5 years ago and every example that comes to my mind is after, so as an original it deserves a lot of credit.

  2. Anubis was my first niche fragrance. love it to say the least. I also own Dryad, Tobacco Rose, and Salome. They’re all great. My SOTD is Musk Rose Attar by the Rising Phoenix Perfumery

  3. You might be confusing camphor for incense. Hyde for me is even more camphor than A City on Fire though neither I would say are incense. Eau Sacree by Heeley is great example of incense.

    SOTD is Tobacco Rose by her ironically. Not for me, not the rose I like but Papillon is a great house. She doesn’t release a new perfume every year which I appreciate. I feel like she gives a lot of time for development. I wouldn’t complain if she did release something this year though

    1. Thanks for the feedback, I can't wait to wear tobacco rose. I have some incense I burn that smells exactly like Hyde to me and I picked up the note just a bit dryer in this one. I had two people turned off by the scent telling me I physically smelled like a house burning incense lol. I don't see camphor listed on notes on either Anubis or Hyde, definitely doesn't mean it's not in there. Both do use heavy oleoresins in the base.

    2. This is why I love fragrance its such a different experience for everyone. LOL, to the BBQ pit smell it is very heavy and dark. Like I mentioned I have to wear it on a day I am not around my wife, but man I like the darkness of it. For a natural it's go a lot of depth for me.
