Incense is one of the oldest scents used in perfumery. It is a penetrating, elegant and oriental aroma. Incense was originally an aroma that was reserved for kings and queens, closely linked to religious ceremonies and rituals. This made it included in the category of exclusive and most valued fragrances.
Today this aroma is still present in the world of perfumery due to its powerful smell, which is perceived from a distance and with an unmistakable perfume. An aroma that will leave a fragrance where you pass the most personal and unique. This aromatic note is usually included in men's fragrances, but it is also present in niche and feminine perfumes.
The incense used for perfumes is extracted from the resin of the Boswellia tree (popularly known as the frankincense tree). It is usually present in places like Ethiopia, Oman and India, so as soon as we smell it we relate it to these eastern areas. The resin obtained from the bark of this tree is known as frankincense, which is applied in fragrances, being an excellent fixative on the skin, so it is recommended to apply this type of perfume once a day.
The ideal is to use this type of perfume in autumn and winter, since being such a penetrating aroma, in times like summer it can be burdensome. In line with the above, being a warm note, it blends very well with these times of the year. If you like aromas that provide elegance, this is your perfect fragrance that should not be missing from your perfumes.
