Scent of the day: Encens Flamboyant by Annick Goutal

Day three of an incense rotation.

Less incense and more pine air freshener, if you ask me. Not all that flamboyant, either, other than the initial blast of churchy incense, which is very strong but burns off in about 10 minutes.

We heat our house with wood and buy huge bags of pine kindling to get the fire started each morning. After half an hour, this fragrance smells rather like the sticky pine resin on those ‘petits bois’ and there’s a touch of red fruits in the drydown, which happens very quickly on my skin.
