It's very stemmy - not just a floral but a cut flower floral.
Funny, but before I even tried Insense
, I made a perfume with Yosh Han and my requirement was a "masculine floral" because I was digging Tubereuse Criminelle
so much at that time, and it smells quite similar in many ways to Insense
. Another fragrance that has many similar attributes to Insense
, to me, is Odeur 71
