Not for me
The note that stands out the most to me is pepper. To me, it doesn't have an incense-y smell at all. Didn't care for this one at all.

A beautiful androgynous scent
Quite easily a mesmerizing scent that can be worn by both men and women. It has warm, spicy notes, and isn't as masculine as Oddity [definitely more feminine, but not to the point that it comes off as a 'woman's' scent]. It finds the perfect balance for those wanting a non-conforming scent. It doesn't last all day--you'll need to re-apply before leaving the office for dinner/drinks, but it's such a tantalizing scent, you really won't mind. Got several compliments, and lean-ins to sniff... one gentleman on the train kept subtly leaning in to sniff. Its THAT good.

Fade
I love Rag & Bone and have tried a few of their fragrances so when I saw this I was super excited. It smells amazing. I need to say that first. If you want incense, here it is. For some reason though, maybe my body chemistry, this one faded faster than other Rag & Bone fragrances normally do.

Spicey but soft
I absolutely love this perfume! Its right up my alley. It has a baby powder soft undertone to it. And yet a very distinct pepper note. I loved the surprise of pepper at the end. For women who are strong and soft this is a great scent! Not every woman wants to smell fruity.

Amazing and Unique
Very rarely does a scent knock my socks off like this one did. I am constantly getting compliments on the way I smell. I am part of a pretty large social scene and at least twice a night I am asked what perfume I am wearing. It is always my old school Burberry. However, this delicious beautiful fragrance had people turning heads as I walked through the club. One of my new top 3’s.

loved this one
I loved this one. You have to like Myrrh... that and the black pepper together makes for a rich spicey scent. I could easily see a guy liking this too. I feel like its pretty strong... but not in an overwhelming way. It lasted on my skin fairly well... on occasion my sweater would move and I got another waft of it.... but i dont feel like I overwhelmed any one in the office. A few coworkers asked what it was... almost all of them helped themselves to a squirt of it... so i think people liked it enough to try it on their skin I dont feel like this is a girly perfume... I dont think younger people would like it? Its not an "old lady" smell...but it is a more mature scent.

Really Crisp and Light but not my preference
The scent was really crisp and light, I feel like it didn't last as long as I would like but then i also was not fond of the scent so I don't want to be to bias.

very nice, subtle
very unisex with no describable main scent. Not woody, not fruity, not floral, not heady, not spicy. It is the kind of scent I like as overpowering scents hurt my nose. very light pepper, citrus but so mild even a little kid could wear. Really nice.

So unique and earthy...love it.
So far, this has been my favorite perfume. I did not think I would like it, but this scent mixed with my own chemistry really appeals to me. It's like nothing I own and for whatever reason, it make me think of my hometown of San Francisco. It's just unique, earthy, warm and I really love it.

A must have for a casual day...
It’s weird bc on paper the notes of this fragrance are aligned with my taste, but when I smell it straight from the bottle...I wasn’t impressed. But when I sprayed it on my skin, whatever I thought was bad about this scent instantly became great. It’s mellow, long-standing, warm and soothing, not So formal, rather casual but definitely a must have.

Ate this up!
Just what i expected. Encens was my favorite of the three (Encens, Neroli, and Bergamot) All i can say is, it didnt last very long, I ate it up!!! i could wear it anywhere, any time. i dont plan to review Bergamot. Neroli was second in rating.

Very soft almost feminine but just enough spice to put it in that gray area. I almost prefer it on my curtains or sheets instead of my person. A wonderful clean laundry smell.

Appropriately named
This unisex fragrance definitely smells like incense but in a pleasant manner. Definitely more masculine than feminine but I prefer my perfumes that way. The only con to this fragrance is how quickly it fades.

Warm, spicy, complex
Love the black pepper and myrrh notes. Perfect for day or night. The scent began with complexity and ended light and intimate. It is a cool woody fragrance. Definitely a scent that evokes mystery. I would love to smell it on a man.

Incense indeed
Don't believe the Scentbird description that this is a "lightly spiced" scent. It is an extremely heavy, rich incense scent. It's not bad, but it's too heavy and cloying for the summer, when I got it. I think I need to re-order my queue!

My new favorite perfume!
I noticed this perfume lasts longer on fabric than the skin. Wanted to give a heads up since I noticed other people mentioning that it doesn't last long but after 3-4 days I still smell the scent on my clothes. Overall, love this pepery and mature smelling scent.

Adequate
This reminds me a lot of Estee Lauder's Pleasures, which is a good thing. Encens isn't nearly as overpowering though. It has a bold opening which dries down to a pleasant background incense. I never got the pepper. Really quite feminine for something which is described as unisex. Perhaps a little generic for my taste.

Tolerable after it fades
I found this scent to smell much like soap or shaving cream. It’s waaaay too strong at first but eventually fades into a clean, woodsy scent. This may work better for a man.

Peppered sex
I super love this unusual peppered scent. The first time I used it, i was unsure. But the more I wear it, the more i love it. My husbands likes it and says it reminds him of smoky pepper. The touch of smokiness pairs nicely with pepper for a sexy/spicy scent.

This is a very safe office or casual scent IMO. Leans feminine to my nose. Wish there was more incense and pepper with less amber. Overall I would say this would be good for a woman to wear.
