Not very feminine
I did not care for this scent at all. So much so that I didn’t want to spray it again to be able to describe it. FYI - my faves are YSL Black Opium & Chloe Nomade

spicy
Encens doesnt have much of an incense fragrance. It is, however, very spicy. To me, nutmeg really stands out. If you like spicy orientals, this is for you.

Clean soapy smell
The scent is nice. Goes on clean and mellows to powdery smell on my skin. The smell wasnt active for a full day.

If you like pepper, this might be for you
Pepper hits you like a slip and fall in McCormick's spice Isle. It fades to citrus flower and myrrh, but way too late to save this scent. The incense either doesn't agree with my body chem, or is completely overpowered by the weird clay smell of pepper, citrus flower and myrrh.

Slightly too strong
In small doses, I love this smell. But the incense smell gets to me after awhile.

Great for alone time!
my Wife absolutely hated this fragrance, the pepper notes were very overwhelming and did wonders at keeping her at a distance. More effective then sunlight on a vampire!!

Soft and smoky but zero lasting power
Although I love the notes used in Encens, the fragrance has zero lasting power. Very soft and smoky at first, sort of a powdery incense that lingers for about 3-5 minutes and then nothing. Very disappointed in both fragrances I have received thus far in my subscription. My go-to fragrance is Nuits de Noho by Bond No.9 and my second fav is Madison Avenue by Bond so I am used to scents that linger without being overpowering.

Really grows on you!
I was really looking forward to receiving this fragrance, and to be honest I was a little disappointed when I first tried it on! It had a really old and musty note to it-- kind of like Grandma's closet-- that was a bit stronger than I was okay with. It also seemed to fade almost immediately, to the point where I wondered if I had accidentally sprayed it the wrong direction. HOWEVER, after about 15 minutes, this scent finally settled into my skin and because this really wonderful, warm, mysterious, musky fragrance that I'm really enjoying. It's subtle (may be due to my light-handed application) and masculine (without smelling like aftershave) and, best of all, doesn't give me a migraine like most scents!

So disappointing
This product doesn’t smell anything like what it’s supposed to! Every single scent that’s supposed to be in it is not. You can’t smell any of them. It’s a terrible fragrance, I can’t even wear it and they won’t let me return it for something else! How is that fair? I put my subscription on hold because I don’t know if I can trust this site to give me scents that I am interested in by having things that are misleading in what the smell is supposed to be! This needs to be fixed! So disappointed! I haven’t liked most of the fragrances they’ve sent me because they don’t smell like they’re supposed to, and like I said, they won’t let me return them if I don’t like them, which is just WRONG

Delightful!
This one starts out with a spicy accent, then settles into a clean, fresh scent. Not too heavy and not too light. I love this one!

unisex
This type of scent has become very popular/trendy- I prefer R&B version. It's not flora at all, it has a lot of spice. I can see a man or woman wearing this. I think it could be worn all year long.

peppery but not too much
I was surprised I liked this as much as I did. The pepper smell is strong at first but settles in pretty quickly on me and then has a softer floral scent.

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.
