Here's what other people are saying about Jaisalmer...
Y''all know I LOVE Christmas! Jaisalmer shares the same luminous quality with Masque Milano, as well as a cinnamon kick, to a lesser extent. The only drawback is that I''m not getting more out of this. The alien light isn''t warm and inviting or cold and distant. It''s alien. I don''t want to fly to outer space! For my money, I''d sooner buy another bottle of Serge''s Fille en Aiguilles. Nonetheless, I''m finishing off my last review for 2017 with 5 Stars.

This is exactly like Christmas - and I mean the harshest, most shut in christmas ever - the cold being managed by a severely neglected, sooty fireplace burning the wettest most sappy resinous pine - with a kettle of cinnamon sticks boiling to give a super sweet, uber cloying spicy "festive" effect. This is the exact opposite of Kyoto - being one of the "cleanest" smoke scents I''ve ever experienced. This is the dirtiest. This is raw pine needles stuck on your muddy, frozen boots, stepping into a heat that is almost intolerable. The "quality" of this "scent experience" is quite good - I mean, It does put you there…

After first spray, I already like it better than Avignon. This is so much brighter, bursting with conifer-like incense. Sharp and spicy like CdG’s Black, but with more warmth, which gives this more versatility than either two scents. Unfortunately, I experience the same short lifespan as Avignon, but still a thumbs up!

I absolutely ADORE this fragrance! But I will not buy any more because the scent only lasts about 5 min 10 tops... I would GLADLY pay more if they would make it last longer!! BEAUTIFUL fragrance !!! LOVE it ! Too expensive for the short time of duration. Please make it last longer !!

Wasn''t that impressed with this one. This has to be the lightest woodyinscence frag I''ve sampled. The overall scent was decent, just too light and airy for my taste. I got a light amount of incense and a bit of wood. I really didn''t smell too much spice with this. The wood was nice (I want to say the ebony was what I was getting the most of), there just wasn''t enough for me to love this one. Projection and longevity were weak on my skin.

Gorgeous and comfortable fragrance to wear every day, a peaceful and serene cedar with powdery incense reminiscent of myrrh. The ebony is like a setting that displays the jewel of the cedar and its perfume. Although not the most magical of the series (Kyoto and Avignon seem to pour over the skin like rolling smoke) it is the sexiest and most feminine. It invites the wearer to come in and smell it. More like an altar than a church. Love it! I give it four stars for creativity but five for wearability--I bought a FB.

This is my favorite of the incense series. A sweet and spicy cedar, I inhale deeply when I wear this. As do others. Full bottle worthy for sure.

...just wanted to add-after 20 minutes or so of wearing this, I keep getting little wafts of frankencense. But only if I really jam my nose into my wrist,lol. There really is no lasting power to this.

I''d say this is leaning towards masculine instead of unisex. Cedar and cinnamon are predominant upon application, with an astigent (not unpleasant) overlay. I didn''t find that it gave much sillage, it sits close to my skin (maybe you need to spray this one to get some waft).After it settles, it''s mostly soft cedar and a vague,muted lemoney scent ...and then, Jaisalmer simply dissapears.
By   - from Airdrie, AB Canada on 8/23/2011
Smells interesting first out of the sample bottle, but then just becomes cedar, cinnamon, and opopanax (sweet myrrh--which is odd, bc I don''t see that listed on in the scent notes) on me. In fact, I was able to approximate the scent with those essentials oils and some frankincense and cardamom thrown in. I still prefer Avignon, which I sweeten up with Regina Harris'' Frankincense, Myrrh, and Rose Maroc.

After the drydown, it smells like cedar on me, which I find very soothing and pleasant. It is not a perfume that I would wear in the traditional sense ( dressing up or for daily wear to the office) I want this for at home to spend a contemplative day surrounded by it.

Am I alone in thinking this smells similar to Standard? Not a bad thing, as I love them both...

I really love this. It is IMO the most wearable of the series, closely followed by Kyoto. It is also -IMO again- the one where the incense is the least prominent it''s mainly cedar and spices for me, both scents I love anyway. My favorite of the line, along with Avignon which unfortunately needs some spine to wear in public, with good lasting power (over 8 hours in my skin) and sillage. Definitely my next full bottle purchase.

This is quite strong compared with other CdG perfumes but I love it. A strong cedar smell to me, but mixed with spices and other woods. I think it is lovely, but actually think it might be better on a man? Either way, it is serene, delicate and powerful, all at the same time!

Has a very clove scent dry down
By   - from Dothan on 6/23/2008
I adore this. Heavily spiced woods, deep and comforting. An autumn and winter scent. I actually prefer this over Avignon, with my chemistry Jaisalmer is the far more wearable of the two.

This is the third CDG Incense I have tried, and NONE of them have dissapointed me. In the drydown I get spicy woods, so I feel lucky!

I bought this as a chance. From the other reviews I figured that I would have to like it, even a little bit. I sprayed it on my forarm and became intoxicated. This is not the smell of the india I know. If you like avignon, and who doesn''t?, this is an actual wearable version aside from christmas mass. I smell cedre, clove, and wood, a forest after a heavy rain fall in the automn.

I like woody-incense type scents. Jaisalmer is my favourite. I do like the smell of some of the other CdG incense scents - as long as they''re not actually on me! I like Jaisalmer''s sharpness - a newly made wooden box full of fresh cardamom, cinnamom and pepper. My other preferred scent is Let Me Play tyhe Lion - a less distinct experience - older, dustier, softer, and sweeter - anise and sandalwood.

Curious after reading the rave reviews, this one did not leave me in ecstacy.On me, it evoked bushels of funeral flora arrangement.that said, it takes a master perfumier to create scents that so clearly and specifically evocative.
By  on 7/27/2007
I liked this a lot - at first. It''s lighter than Avignon and has more cedar - not quite as intoxicating, but a bit easier to wear. Unfortunately it eventually lost its sweetness and evolved into a mildly pungent cedar. Not as interesting.

The best of whole series 3. Very rich, very serious, very dark. It is the church and medicines mixed in a bottle. It has some of Avignon notes, but also keeps some freezing cold (like Zagorsk). Truly unique!
By   - lighting designer on 5/21/2007
my 2nd favorite after avignon (truthfully almost a tie) but absolutely wonderful in it''s own right. exotic and mysterious and aptly described by Luckyscent, an incense lovers dream!
By   - radiographer from cambridge on 4/1/2007
I was pleasantly surprised by the tester I received of this one. It''s more masculine than I am usually attracted to, but I love it. It''s warm and something in it reminds me of my mother, but not in an old-lady way: more of a comfort and safety way

This smells just like church incense. I don''t like it. Sorry!

First of all, the entire Incense series is worth buying. I have a ridiculous sized collection of fragrances, but the scents that have gotten the best reaction from others have always been incense based fragrances. I bought a bottle of Jaisalmer blind after trying Zagorsk and Avignon- both rapturous! That first drag of Jaisalmer made me smile from ear to ear- its just so deep. Its a bit sweet but so dry and woody that it never loses its sharp edge. And if you''re the mercenary sort who occasionally wears a fragrance with the intent of seduction, believe me, Jaisalmer will stack the deck in your favor. But its really a scent to wear for yourself. Like a warm cup of spiced tea, its very comforting. I give high praise to CdG for the whole Incense series-If ever there were five scents that I felt were bespoke just for me, here they are. Also if you like this series, try Skai from the Synthetic series, its got a warm, burned incense quality that turns heads like nothing else-except its got a freaky twist to it that "clothes-lines" people when they get a whiff!

This scent is so cool and grounding, it''s like peace in a bottle! Full-bottle worthy.

"No" does not exist in this universe

Intense, spicy, woodsy, longlasting, very strong. Something more for a man than a woman. Every fragrance on the Incense series is DIVINE !!!!!
By   - artist from Fla. on 5/13/2005
incredibly sexy..dry..woody..and alluring..familiar and exotic..
By   - floral designer from new york on 1/31/2005
Nice and spicy, easy to wear,but I prefer Gobin-Daude''s Nuit de Desert as an exotic incensy-spice
By   - student from Phoenix on 1/25/2005
Seems very cedary-spicy to me at first, but it has a very nice dry down. I can smell the guaiac wood in the dry down. I find it a bit strong, but wearable and longlasting.

SMELLS LIKE INCENSE IN AQ GREEK CHURCH!

Simplemente... LA ADORO!!!Rica y super sexy!
By   - from Miami on 12/10/2004
Wow! I didn''t think CdG could top Avignon or Kyoto, but this is so wonderful. Incense, for sure, but also the sweet spiciness of an Indian grocery store. Very good staying power, too.
By   - Classical Music from Kansas City on 12/8/2004
I really liked this, smelled a little piney even though it''s not listed as a pine scent.
