Exotic spices, woods & rare florals combine with rich, sweet amber, vintage Mysore Sandalwood & mellow, aged patchouli to create a more refined and luxurious iteration of the classic Nag Champa Incense experience. Rectified birch tar and halmaddi resin offer a smoky incense nuance without distracting from the clarity & brightness of the delicate rose, jasmine & champaca absolutes. The drydown leaves behind an intoxicating earthy amber-vanilla with hints of Himalayan musk accord and warm, creamy East Indian Sandalwood. This is what genuine Nag Champa smells like.

NOTE: When sampling, please spray on skin. Due to the high percentage of natural ingredients in this fragrance, you will not be able to experience the full complexity & development of this fragrance if simply sprayed on a paper blotter.



Natural Perfume may appear slightly cloudy at times or particulate may be visible floating in the bottle. This is normal for perfumes containing high quantities of natural resins & waxes. I filter my natural perfumes multiple times before bottling, but due to changes in temperature & aging, a small amount of sediment may appear over time. This does not negatively affect the performance of the perfume. In fact, these natural waxes & resins are highly scented aromatic materials that will melt into your skin when applied, giving the perfume an enhanced richness & longevity. Enjoy!

    Sacred Smoke is far and away the best Nag Champa perfume I have ever found. It's downright sumptuous, yet wears beautifully in muggy heat. Simply stunning.

    This is the single best Nag Champa scent I have ever smelled. The scent has great projection and amazing longevity. This is the perfect incense fragrance.

    This really is another fantastic refine. Beginning to think Darren Alan can do no wrong. Personally I don’t get smoke or incense but those were the notes my husband immediately picked up. Patchouli is gorgeous, if you are a fan of Coromandel by Chanel you will love this. Dry down is incredible, long lasting scent. Probably not for heat as it’s quite strong. Love it!!

    A wonderful scent

    This is a wonderful sweet, smokey incense scent. It's a very uplifting scent and it lasts. Not as camp fire-like as others like By the Fireplace and A City on Fire. I prefer this over both of those.

    A Rich Incense Fragrance

    Posted by Sara on 22nd Nov 2021

    I gave Darren Alan's Sacred Smoke a 4 out of 5 only because I am jaded and have smelled much better fragrances made by his hand! That being said - this is a great incense perfume - TRULY nag champa! Not overly smoky but really intrinsic and meditative! If you want to be transported to a Buddhist Temple whenever you feel like it - this is the fragrance for you!
