I wore this in the mid to late 70's and it seems it was only availabe during the holidays. It was a very warm spicy, incensy floral and quite unusually beautiful. I have a full bottle I found at eBay several years ago. Unfortunately, the top notes are nearly gone, but some of the mid and base notes are a reminder of this fantastic sleeper. Jovan had some incredible perfumes. This and Sport Scent for Women were my favorites.

It does sound wonderful! In the course of my research (said she importantly), I noticed that Jovan has great affection for leather, since it seems to be in half of their perfumes :-) Not in F+M, but it still sounds fab.

sounds like a forbidden fruit to me, delicious, not too sweet, seducing...
Fragrant wishes and I hope you get better soon!

I've only had three perfumes in my life that I truly loved, and Frankinscense & Myrrh was one of the three. I do wish they'd bring it back!! Even for the holidays -- I'd buy enough to stock up!

I bought some at a garage sale 20 years ago and was WILD about it! I have been looking for it ever since. I wish Jovan would bring it out again!

I wore this in the late 70s as a teenager and it was absolutely wonderful, but then I couldn't find it any more and took up Fracas and Ninja. It was gorgeous. I miss it.

I had a bottle of this in the 1970s; got as a gift and once was able to buy a replacement. It was rich, sweet and gentle; no "stinging effect" but pure sweetness. Worked so well with my chemistry. I really miss it! Some suggested at that we petition Coty to bring it back. I am sending Coty a message in a minute. ( I would buy it again in a heartbeat if they'd bring it back.
