Named after the ancient desert city in India, Jaisalmer was inspired by the spices and woods that passed through its namesake trade route, linking India to Egypt. Throughout the Incense series, CdG took at least one element associated with the city/country from which each of the scents take their name; in Jaisalmer, prized Indian ebony is added to resinous guaiac hardwood at the base, while a healthy dose of spice comprises the opening. The opposing sweet spice and earthy wood nature of this incense is a perfect salute to the gorgeous culture amidst the harsh climate of Jaisalmer itself.

Jaisalmer is a beautiful warm fragrance with clear notes of cinnamon, pine, and cardamom. As it dries down, you get a constant throb of pepper and wood. Overall it is really just such a sweet and beautiful scent.
The only downside is its projection and longevity. Jaisalmer's sillage is poor. And it didn't even last two hours on me. So CDG was spot on naming it after a desert. Your nose will be pleased by the oasis of smell, but will trail along your arm seeking for it again and not being certain that you've found it.
