this is marketed as a Female frag, but both my wife and I use this as a spectacular summer fresh scent, and more as a layering frag over the top,

it works fantastic over Shalimar, Jicky, and mitso but also over many others outside of the Guerlain range,

beautiful lemon scent instantly refreshes you, cool and delightful, with such a crisp wave of cedar JUST poking through.

very regal scent, but be aware, its an Eau so longevity is very low. However, laid over a parfum it seems to really last.

The ultimate luxury...

Why? Because it is such an expensive, beautiful smell but gone in minutes! Usually, an Eau de Cologne by nature only really consists of top notes. So in this case, it resembles many of the other famous EdC's of the past (including 4711). Still it's a beautiful one, and very naturally made, with real citrus oils.

The story goes that Jacques Guerlain wanted to recreate the smell of his time spend in the luxurious French Riviera. This Eau de Cologne is not meant to be worn as a perfume, but merely splashed or sprayed on throughout the day (at any occasion), when feeling ill, when stepping out of the bath or shower, when walking out the door, before meeting people, at home, at work... wherever! The ultimate luxury... and the smell? A perfect citrus floral combination! Citron (a bitter, rough relative of the lemon, slightly more sour and fruity - which smells more like grapefruit than lemon), and a dose of orange blossom to hold it up. Then, in less than an hour, gone! But then the fun starts again when you re-apply. Very decadent! This is what rich people use just for fun!

I would recommend wearing this the most during the summer months, or better still, if you live somewhere hot. Otherwise it's just pure luxury, but still quite beautiful. Like pure, freshly-squeezed lemonade and ice in an elegant, decadent bottle!

Genre: Citrus

This Guerlain offering starts out as a bracing herbal/floral eau de Cologne variant with a suave and suggestive animalic undertone. The zoological note soon resolves into the indolic facet of a very full orange blossom accord that dominates the heart of the fragrance. I believe that it’s the roundness and potency of this white flower accord that distinguishes Eau de Fleurs de Cédrat from so many other eau de Cologne formulae. Longevity, as you might imagine, is limited, though the indolic florals do extend this scent's life beyond the 45 minute mark. If you're in the market for a floral take on eau de Cologne, you could do a lot worse than Eau de Fleurs de Cédrat.

All I can say is WOW how did I miss this wonderful "Eau " for so long.
It is gloriously refreshing and tangy a real wake me up and make me go aroma.

I came upon it by accident,frazzled by shopping stopped by Guerlain counter to buy "La Petite Robe Noire ".
I was so hot and bothered that the assistant spritzed me with with "Cedrats" and I was hooked.
Made me feel light and airy, even though I wasn't......ideal as a day aroma or anytime you are feeling low....lifts the spirits.

This is my favourite of the Guerlain colognes (Eau de Guerlain is not a cologne, it is an EDT and Guerlain's answer to Eau d'Hermes and Eau Sauvage - sniff and see) in part because it *is* so fleeting. I want to splash on my cologne early in the morning to help me wake up, or right out of a hot bath/shower to cool off, or at the end of the day to refresh, and I don't want it hanging around and interfering with my *perfume*! This is perfect! It's bright and uplifting, it smells of sunshine, and it goes wonderfully well splashed on with any of the classic Guerlains.

If perfumery is chemical poetry, this cologne is a single declarative phrase: *Here sparkles cédrat*. Brusque and initially delicious, the lemon-lime blend of the obovoid fruit are sustained by white florals and a mildly fecal musk base that lead the Eau in a drier direction as it wanes, settling on the pith rather than the pulp of this fruit which is known for often being juiceless. While excellent, Eau de Fleurs de Cédrat's successor, Eau de Guerlain, is far superior.
