Wears very close to the skin with a moderate projection. Never overwhelming thanks to the quality and dosage of the various ingredients, the rhubarb helps to calm down the cedar and makes the scent cozy, as someone else pointed out, it would be better to wear in cold weather. What strikes me the most in this scent is that is so enveloping and smooth… like cashmere scarf. Although not between my favorites scents, I keep coming back quiet often to it and always with great pleasure.

Kind of unprepossessing on paper, but much better on my skin. A resiny, deep woodsy accord right off the bat, slowly evolving into something a bit sweeter and slightly awkward for a bit; then it projects a really piney, resinous note with a hint of floral sweetness (the jasmine or the iris?) and a tantalzing bit of saltiness. Ended up leaning into the wind by the junipers plastered to the ground by years of sea squalls. This is a cool scent overall, but paradoxically, will probably do nicely in cooler, wetter weather.
A flimsy woodsy/spicy, slightly powdery concoction with the ubiquitos fresh edge. Sweet, bland and unsure where it wants to go. As generic and mass-market as any of the horde of those ozonic/aquatic scents that fragrance makers have been churning out throughout the last decade. Not much cedar in it, either.
This fragrance - part of the Homme Collection by Jean Charles Brosseau -is surprisingly the strangest scent of the group. I was expecting a true cedar scent something like Comme des Garcons would produce or a cedar dominated beauty like Feminite du Bois. However, while the cedar is evident in the composition, there is an equally strong fruity component which renders the scent much less dry than one would imagine. It is a very well composed and versatile scent, just not what I was expecting.
