    Re: Cedar

    I think you'll absolutely love Bois Marocain by Tom Ford. Sure, it's more of a pine, but any cedar lover will be drawn to it. Best fragrance of all time in my opinion.

    Compliment from my (male) friend on GIT. Haven't worn it much out and about yet so really hoping for some big comments.
