    Default New Fragrance: Chopard Noble Cedar

    From fragrantica.com:

    Chopard’s Noble line of fragrances emerged in 2010 when the elegant and masculine fragrance Noble Vetiver was presented, marking the 150th anniversary of the house. By the end of this year, it will be followed by the second fragrance of the line, named Noble Cedar. Noble Cedar is made to be a distinguished and refined fragrance for lovers of luxury, which exudes modern and urban elegance just as the previous edition does.

    This woody and slightly spicy composition is created by perfumers Lucas Sieuzac and Nathalie Feisthauer, who focused on a unique cedar agreement. The top bursts with fresh tones of silver birch leaf, followed by the heart made of aromatic sage. Cedar wood combined with warm labdanum resin form the sensual base of this perfume.

    Top notes: silver birch leaf
    Heart: sage
    Base: cedar, labdanum

    The bottle design is signed by Suzanne Dalton. Chopard Noble Cedar is available as Eau de Toilette in quantities of 30, 50 and 80 ml.

    This is the kind of scent I'm drawn to like a moth to flame, but they end up disappointing me too often. A well-done, simple, smooth, cool woody herbal scent would really hit the spot, and I hope Chopard can pull it off. I just hope the "warm labdanum resin" isn't marketer-speak for "shitty woody amber base."

    Love the bottle.

    Witty response. What makes you say that? An assumption or?

    The Vetiver was ok, nothing special or anything. Maybe I will like this one better.

    Can it possibly top Tumulte PH? Dear Lord, when I have a cedar jones, I grab that baby and the all my problems melt away.

    As usual, petruccijc gives us the breaking news. Thanks!
    I like "Noble" (an often misunderstood adjective; connoting **restraint**, poise, elegance, ease, an abundance of resources but skillfully deployed...) and Cedar sounds nice and woody.
    Gee, do I have any hope for "Noble Pine" or "Noble Spruce"? ::fingers crossed::

    I own Noble Vetiver, which essentially corresponds to Ody's description, and I would expect Noble Cedar to be along the same lines. I don't think Noble Cedar will be anything like Tumulte or other strong, woody fragrances. I expect it will be a light fragrance in which the cedar is tempered by the other ingredients. Cedar will still be the star of the show, but it won't hit you over the head. Well, maybe with a feather.

    I have this which is a worthy successor to their first release in this series. Picked this up from their boutique in NY. It's akin to L'Occitane's Cedre if you are familiar with that, with good longevity.

    I wonder how the longevity of this compares to that of Noble Vetiver?

    I tried it on my wrist today.

    It smells very very similar to Noble Vetiver but without the vetiver.

    None if the notes listed above. They're well blended. Im sure many will be able to pick out the notes but they don't stand out.

    Very nice. Longevity is excellent.

    I was telling alfarom earlier that they created a base, like the guerlinade , in the former they added vetiver and in this cedar as depicted by the title. I'm not very familiar with cedar so I'm not the best to state whether it's as prominent in this as either was in Noble Vetiver.

    Any more thoughts on this? I'm considering picking up a bottle of Noble Vetiver as that scent has slowly won me over (it's so understated and restrained that it is easy to miss its elegance!). I really love both of the perfumers for this one and am curious to try it but of course it's only available as a blind buy from a Chopard boutique in the US at the moment.

    SoS, ironically I'd sent you a a parcel containing 10ml of Noble Vetiver, among other niche samples, which you never got. Funny.

    Looks like you're meant to never smell it .

    For the price, a full bottle might be cheaper than a sample

    That's pretty good if that's for the 80ml size since originally that was going for close to $90.

    I think I paid mid-$20s for it last fall, for the 50 ml size. Fragnet is out of stock and asking prices on the bay are ~double what they were 6-8 months ago, so even mid-$30s for the 50 ml doesn't look too bad now. Sampling is going to be tough. I don't think I've ever seen it in a brick & mortar, and the online sample sites don't seem to carry much of anything from Chopard (I've done some searching trying to sample Oud Malaki, no luck yet). Noble Cedar was a blind buy for me and I've been happy with the pickup. Good frag for the money, has a modern vibe without smelling objectionably synthetic, and it seems well blended overall with no really glaring notes in the mix. That includes the cedar, which is clearly present but not exactly dominant (similar to the level of vetiver in Noble Vetiver). Projection is moderate to light, a 1-2 foot scent bubble for 15-30 min then it wears closely after that. Longevity is pretty good, about 6-8 hours on skin.
