    Default Creed Cedre Blanc alternative

    Hi, there are aspects of Cedre Blanc that I love: the creamy, white cedar smell is great.

    But the spicy head is just a bit much. Too much cardamom and galbanum kind of push the fragrance in a direction I seldom enjoy. (Though artistically this fragrance really is a winner and sometimes I really like it, but it can just be be a bit.. much for regular use.)

    So then, are there any similar fragrances you can recommend that deliver a soft, slightly sweet, cedar and sandalwood combo, but not quite so spicy and green?

    Cedar scents that come to mind-

    AdP Cedro di Taormina - a little more citrus and aromatic than Creed while still built around cedar. One of the best AdP Blu Meditarrano's.

    Cedar Woodpecker by Parle Moid de Parfum - a very green cedar along the lines of the Scent One Suigi, but a nice one.

    TDC Santo Incienso - my favorite cedar fragrance. Strong Palo Santo, Gaiac wood, Sandalwood and Atlas Cedar.

    Tam Dao - although it has sandalwood the cedar is also strong here.

    Not really looking for too much citrus, so Cedro di Taormina might have to wait for the next round.

    I was not impresswith Cedar Woodpecker at all, the ingredients came off as rather low quality.

    Santo Incienso might just be worth a look this round, thanks!

    Tam Dao, after going back and forth on the EDP, I'm not a huge fan of the cedar in this, the rest is great though!

    Perhaps Cedar Atlas by Premiere Note.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
