    The Thing is, there are MANY cedarwood oils. Let's start with a latin binomial for what you have that you want to replace?

    Cedryl Acetate :-)
    I really like it, its light - but its basically a upper-middle note..
    It doesnt last all that long.

    Question: have you tried other types of cedar woods?
    Cedar Virginia smells very different from Cedra Atlantica

    the problem with cedarwood eo is that it's expensive and not as strong as synthetics... I used various types of cedarwood...Virginia...Texas...Himalaya...atlas... But they are useless because they're too weak.
    so thank you for your suggestions.
    I will try cedrol and cedryl acetate. I hope that these compounds are strong enough to be used in a spray air freshener...
    little ot @geco ho ordinato heliotropex. Appena arriva ti faccio sapere se é roba buona. Grazie dei consigli.

    Air fresheners?
    Wow, thats WAY beyond my level of expertise,
    you should definitely consult a professional, or one of the more advanced people here.
    How about Paul Killer?


    With regards to perfume.
    "strength," is relative.


    If you use fewer middle and top notes, OR if you use materials that are not as powerful, that have less impact then cedar...
    then the cedar will definitely certainly show up in your formula.
    You may want to consider lessening the volume of the other materials in your formula?


    Do you mean to boost the projection of a cedar like scent in an air freshener?
    This is an advanced problem, definitely consult a pro.

    Matt
