    Default Looking for a not smoky cedar

    Hi. I love woody centered perfumes, expecialy cedar. But I find many good of them are too much smoky : gucci ph I, cdg 2 man, french lover ( too bitter too...), bentley absolute, azzaro visit, ecc...they all are very nice but I don' t like the smokiness in them.
    So, can you suggest me some nice cedar perfume without smokiness ? They could be a little sweet and warm too.
    They come to my mind : loewe 7 natural, kyoto, cedro by accakappa...other ones ? Puig silver quorum ? Carven homme ?

    I can highly recommend Quorum Silver. I started a thread a few weeks back as I was looking a cedar dominated fragrance and it popped up a few times. I blind bought it and really enjoy. It's a straight fresh cedar. That's it. Nothing more, nothing less. Very masculine and quite traditional. Very nice indeed. Bonus points for being really cheap.

    Tam Dao is lovely sandal wood and cedar - recommend a tester at least

    +1 Tam Dao. The EdT leans much more towards cedar than sandalwood, too.

    Tam Dao is nice, but not enough cedar for me. I can feel it actualy more to the santal side than to the cedar, imho. And it' s a bit feminine.

    I think it depends if you are referring to the edt or edp?? edt is all cedarwood and edp is more sandalwood.

    I concur. The EdT is the most cedar-prominent fragrance I can think of.

    Serge Lutens Chene — oak, of course, but if you’re looking for wood, this one smells like fresh milled lumber.

    +1 on Tam Dao EDT

    However, there’s one I like even more, and it’s even more centered around cedar - heck, all it really is cedar with not much more. Tumulte Pour Homme, by Christian Lacroix. It’s been discontinued, sadly, but you can still find it here and there, mostly on eBay though. Pure cedar bliss, no smoke, super modern, lasts all day. Can’t recommend this one highly enough to anyone looking for cedar-centric fragrance. I suspect not many people know about it, hence few recommendations on BN (it’s been out of production for a number of years now) but seriously, it makes Tam Dao look like a poser wannabe.

    I get a lot of really good, fresh cedar from HdP 1828. It's not specifically a wood-centered scent, but the cedar is excellent and grabs my attention in the heart and base.

    What a great cedar fragrance--I wish I had stockpiled Tumulte when it was easily available.

    Possibly also Eau de Iceberg Cedar, Solo Loewe Cedro, Eau de Cedre Bleu, Armani Eau de Cedre, Chopard Noble Cedar- most of these being within the segment of both inexpensive and good value/decent to even great quality for money scents with the required type of note

    I've stockpiled on it, but even now whenever I see a bottle somewhere at a reasonable price - I buy it. No, I won't buy it at $300+ like some people list on eBay, but if I see it for around $100, maybe $150 max, I jump on it (100ml size).

    PS: Anyone interested in it - you can get the smaller 30ml and 50ml bottles for $50-$80, which is very reasonable - and definitely worth checking out. Tumulte PH is a hidden masterpiece very few people know about. Make sure it's the EDT, not the After Shave which is frequently sold on eBay for similar prices.

    Count me as one who'd never heard of Tumulte, but it sounds awesome. Just snagged a .15 oz mini off of ebay.

    Spice and Wood. The cedar king.

    I actually have to push back against Tam Dao EDT. Total hamster cage cedar. Don’t like.
