    Default Fragrances With A Light Touch Of Cedar.

    I love the smell of cedar but in small doses. Can you suggest a fragrance that doesn't go overboard with this note.

    The greatest use of cedar has to be Royal Oud which contains no oud at all but a wonderful woody accord that wears beautifully.

    One comes to mind: Creed Spice and Wood. This one is a very subtle scent so this could work.

    Answered a question a while ago about cedar. I will give the same answer to the OP'S question as well. Carbone De Balmain is a nice inexpensive cedar that you should enjoy.

    An excellent cedary base, but not overwhelming.

    Another one I thought of since my last reply is APOM. It is a light touch of cedar to my nose with more orange blossom and ylang-ylang but the cedar is there nonetheless.

    When I was a kid, I first inhaled the pencil sharpener shavings in elementary school and it was an almost sexual thrill. Something about Cedar can be wonderful. Sensual and sexy.

    I personally love cedar and consider it my favorite note. There's a gorgeous light cedar note in Allure Homme Sport (in the drydown). There's a sweet wet cedar note in D&G The One ETC which I LOVE. More prominent but pleasant cedar can be found in CDG Wonderwood, Dyptique Tam Dao, Creed Royal Oud (more so Sandalwood though), Creed Royal Mayfair (A mix of Pine and Cedar which is very realistic), and Creed Himalaya (a soft and powdery Cedar which is quite nicely mixed with the grapefruit note).

    A friend used to wear Prada Infusion d'Iris Cèdre, and the cedar note in it always struck me as a wisp of a thing. The whole scent actually seemed maybe a bit too faint? I remember he used to complain about longevity, so maybe it is not the best option after all, but it was the only one I could think of. Then again, on the other hand, he often said his skin eats most fragrances whole, so, maybe try it out if you can and if it interests you?

    Armani Eau de Cedre

    I get primarily black tea, suede, violet, cardamom with cedar never being too prominent in spite of the name of the fragrance. Very refined and subtle, but persistent. I dislike cedar in large doses, and this strikes the perfect balance for me.

    Le Vetiver Itasca by Lubin has cedar in the base, but not too much. A wonderfully complex combination of notes to my nose.

    +1 Serge Lutens Feminite du Bois: coincidentally, wearing this one today and enjoying it more than usual.

    Also:

    - Diptyque Tam Dao EdT: all about the cedar, not sandalwood in this formulation,
    - Armani Prive Cedre Olympe: very good, but also very discontinued.

    Armani Mania is a good one. The opening to this one damn near bordered on Holy Grail material for me (which never happens....ever), but it was over in literally 20–30 minutes, leaving behind it just a light ozonic smell with a trace of cedar. I found the heart and base mediocre but if you’re looking for a light cedar smell, it could be perfect. You should check it out.

    “Another One Of Those Oxygen” also turns into a very nice cedar scent. This niche brand flopped so you should be able to find these heavily discounted where available. Oxygen may have been their best one.

    A couple I came across recently would be Cartier Declaration Parfum, eh. And Oud Extrait MFK, very nice.
    It’s tragic to think that heroic man’s great destiny is to become economic man, that men will be reduced to craven creatures who crawl across the globe competing for money, who spend their nights dreaming up new ways to swindle each other.
