Summary: I was send Cedre by mistake by a online store, I order Feminite de bois and they send Cedre, Cedre costing more on the website I decide to open the box and try it anyway, fully aware I couln't returned if it was open, and boy was I happy of that mistake. Cedre is a really nice unisexe perfume I could se a man as well as of a woman wearing it. I do smell wood and dried fruit ...
Summary: This smelled like grape soda or candy and I laughed out loud. Smell again ... Not quite grape but that's the closest ... I nice smelling grape, possibly flowers behind it? I focused my mind on thinking of cedar and can sort of feel it ... Grape cough drop.
Summary: Serge Lutens' Cèdre can easily be described with one word, confusing. If you are a serious Serge Lutens fan, you might know that cedar is Serge's favorite tree. With that in mind, Cèdre should be a clearly focused, intensely woodsy scent. Not so, Cèdre has a twist. The opening of Cèdre is a very soft, like a whisper. The cedar note makes its entrance very quietly and almost unnoticed. There is a floral note that appears but it is muddled at this point.
Summary: Cédre is deceiving. As others have noticed, there is lack of an obvious take on cedar wood. You wont find it in the opening. Cèdre starts with clove and more, very camphoraceous and medicinal , like a herbal remedy for cough, and this harsh opening might put some off. It is not pretty, but i find it tonic and invigorating. From the menthol-rub rise some white petals.
Summary: As a tuberose fan, I was looking forward to trying this. I like the clean, fresh smell of cedar wood and was very curious to see how it would smell when blended with one of my favorite heady white floral notes. I wasn't quite prepared for the somewhat nauseating opening. People are describing it as candied fruit but to me it smells like sweet and sharp patchouli, the note I hate most in all of perfumery.
Summary: I spritzed this on the back of one arm today at Blue Mercury...holy hell. No wonder I hadn't tried this one before - I forgot there's tuberose in it. It started off with that dried fruit accord that I get from a lot of Lutens and that I passionately detest. So, a spiced dried fruit and tuberose monster that actually left me a little nauseated and sparked a headache.
Summary: Spray yourself with a big tuberose perfume of the 80's (Giorgio, Carolina Herrera, Fred Hayman 273, first-edition Chloe). Then go out for a night of absolute, wretched debauchery. Smoking, drinking, dancing, having sex, fighting, getting lost in bad parts of town, losing continence, upchucking, and finally collapsing, still dressed, into a fleabag motel at dawn. When you wake up, bleary-eyed and covered in myriad bodily fluids, you will smell like Cedre.
Summary: Goes onto my skin as a rich, layered wood scent, but quickly starts to smell like a version of Tabu for men, complete with that cola note. (I suspect this is from the cinnamon and cedar together.) It's still very nice, stronger and more woody than Tabu, but with the same sort of profile.
Summary: Love this, and yes you need to love tuberose in a grand manner to embrance this one. It's not very woody nor very masculine, but while fracas is a bit dry and powdery this is more creamy I'd say. The sillage on this one is incredible and it lasts forever.
Summary: Cedar totally dominates when I wear this, there is barely a hint of tuberose of anything floral, its just woody and quite masculine. After a couple of hours it gets more pleasant, cedar, spice, honey and amber but no tuberose. Its okay but I just don't love it enough to buy it after my sample runs out. It disappears quickly too three to four hours after application which is suprising considering how overpowering the first few minutes are!!
