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: 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!!
Summary: Cèdre is a huge, strong bold woody/spicy fragrance. Very, very spicy at the beginning. Loud, like a frag of the Eighties. I was probably expecting the fruit (i like all citrus notes) of cedar coming out.. Indeed , this is not the case. It starts off harsh and medicinal… maybe the resins? Not feminine at all. I was expecting the tuberose (a note I adore) being soft and feminine and all I have is an headache.
Summary: Medicinal open. Although well blended, I personally do not care for tuberose, although much more tolerable mixed with cedar. This is one of the best niche perfume lines, and there are many more choices that are beautifully made and bottle-worthy to me, so this is not one I'll purchase. All the SL's are well-worth sampling, though, if you are a perfumista! Tuberose, cedar and woody notes, most would describe this as masculine.
Summary: Not much to add to the despcriptions of this scent, as the other reviewers have already covered all bases. I will only add that this fragrance gave me an off-the-Richter scale headache, a fairly rare event. I cannot see any man wearing this but anyone who likes complex, sweet amber scents should probably give this one a whirl. Definitely one to be sampled before buying.
Summary: As did other people, I expected mostly cedar with a name like this, but found mostly tuberose. This is an attractive but difficult flower for some people to wear. I prefer it paired with a great deal of woodiness, which I did not get here. The clove, which is another note that I like, provided no further assistance in toning down the heat and sweetness of the tuberose. I envy those who can wear this; it is a beautiful scent.
Summary: Well color me happy - I love this one. I sniffed it at Barney's the minute it hit the store and though "hmmm. sweet. No cedar. I really like this". Didn't buy. Came home, read the less-than-stellar reviews and thought I must have missed something. Well lo and behold, I re-sniffed and tried Cedre on my skin yesterday and instantly knew it would be mine.
Summary: This is the first Serge Lutens exclusive I have tried (thanks to kealle!) and I have to say it is misleadingly named. I can't smell any cedar at all in it! I nearly scrubbed it off because the first half-hour of Cedre is overwhelmingly burnt-smoky on me with just the faintest hint of fruit. After half an hour, however, the smoky note becomes more muted and tobacco-like and I can smell fruits and spices - very deep and muted and winey.
