Another fragrance that I have already tested a few years ago and have bought only now. He liked me very well earlier, but the big spark was not jumped over, similar to the Wave Musk
, which I have also tested a long time ago and only bought this summer. Mancera has many fragrances that I find extremely interesting for everyday wear. These fragrances from the brand are easy to wear in everyday life without being overpowering. Still, they have a lot of recognition and charm. The most important thing for everyday life: Performance!
For a long time, Aventus was indicated here as a fragrance twin. Did not find at all that these are related on a fragrance twin basis. Nevertheless, it must be said: the style is similar. They also go in a similar direction in terms of occasion and vibe. I have to be clear though: this Cedrat Boise I find casual, where the Creed and its x-clones go more in a classic direction. The Cedrat Boise is already clearly more my thing. However, I find the comparison between Cedrat Boise and Aventus superfluous, as both are independent enough. I also find the copying of the two to be a bit far-fetched. This Cedrat Boise came a year after Aventus and thus before the great hype on the market.
This Cedrat Boise is Mancera's big cash cow. This brand has some popular scents, but this one is already a big name in the fragrance community. Rightfully so. For me, it's an everyday weapon. Especially for people who want to keep their collection small, this one would be a great option: except in high heat and freezing cold, you can always wear this one. But I see this one best between 10 and 20 degrees. Especially for everyday wear, as it comes across as cool yet classy and elegant. The best thing about this fragrance I find the perfectly balanced facets: very pleasant woody notes, noble leather, fruity-fresh currant and lemon, plus a pleasant and not too heavy sweetness.
It starts with a lot of currant. A note that may occur gladly more often in fragrances. Very unrated. Here fresh fruity with subtle fresh citric. From the start, this fragrance is accompanied by a nice noble leather note, but it never quite pushes itself to the fore. It gives the creation a serious touch. In keeping with the name, there is of course a lot of wood. Very gentle and harmonious with the leather and currant. A nice subtle sweetness also accompanies this fragrance without becoming toouu sweet. It always stays on a serious and not too playful level. Overall, for me, a great blend of classic and modern fragrance that can be worn well by young and old. The unisex status is ok, but for me rather masculine. Nevertheless, ladies can actually wear everything.
The performance is much almost all Manceras really great. Good sillage and he holds loosely through a working day. This plays an important role in everyday life. Who wants to wear this to other occasions can do so. The goes actually always, except for sports activities.
The fragrance is considered a compliment-getter, if you believe some people's social media posts. Quite possibly. A crowdpleaser that is special and you can't go wrong with. Also available at a fair price. Especially the great 120ml bottle.
