When A Precious Wood Becomes Perfume
Again with the Matières, a beautiful, seductive bottle with shades ranging from deep blue to translucent. With the first spray, you will have a first impression of what you will wear. Watery and sober. A slightly misleading name since Bois de Cèdre translates to cedarwood, and that's not quite what I'm getting most of here. Perhaps a little too loaded with violet leaves and too weak in the woods. Just a matter of taste. It is a good, ready-to-use fragrance, perhaps with a hidden personality. Bois de Cèdre takes me into an elegant dimension with a fern facet, a masculine slant yet not too virile. Despite the blue shades of the bottle, I don't feel any maritime vibes, more earthy than anything else, but once again, it combines with the other notes to create a masculine barber's fragrance.

I immediately thought, "What is this?" I recognize this perfume already smelled somewhere many years ago. It wasn't woody, and it was an aquatic with salt, alcoholic liquor and a good dose of ambergris. At that moment, I understood: in the mid-2000s, I had a clash with Vetiver & Rum Eau de Toilette. It is a beautiful citrus woody and aromatic, lavender and clary sage oblige. After spraying Bois de Cèdre on my skin, I immediately think of the barbershop because of the opening scent on my skin. It unfurls citrus, soapy, and woody. The wet and dusty violet leaves dominate, with citrus fruits and dry cedar shavings in the background. Bergamot and grapefruit sketch, a slight smile completed by the violet leaf which brings its finesse and wet muskiness leading toward earthiness. Clean, slightly sweet, very young and innocent. Reminiscent of the scents of soaps and bubble baths I used when I was young. I like. It is a dominant opening of violet and bergamot, followed by a light floral and woody scent—not a note of petroleum violet because the citrus fruits round it off.

The more the scent develops, the more it gets salty and soapy. A surprising facet of light animalic saline with notes of ambergris and sage follows top accord. The scent borrows its aromatic notes from lavender and fresh, almost medicinal clary sage, accompanied by geranium and a hint of mint, all bathed in a salty sea spray effect. Salvia sclarea, also called "grass moscatella" for its leaves that macerate in vinegar, giving the aroma of "muscat," is a plant particularly used in enology to intensify the aroma of wine and beer, as well as an important component of vermouth. The whole plant is velvety and dense and gives off a musky smell. It is fresh and perfect for sunny days.

In the base, a veil of ambergris, cashmere wood and cedar essence, and the charm operates without overdoing it—a modern and addictive salt effect. The last stage reveals a nuance of musky amber, persistent cedar, and cashmere wood. The woods dominate the ocean's shores and draw the quintessence of its style.

Very good. Discreet, clean, and solid smell. It has that sea breeze atmosphere going on. Also, for women, if desired. It is easy to find, versatile, and delicate but relaxing and cheap. It is an essential cologne for everyday wear, a fragrance with an important presence in the olfactory wardrobe, characterized by cedar bark that evokes tanned leather. The projection is moderate for about a few hours, then settles closer to the skin. It's a kind of barbershop without being a trustworthy barber scent, a solid modern take to me if you're into that genre. I don't think it's for everyone, but it's good men's casual wear. It is a pleasant fragrance for warm seasons, and it will work in the cooler summer weather but can cloy in the heat. It is not a clone of any fragrance. A great perfume for everyday, casual, for work, at the gym and even for a date in summer.
