Did you know that cedar has been a core ingredient in perfumery for centuries? As we're approaching Fall, our Fragrance Familia shoppers have been asking which cedar perfumes we recommend. After all, its resinous wood is often tapped to create fragrances with a warm, woody character.
We carry many beautiful cedar perfumes for the ladies. Take a look!
Halston by Halston: Halston is a true gem and a Fall classic that debuted way back in 1975. This one often evokes nostalgic bliss for many of our Familia members. In addition to its prominent cedar note, Halston features a beautiful blend of other notes: green leaves, mint, peach, melon, bergamot, marigold, carnation, orris, root, rose, jasmine, oakmoss, vetiver, amber, incense, patchouli, sandalwood, and musk.
Halston is pure juicy cedar goodness that's refreshing and longer lasting than many of the modern era scents.
Cypress Cedar by Banana Republic: Absolute perfection for the Fall, Banana Republic's Cypress Cedar is a spicy woody fragrance that's suitable for both men and women. Launched in 2018, this concoction features many brilliant notes aside from cedar: bitter orange, pink pepper, mint, rhubarb, black pepper, cypress, vetiver, moss, patchouli, and musk.
Many compare the DNA of Cypress Cedar to another popular fragrance - Terre D'Hermes. However, our Familia members have commented that one of the key differences is that the Banana Republic perfume outshines it in terms of the cedar, cypress, and minty notes.
Beauty by Calvin Klein: Launched just over a decade ago in 2010, Beauty by Calvin Klein is a must-have Fall perfume. This versatile fragrance includes ambrette, jasmine, and, of course, cedar notes.
The Virginia cedar note shines through here. Not only is Beauty perfect for the Fall, it can really be worn-year round, especially in professional office settings. It's elegant with a soft, luxurious scent.
Ombre Rose by Jean-Charles Brosseau: Launched way back in 1981, Ombre Rose by Jean-Charles Brosseau in a classic floral fragrance for women. Some of the notes this gem features in addition to cedar include Brazilian rosewood, geranium, peach, rose, sandalwood, vetiver, musk, tonka bean, honey, vanilla, and cinnamon.
What makes this one so great for the Fall is its blend of desserty notes while still being a light, airy scent. Rich rose, deep woods, and a resinous cedar work magically together here.
