When I first heard of Cédre I wanted to cry over the notes: cedar, cinnamon, musk, amber *swoon*............................................and tuberose.
TUBEROSE!?!?! You've got to be freakin' kidding me! Tuberose? My heart sank and I wanted to cry! Not to say that I don't like tuberose, but if you're spicing up a floral, why would you choose tuberose?
In my head I was thinking this was going to be a creamy and in your face tuberose so my expectations were low on this fragrance before trying it.
I'm all over the top notes in this fragrance as it opens up with a bold cinnamon that dried down far too soon on my skin. Once it dries down it loses some not all of its momentum. In the drydown the cinnamon is very subtle and the cedar seems to be heavier when the fragrance is closer to my pulse points but tuberose takes center stage in this fragrance. The amber really warms it up and there seems to be a sweetness buried in here - like a drop of honey.
It's still so hot and the high today was 98°F and this scent seemed to be a perfect choice for today as I'm sure it would in colder weather as well. The staying power is really good in this fragrance. Applied it this morning and could still sense it on my skin when I was on the treadmill this evening.
