Creed Bois de Cedrat

25 Feb

Bois de Cedrat opens with straight bright lemon. This is by far the most lemony cedar fragrance I have ever encountered. The lemon is delectable, much like a frozen lemon Popsicle. When the cedar emerges from behind the lemon after the first 15 minutes or so, it is dry, pleasant, and very natural-smelling.


Bois de Cedrat impresses me because it takes two notes that can easily move into cleaning solution territory, and it manages to keep them fresh, natural, and complimentary to one another, a testament to the quality of Creed’s ingredients.

Anyone who has criticized Jo Malone’s Sweet Lime and Cedar for it’s simplicity and consequently questionable wearability, should hold this fragrance to the same set of standards, and then consider that less is sometimes more. If you love the notes and they are done really well, simplicity should never be an issue.


Unlike Sweet Lime and Cedar, which has good sillage and longevity (especially for Jo Malone), Bois de Cedrat’s sillage and longevity are both pretty poor, with the lemon opening note traveling better than the cedar. If given the choice, I would pick Sweet Lime and Cedar over Bois de Cedrat any day. It evolves into something magical when it combines with my skin’s chemistry… too bad SL&C is one of JM’s many discontinued beauties.
